Re: John Arthur Helferich in Columbiaville Michigan 1885
Many thanks Jim for the information I really appreciate it. Hoping this will get me on the right trail of locating Henry and Catherine Sayles.Especially now that I have her correct maiden name which has been an issue in the past. Was it Utter, Stoepler or Stepples or Stepler? This confirms Stepler! At last!And it shows a place of origin. Very helpful.
It can be a small world as I've lived both in Metamora and Columbiaville, MI in the past. We now reside in Norther NY state in Jefferson County. I'd hate to be someone trying to track our movements :o)
Apparently I've found that the Sayles farmed for the Peters in Collumbiaville, my father and family were still there when children but than moved on to Imlay City than Vassar. One story came down that my uncle burned down the outhouse in Columbiaville........besides other tid bits.
Warmest Regards, Linda Chaney
