View Full Version : Searching for David Oskar Nurmi-Marjamäki

08-11-13, 00:07
I'm new to this Forum and I'm hoping to find out more information David Oskar Nurmi-Marjamäki, my paternal grandfather. He was born sometime in 1882. His passport lists Noormarkku as his home parish and lists him as a crofter's son. He left Hanko, Finland on 11 Mar 1903 bound for Biwabik, Minn, USA.

He died in a mine accident in Butte, Montana in 1917 so very little is known about him, his parents or where he came from and why he left (other than 1903 was in the middle of the great migration).

Thanks in advance for any information,

James M Driskell

This is a little strange...

Noormarkku Rippikirja, 1861-1862, Klåsmark Kallio; Karl Fredrik, born 10.4.1843, Påmark, is shown with the patronymic Adamsson. The 4th column shows he came from a farm on page 143 of the previous book (1854-1860).

Noormarkku Rippikirja, 1854-1860, Kläsmark Kallio; Karl Fredrik is now shown with the patronymic Katarinasson; which would make more sense than Adamsson, if the HisKi entry for his birth was correct. The 4th column shows Karl Fredrik came from Påmark in 1859.

Two names above that of Karl Fredrik, is Kaisa Lisa Davidsdr, born 20.4.1822, Norrmark. The 4th column shows she came from Påmark in 1858. She is now the wife of Matts Davidsson Kallio (first name on the page) and could well be the mother of Karl Fredrik.

Matts Davidsson and Katarina Elisabeth Davidsdotter were married 6.3.1859, Noormarkku.

Unfortunately, online records for Påmark are not available prior to 1864.

Noormarkku Rippikirja, 1833-1839, Klåsmark; Caisa Lisa, born 20.1822; shown with parents and siblings (first grouping of names). The last column shows she went to Påmark in 1837.

HisKi shows Maria Sofia, born 20.6.1839, out of wedlock, Påmark; mother Caisa Lisa Davidsdr, age 17 (the right age): http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski/4v68im?en+0409+kastetut+1708

Wow! You have certainly given me lots of information to digest. I'm sure that I'll have many more questions after I have had a chance to study you information. I wish I could read the written Finnish better, but with your clear text, I'll also try to become familiar with the written version.

More later,

As we say here, "Holy Mackerel!" I never expected such a flood of information. It will take me some time to absorb this treasure trove. After which, I'm sure that I will have many questions.

Thanks again,
