there is one or two more question mark Gullans/Gullens but I thought to give you this because perhaps they lived in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and moved down to retire in Florida.

Found him and family in 1930 census in Bronx, NY. Unfortunately, the image won't open completely to attach. Information says, John Gull, 41, Finland, US 1907,married, wife Elsie, 33, son Atlas, 6. In other documents I found, son's name was Atler.
FL Death Index has Atler Gull died 1936 Dade county, FL. SSDI has Atler Gull born 22 Dec 1923 NY, died 3 Aug 2000 Lake Worth, FL. In US Public Records, he and Mary Gull were in Lake Worth, FL. Mary Gull 1 Aug 1922 in MI, died 21 Mar 2003 Lake Worth FL. From multiple passenger lists from 1943-1945 Atler worked on ships as an oiler and wiper, whatever that is. I also found him and Mary in the FL Divorce Index. Says they were divorced in 1944. They must have gotten together again as they were living together at the same address in the Public Records at ages 85 and 84.
Here's a copy of Johan Gulls immigration arrival in 1907. Line 17.

Henrik, do you have more information on Simon Erik Johansson Snickars B. 17 August 1879 Solf D 1 Nov 1975 Amerika? Or Brita Erika Uppgård b 17 July 1881, Sundom? Child E.E. Snickars . They are on your TALKO PROJECT Gedcom Group Sheet for Family F58096.

Simon and Brita are my husband's grandparents. I am looking for birth records, marriage records, family stories, pictures anything about the towns where they lived in Vaasa Finland.

Anything you have will be appreciated.

Thank you
