I am trying to find out anything I can about Amanda Alexandra Nylund. She married Karl Gustav Nylund and came to the U.S. in 1901. They lived in Brooklyn in 1910. I know that he returned to Finland after WWI alone; I am trying to find out who she was and what happened to her and their one surviving child.

Ship from Finland: Polaris
Date of departure from Finland: 18.05.1901

And in the record for the passenger on Ellis Island you will find the family in June 03, 1901.
The came with the ship Anchoria from Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Three persons:
Gustaf Nylund, 24 year and his wife Alexandra Nylund, 25 year and their children Gösta F (Gosla F. in the record for the passenger.), 10 months old. He most born in the autumn 1900, (But the Detailed passenger information from Finland say that he was only three months old I may 1901.) and his father around the year 1877 and the mother around the year 1876.

The family came from the town Turku/Åbo in Finland, because Institute of Migration in Finland's Detailed passport information give this information about Amanda Alexandra Nylund:

Last name: Nylund
First names: Amanda Alexandra
Marital status: 2
Occupation: Valurin vmo (Founders wife) Her husband’s work - founder.
Home parish: Turku/Åbo

Passport valid (year:month): 5:0
Destination: Ulkomaat/Utlandet (Abroad).
Passport issued by: TUR (Turku/Åbo)

Her husband already has a passport, the first one already from the spring 1893, because the Institute of Migration in Finland's Detailed passport information give this information about him:

Thank you for all that information; I already had gone through the Emigrant Tracking database, so I did have all the passport and Ellis Island information. I even know exactly where they lived in Brooklyn in 1910. It's what happened afterwards that I don't know. I thought it might help if I could find out her maiden name, or find out what happened to the son (who I think changed his name to Gus or Gustaf and may have stayed in the U.S.) But thank you so much anyhow.

Terve Annette!

I see in ancestry.com that you have given some more information about Karl G. E. Nylund. I want to quote that, because it will be so much easier to help if we have so much information as possible. Your words:

“(Karl G. E. Nylund) He came to the US from Finland in 1893 at the age of 16, returned there at some point, then came back to the US and may have lived in Brooklyn and worked as a patternmaker. He had one or two sons, but returned permanently to Finland in 1917 without his family.”

Regards
Harri

Ps. I wondering if Karl G. E. Nylund travelled to Finland because he wants to help any side in the conflict in Finland the turbulent years 1917-1918, maybe he died during this time. He will not be finding in the Project database “War Victims of Finland 1914-1922” (http://vesta.narc.fi/cgi-bin/db2www/sotasurmaetusivu/main ). I believe he was Swedish speaking Finn, and maybe his name or his family members name and life history have been written some where? We will see... Ds.
