NAME: Melinda Dropp
I am researching my family tree and there are a lot of people and names that I need to make connections to. My Grandmother Hellen and her sister Belle came from a large family that originated from the Harsen's Island - Flats area. Their parents were Charles SEARS (came from Germany--also a large family--lots of brothers) Victoria LOZEN,LOZON (French or French-Canadian--also from a large family). Together they had 7 or 8 children. Hellen (3/27/1889), Belle (3/27/1887), Steve, George, Josephine, Charles, Annie, not sure if there is another brother Albert. Or if Albert is an Uncle Albert Lozen? I am assuming that all of the children were born in Romeo, MI, because that is where my Aunt Belle and Grama Hellen were born.

Hellen Sears married William WOBROCK, they divorced and she married Herman Fredrick KOHN. She and Herman lived in the Detroit area after their marriage. Hellen lived in Lincoln Park, Mi, when she passed away.

Belle Married William BARR or LOZEN, (not sure yet), Divorced and Married William (Billy) BEDORE,--William Bedore owned a business with Scott J. Yacques--called Bedore & Yacques Sheet Piling, Algonac, MI, St. Clair Flats. Belle Bedore died in her home on Harsen's Island. May 1971.

Josephine (Josie), married William (Bill) BRITE--not sure of any other info on either of them. (I have photo's of them.) George SEARS married Annie?--they had a son named George, Jr. (I have photo's of them.) At present I do not have any information on the other Sears children.

Our family also has links to the CLAY families from Harsen's Island. These would be through cousins or marriages. I have photo's of people and no names. Any help with any of these people would be greatly appreciated. All of my family members are gone. All I have are pictures and memories of my Grandmother Hellen telling me about her family and all of the visits to my Aunt Belles on Harsen's Island, where I swam in the cut next to her house and fished in the Channel.

NAME: LaVonne G. Remai
I am researching my grandfathers family that lived in Mt. Clemens, Mi. His name was John Joseph COTTRELL. He was b. ca 1867/8 and was the son of Copley & Emily Cottrell. He had a sister Alice M. Cottrell TUCKER. I believe Copley died in 1908 in Mt Clemens as I have a statement & receipt for Inheritance Specific Tax dated 3/7/1909. It states Sons share & is received from Alice M. Tucker 6/27/1913.

I would like to know if there is a will & probate records available or any other information such as when the Cottrell family arrived in Mt. Clemens and his profession, family members. Actually I would be thrilled with any information available about he & his family. My Grandmother Sallie E. Gould/widow of Fred W. Gould of Saginaw Co. married John J. Cottrell 11/24/1903. I haven't located a marriage record as yet. I also have not researched land records. I believe Copley owned a great deal of property in Detroit.

I don't know what info or records would be available but if you could do a lookup & let me know what the cost is I would be most appreciative. I live in Calif. and Mt Clemens is a long way off!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much! LaVonne G. Remai

Emery Fox is listed in the Social Security Death index as being a residence of 48091 Warren, Macomb, MI. As an Australian I don't really know what this means but I believe Emery to be my grandfather.
