Years ago there was an article on the 3rd class Panula family having a maid named Sanni Rhiihivuori. Does anyone know more about this situation?

Susanna Juhantytar "Sanni" Riihivuori was a neighbour from the Panula's old home in Finland. I don't think she was considered a maid as such but was travelling with Maria Panula to help with the children. It could also have been that the Panula's were sponsoring her emigration to the USA as even in those days one couldn't simply turn up and expect to be admitted without having an address to go to.
