Surnames: MODIG, NIEMI, DAYTON, LEWIS, PUDAS, TOPPILA, GORDON

In 1882, Isak Wilhelm Johansson MODIG, born May 01, 1853 in Koivukyla,Hietaniemi, Sweden and his wife, Ulrika (Ulla) Eriksdotter PUDAS, born February 04, 1855 in Kangos, Pajala, Sweden, immigrated to Houghton Co with their daughter, Johanna Erika Modig. Isak worked in the copper mines with his brother-in-law, Nils TOPPILA. There were more children: Hannah, who married an unknown NIEMI; John; Amanda, who never married but was living in Detroit in the 1930's; Mary, who moved to either Seattle or Takoma, WA; Ernest,who married Sandrina (maiden name unknown); Teckla, who married Hobart DAYTON; Florence, who married Charles LEWIS; and Edna, married with daughters Lenore and Bernice (married Earl GORDON).

I am seeking any descendents of this family to share with them our PUDAS ancestry back into the 1500's.
