Hi, I am searching for my paternal family. I know my2GGrandfather's name, but little more.
William BEGGS born ? possibly in Scotland
Children: Joseph BEGGS born Between 1860-1870 in "Eng Canada".
Spouse: Clara(h) GREEN born 18JAN1883 in Holton, Michigan
Francis (Frank)Leon BEGGS(My Gramps) born 02NOV1904
(Joe & Clara's marriage looks like it could've been a shotgun wedding! LOL)
Archibald (Archie) McClean BEGGS born 25DEC1906
Thelma BEGGS born 1909
Madeline (Midge) BEGGS born 01JAN1911
All the children being born in Colfax Twp., Oceana County, Walkerville, MI
Joseph is also buried in the Colfax Twp. Cemetery. He died 03NOV1911 of pnuemonia at the age of 49yrs 7mths 20 days.
The only other clue I have is that Joseph's mother may have been born in "Eng Canada" also.
I found William's name on the US Census of 1910, that Joseph filled out. Also William's name is on Joe & Clara's marriage certificate.
I can't find where Joseph was before coming to Oceana Co., Michigan though.
Any help is needed, wanted, and very much appreciated.
Thank you for your time and help in this matter.
