John Niemin and Sanni Santala

Mesabi Iron Range Strike, Labor History, 44:3, 359-382
I found this

"Sanni Santala and her husband, John Niemin, who emigrated from Kokemäki, Finland in 1906, combined their earnings from working in a boardinghouse and blacksmith shop to purchase land and establish a farm in the forests that surrounded Owen, Wisconsin."

Does anyone know anything else about this couple? I have found a plausible family in 1920 and 1930 censuses, but am not sure they are the right people.
