According to my information, the Tobias Coon who died 12/29/1905 at the Soldier's Home in Grand Rapids had the following children:
Isaac b. 1848
Arminda/Lorinda (twins) b. June 15, 1851
Isabel b. 1854
Henry b. 1856
Lelown b. 1860
James b. 1863
Posmer b. 1867

I may have misread Lelown and Posmer on census records, as they were somewhat hard to read.

This is also what I have for this Tobias Coon. His son Isaac is the one that married my Gr Grandpas sister Mary Elisabeth Coon...Tobias was my 3rd Gr. Grandmothers brother her name was Elizabeth. I don't recall any Asman,William or Belle as any of his children.
Parents of Tobias M. Coon were George S. Coon and Christiana Mohr/Moore. Tobias was born abt. 1822 in southern Ohio maybe Belmont Co. Tobias and wife Eleanor Decoursey married in Allen Co. Ohio in Oct. 1843. Tobias's family moved to Allen Co. Ohio in 1832 when he was a young boy. He grew up in Shawnee Twp. Sometime before 1870 he moved his wife and children to Michigan, I believe that is why my Gr grandfathers family moved up there abt 1869. I believe there must have been an arranged marriage between my grandfathers sister and her cousin. She was only 17 so her parents had to sign for her to get married. Anyways I hope some of this helps you in your search...Also last known census that I found of Tobias was 1880 and Perella Coon was living with Tobias it stated she is a granddaughter

I'm a daughter of Lloyd, parents were Clarence and Maude, his father was Isaac, then Tobias M Coon. Looks like we are tracking the same family lines. My mom and dad divorced when I was just a baby, so I never knew him. I'm wondering if there is a way to see if he remarried and had any other children, who would be my half siblings...

Thanks for any help you can give,
Linda LeCroy

I am contacting some people who may have contact information for Marietta, who would be your aunt. I believe she may still be living. She would be the only one that I know of who might be aware of any re-marriage for Lloyd.
