Needing information for these surnames. Lived in Huron County, Paris Township 1900 - at least 1910. Any information would be appreciated! Also need to know how I would find out what Catholic churchs would be in this area, at that time. Thanks in advance.

Surnames: Richard
What is your source for including Frank in the list of Joanna's siblings? I have documented Joseph, Anthony, Martha and Rosa, but not Frank. (There was also a daughter Catherina who died in infancy in 1898.)

I am researching my paternal grandfather, Frank J. Richard (1880-1959). Everything I know about him matches up with this family. His 1917 draft registration lists John as his father's first name, and when his wife died in about 1950 he moved to that part of Huron County. But he is not listed as part of this household in the 1900 census. He was 20 years old and still single and I haven't found him anywhere else in the U.S. census for that year either.

I can't find any other connection between Frank and the family you referred to. It would be extremely helpful if you could let me know what source you used to include him in your list. Thank you.

Surnames: Richard, Bescher, Bieski
Your Richard family is in the 1900 census here:

Year: 1900; Census Place: Paris, Huron, Michigan; Roll: 715; Page: 6B; Enumeration District: 15; FHL microfilm: 1240715.

All of the children in your original post are listed here except Frank.

Susie (Bescher) Richard died in 1904. See here:

The Library of Michigan; Michigan Death Records, 1897-1920; Rolls: 1-302; Archive Barcode/Item Number: 30000008530820; Roll Number: 69; Certificate Number: 8.

The death record lists her family name as Bigski rather than Bescher. At least one other family tree has it as Bieski. I have no idea which is correct.

John Richard remarried before the 1910 census. See here:

Year: 1910; Census Place: Paris, Huron, Michigan; Roll: T624_649; Page: 10B; Enumeration District: 0016; Image: 1071; FHL microfilm: 1374662.

Anthony, Martha and Rose were still living with their father and stepmother in 1910. Johanna had become Annie Lebuhn. Joseph wouldn't marry until few years later but had moved away.

Hope this helps.
