Hi,

I'm looking for Isak Isaksson Masus. Born 18.8.1847 in Malaks, Finland. I dont know when he emigrated but I think it was in the early 1900. I wonder what happened to him and where he lived? He never came back. He was married to Kajsa Lisa Masus, born 26.10.1846, died 10.11.1908.

He had several children: Johannes Isaksson (b. 13.2.1870, emigr. to Am.), William Isaksson (emigr. to Am.), Viktor (b. 1876), Emilia Isaksdotter (b. 1882), Isak Isaksson (b. 7.10.1887, emigr. to Am. 1909?).

I'm thankful for all information I can find about him and about his sons i America.

/Jessica

Hi Jessica,
It appears that Isak Masus son's William/Viljam and Isak lived in San Francisco, California in 1929. Here is a passenger record of Isak Isaksson Masus with destination of going to brother Viljam Isaksson's residence in 1929. There is an earlier passenger record from 1909 which I am posting too, and it appears that Isak Isaksson Masus was going to Bisbee, Arizona. Also from the Institute of Migration is more on Isak Isaksson Masus, passport and passenger record 1909, and Johannes Isaksson's who originally went to Snohomish, Washington in 1901. I also found Viktor's passport/passenger record in 1901.

Best Regards,
Denise :)

Hi,

Thank you for all the information! This was interesting, now I wonder when this father Isaac came to America. Is there any way I can find out more about him and when he has come to Snohomish, Washington?

Many thanks, Jessica

Hello!

I found something strange for isak Masus on the Canadian Passanger list. It says that he is going to Bisbee Arizona to his BROTHER Isak Masus. Coud that not be his father instead?

Hi Kerstin,
Is this a passenger record from Canada that I have not posted that you are referring to? I don't see an Isak going to his brother Isak's in Bisbee, Arizona on what I posted. Post the passenger record that you are referring to.
So far I have not had any luck finding any of them in census records, or a passenger record for the father Isak Isaksson Masus.

Best Regards,
Denise

Hi Jessica and Kerstin,
O.K. I see that I neglected to attach page 2 (4th passenger record above) on my first reply of the passenger record from 1909 for Isak Masus. I was attaching so many records on that first reply, I missed one! thought I had them all! :o That is strange that Isak Masus is going to "brother" Isak Masus in Bisbee, Arizona. I don't know what to make of that.

Still looking for more,
Denise :)

Here's a WWI Draft card for an Isak Isakson born Oct 7, 1887. This could be your Isak.

Jessica

Hi!

This was very good news. Thanks all of you! I didn't have the dates of all his children when exaktly they died, only on a few of them. It's difficult to find anything on the father Isaac, born 1847 when he also had a son named Isaac, born 1887. I've heard that the father died after just a short time in America. I dont know how.

Thank you!

Hej Kerstin!

Tack för ditt svar! Tyvärr kommer jag inte åt det här dokumentet du hänvisar till - kan du skicka det som bilaga på något sätt? Det låter spännande så jag skulle gärna se det.

Hälsningar Jessica

[QUOTE=Denise;26764]

Hi Denise!

I've found a letter dated Okt. 23rd 1921, adressed to Johan Isakson, Starrs Box 582 Utah, USA. This is a letter from Viktor in Finland to his brother Johannes Isaksson Masus (born 1870). In this letter he has also written the adresses to the two other brothers Isak and Willjam (Wilhelm in your papers). Isak lived by then in San Fransisco, California (3900 Folsom st.?) and Willjam on 141 Brante st. in San Fransisco, California.

In the letter I also find out that Johannes left Finland in 1898-1899. I dont know if the fader Isak left at the same time. But I'm still hoping to find out something about him.

Still nothing on father Isak, but I found William and Isak in SF in 1920 and William in 1930. Also found William's WWI Draft card. In 1920, it looks like William or Bill in 1930, married a widow with children. They have different last names. In 1920, Isak's age is off by abit. Didn't find Johannes/Johan/John in UT. Note the many spellings of Isakson.
