Margaret Hurteau Dumas Ford was my great grandmother b. Nov. 1861 Waukegan, Lake Co., IL She was married to Ezra Dumas in 1877 Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac Co., WIThey came to Manistee, Manistee Co., MI in 1879-80their children were Emery b. 1878, Ezra Oliver b.1880 (my grandfather), Mamie Dumas b.1881, Adeline b. 1891 and Joseph Ernest b.1893. ( I wanted to correct the names of Dumas not Damas and Joseph Ernest not Ernest J.)(Margaret was her name not Marguerite.
I am interested in the comment saying Neal D. and Margaret Dumas were just married within the month.Can I ask if this is in the census?Neal and Margaret were married in 1899, or at least that is what I have.I always thought they had married in 1900, but their son was born in Sept. 1900!!That would be a close one.Very interesting.
