Prest family, Finland, California

I am looking for more info on Isak Prest, b. 1860,Finland, migrated to CA abt 1888. His wife is found on US census as Marie, Eliza or Elizabet. They had a tie camp near Stewarts Point, Sonoma co CA. Son John or Johan b. 1886, married and had daughter Marion. Isak's wife was called "Auntie Prest" by the family, so I am not sure if she relates to August Soderlund or Marie Dahlquist, my grandparents. The Prests may also relate to the Engstroms and Ahlskogs. All Prests died in Sonoma co. and are buried on the ranch in a family cemetery, now inaccessible. any clues would be helpful. Thanks
