I am searching for the Elias Truax family who lived in either Middleton or Midland Michigan between 1857 and 1864, possibly a little longer.
The wife was known as Mary "Kate" McDermott Truax
Children born in Middleton or Midland MI include:
Mary Ann TRUAX born 1858
Ellen Agnes TRUAX born 1861
Frank TRUAX born 1861
James TRUAX born 1863
Any assistance would be most welcome.
In 1871, family legend has it that they were living in Chicago during the great fire.
By 1878, they were in Benton County Arkansas.
