I have been looking for my grandfather Jacob Suomi and his brothers Evert,
August and Matt. There may also have been a sister. I have been told that
used the name Mattson when they first came here from Finland and a couple of
the brothers (Jacob Matt) changed their name to Suomi.. Their father's
was also Mat. I don't know who came to the USA first but I am told that the
father Mat and August stayed in the Washington area. I have found Jacob and
Suomi (Mattson) but have never been able to find anything else. Jacob
Suomi (Mattson) lived in Bessemer and Ironwood Michigan. I have information
them, but not the others.
If you have info to share, please let me know.
