Peura, Kantola, Maki, and Teppala
On Febuary of this year my grandfather has just pasted away leaving may question unanswered about his mother's (Hilia Kantola) side (Peura) and is father's (George)side (Kantola). Both side came from finland and settled in Upper Michigan in Marquette County. I know that his that his grandfather (Herman) Kantola was in the Russian army. I guess Herman came to America when he ran from the army.But on his mothers side we know his grandfather (Jacob) Peura took his wife's last name. They had five children Nestor, Jaffet, Herman, Reino, and Hilia. We also know that Hilia was related to a Reino Maki thought his mother. Also there is one more person that is a Mystery. Frank Teppala was buired in a family lot of the Peura for reasons unknown to us. Any information on these people will be a blessing to my family and will help in are search for are family roots.
