@William ... sorry for the delay in answering. Unfortunately, there is no direct contact ... only thru Ancestry. 

Comment by Rob Smith on March 8, 2012 at 8:00am

@William ... on there is a family tree with George & Ellen Lapeer

William born 1837 in Uxbridge - died Mar 1914 in Cass City. His father is Joseph ... no mother name noted. Ellen Lot is his wife - she was born Aug 1840 - died Dec 1915 in Cass City. They had 11 children. Let me know if  you need more information from this record.

I am very excited to see  the "Circumstances of Death" War documents from WW2 are almost all available online @ - they have them in alphabetical order up until "Sims, William - Private" 

I'll have to keep waiting for "Sinnett" but I'm so very excited to look through some of these documents!

Hi:  I am looking for any information regarding a Marion Burrows Wheeler.  She supposedly lived on a farm near Teulon, Manitoba, Canada in the latter years of 1900.  Her farm supposedly burned down and afterwards, she suffered a nervous breakdown and was institutionalized and died in Canada.  Her maiden name was Marion Burrows and married a Julian G. Wheeler.  I've been looking for any record for this woman and have come up empty handed.  Thanks so much for any tips or information you can give me.  If you are close to where the vital records are kept and can find something, I would be so appreciative. 


Thank You, Carolyn Benjamin

The Pierre Tremblay you speak of... I'm sure I have the year of birth wrong.  I'm trying to follow information that someone wrote down vs.  my information that was lost on my computer as a word file.  I have to start some parts over.  The informations you have is most likely correct.   I have Andre Sauveau Tremblay married to Romaine Mercier 1796. Then a son - Pierre Tremblay m to Helene Minier dit Lagace same... m 1824 .. Then their son Pierre maried Emilie Fortin same... daughter of Antoine Fortin m. Jan 31 1853...   Pierre & Emelie had 13 children... I have a Picture of Pierre and Emilie Tremblay.  

There children are Elmire, Demerise, Supliin, John, Marie, Odeal, Kate, Joseph, Romeo E., JULIA, Armilda"Millie", Rosalie and Aggie.  By 1890 Pierre (Peter) & Emelie arrived in Sault Sainte Marie, Chippewa County, Bruce Township, MI  -- UP Which was Neebis Island, Michigan.

I do have information regarding Elmire Tremblay's daughters, Louise, Mary, Bertha and Emma.  I also have a picture of young Bertha and Emma together.  From what I gather Elmire died in Newton, KS around Sept or Oct 1887. .  When he died Bertha and Emma were then raised by their grandparents, Pierre (peter) and Emilie Tremblay.  I have a few letters that a daughter-in-law of Emma's wrote to my great Aunt Leona (Who was one of JULIA's children) mentioning Berta and Emma were 92 & 89 in the year of 1976.  

Also a post card dated Nov 1942 to Bertha from her Aunt Armilda"Millie" stating that Aunt JULIA found tombstones Of Pierre & Emilie. 

I will be checking into the French-Canadian Society of Michigan's webpage. 

I've read articles that "all" Tremblays (or changes of spelling) are decedents of Pierre Tremblay and Ozanne Achon.

Jim... Which lineage are you connected to?

Comment by James P. LaLone on December 24, 2011 at 11:49am

Theresa, it should have read Antoine & Mare, not Antoine 7 Marie. Sorry. Also see my article posted on the French-Canadian Society of Michigan's webpage   The genealogy has been corrected and added greatly to it since it was published. Jim.
