My friend is Orville Grandon Spencer b. 15Jan1922 to Fannie Adell Howey and William Spencer. He says he is the last surviving of 5 children. He wonders if you are related through Lyla. Are you are a Wendt? His recollection is that Harry Shoe died of typhoid. He thinks Fannie Gadsby has sibblings: Amos, Robert, F. Adell, Marion, Margaret, Alice, and Lyla.
Orville's primary interest is the circumstances surrounding Fannie Ardell Howie's birth...beit on a ferry between the US and canadaa, or what. Any anecdotes on the topic?
I am a new member of Genealogy Wise. I am interested in the Truchel name. My grandfather was Wladyslaw Majkowski b 01 Feb 1887 to Franciszek Majkowski and Maryanna Truchel in Poland/Russia, possibly in a place called Janki. Wladyslaw d 25 Nov 1950 in Southington CT. I am interested in any information that would lead me to information about the Truchel line. I was told by relatives that she was part French and that her father was in Napoleon's army. I have nothing to prove/disprove that. I'd appreciate hearing if you have any connection to this family.
actually, I got a hold of someone at the saginaw library and he sent me several obits. Herman Julius Wendt g g grand fr. who married Augusta Hoppe they had Robert wendt sr, albert, (another Herman?) Emil and Dr. Otto Wendt, mom was born there too and remembered a house in Mi too.
herman j was possibly from W. Prussia Gemrmany too.. jan 4 1845 is one I might have found.
There are many Wendt families in Michigan. It surprised me when I started doing research. While I don't have the couple you mentioned in my tree, I can tell you my Wendts came from West Prussia near Tczew.
Have you looked at two free databases which have Michigan records:
