|Bio and Links|
I am an retired electrical engineer who got into family research a few years ago. Now am an adict on finding family history I live in Michigan, which itself is a font of history, and have found that my family were pioneers and have famous connections, much of which I hadn't known about. Taking pictures of headstones connected to the family has helped tidy up family relationships, since with the headstone dates, a person can go and look up old newspapers for more data. Along with some other sites like ancestry.com, findagrave is a nice way to leave some of that history to be found by others.|

|Petoskey History 1852-2002||RE: Leonard Paige|
Many thanks! I am sharing this with Leonard’s granddaughter Kendra. She will know doubt share it with her father (Chuck). I appreciate you as always!
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||Fettig, Louis and Edna|
Hello! Just added their son to your memorials. I was surprised to learn he had died so young. Cheers.

P.P.S. Jim. I made the modern day photo of the buildinglook better by taking out the automobile, however, I can remove them if you have more appropriate photos of the building. Thanks again. I will be in touch soon.
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||RE: Grocery Building|
Hi, Jim! I so appreciate the message and great history. I took the liberty of enclosing a current day photo of the building thinking you would get a kick out of it––especially since you can see the hill where you once built forts. I’m pretty sure I know right where you mean. There's a small building there now (I think) but in many ways the hill looks the same.) I added this to George Saxon Danser Memorial as well, and will incorporate the history you discovered––tomorow I hope. Looking forward to writing to you and learning more about the sources you found and the red brick house on Grove Street I always called “God’s House.” Looking up at it from Petoskey and State, I thought it was in the sky. Many thanks!
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||Danser and The George Zipp Family|
George Saxon Danser owned Petoskey Wholesale Grocery Building, where George Zipp later had his lumber company, and then Dansers ended up across the street. (Opposite corner). was moved across the street in the late 1940s or 1950s,
I have not to date found any photos of the building. I think they should be here for both the Danser families and the Zipp families.
Here is what I have so far:
George Saxon Danser operated his company, Petoskey Wholesale Grocery Company, out of his block long three story brick building known by the same name. It was located on Petoskey, State, and Grove Streets. His building is listed on the National Historical Building Register.
At some time, Mr. Danser's business relocated across the street to 308 State, on the corner of Petoskey Streets, and also, became known as Danser and Company. It was eventually operated by Mrs. Danser's son, the late George W Danser. In 1969 it was sold to Frost-Pack (Sysco) Distributing Company.
HERE IS WHAT I FOUND ON THE NATIONAL HISTORIC REGISTER
Petoskey Grocery Company Building was added to the National Historical Building Register in 1986 - - #86002051)
Also known as George T. Zipp Lumber Company Building
616 Petoskey St., Petoskey

Just now saw the bio. What a nice job you did!
|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: Mathias Kruzel|
Thanks for the changes. Appreciate it. Does get somewhat confusing trying to figure out some of the family when names are so differently spelled too.
As for Joseph and Josephine Kruzel, I will search around and find out more info on if he was married twice to two different Josephine's. Possibly she was married twice??
Thanks also for the many transfers of the families I requested in the past.
Will keep you posted when I find for info...
|Jana Marie Lashmit||Catherine Kruzel- Sobleski|
Meant Joseph's sister Catherine married John Sobleski.
|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: Fabian Kruzel|
I do not see Joseph's parent's listed in his obit.
The Sobleski son you are referring to was Joseph's daughter's husband. Catherine Kruzel married John Sobleski.
I found this on the LDS family search:
Name: Joseph Krusell
Age (Expanded): 45 years
Birth Year: 1845
Spouse's Name: Josephine Hoboski
Spouse's Age (Expanded): 45 years
Spouse's Birth Year: 1845
Spouse's Birthplace: Germany
Event Date: 21 Jul 1890
Event Place: Cross Village, Emmet, Michigan
Father's Name: Mathaias Krusell
Mother's Name: Francis Karamell
Spouse's Father's Name: Mike Mcdonnel
For Fabian's parent's it lists Matthew and Martha Karomel. So I am thinking her name must've been Martha Frances or Frances Martha????
Thank you for your reply.
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||RE: Mrs. Homer...etc|
Thanks, Jim. I understand. I also enjoy the research and very much appreciate having you to consult with on our various departed friends in the Little Traverse Bay area. I believe the biography on Mrs. Homer was originally written by me prior to the discovery her biography already existed. I then deleted mine and sent the information to person who had originated her memorial, and he posted it for me. It would however be great to have more information about the family. They first came to my attention via a newspaper article sent to me about Mr. Homer. I vaguely remember the Emmet Lunch either through being their or from my ancestors recollections. Not sure. If you have additional information, i am sure the originator (Tom ?) would add it. He is good about such matters. Thanks again!
