of Wayne County, later Bridgeport, Michigan.

Their children were John, Thomas, (my grandfather, later
changed name to Martin Thomas Sepanio, of Brimson and
Virginia, Minnesota. Married Maranda Maude Perrault, daughter of Treffle and Florence Perrault) and 3 daughters,
Mrs. Pabst, Mrs. John Ecker of Flint, and Mrs. George Busha of Avoca.
Mary was the sister of Mrs. Frances Krusniak, Mrs. Marcella
Pawelczak of Carrollton, and Mrs. Catherine Smokoska of
