I have been on a serious hunt :) I have been able to find some info regarding G/Grandparents and G/G/Grandparents but am at a loss when it comes to the wifes. Here are the names. If any sound familiar PLEASE email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
WUORINEN (a.k.a. Vuarinen)
Oscar Wuorinen (census says Vuarinen) married Helena??
-Children are:Ina?,Francis (Frank),Minnie (now Minnie Maki),Olja?
LEIVISKA (or Leviska, Levesque?)
Frank Wuorinen married Kathryn Leviska but I can't find anything with her family and don't know the correct spelling.
-Children are:Lila,Benhart,Edwin,Helen K,Marvin,Vieno and Norman.
RIPPA (or Riippa)
Joseph Rippa married Mary??? Evonen (maybe?)
-their children are: James,Yalmer, Helmi,Andrew,Julia,Lempi,John (who owned logging camps in Copper Country and land called King Phillip),Alex, Arnold and a couple more I couldn't read.
RAUTIO (or Rudio, Raudio)
James Rippa married Eileen Rautio
I can't find anything on Eileen or her family. Don't know the correct spelling. I know that it was an arranged married when she was 14 and she came from Finland. Don't know if she was sent for and then married right away or if she has family here.
-Children are: Harold Rippa, Walter Rippa, Arlene Rippa.
I really hope any of these names rings a bell to someone. I have tried census after census with nothing.
