Looking for any relatives of the GASS / LYONS families of Macomb County. My
grandmother, Betty Ann (Lyons) Miller, is the daughter of Robert Lyons.
Robert was born in Davis, Michigan on June 3, 1902. He died on July 6, 1970.
Robert's parents were Lawson Lyons and Alice Stafford. The Staffords were
from Nebraska but, I know very little about them. Lawson's father was Elias
Lyons and Harriet Gass. Lawson Lyons was born in 1858, in Davis, Michigan.
Elias Lyons, along with two other brothers, William and Stanford, married
into the Gass family while the Gass family was still living in Greene
County, New York.
In the 1830's the Gass family moved from New York to
Macomb County, Michigan, settling in Brooklyn, (later named Davis). The
Lyons family in New York is quite huge and this relative/researcher hasn't
found much relating the three Lyons relatives with any of their New York
kin. But, I will be making trips up to Greene County this summer to go
through the cemeteries and find the missing clues.
The Gass family roots are
very strong in Macomb County and most people who have lived in Macomb for
some time have roots with the Gass family. Most of the Gass/Lyons kin are
buried in the Davis Cemetery in Davis, Michigan. Some are buried in other
various cemeteries such as Mt. Vernon and Romeo cemeteries. Robert Lyons and
his wife, Lenore (Heppner) Lyons, are buried in White Chapel Cemetery in
Royal Oak, Michigan and Alice Stafford's grave has yet to be found. She is
not buried with Lawson in Davis. Throughout this website you can find Gass
My name is Andrew Miller. I live in Fishkill, Dutchess County,
New York, which is two counties below Greene County and about 50 miles from
New York City. My grandmother has lived in Romeo, Michigan her whole life
and still resides there. I moved out here with my parents in the late
1980's. If any relative reads this, feel free to email and we will talk
about how we are related.

Yesterday I received the death certificate for my wife's aunt who has been "missing" from the family for nearly 50 years. She died 16 Nov 1996 in Warren, Macomb, Michigan, and her residence at the time was 8444 Engleman in Center Line, Michigan. At the time of her death she was Frances MALINOWSKI, a widow, born 3 Nov 1917 in Logan, UT.
The death certificate says father was Francis BERENGER, but it should be BERGENER. Mother was given as Margaret LARSON, but it should be Maggie LARSEN. As we have been searching for her for all these many years we do not know when or where she married Mr. MALINOWSKI. We also do not know his name. If there is anyone who is related to the MALINOWSKI family and can help us find out who her husband was, information of his birth and death, and information about their marriage, we would be ever so grateful to finally learn more about this woman who disappeared from our family.

My wife's Great Grandfather was George Nelson STONE, born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 13 April 1844. He married Mary S. HEWITT, b. 17 April 1847 in or around Memphis, Michigan. Six of their children were born in the Memphis area, in either Macomb or St. Clair County, which we do not know. Mary S. Hewitt was likely born in Riley Township, St. Clair County, Michigan. We have no birth records, marriage records, or death records on any of the persons mentioned. The children born there were: Richard Elmer, William Willard, George Anson, Fred Charles, Alfred James and Mary Ellen Stone. They may have left for Nebraska about 1884 as they homesteaded in Cuming County, Nebraska about that time. Death records are unlikely in Michigan, however, birth records and marriage records would be of great help. They may have married around 1863. Can anyone help us find some paper trail on these folks?

I am searching for the family of John Crawford and John M. Crawford. I believe that John, the Patriot, was the grandfather of John M. Crawford. Robert Crawford, son of John Crawford, lived in Oakland. John M. was the son of Robert Crawford and Polly Mosher/Mosier.
All of this Crawford family came from NY. John M. Crawford married Polly (Mary) Miller in Macomb 1832. Her family also came from NY. I am not sure who her parents were but believe that her father might have been F. W. Miller listed in Ray history as owning a mill.
After the death of John M. Crawford, Norman Crawford sold the Mill at Ray to the Wolcott family. Norman and his mother Mary Crawford moved to NE to live on the farm where the Wolcotts had lived. The younger son of John M. Crawford, Albert W. , had married Esther Tappan of St Clair and moved to Reynolds NE. After Albert died, Norman moved to NE and married his brothers widow, Esther.
