Here I go again, because I still haven't solved the mystery
My great grandfather was Lauri Piisan. He was born Aug 14 1852 in Kivijarvi Finland to Elias Piispanen, and Ebba Kahelin.He married twice in Finland(1)first wife died, and then he married Carolina Kinnunen, the first wife's cousin. With Caroline, had several children of which my grandmother Sylvia Marie Piispanen was one.All but the oldest daughter from first marriage came to MA, and settled in several areas including Quincy, Abington, Chester, and maybe other. Now to the problem. I'm told there is a Louis Piispanen who was about the same age, but he was married to a woman named Susan Larson who had a stepson John. They were married 11 years when they came to Quincy.That would be imposible if it were my g grandfather since his wife Carolina would have still been alive I believe and certainly when they were suppose to have married. One way is to find out who Louis Piispanen's parents were, name of ship he/they(they came together)came here on. Lauri came on the SS California as far as I know and was traveling alone. So can someone please help with finding Louis's parents names etc.I don't know precise dob, but it was about 1852 or so.
Sorry to ramble but there was no other way to explain this.
PS: Thank you for all those who've tried to help me with this over the years. I don't have membership in Ancestry.com and can't afford to pay for help.
