Sillanp??- Devon - Mac-Pap

I found out that my grand father had a brother (Frans Sillanp??) that emigrated in 1926 as a 22-year old to Canada, Devon. According to a book by Jyrki Juusela (Suomalaiset Espanjan sodassa) he went from Canada in 1937 as a volunter to participate in the Spanish civil war and joined a battalion called Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion (Mac-Paps).

Frans Johannes Sillanp?? was born 29.12.1904 in Vittisbofj?rd (Ahlainen), Finland , died 1.5.1938 in Teruel, Spain.

It would be interesting to know what he did in Canada, and if he had any family over there?
