John or Jack Karpinnen/Karpinen
There is little we know on the Karpinen or Karppinen line due to the fact that my father-in-laws parents were divorced when he was about 5 years old.
This is what we know:
John Karppinen was from Finland and he married Rose?
They had 7 children: Eric, Edward, Enio, George, Jack, Simi and Velma.
Jack Karpinen married Mildred Kicherer, she went by the name of Micky. The had one child Royce Clayton b.1923 in Michigan. Jack and Micky lived there for awhile and then moved back to Wisconsin. In the Sheboygan area. I have written to some of the Karpinens but to no avail.
My husband is Richard Royce Karpinen b. 1953 his parents are Dorothea Hron and Royce Clayton Karpinen who had lived in Greenbay area until the mid 1980's when they joined us here in Az. We would like to find out more about Royce's family. You can email us as well at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, Kathie and Richard
