I do not have a lot to tell.
Guy was born in Durham County Ontario about 1854 as seen in 1861 census ...son of Alpha Soper and Jane Mallory.
His wife believed to have been Sarah McDougald born 1859 Canada died 14 Dec 1898 Caseville Huron Michigan. A birth record shows a son Alpha Benjamin Soper born 16 Aug 1886 Thunder Bay Ont. Beyond that I have nothing but 2 of his brothers ...Timothy and Alpha lived in Michigan

I’m not related to any member of this family.


There is a 20 yr gap in the census records from 1880 to 1900. If the Soper family immigrated during that perios they will not be seen until 1900.

Guy Soper did not immigrate to Mich.
Can't find any record for him.

It is strange because i find that his wife Sarah nee McDougald died Caseville 14 Dec 1898.

His son Chester Guy Soper died 30 Aug 1900 .....I saw the death certificate signed by Guy Soper of Pigeon ( must be a town or village ) . Chester was to be buried in Caseville Cemetery.

So one is puzzled to not find Guy in any census. However I do appreciate your efforts to help.

Ruth,

15 year old Guy is boarding with Samuel and Jane Foster in Huron County, 1900.

45 year old Guy 'Sopher' is boarding with Reuben and Sarah 'Doge' in Huron County, 1900.

Sarah and son Guy are both recorded burial in Caseville Cemetery. My own searching cemeteries in that area is dismal... so good luck.

Thanks . Yes , I saw death certificate for son Guy and 1900 entry but had not seen father Guy perhaps due to spelling.
So many Sopers went to Michigan and all used same names over and over. Unable to find anything about the father Guy Soper.

Being unfamiliar with counties of Michigan is also a handicap. But perseverance must be a virtue.
