||I am looking for any information about Louis & Elizabeth (Farquhar) Hanitch that lived in Superior, Wisconsin from around 1893 to 1919, then moving to Hopkins, Minnesota.
From my research, Louis Hanitch was a prominent attorney in Superior and was born in Dayton, Ohio October 9, 1863 and passed away June 7, 1937 in Hopkins, Minnesota. Elizabeth Hanitch was born in California September 8, 1868 and passed away July 1, 1958 in Minnesota.
My family is renovating the house that Louis Hanitch built in Superior around
1897, currently at 609 East 4th Street. I am attempting to locate any possible
living descendants that may have photos of the house or family during that
time. According to the obituary of Louis Hanitch, two daughters were still
living, Catherine Hanitch in Minnesota and Mary Johnson in Texas, as well
as two grandsons. Catherine passed away in Minnesota August 4, 1993. I am
unable to find any additional information. There is a "Betty Hanitch" scholarship
at Superior Senior High School in memory of one of Louis Hanitch's deceased
daughters. I am also looking for obituaries from anyone in the Hanitch family.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!

||Hello, I'm having a problems doing my family research.

Second Person is Jacob Haugen born in Norway around
1863. Lived in Surperior WI. His brother, I believe, was Hans Haugen living at
the address of 2415 Hammond Ave. Surperior WI in Aug. 1937. I believe Jacob died
in Superior but I have no records on him. It's like he just vanished. He married
Amelia Everson pre 1888 which was the year of their first child being born.
All the children were born in Douglas County and they are:
3rd person is Amelia (Emelia) Everson. Married to
Jacob Haugen. She was born 28 Nov 1865 in Norway and came to the USA 3 months
old. Died 19 Jan 1912. Buried in Minong WI age 46. Poss mothers name is Matilda.

||Kangas, Keiski, Wahamaki
||I am trying to obtain more information on the following Finnish immigrants who first immigrated to Ironwood, MI, in the early 1900's, but later, moved to the Superior area and remained there until about WWII.
Hilma Keiski born 9.9.1880 in Lohtaja Finland, came to US in 1903. Her passenger record denotes her final US destination is Ironwood, MI, to see Kalle Keiski. Although her record denotes he is her brother, we are not sure if this is accurate, as there is no indication (from what little info we have!) that she had a brother named Kalle. Perhaps Kalle was her cousin.
Hilma's parents were Jaakko Keiski (9/13/1837 - 4/20/1889) and Brita Kangas(12/20/1836) from the town of Kälviä.
Siblings: note dates listed for these people is Day, Month, Year:
After Hilma arrived in the US, at some point she married a man (name unknown) and had one or two children. However, we believe all died. In about 1910, she married Matti Wahamaki (parents unknown), and had several children, all of which we have info on.
- Juho (24.6.1860), no children
- Edla Sofia (9.7.1862), no husband, no children
- Loviisa (18.9.1866) ?
- Matti Leander (27.3.1870) ?
- Matilda (28.10.1877), married with Wiljami Lento 1902, ?
- Hilma (22.9.1880) (our person of interest)
In addition, we believe a Matti Wahamaki (possibly our Matti, but perhaps not)
was married prior to his marriage to Hilma. He or another Matti Wahamaki may
have been married to Amalia or Amelia Mattila, 11 Sep 1903 Ironwood, but we are
not sure, as these are just a a few of the leads we need assistance with. I only
find one Matti Wahamaki in Michigan census records, and that is in 1910 with
Hilma. I believe at some point Matti (or Matt) worked for Dupont, but I don't
know if that was in MI or WI.
We are hoping perhaps there are various records on Matti and Hilma Wahamaki in Douglas County. Although they were not born or died in this county, they may have owned land, had children born there, etc.
Thank you for any assistance anyone can offer!
