The 1906 NY Passenger List shows that Einar Rytkönen was born in Kotka but HisKi shows him born in Kymi. The earliest birth records for Kotka and Kymi available at FFHA are 1877 and 1879.

Kymi Rippikirja, 1890-1899, shows the family came to Kymi from Kotka in 1892. Edvin Einar Rytkönen had a sister, Ida Irene, born 26.4.1877, died 9.3.1894, Kymi.

Kotka Lastenkirja, 1872-1887, shows Ida Irene and Edvard Einar, with parents at the farm Hovinsaari.

There are several Family Trees on Ancestry.com, which identify all three daughters born to Einar and Aina Kangas Rytkönen, and their spouses.

I would be happy to send you the records I found via email.
