I have a query concerning Hilda Renlund, daughter of Johan Sanfrid Renlund, b. 1873, Finland, who came to Red Lodge, MT in 1894. He could have married Amanda Kakela and had several children, one of them Hilda. Can anyone find a marriage record and birth information about Johan and his children... probably in MT.

A family tree on Ancesty.com shows Johan Renlund, born Dec 1873, Raiha, Karleby, Finland; died 15.10.1951, MT; wife Amanda Kakela, born 26.11.1871, Laihia; died 28.9.1858, Carbon County, MT; married 5.1.1895, Red Lodge, Carbon County, MT; children Hilda, born Jul 1888, MT; and Ellen, born Jan 1896, MT.

1900 US Census shows Sanfrid Renlund, born Dec 1873, Finland, Grocer; wife Manda, born Nov 1871, Finland; daughters Ellen, born Jan 1896, MT; and Hilda, born Jul 1888, MT; Red Lodge, MT. Residing in the same household are John Saari, brother-in-law, born Aug 1875, Finland, Coal Miner; and wife Lena Saari, sister (of Sanfrid), born Jun 1874, Finland. Sanfrid Renlund and wife Manda had been married for 6 years. One child born to Manda and alive in 1900 (Ellen); so Manda is apparently not the mother of Hilda. John Saari and wife Lena had been married for one year, no children shown.

Many thanks for all that data... I'll pass it along. I did find a record in Finland that shows Johan Sanfrid was born 14 Feb 1873... and not 14 Dec 1873. I guess we won't be able to figure out Hilda, who was born 1888 which is 6 years before Johan Sanfrid came to the US.. maybe he adopted her??

The mystery of Hilda Renlund is solved.. she wasn't the daughter of Johan Sigfrid, as shown in the census... she was the sister of his wife Amanda..
