|Bio and Links|
I grew up in Jackson Co., MI on the northside of town. Most of my grandmother's (on my mom's side) descendents orignally settled in that area. The Smith, Hatton and Barnes families came from England to NY and then eventually settled in the Rives Jct/Tompkins area. The Oesterle (Frey and Ziefle) family came from Germany to NY and settled in Chelsea, MI; while the Stull (Lutz, Cover & Spayde) family came from Germany >PA >OH and then settled in MI. |
Most of my grandfather's (on my mom's side) descendents remained in AR, but my grandpa along with his parents (Ratliff) and siblings migrated to MI in the 1930's; his Uncle Grace's family moved there as well. Grandpa's descendents migrated from TN >NC >MO and then into Arkansas prior to the Civil War (Campbell, Brown, Lundy, Kerr & Underwood).
My father's side of the family originally came from England. The Comstock's, (Clarke, Snyder, Hilliard, Thorpe, Holmes, Jones, Daniel & Elderkin) were some of the first to settle in Plymouth colony, MA. They then migrated to CT/RI/NY before making their way to the Parma/Springport area of Jackson County, MI. They were among some of the first families to live in MI.
Find-A-Grave does a great job. It has been my privilege to contribute information or photos when I can. I've contributed family information as well as adding memorials & photos locally from the Warsaw, Kosciusko Co., IN area where I currently live. However, it has appeared that Warsaw is well covered by volunteers, so I have branched out to the surrounding county of Wabash and will likely visit Whitley & Marshall counties in the future.

Looked at your family members. I have an Oegerle family connection, great grandfather George who came from Switzerland and married Johanna Zimmerman from Germany. They, too, named their children John, George, Mary, Rosa, but had one named Bertha who was my beloved grandmother. The Oegerle name seems to be rare, and I even wonder if he changed his name in America. One branch went to Florida (George III) and John III went to Colo. from Kansas. 3 more girls, Anna, Josephine and Kate. I enjoyed seeing your family on Findagrave.

I have updated the memorial.
|Linda||RE: Clarence Edward King|
I have the same information you did from Ancestry.com. I wrote the other person with conflicting information and asked them for documentation. I think maybe they have the wrong Clarence.

Somebody else sent me information that his parents were different from what you provided.
Can you help me?
They said his parents were Howard & Lina King???
Can you possibly delete the other reply I sent you with my email?
I sent you a message to your earthlink email and completed the SPAM block info.

|Holly||WW II details on a death|
Charles Martin was my grandma's cousin. I've always been told he was probably killed during the invasion of Normandy because no one still alive today was old enough to remember the exact details.
It appears he was killed the first day of the second battle of Kesternich in Germany.
A comment posted in 2009 stated that he was with Company B.
Do you have any more details regarding his death?

WWII US Army Veteran Pfc
