Classification: Query
Surnames: Haanpaa, Jussila and Saukkola, Backman
Katarina Sofia Saukkola of Oulu, born about 1875?
She was married to Jaakko Backman, born about 1865, Oulu, and he died abt 1889, leaving her alone with two childen.
Katarina, son Jaako (born abt 1888, Finlan), and daughter Ida (born September 6, 1887 all emmigrated to US about 1890.
I know nothing about Katarina's parents or siblings, nor Jaako Backman! Help would be wonderful!

The other family I would like to know more about is Haanpaa. (sometimes Heilala in earlier days???) Iisakki Haanpaa, born 1-1-1880 in Tuomykilla to Johan Mattson Haanpaa and Kaisa Matsdotter. Iisakki and Kustaava Kotamahki were his godparents, and the priest was c.r. forsman. He emmigrated to US April 2, 1903.
He left behind his blind father (so we were told?) and a brother (unknown given name), born about 1878 and died Vaasa Tuomi Kasarminkatu about 1972.
My great uncle that stayed in Finland had one child that I know of named Elma Matilda, born about 1901, vaasa Tuomi K...... and she married Yrjo Jussila, b about 1900, d. 1975 vaasa, tuomi K. They also had one child that I've heard of, Simo Jussila, b. about 1930 vaasa Tuomi K...., but I don't know anything else or how to make contact if he is alive or any of his family still? Or did Elma or son Simo have any siblings?
thank you for any help!
