Herman Antinpoika Kankaanpää Kangas
Birth: May 6, 1879
Vaasa
Ostrobothnia, Finland
Death: Nov. 30, 1967
Duluth
St. Louis County
Minnesota, USA

According to Finnish Parish records, Herman was born in Lapua, Vaasa, Finland, and his given name was  "Hermanni Antinpoika Kankaanpää", which became Herman Kangas shortly after he immigrated to the US in 1901. In about 1915, Hemppa (as he was known in the family), lost not only his eyesight during an 'accidental' explosion at the Oliver Iron Ore Mines where he worked, but his actual eyes, themselves, leaving only empty eye sockets.
