RE: Ethel E. Bates
Ethel E. Bates was born on June 11, 1902 in Grand Rapids, MI. Her parents were Daniel Guild Bates and Alla (Allie Wilkerson) Bates.

Daniel Guild and Allie (Alla) Wilkerson Bates were married on July 11, 1900 in the county of Berrien, MI.

Daniel Guild Bates married Minnie Louise McKenna on July 14, 1911 in Colorado Springs, CO.

According to the United States Censuses, Ethel did not live with Daniel and Minnie. I found a picture of Daniel and Ethel Bates. It was a postcard postmarked April 19, 1909. It was addressed from D.G. Bates to his niece. Written at the bottom of the picture is "His daughter - Ethel lives in Maryland." I don't know if this caption was added years later by the niece or if the little girl was living with relatives other than her father.

Susan McIntosh Chaffee
Hi again,
My apologies, my computer is so slow I toggle to the decline screen and thought my screen advanced but did not....and thought my requests were declined.

Anyways, let me know if you need anything and thanks again!

Susan McIntosh Chaffee
I see you declined the edits for the above and am not sure why.

Susan McIntosh Guild married Peter Chaffee on Jun 19 1878.

You can find a copy of the marriage record on Ancestry or I can send you a copy.

Susan and Peter are found living in Holland Michigan in the 1880 census with their children, Aba, Ira and Ida as well as her children born to she and her first husband, Richmond Daniel Guild.

The children are listed as Minnes C. Gyld age 10, William Gyld age 8 and Richmond Gyld age 6.

Susan's death record can be found on family search, it comes up under Susan F. Chaffey with a death date of Sept 15 1895.

Let me know if you need any other information.

RE: Photo Request Fulfillment
You are welcome. Perhaps you can figure out where Bertha Herrmann fits in, and whether or not Walter L Elliott is related. The 3 stones sit next to each other and are identical. Glad to help.

RE: Guild
Thank you to referring me to Guild Family history book. I found Daniel Guild and his family in there. I also found a marriage record for his second wife Sally Ann Howe. She did marry Stephen Tobias after Daniel passed away. That was in an old Grand Rapids Daily Eagle News marriage record listed in the Michigen genweb project.
Sally Ann Howe Guild Tobias and her husband Stephen Tobias are buried in the Cascade Cemetery in Michigan, and that listing was in the Michigan genweb also. Stephen's first wife Irene is buried in the same cemetery.

RE: Daniel Guild's son
Thank you for your reply. Do you know if Daniel's second wife Sally married Stephen Tobias after Daniel passed away? Do you know Sally's maiden name?

Daniel Guild's son
I saw there is an Albert Guild in Oak Grove Cemetery in Grand Rapids, MI. Is he is another of Daniel Guild's sons,possibly by Daniel's second wife Sally. I found a Sally A Tobias and Stephen Tobias in an 1860 Michigan census. Living with them are Albert H Guild and Marion L Guild. Both children would've been born prior to Daniel's death. I wonder if these two children are his since the birth year of 1844 of Albert in the cemetery matches the birth year of the boy in the 1860 census. I found a Marianna L Guild b. 1848, which matches the 1860 census birth year, m Charles T. Wallpoole on Sept. 29, 1875 in Paris, Kent, Michigan.
Sally Tobias died on August 17, 1871 in Paris, Kent,MI. I found this wile researching my relative Susan McIntosh Guild. However, Susan isn't my direct line, but her brother William McIntosh is.Just wondering if Sally Tobias was once married to Daniel & what was her maiden name. Just curious even though I'm not directly related, but have a McIntosh relative who married into the Guild family. Charlotte Briggs

RE: Catherine Snell Pictures

You're very welcome for the photos. I took them in connection with a request for Catherine and Lynn & Dorothy Bassett who are buried next to Catherine. I think they're all related.
