I need help finding information on my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Spicer, nee Jewell. Boyd Spicer and Mary Elizabeth were married about 1907 or '08, probably in Michigan. They showed up in Wayne Co. about 1912 with son Donald, who was about 2 years old. Boyd and Mary had eight children between 1909 and 1927, they are; Donald, Boyd Jr, Beatrice, Isaac R. (my father), Jack, Della, Sadie and Virginia. Della and Sadie are the only ones left living. Della's memory has regretfully failed and Sadie will have nothing to do with the Spicers, so I'm told.
Mary Elizabeth was killed in an auto accident in Detroit, Sept. 1931 and most of the children were adopted out, why and under what circumstances , I have no idea. But I'm told that this is the reason for Sadie's attitude.
I do not know who Mary's parents were or where she came from. The only clue I have is in a cryptic note my aunt Della sent me. It reads, "Mother Mary E. Spicer, Lincoln Park". I have no idea what that means.
Any help finding Mary, her birth date, POB and an obituary or any other information will be greatly appreciated.
