The Smith Family
of Manistique, Michigan
(Notes by Brian, October 2000)
According to his army discharge document, William E.G. Smith (1900-1957) was born in Manistique, Michigan.
In September, 2000, I contacted Florence T. "Alex" Meron, CGRS, a genealogist in Manistique who has microfilmed many of the records from the Michigan upper peninsula. Here is what she found:
Ms. Meron adds, "Looks to me like the mother Emma had been married before. The name Remefelt (?) has line then St. John written in."
Under Michigan law these records are closed to the public for 110 years. So they should become open to the public by 2010.
