Eilola - Houghton/Hancock Michigan/Minnesota - Finland

Posted: 1172874663000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Eilola
My family of Eilola's came to the US (Houghton County - Coppermines) around 1885.

My great grandfather August Eilola was born June 9, 1872 I belive in Oulu Finland - one of his work applications says Oluland Finland - possible typo.

His father is named as Jafet. Eilola - believe that my August may have been the brother of Matti and Frank.

August was married to Hilma and they had one surviving child - Brunolf.

In 1920 August and Hilma took in a border - Hilma Eilola - who was their niece = presume that the niece was the daughter of John and Mary Eilola also of Hancock.

John and Mary had a number of children:
Johannah - dau. b.c. 1894
August - son - b.c. 1900
Hilma - dau. - b.c. 1902
Esther - dau. b.c. 1905
Walter - son - b.c. 1906
Mattie W dau? - b.c. 1908
Else? M - dau - b.c. 1911
Jacob - Son - b.c. 1914
Edith - dau. b.c. 1912
Herman - son - b.c. 1915

Any information that anyone has on this family - I would appreciate.

There is also a Matt Eilola who had a son Andrew who was killed in a hunting accident in Hancock in 1919. Andrew would have been 20 at the time of death.

Trying to tie into related Eilola's.

Thanks,
karen
