I was looking up my maiden name (my father is Glen Jokela) and saw that your Paternal Grandfather and Grandmother are Bernard and Mary Jokela. I did not know that there were any children between them, so I learned something new today!
Bernard passed away when I was a child, but I remember him very well. He was an excellent artist, painter and sketch, and drew many beautiful pictures of my mother. Mary was his second wife. My Grandmother Nona (also now deceased) was his first wife and they had two sons, Glen and Dennis. Both reside in Arizona.
I heard almost the same history of Finland, reindeer herds owned by the family, etc. from my Father and Grandparents and Great Aunts and Uncles in Minnesota and Michigan.
