Tengsöda 3, Saltvik, Åland, search for Holmström family/relatives

Looking for the roots of
Anna Ingeborg Holmström who was from Tengsöda (Tängsöda?) Saltvik, Åland, and emigrated to New York in 1907.
She was born in 1885. The baptism records say her father was Otto Holmström and mother Anna Fransilia Mattsdotter. They were living at Tengsöda 3, Otto was a torpare (tenant farmer?)

The Ellis Island records have a column for the nearest relative or friend back in Finland, and their address, there it says her father was Haakon Holmström. (her name on the records search at is spelled Anna Holmstrim. 1907 arrived in New York.
Could there have been two Anna Holmströms leaving Åland, and I have confused them? Or Otto died, and Haakon is her stepfather?

I can read Swedish, but have never searched Finland records.

I am helping a friend who would like to travel to Åland this summer to see where her grandmother is from.
