Adelaide Mary Peters was born 30 Mar 1858 in Canada to John and Mary L (Heric) Peter(s). It is unclear at this time where in Canada the Peter(s) family was living. According to the U.S. Census records, Adelaide immigrated with her family from Canada sometime between 1862-1866. There appears to be a Peter family living in White Rock, Huron Co., Michigan in 1860 with family name similar to our John Peter(s). It is unclear if it is the same family or not. The 1870 and 1880 U.S. Census lists Adelaide living with her father in Austin, Sanilac Co., Michigan. On the 27 October 1884 in Huron Co., Michigan Adelaide marries Henry Franklin Foote. In 1888, she became a naturalized citizen of the United States according to the Census records. 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. Adelaide died on 6 August 1948 in Detroit, Wayne Co., Michigan. She was buried on 9 August 1948 in Frieburg Catholic Cemetery, Ubly, Huron Co., Michigan. Adelaide won a car in a raffle. When asked what she intended to do now that she had a new car, she replied she was going to Jacksonville, Illinois to see her two sons (Gaston and Frank) and her grandchildren.

Adelaide Mary (Peters) Foote is my great grandmother.
