I am the great granddaughter of Peter Huttunen and Anna Karhunen (not sure of spellings) Who came to US in 1903 and settled as Niemi in SW Washington State. Passport list Kuopion pit as home parish.
Some came at later date from helsingfors and his name was Kalle Huttunen born in Karttula. Passenger list has his date of birth around 1887 and Anna would have been his aunt/stepmother. Petter Huttunen was first married to my great grandmothers sister who passed away.
