I have a request for help finding anything about this family. It's believed they lived in Pelkie, MI or around there.

Matti Johansson Pelttari, b. 29 Sep 1838, Pudasjärvi, died 23 Oct 1925 in the US, married to Lena (Magdalena) Mattsdotter Hyttinen, b. 10 May 1809, Pudasjärvi, d. 5 May 1916 in the US. They had two daughters, born in Pudasjärvi:
- Greta Lena, b. 20 Mar 1871, d. 25 Mar 1955, L'Anse, MI. Married to a man named Haro and had a daughter Emma Haro. There are more Haro children.
- Amanda, b. 15 Sep 1874. Nothing more known about her.

Family in Finland would welcome any info. about the Haro family.

Thanks.

Thank you, Becky. I'll send it on to Finland. Naturally, all the children would be dead now, and whether there are descendants?? No way to know.

It is listed as "Laura Pelttan" but after looking at it, the last name is Pelttari, and the death date is the same.

This query was posted on the ancestry.com message boards:

Andrew Nissila was born in Finland in June 1868. He immigrated in 1889 to Hancock, MI, where he met and married Amanda Pelttari. Their children were: Edith, Andrew, Arthur, Hilda, Alfred, George, and Olga. I believe George was the only male to have any children. I don't know about the females. Hilda married John M. Maki, and may have died in childbirth. Can anybody help me find any other descendents of Andrew and Amanda?

Another message posted on ancestry.com:

Andrew Nissila (son of Matt and Britta Okerlund) married Amanda Pelttari (daughter of Matt Pelttari and Lena Ojala) about 1894 (Have been unable to locate marriage record.) They were residents of Franklin Township, outside of Hancock, Houghton County, Michigan. They had 7 children--Edith(b.1895), Andrew(1897), Arthur(1898), Hilda(1901), Alfred(1902), George(1904), and Olga(1908). Hilda Nissila married John M.Maki 16 July 1921, when John was 25 years old. John served in WWI. I don't know whether Edith or Olga married. Also, Amanda Pelttari had a sister, Greta M. Pelttari, who married Isaias Haro in 1889 in Hancock. I am interested in finding any descendents of these people.

I forgot to include the name of the person who posted the queries on ancestry.com.

CNEdwa

I do not have a subscription, so I am not able to get their email contact. Maybe someone on the board would be able to do that.

Would anyone with a subscription to Ancestry try to find who CNEdwa is who posted the queries about Pelttari, Nissila, Haro - they're looking for descendants. I'd like to put them in contact with the family in Finland who is also looking for information.

Thanks.

June,
I left a message for that person on Ancestry and asked her to contact me if she's willing to share her email address. They've changed the format and you have to go through Ancestry first to get an address.
