My grandfather Floyd Kanouse was the son of George Kanouse who was married to Maud Mann. George Kanouse was the son of Adelbert Kanouse and Emma Bentley. Adelbert Kanouse started a general store in Highland Twp. Osecola Co. Mi. in 1897 called Ina Store named after his daughter Ina. Most of the Kanouse's in this area are buried in the Highland Twp. Cem. about 3 miles west of Ina Store. Most of our Kanouse's came from Allegan Mi. Adelbert and Emma were living in Allegan Mi. with Emma's widowed mother Ann and her two sons. Our Kanouse's lived in Highland Twp.and around the little town of Dighton, Mi. Some still live near Ashton and Leroy Mi.
My grandfather Floyd Kanouse married Mildred Johnson daughter of Eugene Johnson and Mable Blaisdell daughter of George Blaisdell.
Our Blaisdell are married into the Kitson's also. If your still need information on any of these I will help if I can.
