Abel Jantti

On my previous message I wanted information of Abel Jantti from Finland. Now I have founded more facts about him.
My grandfather was Nestor (born 1899 and died in Finland) and his brother was Abel. They were sons of Ananias Jantti and Fredrika Vesterinen (she stayed in Finland). Ananias and Fredrika had also two dauhgters Maiju (Mary) and Ida and one more son Erkko.

Abel, Mary and Ida came to USA or Canada in around 1910. Ananias and Erkko came after I World War.
Mary went probably to Minnesota and married man from Poland whose surname was Helpa. Ida went probably to Oregon and became Meyer.
But Abel I'm not sure. I have found different tracks from USA (mostly Minnesota) and from Canada (mostly Ontario). Problem is that many different branches of Jantti family from same area of Finland has come to North America, so there is couple of different Abels too. I've been trying to find out the birthdate of that Abel I'm looking for.. And still trying.

Abel had at least one daughter Raakel (Rachel?). She went married (unfortunatelly I'm not aware with whom) and had twins in around 1956-60.
I hope these twins are still alive because I would like to find them. My mother and their mother are cousins.

These informations I have mostly found out from my mother and from Internet. I'm living in Finland and that is why my searching in North America has been little restricted and I really appreciate if anyone can help me!
