HELEN LUCILLE HARKINS-STAMPER-UNGEWITTER
My name is Janet Pearson and I was wondering if the Leslie Harkins that you are inquiring about is a son of Henry "Hank" Harkins and grandson of John and Maria Harkins. Willim Harkins had a son Leslie too but I dont believe he had any children
I am currently tracing this branch of my family tree and it's been very challenging as my grandfather Melvin Harkins (son of William grandson to Henry) is no longer living. I have a couple contacts on a couple of the Harkins (children of John & Maria) but there were about 7 of them.
How are you releated ? Sorry to say I dont have any helpful info on Leslie but maybe between the two of us we solve some more pieces to the puzzle in this family.
Message: Looking for the family of Henry & Margaret Brandow Bashford who migrated to Breen, Menominee Co, MI probably in mid 1800's. I have tentatively children Julia and Peter, and for sure Calista b. 1842, Alomas b. 1845 and Willie b. 1858.
Where are these people buried and when did they die and any marriage info would be most appreciated. I would love to contact any living cousins. Margaret Brandow Bashford is an ancestral aunt of mine, the sister of Henry Brandow b. 1808 in Greene Co, NY to Wilhelmus & Sally Sawyer Brandow
Message: My gparents are Max and Rosa(Wolf) Weintraub - lived in Menominee from abt 1891-92 to abt 1896-97 and had Esther in 1893.I have looked for their marriage date either in Menominee or in NYC without success.
On the 1900 Illinois,Cook County,Lemont- stated that they were married for ten years which would be in 1890, but the only manifests that I have found state that they were single and that they came from Austria in 1890 and Romania in 1891(Rosa & Max) which means NYC or in Michigan.
I would like to know when they enter Menominee and when they left.
Message: I am looking for any information on the Family of Jesse Hamilton that was in Menominee in 1870-1880 and his wife was still there in in 1900. He was from Maine. His father was also Jesse who is my GGGr grandfather. Any informatuon would mean a great deal to me.

Message: Looking for family of Charles Kramer(son of Frank and Louisa).He was born around 1888.He had a brother,Hoyt,and sisters,Elizabeth( my grandmother)Leona,Lena,Annie and Francis.The family lived in Springwells,MI. and the parents were from Germany.Charles might have lived in Menominee.Thankyou,Susan Patterson(Spring,TX.)
Message: I've been doing some work on Kramers in Menominee, MI. I don't believe I have information on your family, but perhaps ours are related somehow. I have a Gustave Kramer who immigrated from Germany. I don't know what date he immigrated, but he was born around 1849. He married a Mary and had a son, Albert, and possibly other children. Do you think our information might be connected?
Message: Don't know if Frank Kramer had siblings, but imagine he did all immigrating at the same time.Maybe we are related--Know they settled in Springwells(now Dearborn) in the late 1880's. Frank was a farmer-learned this from my grandmother's(Elizabeth) birth certificate.She was born in 1891.I was adopted in Detroit 4-11-41 so I'm learning more all the time as I search. Many Brick walls though- But I think Charles might have landed in Menomonee because the 1930 Census has a Charles there that was born in 1888-same year as my Charles. Wish we could learn more-HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Susan Patterson(TX.)
Message: I live in Dearborn, not far from Springwells
Township, and may have some helpful data or research
suggestions for your Kramer family. You may contact

He was born somewhere in Canada and moved to the U.S. and lived at Memominee, Michigan. He died somewerhe about 1935 to 1945. He had one son, Walter Greenwood. He had some brothers also.

He is listed at Wilbert Boisvert in the 1930 United Federal Census. I would like any information available. Especially a copy of the obituary that perhaps would list other relatives. I have just been corrected. He died nearer to 1948 in Men.Michigan
Message: I am currently researching the St. Onge limb of my family tree. My direct kin is Wilfred St. Onge, who was married to Melvina Beauchamp.

Leo from 2⁄27⁄1889-10⁄1974 Ivan from 12⁄29⁄1908-5⁄1979 These men must someway be related to my Wilfred as the obit was sent along to my grandmother Victoria St. Onge Christy b.1898 d. 1979 Wilfred's daughter.If any one out there has any information on this name I would be very happy to hear from you. Thanks Mary

Message: Looks ups please. I am looking for information on the Zaupa Family who lived in Hermansville, Michigan, and the Rossato Family from Crystal Falls, Michigan. My husband's great grand father was Alessio Zaupa from Castel Gomberto, Vicenza, Italy. He arrived on August 6,1905. He went to his brother in laws home, Luige Christana. He had a cousin Guerino Zaupa who came from Cornedo, Italy, destination Alessio's home in Hermansville. Guiseppe from Cornedo on February 4,1905 ; Angelo also. Alessio had several children, Inez, Celia, Marcellina, Joseph, Elena, to name a few. Marcellina was my husbands grandmother. Marcellina married Giovanni Battista Rossato who lived in Crystal Falls, Michigan. Giovanni came her from Italy. According to our certified copy of Marcellina's marriage record it states that her father was Alessio, and her mother was Corltana Antonio. Date of marriage Sept 28,1916, Crystal Falls, Michigan. Giovanni Rossato's father was Antonio Rossato, and his mother was Madalena, both from Italy.
You should also check the ship manifests from Ellis Island. There is a web site that you can view and order the original manifests....I found my Grandfather's name on a ship. Interestingly enough, one of his sisters married a Rossatti, I wonder if it is relative because they all lived in Hermansville after coming to this country from the same area in Italy that you describe.
Sorry, I forgot to put my name on the first post. And by the way, my Grandfather's last name was Faccio, in case you run across it somewhere in your search!

Joe, actually Fisher burned twice, perhaps three times. Once in May of 1900 and then again in Oct of 1908. Pretty sure area was ablaze in 1881 also, but have no documentation to support that yet. First lumbermill and RR depot were around 1894. Northern Supply Co. came about 1895 and was subsequently sold to the C.H. Worchester Co. In late 1897 Fisher officially became known as Koss.
Message: I am looking for information on the family of Gregoire (Gregory) and Pauline BERTRAND, who resided in Menominee County in the early 1900s. I found them on a census for Nadeau in 1920, and again (in Menominee, 6th ward, on "Broadway") in 1930. This family apparently moved there from Brown County, Wisconsin somewhere between 1910 and 1920. Gregory and Pauline's children were: Eugene, Charlie, Martha, Elmer and Raymond. Gregory's mother, Mary⁄Leocadie BERTRAND was also living with them in Menominee County, although I believe she died sometime between 1920 and 1930.
I'm having some trouble finding any additional information, other than what was in the censuses. If anybody has any information, or any sources available for lookups, please let me know.
Message: New to message boards but have been so impressed with the kindness and helpfulness of the people who respond to these queries. I have gathered so much information from the answers that has helped me. I am looking for any and all information on my Grandfather and Grandmother, both deceased many years ago. They emigrated to America in 1909, supposedly to New York, where my grandfather worked a few weeks, then went off to somewhere in Pennsylvania for some time, then decided to go to Banat, Menomoniee County, Michigan. I have census records for 1920 and they appear there with some of their family. Then they moved again to Wauwautosa, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin about 1922 because their youngest son was born there. Then it was off to Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Menomonee Falls, Waukesha County, Wisconsin and then to live with my family in 1952.
I would appreciate all and any information or hints you can give me. May you receive as much help as you give to others! I hope someday I will have some information to give back to others in return.
