Surnames: Figur, Fegor, Feguer, Strausmann, Strawsman, Labadie
I am researching a Robert Fegor who states he was born in Gratiot county, Michigan on his WWII draft registration card.
He appears to be in the home of William J Fegore and Marie Strausmann/Strawsman he moved to Detroit married a Anna Labadie and had a daughter named Dorothy. Here is my question the family immigrated to St Johns, Michigan from Germany in 1883 in the area are other Fegor's who later spell their names Feguer and I suspect these families are all one in the same, or are they? Anyone know about these families?
They also lived in North Plains, Ionia county Michigan and I believe some of their children married in Ionia county.

I just saw your post from last year. My great-grandmother (Sarah) was a sister to Robert Feguer. You are correct that the two spellings are one in the same. They did live mostly in the Gratiot County area. Let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you for your response. I suspected as much, I believe there were several children who lived in the area and who died young. It is not my family but my children's family on their father's side. Thanks for the information though.
