Louis Piispanen, wife Susan,step son John FI to Quincy MA
Posted by: Barbara Nelson (ID *****7175) Date: June 11, 2013 at 15:04:45

Recently I think I may have found part of the answer to my mystery that involves my great grandfather Lauri Piispanen and a man named Louis Piispanen, his wife Susan Larson and step son John.
They appear to be two seperate people as I suspected for awhile, but I need to find out who Louis's parents and sibblings were to be sure.
Louis and Lauri both came to Quincy MA in 1893.
Someone said they may be brothers, but I am not sure of this yet, perhaps cousins etc.

Would anyone be able to help me hear. I think they both may have arrived on the SS Caolifornia but again not positive.

Lauri's parents were Elias Piispanen and Ebba Kalhein(check spelling) Some inf I have says that Lauri had two sibblings that died young, one was a sister named Susanna, but I wonder if this inf is accurate too.

Lauri Piispanen came from Kivijarvi Finland . He had been married twice in FI first to Eva Kinnunen, and after she died m her cousin Karoline Kinnunen. They had several children including my grandmother Sylvia Marie and sister Imp Johanna along with Alina, Vilheim(William in US) Juho Rkkkard(John in US). Most of the family settled in Quincy and later some went to Ashby, Chester, Abbington, Hamden Co etc. Sylvia married Alfred Nelson also of FI in 1908 and had my dad Arvo Feb 18 1909 in Quincy.

Does any of this match up in any way with Louis's parents sibblings etc?

Sorry to be so long winded, but I'm getting excited now about possibly solving the mystery completely.

Thank you so much for any help here.
