Of course, that would be assuming that Mamie never married or married another Anderson.

I would like to check her in the census for Seattle 1920 or 1930. Where can I found them?

Washington Digital Archives does not have 1930 Census data [yet].

There are these two marriages [there are others but these two are the ones that would be approximately the right time frame:


Record Series:Marriage Records
Collection: King Marriage Records ?
County: King
reference number: kingcoarchmcvol76_467
groom's name: Edward T Hamer [from Astoria, Oregon]
bride's name: Mamie Anderson
recording date:
marriage date: 07-25-1939
[witnesses were: Mr. A.R. Anderson and Mrs. A.R. Anderson]
================================================== =====

Record Series: Marriage Records
Collection: King Marriage Records ?
County: King
reference number: kingcoarchmcvol59_421
groom's name: Clifford Ossinger
bride's name: Mamie Anderson
recording date:
marriage date: 9-12-1936
[witnesses were: D.F. Ossinger and Dorothy Stancik]
================================================== =====

Then the only one that is even possibly close [though unlikely] given your other dates:

Record Series: Marriage Records
Collection: King Marriage Records ?
County: King
reference number: kingcoarchmcvol22_337
groom's name: Harold H Peterson
bride's name: Mamie Anderson [signed as Mamie M. Anderson]
recording date:
marriage date: 08-11-1928
[witnesses were: Ora L. Dearinger and Fay or Jay Justice]

Thank you Ilmari. Can you see Mamies parents in an earlier cencus?

I will try, but if it isn't in Washington I won't have any access.

Someone with Ancestry.com could try.

Do you have any idea what Mamie's father's name was?

christina
19-11-09, 22:30
No I don´t know the fathers first name, just Anderson, her mother was Lizzie (Ekola) born in jan. 20. 1886. Mamie had two brothers George and William. I have no dates for them either.
Thanks

I wonder if this is anything?

There is a Lizzie Anderson in the 1910 census, living in Seattle and is the right age [24] and is a "servant" but listed as "single". The name of the family she is working for is difficult to make out, something like "Osted".

It shows a date of 1905 for year of immigration.

Collection: 1910 King County (Federal) ?
County: King

county: King
age: 24

Anderson should be her maiden name. I have the information that Lizzie immigrated 1887 in America with her parents 1 year old. I have a note, she was living in the Seattle area when she was married with Anderson. She recided in Butte MT in 1950 and was married with Salo (=last namne) (first name=?).
Thank you for trying

Christina,
Relating to Hilda Sofia Ekola, I found her first marriage on Family Search Pilot, in MI, 21 Dec 1907, bride: Hilda Sofia Ekola, 19, 1888, and groom: Heikki Myllyaho, 22, 1885 Finland, married in Ishpeming, Marquette, MI.
Bride's parents: Isaac Ekola and Maria Freeman. Groom's parents: Lucas Myllyaho and Krela Pokela. Looks like Myllyaho became Mills. I wouldn't be too concerned about misspellings. I'll do more searching. I have a full Ancestry subscription.

Here's Henry Mill in the WWI Draft Reg. Wife Hilda S in Ishpeming. In the 1920 and 1930 Census in Ishpeming, it was just Henry and Hilda, no children listed. You'll notice on Henry's draft card, it says he lost both eyes.
I also found a Lizzie Salo returning from a visit to Finland with her children. Going to join husband in Ishpeming, MI. Don't know if it's your Lizzie.

christina
20-11-09, 23:41
Thank you Karen.
I think you have found the right persons. I have that Henry Mills was born 1885 in Finland, so he changed his name from Heikki Myllyaho.That is a problem, to guess what name they took when they came to USA. Strange you didn´t see their children!
I think Lizzie Salo is the right person too. The year of birth is 1886, her parents lived in Ishpeming. But the 2 children was new information. She must had been really young in her first marriage with Anderson.

Christina

Karen Norwillo
21-11-09, 17:19
If this is your Lizzie Salo, I would guess she probably married for the second time about 1907-1908 based on the 3 year old child. If she married the second time in MT, perhaps the first husband Anderson died there. Just a thought. I'll do some checking there and in WA.

Karen thank you. In the sukujutut-forum I asked for Heikki Myllyahos birthday and place. Nobody seems to know that, but the family was found in the Cencus 1910 Ishpeming Ward 4, Marquette, Michigan as Myllylä Henry, Hilda and Elenora. Do you found them in the cencus 1920?

Christina

Karen Norwillo
24-11-09, 20:02
I've searched everywhere for them in the 1920 Census. Other than the other Henry Mills with no children, no luck. I searched every possible variable of Myllyaho, Myllyla, Mill and Mills. Interestingly, there were two Henry and Hilda S Mill in Ishpeming, both Henry born 1885. I looked through the entire 1920 Ishpeming Ward 4 hoping to find them, but nothing. They may have moved to elsewhere in the city, but in 1920 the choices are huge, hundreds of pages in many wards. I looked at the MIGenWeb for Marquette county and couldn't find the births of Eleanora or Selma. Attached is the 1910 image. Karen

24-11-09, 21:31
Thank you Karen for trying to help. I search today in http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/#start among 200 marriages to find Lizzie Ekolas marriage with Anderson, but I didn´t find anything either. From the cencus 1920 I see that Eleonora has to be born in the end of 1908 (16/12 year old). The girls must have died young.
Yesterday I found the death of Lizzies older sister Sanna Maja in Raittiuskansan kalenteri : Indexes compiled by Rev. Les E. Niemi, Obituaries, Ekola, Sanna Maria Ishpeming MI 1902:166. (sukuforum).
2928 Is it possible to find the parents Isaac Ekola and Maria Freeman in the census 1900 for Ishpeming?

Christina,
Here's Mary Eckola in 1900 and 1910. She was already a widow. Unfortunately, the 1890 Census is destroyed. When I have time after Thanksgiving, I will try wading through that Ishpeming Census to see if I can find any more info. Happy Thanksgiving.

Christina,
I searched the entire 1920 Census for Ishpeming, all 11 wards, and found no other Mills or Myllyaho, Myllyla etc. The only Mill in 1920 was the one I found previously with no children. And I found no Toivisto.

Hi,
From a website:http://seekingmichigan.org/discover-collection?collection=p129401coll7
I found there are Mills, Ekola, etc. names that may prove helpful to you in your search, although may not be the exact people you are searching for. You can use the advanced search to type in specific last names and township, or counties you want to search, or just type in a name in the search box and it will come up with death records for all people with that name that died between the years 1897-1920 in Michigan. They are 99% done with the transcribing, so there may be a small amount missing.
Good luck!

Best Regards,
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, :D
