Harry Aulph, born 1977, Weland Canal, On
Where was Harry Aulph born? He was born approxiamately in 1877, possibly in the Welland Canal of Ontario? Did his family migrate from England before or after he was born? I understand he migrated into New York at age 12. He migrated through New York, down through Pennsylvania, Ohio and finally Michigan where he settled and took up farming in Washington, Michigan. He married Hattie Bell Phillips. They had five boys and one girl. The boys were named Harold, Roy, Harvey, John Clive, and Joseph. The girl was named Jeraldine and she married William Hengel. Harry moved his family to Royal Oak, Michigan after the youngest child, Joseph was born in 1919. He worked farming in Royal Oak and as a maintenance man at the local elementary school Longfellow. Does anyone know how I would go about finding a record of his birth?
I am writing a biography about his life for the school he worked at, Longfellow. I teach there as a substitute teacher in the Royal Oak, Michigan public school system.
