Surnames: Nyman; Tyni; Johnson; Erickson
I am currently working on a family tree and need alittle help. Here is what I know: my dad, John C. Nyman, was born at home in Bessemer, MI in 1933 and is still living. My mother is Carol Erickson of Gile, WI. My dad's father, also John C. Nyman, but known as "Cliff", was born March 18, 1907 in Wakefield, MI and died in 1983 was married to Vienna Tyni of Wakefield, MI, and died in 1998. His dad was also John C. Nyman and was probably born in Sweden but came to the US and settled in Bessemer, MI probably around 1900. His wife's name was Anna Johnson. I'd like to know the birth and death dates of John and Anna and any other info you might have. Also, I will gladly share any information I have gathered with anyone who recognizes these names.

Matt Nyman married Sanna Koski about 1915 and they were residents of Wakefield, Michigan. Perhaps Matt and John are related.
I find Matt and Sanna Nyman in the 1920 census but the children's names are hard to decifer from the online records. Two children according to my Mother were Waino (aka Wayne) and Elsie. I have also found a record for an Ellen Nyman, daughter of Sanna Nyman, married to Nick Kovacevich. This could be the daughter Mom thought was named Elsie.
There is a 1910 census for a Matt Newman and wife Susan in Wakefield which also may be them.
Matt Nyman was 46 in 1920 and his wife Sanna was 34.
The Koski family came from Myllykoski, Mettalan, Ylistaro, Vassa, Finland. I am not sure about the Nyman family.
Another interesting connection is the surname of Tyni as my Mother had Tyni cousins in Barron County, Wisconsin--Nels, John, and George who are with their mother Lizzie (Elizabeth Tyni) in 1920. The surname Tyni is not very common. What I was told by my aunts is that their grandmother's brother was Mr. Tyni. This I have not verified.
I am just now trying to piece this family together.

This is a comparatively old thread, but let's see if someone is still around...

This might be a bit freaky, but here goes. In the original message is the line "My dad's father, also John C. Nyman, but known as "Cliff", was born March 18, 1907 in Wakefield, MI and died in 1983 was married to Vienna Tyni of Wakefield, MI,..." I had an Uncle John and Aunt Tyni, and at one time time (early 70's I think) lived in Grand Rapids MI. Are these the same people I'm remembering??

Hi,

I am trying to locate an Irene Viola Nyman born circa 1913 WI. We know where she was in 1932 when she was Marrying her Husband Harry Richter. We also know where she was when her baby was born in 1933 (Chicago, IL.)I am looking for her before and after these two events.

I was under the impression she was the Daughter of Matt and Sanna Nyman until I read this post. I realize that you got the information from the book on Wakefield. However, do you have any further information on this Viola? I have a birth certificate that is for a "baby" Nyman born June 25, 1913 and that matches with Irene Viola Nyman's age. This birth certificate states the Father is Matt Nyman and the Mother is Sanna Koski. This baby was born in Longwood, Clark, MI.

This new evidence of a Viola Mildren Nyman throws a wrench into the whole works. I'm wondering if anyone knows who she Married so I can find her death or any other information on her. In the meantime I'm going to get a hold of this book to search for more.

Thank you in advance!

Todd

I will need to check my information which I do not have at hand. Sanna Nyeman was my mother's oldest cousin. I found additional information for ibndividuals with the Nyman/Nyeman surname in the Ironwood, Michigan newspaper posted onlline at ancestry.com. I will get back to you next week. In the meantime, you may want to check that resource.

Hi.

Thank you for responding. I looked into this thoroughly and although I now realize that this Viola Nyman is not the Irene Viola Nyman I am looking for, I will post my findings here because anyone who is related to this family may find this info interesting and informative.

On findagrave.com, I located the graves of both a Mildred V. Nyman and a Matt Nyman. Because of the birth dates and locations, I realize they are the Father and Daughter that are listed in this thread. Also, because she is listed on her grave as Mildred V. Nyman I now realize it is not the person I was looking for.

She is listed as born 1916 and died 1988. This information if you will notice varies just slightly from the book that was mentioned earlier on the Pioneers of Wakefield. Matt is found in the same Rosehill Cemetery in Algers County, MI. He was born 1876 and died 1925. This also varies slightly from the info in the book.

The 1916 birth date for Viola that was found on the grave matches the 1920 census report where she is found with Matt and Sanna. The birth certificate that I mentioned earlier that we had said "baby" Nyman was born June 25, 1913 to Matt and Sanna. I now realize this has to be a Sibling of Viola's.

Although this was not the person I was looking for, I do hope that others who are actually related to this family now have some clarification and more info to go by.

Thank you,

Todd

This may help. Obituary for Mrs. Matt Nyman (maiden name Sanna Liisa Koski). Ironwood Daily Globe Thursday November 2, 1978. Wakefield. Mrs. Matt Nyman, 93, Hill Street, Wakefield, died Wednesday evening at an Ironwood rest home where she was a patient since Oct. 17. The former Sanna Lissa Koski was born July 28, 1885 at Ylistaro, Vaasan Laani, Finland. In 1895, she came to the United States and to Wakefield. She was married by the late Rev. Bruno Wuornos at Ironwood to Matt Nyman Oct. 3, 1906. He died Nov. 13, 1919...Survivors include one son, Nels Nyman, Vicksburg, Miss.; four daughters, Mrs. Viola Mitchell, Chicago; Mrs. Herbert Meyer, Muskegon; Mrs. Nick Kovacevich, Freeland, and Miss Betty Ann, Wakefield; 10 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren and two sisters, Mrs. Tillie Rosendahl, Duluth, and Mrs. Mary Mardison, California. One son, Wayne, died Nov. 29, 1975.
If you find this is the family you are seeking, I have more information including the obit for Matt Nyman and ancestors from Finland.
When Matt Nyman died in 1939, his survivors were listed as wife (Susana Koskie); sons Wayne and Nels; daughters Miss Elsie, Miss Laila (registered nurse in Chicago), Ellen and Betty Ann (at home). Laila must refer to Viola. Either it was an error in listing or Viola may have used another name at one time.
My information also indicates that Viola's husband was George Mitchell. This came from news article dated 18 June 1962: Mrs. Sanna Nyman left this week for Chicago to visit her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. George Mitchell.
