While I was at the swenson microfilm of the Swede-Finn lutheran church of Olympia, WA, looking for Algot Sten, I also noticed about 30 people born in Munsala. Too many to list but for Malaks/Malax, I found
Herman August Fant[born 12-22-1892], his wife Hanna Karolina Sinultu [sp?] [born 11-23-1889], and
Lena Dahl [Beckman] [born 5-20-1889].
For Övermark I found
Eric Henry Johnson [born 6-30-1871]with his wife Anna Sofia Nybeck[born 10-29-1870] of Oravais,and
John Peter Gullans [born 10-30-1873]with his wife Lena Maria Gullans [born 9-17-1868] of Närpes

Perhaps these names or the Munsala listings might interest somebody. I could not find Algot so had to make a postive of the trip:)

Was there other people born in Oravais than Anna Sofia Nybeck?

Carl W Fridlund, who I´m searching for lived in Olympia in 1913. He then called himself Charles Wilson, adresss: box 267, Olympia, Washington.
I just had to ask...

There may have been before I caught site of Övermark and Malaks/Malax so I will go back to that church and check for any others from Oravais and also Charles Wilson.

In the book about Lars Friis, page 101, there is reference to Carl-Charles Wilhelm Wilson (Kankkonen), b. 7 Mar 1861, d. 22 Mar 1918, Astoria, OR. Married 29 Dec 1888 to Susanna Beata Niemelä, 1872-1943. They had a son Fred, b. 1890.

Carl-Charles Wilson also had brothers Frans and Matts who came to America. I think this family came from Karleby parish.

Thank you Chuck for checking!!

"My" Charles Wilson/Carl W Fridlund was born 7.8.1891 in Oravais Finland and had brothers Anton (Wilson) and Johannes who emigrated to USA.
I am still searching for his deathplace and date. I believe he died 1936-1940 in Shelton, Aberdeen or Tacoma Washington.... continuing the research.

Thanks June!

Hi,
You have probably checked the Reinikke collection of Death Certificates in Washington and Oregon state counties which had high numbers of Finlanders? It's on Finngen, and covers the years 1907-1947.
For example:
Wilson, John W. Born July 1, 1888, Finland. Died Jan. 18, 1942, Veteran's Adm. Facility, American Lake WAsh. Usual residence Shelton, WA. Single. Mother: Sophie Munsin (possible spelling error?)

Did Carl Sundman offer any additional material?
Regards,
Syrene

Carl Fridlund

I have tried to check out the death certificates, but I´m not sure I´ve done them all (I have started to work again so my time is more limited)

Carl Sundman told me about Carl Fridlund and Emil Sundman working together at Shelton Logging Company, but he didn´t know when Carl died or where he is buried....
