I am researching my grandfathers family, and have hit a brick wall. family stories say his father went by the name 'Mick' but it was actually Dominick. i also have a obituary/death card in which his name is Mike. However, when i researched the census records, i found him listed as Demick (1910, in Danville, Illinois) and as Mick (1920, Capital Township, Illinois). I know his mothers name was Florence, and he had a brother named Joseph E (1910 census) and sisters named Anna M and Stella M (also 1910 census). After marrying into the Baima family, Florence married James Babatory (1920 census) and had 2 children (Carl and Louise Babatory). According to the census, Florence was born in Indiana and her children were all born in Illinois.
Mick/Mike Baima married Johanna Christina Biederstedt, after they got divorced he lived in illinois until he died (5 mar 1988). He never married again (according to family stories), but did have a live-in girlfriend for many many years.
if any of this rings a bell with anyone, please e-mail me or reply!!
