Jaakko & Matti born Vimpeli late 1800's

Looking for individuals that might have common family tree (or info). I've been looking in all the usual geneology pages (so you need not reply with links, unless really obscure). Here's what I know:

My Great-Grandfather, Matti Heikkila, born Vimpeli/Wimpeli Finland, 1886. Father Jaakko. Brother Jaakko born 1877.
Matti came to Negaunee MI 1906, sponsered by brother Jaakko (who came in 1894 or 1899)
Jaakko left in 1907 and came back to U.S. in 1916 with wife (Wilma/Vilma/Hilma/?iilma Ship manifest hard to read). They went to Fitchburg Mass. to meet Carolina ?anjai (127 Mechanic St)

I am in the process of collecting info on Matti's side (Son John B (my Grandpa), daughter Helen, daughter Thelma) and have sources for most.

If anyone has info on Jaakko or others please e-mail or reply.

Thanks,
Matt
