    1. ([MIOSCEOL])LOCKWOOD - ROUSH - MORRIS Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of four photographs including two of Clara Arleen LOCKWOOD and her Mother Elma ROUSH which were taken when Clara was just 4 months old. The photograph is printed on the front of a postcard so I'm guessing it was taken between 1905 and 1920. Elma is identified as the daughter of Emma & Albert ROUSH. The third photograph is a group snapshot photograph identified with the name Helen LOCKWOOD which includes a large family group (18 members) photograph taken on the lawn next to a home. I'm guessing that this photograph was likely taken in the 1920's or 1930's. The fourth photograph is one of Mary ROUSH, Leah ROUSH MORRIS, and Berthel MORRIS which was taken at the Atherton Studio in Reed City, MI. This photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Mary identified as the "Mother of Albert ROUSH" and Leah as "Albert's Sister". Berthel MORRIS appears to be about 5-6 years old, her Mother Leah likely in her 20's or 30's, and Mary ROUSH likely in her 40's or 50's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the family: Clara Arleen LOCKWOOD was b. 21 Dec 1916 Maple Valley Township, Montcalm Co., MI to parents Charles Francis LOCKWOOD (1886-1932) and Elma M. ROUSH (1898-1979). Clara was one of three children born to this couple including, Clara Arleen; Charles Harvey; and Richard Albert LOCKWOOD all born between 1916 and 1919. Clara's Mother remarried after her Father's death, she married William Charles DICKEN (1887-1971). Clara married Howard F. INSLEY (1900-1983) and they had two children, Lorane INSLEY EDWARDS (1936-2015) and Jeffery Lee INSLEY (b. 1951). Clara died 19 Aug 1995 in Ionia, MI and is buried in the Smyrna Cemetery in Smyrna, MI. Emma Jane BANNEN was b. 13 Sept 1877 in Beverly, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada to parents Richard BANNON (1840-1919) and Margaret ARMSTRONG (1842-1929) who were married on 26 Apr 1864 in Wentworth, Ontario, Canada. Emma was one of 13 children born to this couple including, Edward; John H.; Catherine Effie; William; Robert Alexander; Isabella; Margaret; Emma Jane; James Herbert; Richard Roy; Walter; Annie; and Thomas BANNEN, all born between 1865 and 1896. Emma married Albert Michael ROUSH (1872-1955) on 29 Mar 1897 in Carol, MI and they had two children including Elma M. ROUSH (1898-1979) and Elzora ROUSH (1899-1948). Albert ROUSH was b. 6 Mar 1872 in Hastings, MI to parents Michael ROUSH and Mary FERGUSON identified below and he died 7 Feb 1955 in Belding, MI. Mary L. FERGUSON ROUSH was b. Sept 1844 in Ohio to parents George Washington FERGUSON (1816-1877) and Christina GUENTHER (1819-1885). Mary was one of 11 children born to this couple including Mary L.; James William; Betsey Ann; George W.; John Martin; Aurora Butler; Charles Michael; Franklin FERGUSON and three others, all born between 1841 and 1873. Mary died in 1922 and is buried in the Reynolds Township Cemetery in Howard City, MI. Leah Elizabeth ROUSH was b. 22 May 1869 in Castleton Township, Barry Co., MI to parents Michael ROUSH (1841-1921) and Mary FERGUSON (b. 1844) who were married 22 Jun 1865 in Sandusky, OH. Leah was one of 8 children born to this couple including, William; George E. S.; Leah Elizabeth; Albert Michael; Willard; Samuel D.; William Henry; and James Arthur ROUSH, all born between 1867 and 1883. Leah married John MORRIS and had only the one child. After the death of her husband John Leah married Ruel F. NEWBERRY (1860-1901) on 6 Jan 1900 in Sault St. Marie, MI. Leah died 3 Jun 1908 in Reynolds Township, Montcalm Co., MI. Berthel "Sherry" MORRIS was b. 19 Apr 1887 in Clare, MI to John MORRIS (b. 1820) and Leah ROUSH and she married Samuel Lawrence FLEMING (1878-1963) on 28 May 1904 in Alma, MI and together they had five children including Baby Boy; Wallace Emerson; John Donald; Leah Isabel or Isabell; and Elizabeth FLEMING, all born between 1908 and 1915. Berthel d. 11 Jul 1979 and is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Alma, MI. I am hoping to return these photographs to the family and would appreciate you contacting me if you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be. Thanks, Shelley

    1. ([MIOSCEOL])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

    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Velma TROUP which was taken at the Miller Studio in Nappanee, IN.

