I'm looking for information on Grace Elizabeth Telford.Everything i have on her is family-hand me down.
From her son: Grace was born April 16, 1874 in Canada. She first married Robert Hiram Starrett of Illinois in 1890.They had a son William born in 1891.Robert left shortly after.
Grace remarried Leander Shook of Wayland, Michigan in 1894.Their children were Kate (1894), Frank (1896), Maggie (1898), Mary (1900), Freddie (1902), Nina (1904), Asa (1906), Glen (1908), Randy (1910), Sinclair (1912), Ethelyn (1915), and Edwin (1919)
Grace was the oldest of 5 children.Her folks were from Ireland and settled in Canada.They were very poor and had a hard time raising their family.When Grace was 9 and her brother,Bob, was 7 they were given away to a family by the name of Widow in Travers City, Michigan.
From her granddaughter: The same story as above except she remembers the names as John and Tom.One being the name of Grace's father and the other being the name of her brother that was given away.
Hope someone can help identify Grace's family group. Theresa
