In researching my Gosselin tree I have come accross some Heafers/Haefers that I am trying to figure out the relationship of. In the 1900 Great Falls, Cascade County, Motana census opn Smelter Avenue, I find a FLORENCE HEAFER living at the residence of my Gosselins and her relationship is listed as "neice", age 13, birthplace Michigan, birthplace of Father Germany, birthplace of mother Wisconsin.
Also in the 1900 Great Falls, Montana census I find a family of HEAFERS on 8th Avenue North. I suspect that this may be Florence's family, they appear as follows:
Heafer, Sophia - Head, F, W, 44 Wisconsin
Heafer, Frederick - Son, M,W, 21, Michigan
Heafer, Otto - Son, M, W, 16, Michigan
Heafer, George - Son, M, W, 14, Michigan
I am trying to determine the connection between these Heafers (I believe it may actually be Haefer) and my Gosselins. Any additional info is appreciated.
