I am searching for information on Francis (Frank) Sailler/Sayles born 1854 in Germany, died 1928 in Cheboygan County, MI. We believe he immigrated around 1856. Unsure if it was from Germany as the family had ties to Canada.
US census records and family history show his surname as Sayles during his earlier years in the country.We know he later changed his name to Sailler.We think possibly as a correction for a translation mistake when immigrating.
Frank is my husband's great-grandfather and the family's brick wall.We are looking for any information on parents, siblings, place of birth, childhood, etc.
