My grandfather, Augustus Henry Shier was born in Ontario, Canada. He came to Michigan in about 1865. Married my grandmother, Eloise Angela Drake and had 9 children all born in Michigan. Robert Francis, James Augustus,he died there, Walter Louis, Esther Lavinia, Milo Montgomery, Nellie May,Maude Alice,Hobart Cornelius, he only lived 2 days, Minnie Lillian, my mother. They all, as far as I know eventually ended up in Oregon. Don't think this will help you but maybe.
