MESSAGE for Betty Coleman re article in Feb. newsletter
I think that Charles B. Lockwood was s/o Charles D. Lockwood and Charlotte. She died 11 Mar. 1846 and is buried in West Highland Cemetery, Highland Twp., Oakland Co. Charles D. never succeed in life and was always having problems.
Charles D. Lockwood, b. NY, 1822, d. Poor Farm, Shiawassee Co., Caledonia, 1872, m. 3 times (at one time was a minister)
1) Charlotte, d. 1846, possibly mother of Charles B. Lockwood
2) Harriet Maynard, mother of Lester, divorced
3) Mary Jane Nicholson, mother of Mary, Frances, Jerusha, and Lincoln. Perhaps the daughters died in an epidemic and Mary Jane went insane as a result.
In the 1860 census for Venice, Shiawasee, MI, there is a Charley Lockwood, 39; wife, Mary J., 30; and daughters: Mary, 5; Frances, 3; and Jerusha, 1. In 1870 Charles, 45, is listed as a pauper living in the county poor house in Caledonia, Shiawassee Co. with wife Mary, 40, insane, and son Lincoln, 8, Charles registered for the draft in Venice.

Name: Judith P. Clapp <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2012-05-02 How I found this page internet search What I like best about this page information available What I would like to see on this website access to the Saginaw newspaper database Comments:
This is the second time this week that I have discovered that a library where my ancestors lived has an online newspaper database. The catch is that you need a non-resident library card. The Saginaw non-resident Library card is only $50 but the Battle Creek card is $125. This is clearly more than I want to pay! Why do the libraries feel that they even have to charge for these databases? I can understand that they don't want out of town people borrowing books that they may not return but why charge for an internet database? What is the purpose of putting a database on the internet if only a chosen few can use it?
I belong to "Genealogy Bank" for a fee of $69 per year. They not only have the Saginaw News, 1881-1922 but they have hundreds of other newspapers as well including current obituaries.
I think the libraries are doing a disservice to the public that they are supposed to be serving.

I am told that my great-grandmother, Elizabeth (Lindner) Zimmerman was naturalized sometime around 1925-1935 and was living in Saginaw at the time. The Michigan Naturalization records do not show anything for Saginaw County. Any Suggestions? Thank you, Bob

I would like to add a query to your newsletter.
I am researching Jeremiah Ferguson, b. 1794 and died 10 May 1859, Flint, MI. He married Sally Jane Olmsted (1806-20 Oct 1887 Birch Run, Saginaw, MI).
She was daughter of Jeremiah Olmsted and his wife, Mercy Wells of Northampton and Hope, NY. Their children were born in Waterloo, NY. Jeremiah Ferguson was my great great grandfather.
Thank you for your assistance.

Name: Jennifer Ewing <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2010-07-16 How I found this page Joseph Woods Sr. history of Lalena Woods Comments:
In the history of Lalena Woods by Joseph Woods Sr, a reference is made to Alice Schiesswohl having a reference to Frank Uline and an account of what happened to him after his arrest for child abuse abt. 1910. I am Frank's great, great granddaughter and would like to know the story as horrible as it may be. Frank's oldest daughter, Sadie was married to Guy Woods in 1909 which is where the connection to Lalena Woods comes in.

Rosalie Kaufman added my gr-gr-grandfather's info for Brady Hill Cemetery to FindAGrave.com: GILBERT BIRDSALL [1784-1864] stating that he was "Son of Gilbert." That phrase is the "missing link" to several generations back in the BIRDSALL line. It's not in the info online at Public Libraries of Saginaw. How do I 'document' that phrase for my family genealogy? It must be somewhere in Saginaw for her to find it. Can you help me find it?
