NAME: Patricia Secord
I'm researching two ancestors that died in Macomb County, Michigan. They are a husband and wife; Newton Wilson and Eunice Bratin WILSON. Newton died on January 26,1863; Eunice died on January 27, 1863. As they passed away within a day of each other, I was wondering if there was any type of contagious illness in the county early in 1863. Thank you for any info on this.

NAME: Dennis Norton
Aaron BLAKE and Annie HOLBROOK were married in North Carolina in 1865. Aaron was from Saginaw County, but at some point they ended up in Memphis, Macomb County, Michigan, where Annie died June 14, 1886. Where is Annie buried? Aaron was in the 23rd Michigan Infantry during the Civil War and became a member of the Macomb Chapter of the G.A.R. about 1895. Annie was married to a Holbrook before her marriage to Aaron BLAKE. Some records indicate a possible name for Annie of HAZELTINE ANNA JOHNSON, of Raleigh, Lincoln Co., NC. What happened to the first husband whose name was probably John F. HOLBROOK Sr.? Some of the HOLBROOK family may have followed her to Memphis, and then may have gone on to Saginaw when Aaron moved to Saginaw not long before his death. Did Annie have family in the Memphis area before her marriage to Aaron BLAKE? Did Annie’s husband – HOLBROOK – have family in the Memphis area? John F. HOLBROOK was the son of Annie from her first marriage. His wife and family may have been from the Memphis area. Any help with this family, or relatives and in-laws of Aaron BLAKE, Annie HOLBROOK (or Hazeltine Anna JOHNSON) or John F. HOLBROOK would be greatly appreciated.

NAME: Richard Nettlow
I own a home in Northern Macomb that was built in 1838 by Zephaniah Campbell. Campbell and his wife Betsey sold the house to a Duncan McGregor and his wife Julia in 1846. The McGregors stayed until 1850 when the house was once again sold.......this time to David Draper and his wife Abigail. Draper sold the house to Anson J. Labadie and his wife Rebecca in 1870. Four of the Labadie children died in the sping of 1874 and are buried in the Union Cemetery on Fairchild Rd. ( cause unknown but perhaps scarlet fever or ?????...........if anyone should know please inform me) Anson and Rebecca sold the house in November of 1874 to Henry Kloefler. The same year Kloefler sold the house to Dewitt Pretty and his wife Catharine. Pretty stayed until 1880 when it was sold to Charles and Minnie Hagen. In 1882 Hagen sold the house to Jacob and Elizabeth Gardner who stayed until 1892 when it was sold to Charlotte Trufant. Evidently Trufant died and when her estate was settled the house was sold to my ancestor Arthur Kitley. I am very interested in finding out anything about the early inhabitants of my house......especially Zephania Campbell, Duncan McGregor, David Draper and the Labadie family. Photo of home:

I'm interested in the Erin Grove Cemetery, Roseville, MI because I do have a couple distant relations buried there and my great grandfather WAS buried there before he was removed to Cadillac Memorial Gardens in 1966. Anyway, I was wondering if you might know if early burial records for Erin Grove are still in existence and, if so, who I might contact to have a look at them. My interest in the cemetery has been renewed recently after receiving a message from a woman who informed me that a Sophia Henning buried in Erin Grove was originally interred at a now defunct church cemetery named St Peter's Ev. Lutheran which was located in Detroit on Gratiot just south of 8-Mile (not to be confused with the St Peter's Lutheran north of 9-Mile in Eastpointe). Apparently Sophia was removed from St Peter's Detroit and moved to Erin Grove to be buried with her husband Heinrich. I also had many ancestors buried in the "south of 8 Mile" St Peter's which, as I mentioned, no longer exists. I was wondering if perhaps some may have been transferred to Erin Grove like Sophia Henning was. This might explain why my great grandfather, who died quite young, was originally buried in Erin Grove. Anyway, if you could provide me with any information I would greatly appreciate it. I have already looked at what records are on line with no results. Thanks

Please post this on your surname list as I am eager to make connections with anyone familiar with the family. Thank you so much!

