Adolph Tuomas "Aate" Palkki
Birth: Dec. 24, 1880
Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland
Death: Sep. 16, 1962
St. Louis County
Minnesota, USA

According to Finnish Parish records, Tuomas Adolf "Aate" Thomasson Ylipalkki "Palkki" was born in Tyrnava, Oulu, Finland. He immigrated to the US in 1908, with his wife, Anna, and daughter, Olga, joining him less than a year later. The Ship Passenger Records list their surname as "Yli Balkki". Family tradition is that upon immigration, Aata's surname was 'YliBalkkiHeinola', which means 'Little Beam over River" (or so I've been told).

1959 was a significant year for the family of Aate & Anna (Niskanen) Palkki. Beloved mother, Anna, died on October 4th in Minnesota. Oldest son, Jake, passed away in California on December 4th, followed by Marie just 3 1/2 weeks later on December 28th in Minnesota.

FATHER: Thomas Thomasson Balkki (1845:Finland-1925:USA)
