Greetings. My name is Meg Fuller. I am trying to fill in gaps in my ancestry and would appreciate any help that some kind soul may be able to give.
I am currently searching the following surnames in Sanilac County- Trigger, Wilton, Samson/Sampson, Fuller, Wilson, Gruver, and Allen.
I am currently searching for information on William Trigger born 01/06/1832 in England and died 01/31/1895 in Sanilac County, Michigan. I do not have any information on his wife other than the fact that they were married in England. I know that William is buried in Downington Cemetery in Deckerville. they immigrated in 1878 to Michigan- probably through Ontario where I've also found the Trigger surname.
William and his wife had the following children:
1. James born 11/9/1854 in Robourgh, England and died 9/12/1933 in Sanilac County, Michigan. He marrief Leah Smith.
2. Eliza Trigger who married Levi Foster
3. Harold "Harry" Trigger
4. Sarah Trigger who married William O'Connell
5. Mary Jane Trigger born 1858 in Robourgh England and died 1930 in Sanilac County, Michigan. She married George Samson(Americanized version of Sampson) 2/26/1878 in Bridgehampton Twp, Sanilac County, MI. (***MY LINE***)
6. Richard "Dick" Trigger born 1858 and died 1935 in Sanilac County, MI. He married Nancy A. Raysin 8/6/1883 in Sanilac County.
7. Thomas "Tom" Trigger born 1874 and died 1936 in Sanilac County, MI. He married Alfreda nee- unknown.
I'm looking for ANY information- ancestors and descendents to help fill in the blanks. I know that there are still many TRIGGERs in Sanilac COunty, but I don't know how they fit into the tree.
