About Our Family Research

I am looking for information on Johan A. Rimpila (Rimpilainen)(born in Paltamo 1872, migrated to the NY USA April 1903, died 1944)(sailor, miner, laborer, self-educated, outdoorsmen, & entrepeneur), and Ida (Aido) Maria (Pilto or Pelto [Saami name]) Rimpila (born in Kajaani 1877, migrated to the USA 1902, died 1954). Both were born in Finland, met and were married in Duluth, MN in 1905, and then lived, and raised two children (Charles & Helmi), and died in Hibbing, Minnesota 1905 to 1954.

Ida Maria worked for the Leino family as a young women in Finland and met and became acquainted and a friend of Eino Leino as a young man.
