I have another request, but not much information. I explained that Järvi may not have been the complete name, but this is all the data they have:

Alma Eva Henriksdotter Järvi, b. 24 May 1885, Noormarkku. To US before 1904 and married Otto Nyman/Newman.
Father: Henrik Järvi, b. 19 Jan 1855, d. 5 Oct 1933 Changed his name to Henry Lake in the US.
Mother: Alexandra Johansdotter?, b. 28 Jul 1855 possibly came from Pomarkku or Norrmarkku

It appears that all these people came to the US at the same time and lived in Superior, WI

We have information about Alma's husband and family, but nothing more about her parents and family. So any information will be appreciated.

There is a family tree on Ancestry about Henrik Järvinen/Henry Lake. Not more than what you have about Alexandra, but alot on him. Says born Kivijärvi. Parents Isaak Otto Isaaksson Wanhatalo 1810-1885 and Eva Kristina Gustafsdotter Siliekangas.

Thanks, Karen. I was looking around HisKi and saw that Wanhatalo and wondered if they could be parents of Henrik I know that Kivijärvi is found in several parishes.. wonder which one Henrik was from. I'll pass that along.

A matching Alexandra Johansdotter was born in Kankaanpää 28 Jul 1855.
The family moves to Pomarkku arriving there 4.10.1860 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t6093005) to Honkakoski village. Fortunately they appear at page 1 in the communion book :D
Alexandra disappears in 1871-1880 book (image (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/pomarkku/rippikirja_1871-1880_mko65-79/kuvat/7.jpg))
The reason can be found in marriage records on 19 Jan 1875 (date of bans, marriage on 1 July) (image (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/pomarkku/vihityt_1874-1885_mko122-123/kuvat/6.jpg)). Spouse Henrik Järvinen Tervamäki.
Tervamäki farm: 1871-1880 (image (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/pomarkku/rippikirja_1871-1880_mko65-79/kuvat/222.jpg)) and 1881-1890 (image (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/pomarkku/rippikirja_1881-1890_mko80-96a/kuvat/244.jpg)).
Henrik Isaksson Järvinen was born 19 Jan 1855.
Daughter Alma Eva Alexandra was born 24 April 1884 (not May 1885) in Pomarkku (original image (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/pomarkku/syntyneet_1882-1885_mko39-41/kuvat/58.jpg)).
The family moves to Karijoki on 1 April 1890.
Karijoki (Bötom) does not have later records at SSHY/FFHA site, but anyway this is the family :cool:

P.S. Henrik was born at Kivijärvi village of Pomarkku according to HisKi (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t6087648). So Karen's find matches there.

Wow, thanks so much for that. I'm juggling a couple other queries, so I have to settle down and get these figured out.. we figured Alexandra would be hard to find.. but now we're making headway.. :)

Worth noting about Alexandra's mother, as Pomarkku links I gave above give her father and stepmother.
Alexandra Johansdotter with parents and sibblings in Kankaanpää: http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/kankaanpaa/rippikirja_1852-1858_mko86-104/431.htm
Father Johan Esaiasson Rantala born 2 Sep 1814 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t2712420).
Mother Lisa Johansdotter Raiskio born 7 Nov 1818 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t2712785), died on 22 Sep 1858 in child birth (link (http://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/kirjat/Kirkonkirjat/kankaanpaa/syntyneet-vihityt-kuolleet_1836-1863_jk516-517/258.htm)).
Johan remarries 10 Jul 1859 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t2718966) Maria Eriksdotter. Though CB says she's from Siikainen, she is probably born in Pomarkku 27 Dec 1813 (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski?en+t6084899), as that's the only match.
