Here is something:

Alma Maria was born on August 14, 1877 in Lokalahti, not in Rymättylä. The birth record is at: http://www.digiarkisto.org/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lokalahti/syntyneet_1876-1884_jk70/5.htm. Her parents were Axel Tobias Samuelsson Rönnstrand and his wife Wilhelmina Adamsdotter. The family is also here: http://www.digiarkisto.org/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/lokalahti/rippikirja_1871-1880_mko109-120/90.htm. Apparently the name Rönnstrand was translated to Finnish as Pihlainen at some point.

hope this helps

It was a big help for me to get the information from You. It was my hope to find relatives up there in Finland, but maybe too long time has passed for that. Anyway I thank You very much :-).

Kind regards

Frede,
Here's what I found thus far about Erland, used Ronstrand in US. Settled in San Diego, CA. Found Naturalization in 1912 in CA and Last Will and Testament in 1915. I want to go back and crop the Will as it has someone else's on the same image. Will post in a few minutes.

Here's the Will. As you will see, there is another daughter Lempi and Selma is married, now Selma Demond. I found CA Births with surname Desmond and mother's maiden name Ronstrand. I will check further.

All I've been able to find so far about Axel (Aksel) Ronstrand is his Naturalization document in Grays Harbor, WA from 1912 and his WWI Draft Registration card.
