I am looking for information on the Ehlen family, Joseph head of family and Augusta mother. They lived in Wayne Co Mi, during the latter part of the 1800's residing at 190 Superior ST. He was a cabinetmaker.

Their son Aloysius Ehlen married Irene Bozyk also from Wayne Co. and I wonder if there is any record of the Bozyk Family. They attended St. Elizabeth's church. I do not find this church. Was there a Catholic Church like this during that time. Joseph died in 1903 and Augusta died in 1936 buried in Mt. Elliott Cemetery. Thank you for your help

My sister and I have been trying to get information about our great grandmother, Grace McDougall. Possibly spelled McDougal. We were told she died while onboard a ship from Scotland to New York in September of 1907. She allegedly died while giving birth to our Grandmother Hazel Edna Tuffield. The father of Hazel was William James Tuffield. This family resided in Michigan in the early 1900's. We have found the grave of William Tuffield but have not been able to verify anything about his wife, Grace McDougall. We would like to find out what really became of her.

I have been searching for some information on a business that was once in Detroit. As far as I know the facts, my great grandfather was the founder. The name was STUART FOUNDRY. Today, there are still manhole covers in Detroit that say Stuart Foundry on them. This company also produced an automobile at one time, of which I hold a photo of. It would be most appreciated if I could locate any information on this foundry. I have been unsuccessful in locating anything about my great grandfather to this point. I am told his name was Walter. He married Teresa Dame. I thought he also died in Detroit and was buried there. I am not able to find any death records though. Anyway, I found this sight and thought I would give it a try.
