Great-Grandfather was Joseph Dafoe married Mary E King in Akron in 1879 and lived in Tuscola county. Joseeph died in 1923, Mary in 1950. Daughters-Elizabeth (Lizzie) Staley of Caro, Loretta (Retta) Remington of Bay City(my grandmother), Twila Smith of Baltimore. Son-William G Dafoe. Sisters of Mary E King Dafoe-Miss Loretta King, Mrs. Cora Dickenson and Miss Emma W King all of Caro. Brothers-Charles King of Caro and William King of Curtis. The information on the sisters and brothers are from Mary's obituary in 1950. I have information on a Mary Catherine Dafoe born 1-4-32, Max William Dafoe born 1-22-34, Maxine Dafoe born 3-10-35. Could be William Dafoe's childern?
My Grandmother Loretta Dafoe married John Franklin Remington 6-12-07. Children-Joseph born 12-13-08, Ronald William 3-2-13 (my father), and Kathryn born 9-9-15.
I think my information is correct, but I'm not 100% sure. I need all the help I can get.I would love to hear from the family tree.

I have Charles Sidney Dafoe born 1819 and Margaret Ann Gamble in my database. They were married in 1849. I don't have a lot of information on them or their children but what I have might help you a little.

My gg gmother Mary Jane Dafoe married Elisha P Jones in Canada in 1851. They eventually came to Michigan. I think they are buried in Vassar Michigan, but am not sure on that. They lived in the Bay City and Tuscola county area and other areas in Michigan, I believe. I wonder if she is on the same tree as these Dafoe's? Have you run across her name? Thank you kindly.

As a child, I remember "Aunt Retta" Remington visiting my Grandparents, Arthur & Clara Todd, in Plymouth, MI.
I know that we had/have some Todd relatives in the Bad Axe, Michigan area.
She was a beautiful white haired lady who was always very kind and gentle.
I hope we are related.
