    1. ([MIINGHAM])Re: [MIINGHAM] BEDFORD Family Photograph
    2. Shelley, I also have an old photograph of my grandparents that was taken at Meader's Art Studio in Williamston. In your efforts have you found out anything about Meader's, i.e. have they gone out of business? Were they in fact a Photo studio? Any info you have would be of interest.

    1. ([MIINGHAM])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin

    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Happy Hunting! Rick B Admin

    1. [MIINGHAM] SISSON Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Clarence F. SISSON which was taken at the Ellison Studio in Lansing, MI. the photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Clarence noted as 18 months old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following details regarding Clarence and his family: Clarence F. SISSON was b. 1905 in Livingston Co., MI to parents Frank Clarence SISSON (1859-1927) and Daisey or Daisy Blanche CORNELL (1870-1949). Clarence married Ruth E. W. ? (b. 1906). Census records provide the following details regarding this family: 1910 census of Lansing, MI: Frank SISSON, age 51, married 15 years, born MI, parents born Scotland/NY, a Factory Carpenter Daisy SISSON, wife, age 38, married 15 years, 1 child/1 living, born MI, parents born MI Clarence SISSON, son, age 5, born MI 1920 census of Lansing, MI: Frank C. SISSON, age 60, born NY, parents born NY, an Auto Body Factory Foreman Daisy SISSON, wife, age 49, born MI, parents born MI, a Dry Goods Saleslady Clarence F. SISSON, son, age 15, born MI Susan S. CORNELL, mother-in-law, age 70, a widow, born MI, parents born NY/NJ 1930 census of Lansing, MI: Daisy SISSON, age 56, a widow, married at age 23, born MI, parents born NY/MI, a Dry Goods Saleslady Clarence F. SISSON, son, age 24, married at age 23, born MI, parents born NY/MI, An Electric Salesman Ruth E. SISSON, dau-in-law, age 24, married at age 22, born MI, parents born MI, a Public School Teacher I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
