Surnames: HIRVELA, MC DONNELL, TOPPILA, SIMILA
Lester Vincent MC DONNELL and Elma Amelia HIRVELA were married in Detroit on 3 May 1923. Elma was born in Calumet, Houghton, MI, on 3 Sept 1899, the daughter of Daniel HIRVELA and Amelia SIMILA. I believe they had at least one daughter named Elma.

Was Daniel the brother of Henrik (Henry) HIRVELA who married Maria (Mary) TOPPILA in Calumet? And was Mary the sister of my greatgrandfather, Nils TOPPPILA, born in Rantsila, FI? I'm hoping MC DONNELL descendents might know the relationship.

Lester and Elma (she changed it early on to Alma) were my maternal grandparents. My cousin, Linda Walker Black, has researched the Hirvela family quite a lot. Her email address is: RBlackmail@aol.com
I'll be on vacation to the UP for the next week or so. Will check my email when I return.
What a nice surprise to see someone asking about my grand parents.
Thanks,
Diane
