Bio and Links
Bio Photo My earliest known ancestors are James and Catherine (Thomas) Adams. They were born in 1800-1810 in TN & NC respectively. They moved to Ray County Missouri in the fall of 1837 along with a wagon train caravan of the Grimes, McGlothin, Yoakum, Kincaid, and VanBebber families. I am seeking info on their early life (prior to 1840) as well as info on their children, and descendants.

RE: Wm Madison
Hi Elise. Not sure why I left flowers on that Cobb grave. Will go to Find a Grave and look at it. Right now I don't have a FTM in my computer with all my genealogy on it. I had to get a new comouter and have some thing I need to do before I can add the genealogy back in. Will look and see if anything rings a bell. I live close to Shidmore, in St. Joseph, MO. Now I am curious.

re: Rissanen family
And this August was the younger brother of Aliina's father Olli Rissanen (born 1863).

Though now we have to remember that August Rissanen is pretty common name among the Rissanen family so this particular August might be a more distant relative - but they all are related. The forefather of the Rissanen family is actually known, he lived in the 16th century. There is many books about the Rissanen family in Finnish so your friends might be lucky to trace their ancestry to the 1500's.

re: Rissanen family
Actually one of Aliina Rissanen's uncles was called August Rissanen and he was born 1879 (the birth date might be wrong in many American records as I have noticed is the case with many of my Finnish relatives). I know only that one of her granddaughters is a professor and doctor of medicine in Finland. Though she might be child of another son who did not come to US or returned to Finland at some point?

Interestingly two of Aliina's sisters immigrated to US in 1920's and actually there is still many descendants living in US though their surname is not Rissanen.

Rissanen
Your high school friends might be distant relatives of mine. Rissanen is a very Finnish surname so they are probably of Finnish descent. It's a small world!

Very nice of you to leave flowers for my dear Aunt Aliina Rissanen, who had a hard life full of tragedy. Thank you so much!
