Hi Finlanders,
Discussed the Swedish Finn family of Floyd Carlson, currently in Olympia WA, but born in Rochester WA around 1920. His father was named John Carlson, born in 1895 in Övermark Finland. Emigrated sometime before 1911, went to Berkley CA to visit his sister married to a Fors. John met and married Mary Englund, born in Rochester WA in 1896, and they settled there on a farm off Independence Road.

I would love to find his family's name in Finland, both father Carlson, and mother Mary. Mary's father, Erick Englund was born May 25, 1855 somewhere in Vasa province and her mother Anna Lovisa Backman was born August 9, 1866, in Esse Finland. Their first child was born in 1893 in Rochester.

I've searched Ellis Island, TALKO, Ancestry.com, and Migration Institute with no results yet. Maybe someone out there has one of these persons in their computer files??
