Hello! Here's the infomation on my grandfather, Frans Oskar Karp (Skarp(USA) or Karp or Karpp)

Liisa Johnsintr Karp
birth: 3 Aug 1843
Revonlahti, Oulu, Finland
Death: 1930 27 Mar 1930
Age: 86
Oulu, Oulun Laani, Finland

Johan Johasson Karp 1805 –

Maria Henriksdotter Nikola 1806 –

Johanna Sofia Skarp 1874 –
Frans Oskar Skarp 1879 – 1935
Juhana Iisakki Karp 1881 –
Maria Emelia Karp 1883 – 1885

What happened to Frans Oskar Skarp's first wife? She died somewhere in Finland before 1905??? Then Frans arrived America around 1905. They had a son, Edward (Edvard?) Karp/Skarp. Edvard lived in USA for a short time. His father, Frans' sister, Johanna Sofia Karp lived in USA for a shor time. Then she adopted and brought Edvard Karp back to Finland. Who did Johanna Sofia marry to? When did Edvard die?
I was told that Juhana Iisakki Karp (as Isaac) moved to California, USA. I am not sure about it.

I tried to find their father's name. I was told that they do not have a father because my father and his siblings were illegitimate.

I did search for Liisa Johanintr Karp's burial site but I couldn't find hers.

Also, I would like to get in touch with Johanna Sofia Karp's alive relatives as well as with Edvard Karp/Skarp's alive relatives.

That's all for now. Looking forward to hearing from you.

grandson of Frans Oskar Karp/Skarp
