Doris Lydia Colson Denhof
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 21, 1903
Newaygo County
Michigan, USA
Death: Oct. 18, 2001
Grand Rapids
Kent County
Michigan, USA

Born to Charles Perkins and Freda Johnson - when she was 6 months old her mother died and her father took her older brother Milo Perkins and moved to Lansing, leaving Doris with the neighbors, George Colson and Anna Buskirk Colson.

George and Anna divorced and George moved away and remarried and had another family. My grandma remembers her grandma Colson (Anna) but not George and Doris never mentioned George to me.

Her birthdate is not verified as the birth records burned. When she applied for Social Security she had to jump through hoops to prove she even existed due to this.
