Henry Franklin Foote was born 4 May 1858 in Amhertsburg, Ontario, Canada to Frank and Oney (Frane) Foote. He was raised in the Catholic religion. He resided with his parents in Canada until sometime between 1878 and 1884. According the Canadian Census of 1881, he is still with his father, Frank (Martain) Foot(e) in Colchester South Essex, Ontario, Canada. However, the U. S. Census of 1900-1930 list his immigration as dates between 1878 and 1884. His obituary states that he came to Sanilac Co., Michigan in 1883. He was in Huron Co., Michigan on 27 October 1884 as this was the day he married Adelaide Mary Peter(s). In 1886, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States according to the Census records though family stories say he never became a citizen. Henry was a lumberjack 10 years in the woods of northern Michigan before settling on a farm in Argyle, Michigan. According to the 1900 U. S. Census, he was farming in Argyle. Eight children were born to Henry and Adelaide:– Clayton Edward, Stanley John, Ona Mary, Franklin Henry, Gaston William, Jane Olive, Charlotte, and another child unnamed. Henry died 25 March 1950 in Detroit, Wayne Co., Michigan. Henry was a trustee of the Argyle School district for many years. He was preceded in death by his wife, Adelaide. He was buried on 27 March 1950 at Frieburg Catholic Cemetery, Ubly, Huron Co., Michigan. Henry was known to have had red hair but none of his children received the trait. (It is, however, evident in his grandchildren.)
