I have some Rautio families in my database. Uno Alfred Rautio, b. ab 1920 married Jeanne Esther Larson, b. 1921 in Astoria, Oregon.

I have no information about Uno Alfred's parents. Could it be from this family?

Sylvia Rautiala Cook was my grandmother, and her parents Eino Rautiala (1890) and Hilja Tossvainen (1895) are from the Pyahjarvi area. They definitiely lived in Quincy, MA and many lived in Massachusetts. The children of Eino and Hilja are: Alan, Eino, Tauno, Ray, Sylvia, Helen, Hilja, Helvi, Elsi, and Arvo. According to my family, and the original family passport: Tauno, Arvo, Eino and Sylvia were born in Finland, the rest in Massachusetts. Ray recently passed away and he lived in Chicago. There may be some more children but these are the great aunts and uncles that I knew!

Eino worked at Grossman's until his death and that was his WWII draft card that was found online.

I am not familiar with the other Rautiala family listed. I think my grandmother told me she had cousins in Minnesota.

If you want I can get around to asking them if they know of an Otto.

Best of luck. Let me know if I can be of further help.

I am searching for Hilja Tossvainen's parents in Finland!

I also have several Rautio's in my database. I have no idea what became of them. This branch came from my grandmother's twin sister by marriage. Family name was Orajarvi. I don't know if they emigrated. Names are Oskari, Olof, Maria, Isak, Johan, Jaako, and Erik. As always, I'm interested in connections. Let me know if these names ring a bell. Bruce
