    3. Since almost all the references you refer to are in Kent County, I would recommend that you contact the Western Michigan Genealogical Society to see if there are any connections there. Pam Swiler -----Original Message----- From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of Shelley Cardiel Sent: Saturday, August 24, 2013 12:15 AM To: [email protected] Subject: [MIIONIA] COGSWELL Family Photograph I've "rescued" an old photograph of Everett COGSWELL which was taken at the Philley Studio in Lowell, Michigan. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Everett only an infant at the time. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Everett and his family: Everett C. COGSWELL was b. 28 Apr 1888 in Boston or Lowell, Michigan to parents William H. COGSWELL (1863-1906) and Zella M. CARR (1864-1925), both parents born in Michigan. Everett married Mary or Marie L. CUNNINGHAM SERVOSS (1882-1972 the dau of Andrew & Elizabeth CUNNINGHAM) on 4 May 1922 in Cedar Springs, MI. Everett was living in Pontiac, MI when he registered for the draft in 1917 listing his occupation as a Cook and his employer as Cliff Root. Everett d. 9 Dec 1962 in Lansing, MI and is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Lowell, Michigan. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Hinton Township, Mecosta, MI: William H. COGSWELL, age 37, born Jan 1863, married 13 years, born MI, parents born MI/NY, a Farmer Zella M. COGSWELL, wife, age 35, born Oct 1864, married 13 years, 1 child/1 living, born MI, parents born Canada/MI Everett C. COGSWELL, son, age 12, born Apr 1888, born MI, at School 1920 census of Grand Rapids, MI: Frank H. MISNER, age 52, born MI, parents born USA Zella M. MISNER, wife, age 54, born MI, parents born Canada/MI Everett COGSWELL, step-son, age 31, born MI, parents born MI 1930 census of Grand Rapids, MI: Everett C. COGSWELL, age 42, born MI Marie L. COGSWELL, wife, age 45, born MI 1940 census of Grand Rapids, MI: Everett COGSWELL, age 51, born MI, a Paint Store Painter Mrs. Marie COGSWELL, age 56, born MI I am hoping to locate someone from this COGSWELL Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
