Canadian Border Crossings has them arriving Quebec 20 Aug 1920 on SS Melita. They had sailed from Liverpool 13 Aug. They are going to Johan Wesanen Box 20 Cromwell, MN. Aino Elida Wesanen is 30, Siiri (Suri) Elida is 9 and Rauha Cecilia is 7. Says from Merikarvi Korikonica Finland, their spelling, not mine. Father of Aino, Oscar Lehtonen in Finland. I found an Aino Elida Wesanen in the MN Death Index born 10 Oct 1889 and died 3 Feb 1858 in Carlton County, MN. I found a Rauha C. Mattson born 22 Nov 1912 and died 17 Oct 1989 in Mille Lacs County, MN. Karen
