Hello! I do searches as a hobby, and, recently I have been unable to find information about the daughter of Henrik Taipale and Elisabeth Sui. Her name was Maria, she was supposed to have been born 4.4.1846. I was told she was born in Ventala. Well, I have found Vendälä and Wendälä, located in Isokyrö from 1722 to 1850, and, Jalasjärvi from 1759 to 1854 in HisKi....Then Ventelä and Wentelä in Viipuri and Muolaa. Even though there are many listings in these places, I can't find any Maria born to Henrik or Elisabeth. I received a copy of her obituary from her relative, it was very hard to read, but, to me her year of birth looked like 1848....So, of course I tried to find her for that year, but, I came up empty. She died Nov.4, 1923 in Ashtabula, OH. Her husband was Antti Rintala, he was born 28.5.1848 in Isokyrö. I have found information about him and their children, but, Maria's birth listing, and, her parents births and marriage dates are what is missing. I would really appreciate any help or suggestions, so that I can finally tell their ancestor more about them.
