First of all, they probably just changed the last name to Anderson after arriving to the States because Pyykkö was a hard name for Americans. This might be Matilda's travel record (from the Institute of Migration website):
Pyykkö Mathilda 03.08.1907

Which would make this Johan Emil:
Pyykkö John 03.08.1907

I don't have full access to the website, since you have to pay 20 EUR a year for that. If you can get someone to check those records they might be able to make sure it's the same people.

The record from Utajärvi:
p 231 Ahmas by (Ahmas village)
Torpare m. fl. Litt. P (Crofters etc. Letter P)
Pyykkö
Inh. (lodger) Sigfrid Sigfridss. 28 SEP 1817
Hu (wife) Kaisa Isaaksdr 2 OCT 1823
Dr (daughter) Maria Kaisa Sigfridsdr 31 DEC 1842
Dr Elsa Greta Sigfridsdr 1 MAY 1844
Dr Anna Lena Sidfridsdr 1 DEC 1845
Son (son) Isaak Sigfridss 30 MAR 1850
Dr Brita Lisa Sigfridsdr 24 MAR 1853 (is APR in the communion books, but I checked the original births)
Dr Hedvig Gustava 27 MAY 1855
Son Johan Jakob 6 MAR 1859
Dr Matilda 6 JUL 1864
Son Henrik Sigfridsson 13 FEB 1862

The family also included a son Sigfrid Sigfridsson b. 14 MAR 1848 d. 2 JUL 1849. It's also likely that there was a child born between Hedvig Gustava and Johan Jacob, but you would have to go through the births/deaths (in case the child was stillborn) from 1856-1858 to check for that. Anna Lena was born in Tyrnävä, the rest of the children in Utajärvi.

In the endings -s is short for son (son) and -dr is short for dotter (daughter).

The record from Muhos:
p 222 Litt. B (Letter B)
Torp. (crofter) Zachris Bildo 1783
hr (wife) Caisa Matts 5 JAN 1793 in Muhos
Isaac Zachrisson 1816 (20 FEB 1815) in Utajärvi
Beata Lisa Ejusd (the same, meaning Zachrisdotter) 1818 (20 FEB) in Utajärvi
Thomas Ejusd (Zachrisson) 1823 (21 JAN) in Utajärvi
Caisa Maria 25 MAR 1826 in Utajärvi
Zachris Ejusd (Zachrisson) 11 SEP 1828 in Muhos

The family also included the children:
Matts b. 26 JUN 1821 in Utajärvi d. 27 FEB 1822
Johan b. 25 OCT 1836 in Utajärvi d. 19 MAY 1837

Isaak was born before Sakari ja Kaisa married (on 28 DEC 1817), not sure if Sakari is the father or not. As with the Utajärvi family, there might be children born between 1829-1835. I added the birth places for Sakari's family, those aren't listed in the communion book.

HTH,
Jani
