I'm looking for info on Eliga (Elijah) b in michigan 1916 and his brother Frank Ward b 1918 in Michigan.
Mother is Adeline Cummings Dukes Ward Hawkins. b 1878 in Michigan. She was in Ithaca, MI in 1900 and is from the Gratiot County area.
I believe their father is Edward Ward
In 1930 The boys are listed in Ionia, Ionia County as step-sons of David Hawkins, with Adeline Hawkins and Willie Dukes in residence. It states the boys' father was born in Massachusetts.
