They met and got married. Two children was born in the states, the first child (ev Helena.) died very young in America, the second child Mildred was born 2.4.1912.
The family came back to Finland in 1916.
Is there a way to get information on where and when they were married and where and when the children was born

Thank You Denise for a rapid reply.

These are the right people but it seem like Edla and Johannes found each other’s some time later and probably not in Eureka.
Unfortunately I dont have any information on where Johannes (Jan) Smeds vent when he arrived to America

Hi,
If the previous post is your Johannes Smeds, this is his sister, Lina Carlson in Massachusetts, but he isn't on the census.

Hi

I don’t think this is the right Johannes Smeds, both Johannes and Smeds are very common names.
Johannes Smeds was the only child in Simon Erik Smeds first marriage with Amanda Johannesdr Backman. The book Befryndade bondesläkter i Österbotten tells that he left for America at the age of 16.

Hi,
Looking at Ancestry.com, there are very few Johannes Smeds that come anywhere close to what information you have as far as birth year or immigration. There is one in the 1910 Census may be a possibility. Since they returned to Finland in 1916, this is the only census year to find Johannes, and then it can't be proven it is him, without the marriage to Edna (Edla) in a census or actual marriage record in the United States.

Hi,
Here is a William Smeds that fits all your dates. Very confusing, but thought I'd pass it along. Was his middle name William?
