I am having nothing but problems trying to pin down my Koski family.
I have been told that the original name was PIRTTIKOSKI and the first part was dropped when they arrived in U.S. Can you confirm?
I have searched the HISKI project database and was unable to locate any of the subject names. They were supposed to be siblings.
Frans Oscar born ca 1886 Finland (do not know parish), died 1958 Issaquah, WA. Married Hilma Amanda LEHTINEN and had Martha Columbine KOSKI born Oct. 1928 WA. Hilma married previously to a John "Jack" Victor HILL (named changed when arrived from Finland.)
Abram KOSKI b. ca 1880 Finland married a Mary. Was found in Astoria, Clatsop, OR in 1910 - 1930 censuses. Children: 1.Lempi, dau., b. ca 1907 OR 2.Edward, son, b. ca 1908 OR 3.Lauri, son, b. ca 1911 OR 4.Henry, son, b. ca 1914 OR 5.Julia, dau., b. ca 1919 OR 6.Thelma, dau., b. ca 1925 OR
Sister, Martha, believe still in Finland.
Does anyone connect with any of the above Koskis or have any information?
