I have a request from Finland for help in finding a relative who emigrated to America ca 1913. Johan Richard Fagernäs, born in Terjärv Oct. 3, 1884 and married to Anna-Lisa Mickelsdr Ekman born in Vörå August 8, 1876. They got married June 6, 1913. Have no idea where they lived, but would appreciate any help locating them.

Thanks.

Someone found an immigration record showing that 13 Aug 1913 John Fagernäs and Anna arrived in Boston on the Laconia with "Mk Anna ja Anna Fagernäs". Anna had a daughter Anna from her first marriage. The family was going to join Johan's brother-in-law, Jac Wörlund, 77 Downington Ave, Salt Lake, UT. Is it possible to find anything more about them in Utah?

Thanks, K-G. I think that the Fagernäs name became Naess, Ness, Niss in the US. Someone has found the following which I believe is the family. Anna Eckman's mother Anna's maiden name was Heikius, and daughter Anna Eckman/Ekman (below) was born 29 Dec 1900 in Finland. The 1930 census shows them in Calif. working in a bakery, and a Jack Worlund is one of the employees - he could be the son of the Jac (Jacob) Worlund that Johan and Anna Fagernäs were going to visit in Salt Lake City. The 1920 census shows they are in CA and have a 6-year-old son Alfons, b. ca 1914 in Utah. The family used the name Niss at that time. Farther down I see a Waldimir Niss, b. 1895 - maybe in Finland. I'll have to ask the family in Finland if there was a Waldemar Fagernäs born in 1895. It's confusing, but I hope these are clues as to what happened to Johan and Anna Fagernäs. Looks like they had only 1 child named Alfons - wonder what became of him? And wonder when his parents John and Anna Niss died?

Just found another piece of the puzzle. Henry Eckman was murdered 2 July 1907 in Bingham, UT. Is there any way to find out about the murder - perhaps newspaper article?

Wow! I hit the jack-pot. Thank you all for helping find articles and cemetery records. There are lots of people in Finland who'll be happy to get them.

I just received a pleasant surprise. K-G Molander went to the cemetery and took pictures of the tombstones for Henry Ekman and Jacob Worlund. And the pictures are on the way to the families in Finland.

Thanks, K-G.
