Looking for any information on Jacob Parkomaki (b. 14 Dec 1866); his wife, Susanna Koykka (b. 17 Nov 1860); or her father, Matt Koykka. all believed to have been from Ylistaro.

Julia,
What sort of information do you seek? It helps if we know what you already know and what you hope to learn. Welcome to Finlander.

Julia,
From FFHA Births, I found Jacob and Susanna in Ylistaro. If I'm reading correctly, Jacob's parents were Solomon Hermansson Parkomäki and Sanna Mattsdotter. Susanna's were Matts ?Koykka and Greta Sophia ? Hard to read.
I cropped the images also for better viewing. You can save and enlarge, also.

Here's Jacob. Unfortunately, the rippi are only numbered pages, so it would have to be page by page searching to find the family. Maybe I'll get lucky.

Found both families in the 1867-1876 Rippikirja for Ylistaro.
Parkomäki in Untamala by #1 Rautio farm. Not only Salomon and his family, but his father and family. Looks like Jacob's mother died shortly after he was born and Salomon remarried.
Topparla by #18 Wästimäki farm has Susanna's family. Looks like surname Kääpälä.

Here's the 2 marriages of Salomon Hermansson.

Julia,
Here are the Rippilapset (Confirmation Register) for Jacob and Sanna. Notice they recorded him as Jaakko Parkkomäki, the Finnish spelling, and her as Sanna, the diminutive of Susanna. This was usually age 14-16.
Let me know if there's anything else. Did they emigrate? Were they married in Finland?

Found the family on several rippi images. Looks like they were married in Finland and there are two children listed, one on one rippi and another on the others. The first child Edla Liisa 28 Apr 1888 isn't listed on the others. Jaakko William 18 Nov 1889 is. Last image says went to Amerikka. As they are recorded up to 1896, I would imagine that's when they emigrated. On the first image, you will find they have Sanna recorded under Juha Pietari Bruun as his wife. Maybe she was married first to him, or it's an error. You'll see dates all the way to the right which show when and where they moved within a rippi. Ex 1888/225 in 1888, they moved to sheet #225.

I found both births. Both children were born to Jaakko and Sanna. Edla Liisa died June 3, 1888. Looks like the only one who emigrated was son Jakob William 6 Dec 1902. I did not find Jakob and Sanna on Migration Institute. I checked the moving out records from 1896-1900. Salomon Hermansson Parkkomäki emigrated in 1889 leaving wife and 6 children in Finland. I don't see them joining him, but they may have, or he may have gone back to Finland.

First of all, Karen, I am blown away by everything you found. I owe you a million thanks, and I wish I understood why I cannot uncover the information that you did. It is either my clumsiness with search engines, or my cluelessness in reading Finnish, or both.
Second, the story is that Jacob immigrated first in 1889, leaving Susanna and son Jacob Jr.; then, Susanna came to find him in 1897; they had two daughters in the US in 1898 and 1899, and then Jacob Jr. joined them later.
When you stated that you "stand corrected," can you tell me what information you were referring to? I am assuming it is about Salomon immigrating, because there is no family knowledge of that.

Julia,
When I said "I stand corrected," I meant I was in error about Jacob and Sanna and they did emigrate. Just wanted to be factual. Glad to be of help. Found Salomon by chance.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Karen, in PA, not too far from Philly.
