My Lauri Piispanen came to US on the SS California alone. He was married, but his wife Karoline Kinnunen Piispanen stayed in Finland. I believe the one mentioned here is a different one with the name perhaps of Louis not Lauri. Lauri's parents were elias Piispanen and Ebba Kahelin
This is 7 years later, but thought I'd post it for anyone that may be able to help here.I need to find out whats going on, I know my Lauri came here around 1893, and by 1900 his children were all here, having settled in Quincy MA.
