I am Joyce BATTERBEE Fox ... daughter of Willard Batterbee who was the son of Harry Batterbee. Harry was the son of Robert Batterbee who immigrated to the U.S. in the mid-19th century. The family lore is that he came here to avoid debtor's prison. I know Robert had a brother who was sent to Australia at the same time for debt and that branch of the family has prospered. Robert settled in Michigan, became a saloon "swamper" (cleaner), later a preacher and died after "falling off the wagon". Harry was born around 1880 or '90 in Michigan.Willard was born in the northern LP in 1913. Willard had five children ... Dawn Batterbee Miller (presently of Florida and Lansing, Michigan); Clifford Batterbee (presently of Mancelona, Michigan); Wanda Sue Batterbee (deceased); James S. Batterbee (presently of Ovid, Michigan) and me. Harry and his wife, Celestia had (I believe) 11 or 13 children and Willard was the oldest son. There was one daughter, Rosalie, who was older than he was. Some of my aunts and uncles were: Alice, Eunice, Phillip, Noel, Robert, Rosalie, & Mark.
