Jack (Jaakko) and Aliina. I am looking for information on Jack and Aliina Sakarinp. SIIPOLA both emigtrated to Hoquiam/Aberdeen from Finland around 1902 with thier daughter Lyyli Aliina. Aliina died Oct. 6, 1938 at Hoquiam General Hospitaal and was buried in Aberdeen on October 8th. Jaakko Siipola died January 10, 1952 also I believe in Hoquiam. I would appreciate any information but especially information on the daughter Lyyli Aliina Jaakko Siipola (born Feb. 23, 1899) or if there were any other children born in the US. Also I would like information on a Mrs. Matt Jussila who is listed as "Informant" on Aliina's death records. She may be Lyyli??? I live in Kalama, WA and can easily visit the area but would like information on likely sources before I make the trip.

I'm looking for information about my grandparents, George and Jessie Rose SILJEG. I know for certain that George SILJEG lived in Aberdeen, Washington in GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY in 1920. His name appeared on the U.S. Census for GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY for that year. He was living as a boarder in the home of a family named KARAMATIC, perhaps a cousin. He married Jessie Rose(HATHAWAY) SILJEG in 1922, and died in Aberdeen in 1955. George was born in 1891 to Josif and Viola SILJEG of Nova Selo, Yugoslavia. Jessie was born in 1899 to George W. HATHAWAY and Eddith L.(HINMAN) HATHAWAY of Hebron, Nebraska. She died in Seattle in 1981. George emigrated to America somewhere between 1917 and 1919, landing at Ellis Island probably sailing from Hamburg, Germany or Bremen, Germany.

I am looking for any records concerning either Samuel or Richard Spray. They came to Grays Harbor County in the late 1800's and squatted timbered land only for my great-grandfather, Richard, to return to rural Indiana. His brother Sam stayed and I know he had two daughters, Montana and Dakota. And that is all I know. How do I go about finding more about these people?

I am looking for info on Doris Stevens born 1907 in MN. Parents were William A. and Ava Peterson Stevens and they divorced in Grays Harbor County in 1926. Doris worked at the Simpson Mill and had a sister named Mrs. Jack Henry. I don't know for sure what town in Grays Harbor they lived in but I'm guessing McCleary. Would also like to establist the date that Harry C. Haskell divorced Bessie in McCleary during that period.
