Matti Verneri Hyyppä was born on 16 Sept 1891 in Hyyppä, Kälviä, Finland. He died 7 October 1967 in the USA. I found this information on the net:

Matt Hyyppa
Death Residence Localities
ZIP Code: 55805
Localities: Duluth, Saint Louis, Minnesota

His social security number was issued in Washington. I don't know if that "means" something, e.g. he first got there from Europe etc.

I wonder if he had a family in the States. Could anyone help me to find more info on this person? Thanks.
