You will be missed

I was ever so greatful to have had the opportunity to sit with you and discuss the family ancestry. Cousin Al Weatherburn informed me of your passing, and I recently received a call from your daughter in law asking if it would be alright to donate the photos's I sent to you of our visit and of my GGrandparents Benjiman (Bert) and Elma (Courser) Allen. I told her it would be just fine as I think that is where they belong with your collection.

You will be missed as the matriarch of our family history. I so enjoyed your stories of your school days in Winn. God bless you and keep you forever in his light, rest peacefully until we can meet again.

Your Cousin,

Ephriam Coursr
I about fell over when I found pictures of Ephriam & Martha on "Find a Grave". They are my 2nd great-grandparents,thru Alvina Courser Forquer. Her daughter, Ethel Mae Forquer,married Robert Barnard. my grandparents. One of the pictures you have posted is a group picture of the Courser family. It doesn't come thru clear enough for me to copy. Would it be possible for you to send me a copy? If not, I am still gratefull for the pictures you have provided.

Ephraim Carter Courser
Hi Sue,

I am reaching out to you in hopes that you may have some information. I am researching my husband's family history and Ephraim Carter Courser is his Third Great Grandfather. He is a descendant of Alvina Courser Forquer. I am so grateful for the pictures you have included on They are invaluable to the distant family members.

I have read some interesting stories on Ephraim on and I was wondering if you have any family history that you could share. We plan to make a trip up to Isabella County later this summer. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know.

Thank you!

RE: Bert and Elma Allen

Thank you very much I love the photos that you have posted in looking through my grandparents photos I have never seen an pictures of my Great Grandmother (that I know of) both of my parents are buried in Union Cemetery not too far away from Bert and Elma. My Aunt Connie (Carolyn) Smith now owns the family farm which is just down the road from Union on the corner of Fremont and Littlefield RD. I am so glad to have found you and this site, it will be great to learn more about the Courser family history.

I have been in contact with Vivian (Allen) Bush (Marvin and Bessie Allen's daughter sister to Ben Allen Sr) and she is going to send me some family photos as well.

Thanks again your cousin,

Allen/Couser Family information

I am the son of Arnold A Allen Jr; grandson of Arnold A Allen Sr; son of Benjamin Allen and Mary Elma Courser,. I am trying to piece together my family tree, unfortunately both my father and grandfather are both deceased and I am going on my own memories of family stories and discussions I have with my aunt Carolyn Lillie Allen (Smith) daugher of Arnold A Allen Sr and Marie Josephine Drake, granddaughter of Bert and Elma.

No one really knows what happened to the Allen side of the family once Bert passed away. Also, not much was known about the Coursers either.

Any help would be appreciated.

There is no Wamboldt Cemetery in Remus. The correct name is Wambold. You should transfer your information to Wambold Cem.
