I am seeking information about the Sites family in Oregon Twp., Lapeer Co, MI. The family came to Oregon Twp from Baden-Baden via NY bet. 1855-1857. The head of the family was Joseph Andrew Sites (orignally Joseph Andreas Sitz) married to Barbara ?. Land was purchased in Sec.22 of Oregon Twp. In the census records the name is alternately spelled Sites or Sitz among various family members. By 1880 the name Sitz disappears and the name Sites is used exclusively. Joseph Sites is my 3rd great grandfather.
Children of Andrew Sites include Francis, Franklin, John, Andrew Jr., Maria, Orlando, Charles, and Sophia (my 2nd great grandmother).
Several family members are buried at the Oregon Twp Cemetery (Old German Cemetery), Lapeer Co, MI. Family members married into the Reamer and Ferns families in the county.Other family members migrated to Arenac Co, MI in the early 20th C. and are buried at Cedar Valley Cemetery, Mason Twp, Arenac Co, MI.
I have a fair amount of information about the family, but desire more. Would particularly like to make contact with members of this family line. I have photos of some gravestones and a photo of my 2nd great grandmother Sophia Sites Ferns.Any assistance would be appreciated. Will share.
