I have a request from Finland for help finding any information about Frans Reinhold Fagernäs, b. 27 Nov 1890, Kaustby. Emigrated to the US 4 Nov. 1913. That's all they know about him. I think his parents were Johan Persson and Edla. Would be grateful for anything about him.

Thanks.

June,
I found Frans Fagernäs arriving 6 Dec 1913 destination Mt Vernon NY to sister Alexandra Fagernäs. Found him in 1920 in Butte, Silver Bow, MT and in WWI Draft cards in St Lake City, UT. Also found possible brothers John and Emil and maybe a sister Maria. All give father as John or Johan Fagernäs of Gamlakarleby. Also alot of Fagernäs from Larsmo.
John Fagernäs and wife Sophia lived in Butte, Silver Bow in 1930, along with son Roy. Emil and wife Edla lived in Klamath, OR. John born abt 1889 and died 18 Mar 1943 MT Death Index. Sophia born abt 1885 died 24 Aug 1949 MT Death Index.

June,
Apparently, there were 2 Emil Fagernas. I found an Emil Fagernas on the MT Death Index and the OR Deaths. The one in Butte, Silver Bow was born c.1899 and died 22 Feb 1944 at age 45 SB5714. The one in Klamath Falls, OR was Emil John Fagernas born 19 Aug 1887 in Replot and died 13 Apr 1945 and is buried in Linkville Pioneer Cemetery. This is the one married to an Edla Carl-Augustsdotter Akerman in 1906. Says father Johan Erik Fagernas of Replot.
In the 1928 Directory for Butte, MT are Emil Fagernas miner at 526 E Broadway. No wife listed. Also John Fagernas (Sophie) miner ACM lived 1815 Monroe St.

Thanks, Karen. I'll send the data to Finland and let them determine which Emil belongs to them. Evidently Fagernäs was found in several parishes. I think the family in Finland is in Kausby or Terjärv.

Yes, seems like there were several Fagernäs families in the US. One says Larsmo, one gives Replot and one Gamlakarleby. I found an Emil Fagernäs arriving 1922 going to brother John in Butte at the address found in that 1928 Directory. Says his father is Leander Fagernäs of Larsmo. The parents of Emil in OR are Johan Erik Fagernäs and Maria Lovisa Rönnqvist according to a tree found on Ancestry. No siblings listed.
