Centerville Finnish Pioneer Families in the 1870's and 1880's




I compiled this list of the Finnish Pioneers in Klickitat County, Washington, with help of following sources:
Centerville Finns. Published by Finnish- American Historical Society of West, July 1977.

Death Certificates of Finns in Klickitat County, Washington, 1908-1942. Excerpted by Merle A. Reinikka.

Centerville Cemetery transcriptions recorded by Sharon Allan of Pasco, Washington, August 2000.

Salomon Ilmonen: Amerikan Suomalaisten Historia II (History of Finnish Americans, part two,), pages 272 - 275. Published 1923 in Finland.

As you see, individuals can have different dates for their birth and death, depending on source. In those cases, I've given other alternatives as well, in parenthesis.
