This request for help is from the May issue of FAR:

I'm looking for information about my great-grandfather Matti Mursu, born Oct. 1868 in Haukipudas. He went to Ellis Island 19 May 1902 on the Cymric, going to Mass City, Michigan. He was a widower and left my grandmother Jenni Marie, 18 months old, to live with relatives in Kello, Finland.

That is all the information I have about him except a photo that says "Werner Marquette, Mich." It would be wonderful to know how long he lived, whether he married and had a family in the US, or anything at all about him.
