I am looking for any descendants of William R. and Hettie (Hunter) Sayles. William was born abt. 1839 in Ontario, Canada and is the son of Elias Sayles. He died October 19, 1906 in Keene Twp., Ionia Co., Michigan and is buried in Saranac Cemetery. His wife was Hettie Jane Hunter born April 21, 1844 in Bloomfield Twp., Oakland Co., MI. and is the daughter of Charles G. and Jane (Porter) Hunter. She died January 15, 1895 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and is also buried in the Saranac Cemetery.
There children were, according to 1880 Census for Keene, Ionia Co., MI., Charles Sayles and was 17 years of age and Elroy Sayles, 15 years of age. I know that Elroy married Mary J. Wilson, daughter of John Wilson and Mary Wallace. They had one daughter Glennis who married a Lester Abbott.
What happened to their son Charles Sayles? Did he marry and have a family? And, did Glennis and Lester Abbott have children. Would love to hear from anyone with any knowledge of these families. Thank you.