    3. Sorry – the previous message was not sent in plain text! Here it is again…..                            I am looking for information on the family of Job Richard William KIRTON, who was, I believe, a doctor in Osceola, Michigan in the early 1900’s.

    1. [MIOSCEOL] help reading German baptism records around 1800
    2. idirlion
    3. I now have in hand 15 scanned German baptismal records of known relatives (thank you, LDS). I can read German, however, these are written so poorly that simply making out some of the actual words is hard. I can read the key parts (names, dates), but I want to be able to read the entire entry. Does anyone know of a professional who has extensive experience reading old German documents? Thanks. best, Paul

    1. [MIOSCEOL] MIGenWebSupports Keeping the Library of Michigan Intact
    2. Jan Cortez
    3. MIGenWeb Supports Keeping The Library of Michigan Intact We, the members of the Michigan GenWeb project, wish to publicly state that we fully support the efforts of the Michigan Genealogical Council to keep the collections from the Library of Michigan from being separated or otherwise removed under Executive Order 2009-36, which disperses the archives amongst different departments and dissolves the Department of Histories, Arts and Libraries. We do acknowledge the financial crisis currently facing Michigan, however, we feel that the amount of money coming into the state from the number of tourists, visitors, genealogists, researchers and future entrepreneurs visiting the Library of Michigan is a revenue stream for the future of Michigan that the Governor should not shut down. In the words of Dr. William M. Anderson, on December 8, 2005, "I believe culture, broadly defined, is an untapped economic resource. When appropriately engaged, at local, regional, and statewide levels, our state's cultural resources can leverage significant new tax revenue, provide good paying jobs, and create sustainable enterprise. Additionally, Governor Jennifer Granholm stated on March 1, 2006, "We are going to base our economy more and more on our intellectual property, on the creative side, the value-added side of what we can offer.The power of creativity in propelling our economy is a fundamental building block of our state's transformation." The resources that the Library of Michigan holds are the stores of Michigan's intellectual property. Without them, researchers would have nowhere to find: - The largest collection of Michigan newspaper microfilm, which calls the Library of Michigan home. It covers all 83 counties of the state, over 1700 titles spanning more than 400 cities, townships, and villages. A collection of this scope cannot be found anywhere else. - The largest collection of Michigan city directories in the state. These directories document places of residence and occupations of Michiganders throughout the years. Patrons of the Library still use this collection for not only for studying genealogy, but also in planning for the future entrepreneurial enterprises and small businesses. - Ethnic Collections, like the Gorski collection, which focuses on Michigan's Polish Heritage, are not available elsewhere. - The Archives of Michigan holds over 300,000 historical photographs. Particularly important holdings deal with Michigan lumbering, Great Lakes shipping, Michigan mining, urban and rural life styles, and Michigan community scenes. - The collection also covers the entire Great Lakes Region, including New England, the Mid Atlantic, Quebec, and Ontario. Michigan is not in a vacuum. The Governor's Executive order would dissolve this part of the genealogy collection. Finally in the words of the Michigan Genealogical Council: "Innovation and Reinvention' can be done anywhere. Our state's cultural heritage center belongs together, in the Michigan Historical Center."

    3. Well, time flies when you are having a good time, but, it probably changed within the last decade.

    1. [MIOSCEOL] Noble
    2. Richard Noble
    3. I have a birth date for a George Stanley Noble born in Orient Township on 31 July 1908. Can I order that birth from the Osceola County Clerk?? The 1910 census, lists his parents as having 5 children, four living. The four living, do not include George, so would assume that he died before 1910. Is there an index of deaths, that might confirm this. I also got a date that George died 03 August 1926 in Orient, but that does not seem possible, as he does not show on the 1910 census. I'd like very much to find out when he died. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and would appreciate any help.
