Am looking for info on Jacob Ojala b 1854 d 1925 Otter Tail County, MN; spouse Anna Katarina Oman b 1865 d 1944 Otter Tail County, MN. Jacob's mother: Kaisa Ollila (sp); Kaisa had an adopted son, Olaf W. b 1892;. Jacob and Anna's children: William V b 1891; Anna S. b 1888; foster son John Arnold (Turp) Anderson b 1902. "Arnold" was Post Master of New York Mills, MN for many years as well as a State Rep in the late 1940s early 1950s (he was my step-uncle). Any info would be appreciated.
Note: In the 1900 census, the family name is hand-written as "Ogla" instead of Ojala and Kaisa's name is written as "Geiser Agila". Gotta love it, lol. Also, there's no doubt "Ollila" is a mis-spelling of "Ojala", since Kaisa in later years shows up correctly as "Ojala".
