I would definitely like to have a look at any information you might have.
I am Steven A. Addy, born in 1950 in Ohio, raised in Michigan and for the last 30-yrs,a resident of North Carolina. Oddly, I lived on Kensington Avenue in Detroit in the mid-to-late 1970s. My father was Donald J. Addy, born in Detroit in 1926 and also an attendee of DeLaSalle. My grandfather was David V. Addy, born in 1898 in Casco Township, Mi. He lived on Outer Drive and was Auditor General of the City of Detroit until the 1960s. His father was Joseph Peter Addy, born in 1866 or 67 in Casco Township, Mi. and married to Celina Beaufait.
My great-great grandfather was Peter "Pierre" Joseph Addy who died in 1909 in Anchorville, Mi. Depending on the source, he was either born in 1842 or 45 in Switzerland, then migrated to Michigan in 1860; or according to his son Joseph Peter Addy's birth/baptismal certificate was born in the USA in 1845; or according to his son's death certificate, was born in 1845 in France.Pierre'swife was Margaritte Biendit (aka Bendit, Beindit) born in 1847 in Switzerland and migrated to the US in 1852.
Pierre's father, my great-great-great grandfather was Peter Addy, born in 1810, possibly in Switzerland, and according to the1880 census, a farmer in St. Clair, Michigan. Joseph Peter Addy's birth/baptimal certificateidentifies Peter, his grandfather, as born in the USA (like it does his father "Pierre").
It's becoming evident that in the nineteenth and twentieth century, one could probably become a citizen by simply identifying his or herself as born in the USA. Short of checking immigration records, who would know the difference. Makes record checking difficult.
Anyway, there appear to be more than a few "coincidences"here. Perhaps we should compare notes.
