Looking for descendents and for information on the ancestry of Charles Roy/King and Mary Lecompte/Lecomte, my g-g-grandparents.
Charles was born in 12/1840 in Canada, and died 9/3/1901 in Osceola Township, Houghton County, Michigan.
Mary b. 11/1849 in Canada, and d. 1926.
Charles, age 28, and Mary, age 16, were married on 8/12/1865 in Hancock, Houghton County, Michigan by Edward Jacker, a Catholic Missionary. Witnesses were Joseph Moraque (sp?) of Hancock and George Lecomte, of Houghton.
Charles was listed as a boot/shoemaker in Schoolcraft Twp., Groverton, Torch Lake, Lake Linden, and Tamarac City on the census records of 1870, 1880, 1900, birth and death records of his children, and in his obituary notice.
Charles, Mary, and many of their children are buried in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Lake Linden, Houghton County, Michigan.
Children of Charles and Mary:
