HI Jason,
My wife's mother was a Phelps. There are two lines of the family in Michigan and Wisconsin. There was a Frederick Nelson Phelps who moved from Michigan to Wisconsin,then into the Iowa and Nebraska area some time in the late 1800's. He married a woman named Belle but we connot locate any relatives. Do these names sound familiar.

Hi There,
My wife's mother was born in the Saginaw, MI area. Her father lived in the Saginaw/Helmock area. We can trace some of the family back to the Baltimore Md area, via Illinios and Ohio.

Hi Harold, I do not have any info on William Phelps of Ottawa Co at this time. As far as I know the Phelps family I am looking for came from either Eaton or Calhoun Counties. However the info I have is very limited and have just begun to search this family. I will keep a copy of your query and if I run across anything for William I will send it on to you.

Hi Merl,
I am looking for the family of Corydon Phelps father of Nettie Phelps or could be a nickname for Henrietta. Nettie may have married a man named Albert Collins as she had a son named Lauren Collins. She was from Eaton County, Mi. She was married 2nd to Charles B. Putnam. Later they moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I Think Nettie was my great grandmother but still trying to prove this. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Peggy

None of your names jump out at me from the census name. Do you have some dates to go with the names in case I come across something in my digging.
