In the early 1900s some Heaths came from Canada and some from England to work in the coal mines around Saginaw, Tuscola, and Bay Counties. I'm looking for any descendants of those men, but especially those from England.
Names of interest are William, four or five of those, Thomas, again four or five of those, and a few of Joseph and some of Frank.
My ggrandfather was William. In 1880 he was a police constable in Birmingham England but for some reason ended up in the coal mines of the Black Country with his brothers. In 1904 he emigrated with two sons, Thomas and Edward. Thomas became a police officer in Bay City after the mines closed.
William's brother Thomas also emigrated in 1904 with two sons, William and Frank. Frank later became a member of the Michigan Senate, in 1949 to be exact.
A nephew, Frank, son of their brother Joseph, emigrated in 1912 and came to Bay City to work in the coal mines.
Later in 1904 Thomas' wife Clara and his children arrived in Bay City. Among his sons were a Thomas and a Joseph.
William had two daughters. One of his daughters, Edith, married a Mr. Carlin.
I very much would like to know who the parents of William, Thomas, and Joseph were.
But more than that, I would like to find some descendants.
