Saloon vaimonsa kanssa 08.07.1824.

Does this mean his wife died in Salo on this date?

Thank you!

I think he moved to Salo with his wife on that date.

Happy New Year! Leo

Unless you already knew, a tiny bit of information may be proper here.
I think the parish referred here is that of Saloinen, which was earlier called Salo. It situates near the town of Raahe (Sw. Brahestad) on the coast of Gulf of Bothnia. It should not be confused with the town of Salo in the SW Finland, east of Turku.
