Saarijärvi Lastenkirja (Children's Book), 1880-1890, Lahdenaho Torp, Pyhajärvi 5, Wanhala, shows the following children born to Karl Johan Johansson and Amanda Lena Eriksdr, born 1842:

Karl Frithiof, born 11.11.1865
Johan Herman, born 9.12.1866
Onni Mathias, born 20.4.1869
Edla Maria, born 4.11.1871
Erik Gustaf, born 2.3.1874
Anna Wilhelmina, born 29.4.1876
Tilda Sofia, born 22.10.1880; died 5.12.1884
Hilma Helena, born 6.3.1884

Saarijärvi Rippikirja 1890-1900, Pyhäjärvi 5, Wanhala, shows the following family:

Kalle Juho Juhonpoika Lahdenaho, born 19.12.1836
wife Amanda Lena Eriksdr, born 14.12.1842
son Juho Herman, born 9.12.1866
son Kalle Frithiof, born 11.11.1865
daughter Anna Miina, born 29.4.1876
son Onni Matti, born 20.4.1869
daughter Edla Maria, born 4.11.1871
son Eero Kustaa (Erik Gustaf), born 2.3.1873 (he was born in 1874, so the year was recorded incorrectly in Rippikirja)

Hilma Helena, born 6.3.1884, is not shown in Rippikirja; apparently she had not yet been admitted to the church.

Onni Mathias (Matti) moved to another farm and got married.
But he came back to Wanhala with his wife, Selma Johanna, born 7.8.1877
He is shown with his wife at the bottom of the page, but with the name Lindqvist

Kalle Frithiof and Eero Kustaa are also shown again on this page with the name Lindqvist.

So I think this is the correct family for Hilma Lindqvist, who in 1907, married Kalle Sillman in Ashtabula, OH
