These are the husbands of my grandfather’s sister Ida Maria Mattsdotter Finström born on Finnabba farm, Purmo 02.04.1887 according to church records in Finland.

The record also gives her marriage’s which probably came from the churches in America:
“Married 1st 15.10.1904 in USA to HEGBLOM, Michel. Born 10.03.1887 in Vörå. Fem barn.” Must have the year wrong.
“Married 2nd 16.10.1919 in USA to SAMSON, Samuel. Born 06.01.1873in Vörå. Fyra barn.”

Marriage license dated Oct. 12, 1904 has Michael Neblom as 26 years old and his father’s name as Simon Neblom.

Declaration of intention dated April 17, 1905 has his name as Mike Negbloom.