I am looking to find information on two sections of my family. They lived and worked in Macomb County, MI. My 2nd G. Grandfather, Charles BERGER, had a store of some sort in Waldenburg...Bergers Corners? and I know they died in the county at some point. Caroline or Carrie MILLER was Caroline Streit and married Herman Miller. They , too, had a Mt. Clemens, I believe and I am told he was a shoemaker? If you can help me locate some information or addresses or even some pictures, I would be grateful. Thank you so much.

I had two great Uncles and Aunts who moved to the Detroit area between 1910 & 1920, they were Charles Ashton Armstong & wife, Maude Mae Heflin and also, James Marion Armstrong & wife, Grace Sullivan (All of whom were born in Stafford Co./Fredericksburg, VA.).

Charles Ashton Armstrong was born 27 Feb.1885 & d.24 Dec.1968 in Livonia, Wayne, MI.? His wife, Maude Heflin b.19 July 1885, died in Detroit, Wayne Co., 22 December 1930. Ashton remarried a 2nd time, Eunice S. Galligher b. 9 Feb. 1889 in Evart, Osceola, MI. Eunice died on 4 Feb, 1965 in Livonia, Wayne, MI.? Charles Ashton Armstrong and Maude had two sons, Theodore B.

Howard & Betty had 3 sons: Charles "Chuck" Howard Armstrong (1932-2008), Theodore Robert "Bob" Armstrong (1934- ), and lastly, Kenneth W. Armstrong(1936- ). I think all these boys spent a good amuont of time in the Holland, MI area.

Many thanks,

NAME: Nina Jackman
I am looking for what happened to Hiram Reynolds Jackman, who had lived in Canada, came to Michigan and was caretaker at a country school in Macomb County. He married his first wife, Martha Oliver in 1843 while still in Canada. She died in Macomb County and is probably buried in the Memphis Michigan graveyard, where their young son is buried - and has a marker. There is no marker for his wife.

his second wife, Maria Taylor Apley was from Canada, too, but moved to Memphis. She was buried in a different cemetery where her first husband was buried. They did not have children. The Memphis Cemetery people did not keep good records. He had several children with his first wife, Martha, and they scattered in different areas of Michigan.

I cannot find a death record for Hiram nor can I find absolute proof that he was the child of Richard and Mary Jackman in Ontario.

those two answers would finish my genealogy on which I have worked for many, many years. I am now 90 years old and would like to complete my records. Please help if you can.

NAME: Ted Ward
I have been working on my family tree for about three years. I have close to 3000 family members in it. I am asking for your guidance and whatever help you can give me to find more information on my great paternal grandparents. I keep running into roadblocks on tracing my great grandmother before her marriage as to her parents, etc. Matilda L. Walker WARD is her name. I have found their graves in the Hadley Cemetery on Coon Creek Road in Armada Township. My grandfather was Andrew J. Ward, born 1801 in Vermont and died in 1891 in Armada.

They were married in Ontario County NY, I think. Most of their children were born there before they moved to Macomb County, which occured around 1840 or sooner. I've read in some published books that their house was one of the stops for Armada settlers in their trip from Romeo to settle in Armada. Their house was at Coon Creek Road and what became Armada Ridge Road.

I have been to Armada and Richmond Township offices and the Armada Times and Romeo Observer to research. I recently found that the Mt. Clemens library may have some materials that may help me. Thank you for any help that you can offer.

I hope you may be able to help me with a family mystery/legend of my GG grandfather, William GAMM. How can I find legal records or newspaper articles from around 1879-1880 for the Armada area?

