I've look for my Allerdyce roots since 1997 with little luck. But that has change just in this month.In December I found my gr gr grandmother Rosetta A.(Townsend) Allerdyce 1848 - 1916(wife of Alexander Allerdyce)in the Forest Home Cemetery,Luce County, Newberry, Michigan records.There were two other Allerdyce in the the same records, James G. 1886 - 1952 and Ethel D. 1896 - 1969.
I also found Alexander in the U.S. Census:
Michigan, Wayne County, 1870 Michigan, Clare County, 1880 Michigan, Emmet County, 1910 Michigan, Luce County,1920
I have yet to find the Allerdyce family in the 1900.I do know that they lived some where in Alexander and Rosetta's A. daughter Rosetta M. was shown to be born in Mecosta County, Michigan.
I have more information that at this time I'm still verifying.I will working on the rest of the information that I have as of now.
If anyone could have me find the Allerdyce family in the 1900 Michigan. Counties that I know they lived in were Clare, Luce, Emmet.They may have been living in Mecosta or Isabella Counties.
