Readers Notes on Cheboygan Families

Brief notes that may or may not have a contact. If you would like to add a note about a family, please contact me.

CARR, CLARK - You have listed Joseph Carr, his wife Mary E., and their son Herbert. They had an older son, Samuel, born in 1887. They migrated in the late 1880s to Cheboygan from Ontario, Grey Co. You might also like knowing that the wife of David Clark, Matilda, was Mary's sister. Jeff Anderson



MAGUIRE, McGUIRE - Ferguson McGuire should also show the name MAGUIRE. My wife is his granddaughter. Her mother always spelled her name MAGUIRE. Other records confirm this, even though several records contain the McGUIRE spelling. Ferguson had a couple of visits to court in which MAGUIRE is used. His father's name was Thompson MAGUIRE. You have a cemetery record of a Thomas McGUIRE which is tantalizingly close. If there are other notes to relate Thomas to Ferguson, such as being buried in adjacent graves, it might be well to add this distinction to your notes. Stanley A.

TERRIEN, TERRIN, FERRIEN, MORRISETTE, LUSSIER, KNIFFEN, GUYEN, RIVER, PARROW - Adelia Terrin is Adelia Terrien and the daughter of Octave Terrien, Sr. and Caroline Morrisette. She was born 13 Jul 1867. Some sources say she was born in Carp Lake, Emmet Co., Michigan, but I suspect that she was born in Canada, probably Quebec. Wallace McLaurey may have been born in New York state. Octave Terrien and Matilda are my great grandparents, Albert V. is my great uncle. Octave Terrien, Sr. was born in 1835 in Quebec, Canada. His parents were Josephete Lussier and Joseph Terrien. Octave, Sr. married Caroline Morrisette 10 Nov 1856 in the parish of Sainte-Cecile, Milton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Octave, Jr. was born 4 Sep 1857 in Quebec, Canada. The family immigrated to the Cheboygan County area before 1870. They are in the 1870 census in Inverness Township. Their name is listed in the index as Ferrien (it was mis- transcribed, the f is a t). The quality of the image is very poor and hard to read. In the census there are five daughters and one son, Octave.
