searching for Sippola roots

Surnames: Sippola, Kelto, Paynter
My grandfather, Valentin Sippola, emigrated from Finland to Bessemer (Gogebic County), probably in the late 1890s; moved to Rio Grande Valley in 1919 or 1920 with a large number of other Finns from the area. Daughter Lillian remained in Bessemer; she married Emil Kelto, co-owner of Kelto-Velin food store. They had four children: Reuben, Rudolph, Richard, Vivian. Rudy still lives in Michigan (Munising). Vivian married Walter Paynter; they also lived in Bessemer; had children David and Luetta (now Flaa), each now with several descendents. I have had very little contact with the family in the past 25 years. Would like to find records and information about all, but especially the Sippolas. I expect also to try to make connections within the family.
