About Matti Vihtori Huhtala

s.21.3.1887, Lapuan kirkko­herran­viraston mukaan Matti muutti nai­mat­tomana Ylihärmään 19.12.1894, mikä ei pitäne paikkansa. Vuosilukujen perusteella Matti olisi ollut Ylihärmään muuttaessaan seitsen­vuoti­as. Muutti Amerikkaan ensimmäisen vaimonsa Hannan kanssa. Avio­liitto oli lapse­ton ja vaimo löysi uuden miehen Amerikasta. Matti tuli takaisin ja alkoi seurustella Sanna Ahteen kanssa. Muutti­vat Amerikkaan 1923-24. Elossa vielä 1955. Lapset: Aili, Toivo ja Saara.

Matti owned a shoe company in Lapua and moved to Canada for a better life. Settled in Sault Ste. Marie with his wife and 3 children. He built a house on Hudson St, where Sally (Saara) his daughter lived there for all their remaining years with them. He worked at Algoma Steel, not sure about other work. His grandson would bring him his lunch at the Algoma gate when he was young. He had a big birthday party at the Finn Hall in the Soo for his 80? birthday which many attended. Many traveled far to his final service, it was in February. He was always impeccably dressed, neat and tidy.
