According to 1920 Census info that I received today from another guy, my grandfather Terry Everett lived in Perrinton twp?.Here is the info sent to me:
1920 Census: Terry Everett 31, b. Mi Asst Engineer Florence Everett 28 yrs b.Mi Father b. Penna? maybe gfather Robert L son 3 1/12 yrs.b.Mi Celestia dau 1/2/12 yrs.b.Mi Source: Vol 23; E.D. 38 Sheet 12 line 78. Source: Gratiot Co, Penninton Village? (fuzzy writing)
My question is does this name/family ring any bells with anyone?Did they have other family near?Is this where my grandmother Flossie Pifer Everett's (according to everything I have so far her name was not Florence as above?)family were from ??I heard (family rumor here) they (Terry, Flossie and children) were moved up to northern Michigan by county officials?? in early 1931? and were promised land with a house on it and got nothing but dropped off with 8 little kids in the middle of nowhere in the winter?My dad was the only one born in the north in 1932. His father Terry died when he was 12 yrs old. AND even weirder is all the older kids would never again talk about life before moving north and if my dad brought it up he was discouraged.He remembers hearing them say a boy named Robert DeHaven lived with them as if they raised him and that is possible because when Robert was 7 in 1910, he lived in Millie Everett's home and that is my great grandmother.She died shortly after that Census?I need more info and would like to hear from anyone that may know anything at all.My dad also called me a short bit before i opened this last message and said he remembered the names Alfred and Lena Mick and that if he remembered right htey were cousins to his mom or dad??They adopted a boy one year or so younger than my dad and his name would be Donald Mick-Dad thought he might have gone to dental school?Another name he remembered hearing alot was the nickname??Novey or Novi or Knowvey??He thinks it may have been someones first name but not the last name?This person would have been about 20 years older than my dad?
please let me know if any of this rings a bell for firstname.lastname@example.org
