Here's a start on your families.
1920 and 1930 the Frans (Frank) Hjalmer Hyrk family lived in Jeffrey, Cheshire, NH. In 1920 children at home were Mary 17, Esther H 12, Alma 6, Aina 4, Ruth 10/12 AND SON-IN-LAW Oscar Maki 23 AND wife Elma 20.
In 1930 Alma L is 16, Aina E 14 and Ruth M 11.

1930 Paul A Paronen and Alma S are in Christiana, New Castle, DE with son Paul W age 11 born MA.
Paul Paronen born 3 Jun 1887 in Tampere, Finland, died Nov 1969 in Lake Wood, Palm Beach, FL
Paul Waldemar Paronen born 18 Sep 1917 in MA died 21 Apr 2003 in Durham, NC. NC Deaths 1908-2004 says he was 85, married, 2 yrs college, was cremated. Died in Durham Regional Hospital.

More images. The second part of WWII image for Paronen may not be his. They were uploaded incorrectly on Ancestry, but the first part is his.

Here is the images for Oscar Maki. Born 8 Nov 1895, Oscar Salem Mäki, in Ahlainen, Finland. Died Aug 1986 in Lake Worth, Palm Beach, FL. In 1930, he was a single roomer in Fitchburg, MA, so they must have married after 1930.
I also found the Hyrk family in New Ipswich township, Hillsborough, NH in 1910 It says Frank Hyrk was married twice, 11 yrs in present marriage with Hilda. Says 6 children, 3 living. Elma, listed as Emma born Finland is 10, Selma, also found in other censuses as Mary S, 7 born MA, and Esther 2 NH. She is mistakenly listed as Ethel on Ancestry.
I don't know if this is Aina, but the matching vitals show Aina H Hunt 20.11.1915-1 Jul 1992 in San Francisco county, CA. Do you know if her husband was Charles F Hunt? There is a Charles F Hunt 15 Dec 1913 in NH-25 Jul 1990 in Los Angeles county, CA. MMN Whitcomb.

I will look to see what I can find on Elin and Paulus and their family in the US.
Glad I was able to help. I saw those first births of Frans and Anna Sofia, but didn't realize it was the same Frans. Not until later that I found he was married twice.

Matching husbands to Hyrk sisters
Esther Hyrk Stoffard 8 Sep 1907- Aug 1973 Jaffrey, Cheshire, NH
Carl Stoffard 11 May 1893-Jan 1969 Jaffrey Center, NH
Aina Hyrk Hunt as given previously. 20 Nov 1915-1 Jul 1992 San Francisco, CA
Oscar S Maki Jr, son of Elma, 22 Sep 1921-29 Dec 2007 Leominster, Worcester, MA
Flavel Lynch 1 Feb 1910- May 1977 Jaffrey, Cheshire, NH
Mary (Selma) Lynch 1 Oct 1902-Sep 1979 Jaffrey, NH
Ruth H Ross 15 Mar 1919-22 Jul 1993 Bedford, Middlesex, MA
Robert Ross 20 Oct 1892-7 Jul 1978 Bedford, MA
The Charles Arston is Charles Marston married to Alma.
In 1930 Esther Maki age 9 and Oscar Maki age 8 are in Jaffrey and are listed as grandchildren. So I would think that Mrs Waino Sormunen is Esther Maki. This is not proven.
Waino Sormunen 18 Mar 1919-31 Mar 2004 Westminster, Worcester, MA.
Esther may still be living. No death record found. She would have been born abt 1919-1920.

Obituary Archives.com had obits for Waino and for Oscar Maki Jr. Neither show survivors or next of kin. Very basic obit. Just name, date of death and funeral home. Oscar is buried in Mass. Veterans Cemetery in Winchendon, MA.
He was 86.
