Baal, Sophia Johanna

Nyarleby, Ostrobothnia


b. January 1884


Emigrated to Canada sometime around 1900. She married Arthur Rouse - my great uncle (from Wales UK), sometime before 1911.

They lived in Quartz Creek and Dawson City Yukon where Arthur was a gold miner during the Yukon Gold Rush. They moved to Vancouver around 1925.

They both died in Vancouver - Sophia on 2nd Jan 1966 and Arthur on 8 Dec 1959.

According to Sohia's death certificate her mother was called Johanna Baal and father Jacob Jacobsson. From a travel manifest of the Whitehorse - Yukon railway i found that Sophia was born in Jan 1884 in Nyarleby,Ostrobothnia, Finland.

I am searching for any information about Sophia and her family in Finland.