Here's the story:
William , his wife Dorothea Schaeding and two children purportedly arrived in Armada in October or November of 1879. He already had relatives in the area (John Gamm). He left the area within a year under duress. (He is placed in Saginaw by January 1881 because his daughter died in January 1881 and is buried in a Saginaw cemetery). Legend has it among the relatives in Armada that he was a horse thief and ran away to the Saginaw area. William and Dora claimed that they had never lived anywhere but Saginaw. I found a plat map from around this time frame that shows a plot owned by a Wm Gamm, so there may be credence to the family legend. I haven't been able to find any records indicating illegal activities.

Thanks for any direction you can give me.

I am researching GOULETTE family members from Mt. Clemens. I found Paul J. Goulette in the obit index of the Mt. Clemens Library online. He died 16 Aug. 1912 at age 14, son of Abrose. (His mother not listed is Archangel (Arkie) I am hoping to find his birth date as I am having a grave stone made for him and would like this pertinent info to complete it correctly. I also know he is buried in St. Peter's Cemetery in the Goulette family plot, but no headstone.

My name is Alice Calloway, and the Goulettes are part of my maternal heritage. Paul would have been my great uncle. Any other information you need, please contact me.

DATE: 4 March 2016 NAME: Nancy Martell Schmidt
I was raised in Romeo, Michigan. My family goes back to before Romeo was an actual place on the map. My father was Cecil Herbert MARTELL, who inherited "Hillcrest Orchards" after his mother, Grace Mae Eldred Martell died and before he sold it about 1949.

He started subdividing lots along 32 Mile and Campground Roads and now I can't remember what the subdivision is being called. Family names were Schmidt, Sieger, Eldred, Butterfield, Eaton, Sholes. My great great grandfather, Rev. Anthony Martell from Nova Scotia was the Baptist Minister in Romeo for awhile. His wife died when he was a minister in Lapeer, I think. She is also buried there.

My great grandfather, Herbert Cunningham Martell and his wife, Eva Butterfield Martell are buried in the Romeo Cemetery also. I have pictures of the tomb stone, I understand it was damaged, so I don't know what remains.

DATE: 09 May 2017 NAME: Kimberley Prell Clark
I am interested in the following surnames:
Surname: Prell, Loeschke/Loschke/Loske/Loschke/Lochke/Loschke, Ring
Given Names: Frederick, Mary, August(us), Fredericka
Prussia to New York (1860 Census, Niagara Co) to Macomb Co, Michigan by 1870 census.

The Brandenburg Emigration list from Bagemuehl/Prenzlau, shows Maria Dorothea Loesicke (Loschke on her daughters death record) verh Prell, Augustus Wilhelm Prell and Fredericke Wilhelmine with Heinrich Wilhelm Prell. Dates of birth for Augustus and Fredericka on the emigration show these are our August and Fredericka. Family story was that August came over with a cousin but I have actively been researching this line for more than 25 years and have done the research to prove that the passenger list that our family had for him is not our August. After taking a DNA test and finding others who did the same, our family ties into the South Dakota Loeschke lines from Pommern near Brandenburg. I have transcriptions of the Emigration records but they can be found online at or in the Family History Library on microfilm. Mary Dora (Maria Dorothea) was daughter of Michael Loschke (possible Lochke) and Dora Ring.

I am interested in the following surnames:

Surname: Williams/William

Given Names: Isaac, John or Johan and Wilhelmina Dittman Williams Prussia to Macomb Co, Michigan Isaac was on the 1870 Macomb census, as was his father, John Williams. Isaac married Fredericka Wilhelmine Prell, my grand aunt. The above Macomb surnames that I am hoping to find more information on regarding locations in Saxony, Wurttemburg and Prussia they came from. Past and Present of Macomb County states that Isaac Williams and his wife Fredericka Prell were born in the same town in Prussia after much research the town or village of Bagemuhl in Ueckermark/Prenzlau (Brandenburg) has been found for the the birthplace of Isaac Williams. DNA matches to my brother and I and other extended family members show locations of birth for the ancestors in the Brandenburg area from their trees.
