RE: Follow on message
Hi, ok I'll hold off. facts posted on Ancestry aren't always correct. Maybe you can contact the city hall and ask for a burial certificate copy. That would show his death date, just a sugestion.

RE: Carr
Hi, Barbara. here is the reworked bio I came up with. I hope it works. I also submitted edits to his place of birth (Unadilla) and added links to his parents that need your approval.


Michigan Supreme Court Justice. Born on a farm in Unadilla Township, Michigan, Leland attended Michigan State Normal College at Ypsilanti, Michigan before graduating from the University of Michigan law school. Before entering a private law practice in Ionia, Michigan, he taught school in Marine City, Michigan and became superintendent of schools there between 1906 and 1908. From 1908 until 1910 he served as the superintendent of schools in Ely, Nevada. He served at assistant prosecuting attorney for Ionia County, Michigan until being appointed an assistant attorney general in 1913. Michigan Governor Alex Groesbeck appointed him to the Ingham County circuit court bench in 1921, where he remained until being appointed to the Michigan Supreme Court in 1945 by Governor Harry Kelly. Before his elevation to the state's highest court, Leland was called upon to serve as head of a one-man grand jury investigation into corruption within state government. Trial lawyer, and later governor, Kim Sigler served as the special prosecutor. Scores of elected officials, lobbyists, police and court officials were eventually convicted, but not before the murder of a prominent witness who had been granted immunity. Members of the famous Purple Gang were convicted for conspiracy in the murder. Leland's tenure on the supreme court lasted until 1963. During that time he served as chief justice in 1947, 1955, and 1962 to 1963.

RE: Carr
Barbara, when you said the bio had been revised, is this what you ended up with: "Lawyer; circuit judge in Michigan 30th Circuit, 1921-45; appointed 1921; elected unopposed 1921, 1941; justice of Michigan state supreme court, 1945-63; appointed 1945; chief justice of Michigan state supreme court, 1947, 1955, 1962-63. Married to Roxie Irene Lindow and had four children. Dorothy, Ruth, Clarice and Leland Jr."? If so, I will try to revise it further to fit the guidelines when I get some time, hopefully this week. When I do, I'll send it back to you to resubmit.

RE: Carr
Thank you for offering to let me manage the Carr site, but the only family connection was that Dorothy (Leland Jr's wife) was my dad's first cousin. I doubt that I'll have any additional information that I can provide or that I am likely to be in receipt of, so I suggest you continue to take care of it. At least I know that someone is watching for edits in case anything comes up unexpectedly in the future.

RE: 153949349 Gertrude See
That certainly sounds like the same Gertrude, and hello, cousin. I'll amend the death date to agree with what you found-- April 2, 1890 in Milwaukee-- but will also keep looking for actual documentation, rather than the place my original info came from-- other family trees. I do get back to Marytown, too, occasionally (I grew up there, until I was 16) and will look for the graves of the Sees.

Thanks for the message about Gertrude See's death date. I'm searching for an original source; my sources are other family trees. In the meantime, we should confirm that we're talkinng about the same Gertrude See. My great-great-grandmother Gertrude [Porz] See was the daughter of George Porz and Anna Rademacher, and she was born in the Rheinland, where she married Nicolas See in about 1834. As far as I know, she did not live in Milwaukee, or die there. I hasten to add that I'm willing to explore this further-- I want to get it right, too. How are you related to Gertrude See?
