I am searching for anyone with information about the children of Carl August Backus and Matilda (Mattie) Zupke from Benton Harbor, Niles, Buchanan or Bridgman Michigan. There were 9 boys and 3 girls. Our Grandfather was Carl W. Backus, he left that area in 1949 and moved to California. We also would like information about Carl's wife Ruth Virginia Irwin (originally from Shelburn Indiana). Please e-mail me with any information at email@example.com. Thank You.
