Classification: Query
Surnames: Nyland, Nylund, Mattson, Backlund
My grandfather Isaac (Isak) Nyland born April 1870 in Finland married Sanna Kathrina Mattson abt. 1892 in Finland. Isaac came to U.S. in 1893 and settled in Minnesota, Katherine came later in 1895, went to MN, a son was born abt. 1897 to 1899 in Hibbing, MN. 1900 Montana Census shows the family and a brother of Katherine (Jacob Mattson) living in Neihart Montana. The information I need is what town that Isaac and Katherine came from in Finland, they spoke the Swedish language. Isaac changed his name to Nyland when he came to the U.S. I don't know what his last name was when he left Finland.
