I am hoping someone might be able to lead me in the right direction... I recently received a letter from a newfound cousin who mentioned a Lumberman's monument at the Cooke Dam on the Au Sable River in Oscoda, Michigan.My gr gr uncle's name, Will Gates, is listed on this monument. I have no idea what became of Will.All I know is that he was born in Kent county, and he was a lumberman.. If anyone might know what more information I might be able to get from the monument or anything,Please!! email me at email@example.com I live in Colorado so my Michigan research is very hard to do!
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me! Natalie
