I am searching for any information on my paternal great, grandfather Sylvester "Vesteri" Joas (Joos in Finland?). He married my great, great grandmother Anna Maria Linnemaki in Alajarvi Finland, and emigrated to the US in 1911. I believe he was originally from Veteli Finland, but his family was suppose to be Swedish. His father was Andrew Joas and mother Mary Linnemon?
Vesti made passage for my grandmother and their two-year old daughter Aune in 1913. I believe they may have gone to Nelsonville, Ohio to be with relatives (sister Anna and brother in-law Matti). Their second daughter was born in St. Louis County, Wisconsin.

Vesti sadly died in 1916 from black lung working in the coal mines. All I have from him is a photo of him in the hospital with his young family. I would appreciate any information anyone might have on these Joas from Finland.
My email is Thank you.
