In search for my Family Heritage I am researching the following surnames: YAGER (YEAGER), BOSHAW (BUSHAW, BEAUCHAMP), HILL, KITCHEN, HANKINS, GREENE, WILDE, and WAGNER.
In my quest to learn more about my Family I have been able to verify the following information with various records.
The YAGER--YEAGER and BOSHAW--BUSHAW--BEAUCHAMP family has been traced from Cadillac, Wexford County, Michigan; to Flint, Genesee County, Michigan; to Port Huron, Saint Clair County, Michigan; and into Canada. My Great-Grandfather was ABEL YEAGER-YAGER (the first e in his last name was dropped with him) was born on February 20, 1861 in Canada and died on April 2, 1907 in Cadillac, Michigan. He married MARY ELNORA BOSHAW on October 31, 1899 in Fort Gratiot, Saint Clair County, Michigan. She was born March 3, 1871 in Saint Clair County, Michigan and died in Cadillac, Michigan on August 28, 1938.
