Jerimiah McSweeney married Nellie Ring, both from Ireland. They had a son named Eugene Owen McSweeney. Eugene, born abt 1832 married Mary Green, born abt 1830. The 1880 census showed they had 9 children, however, only 2 were living at the time of the census. They immigrated to the U.S. in 1877 possibly through NY then Canada. They ended up in Sterlingville Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. The two children still living in 1880 were James and John. James' family kept the Mc on McSweeney. John's descendants dropped the Mc. Both brothers started families of their own and became farmers.

I'd like to do more research in Ireland, however, I am not completely clear on when exactly they left Ireland and from which County. If you have any information on this family, please contact me.

Her parents are listed as William John Irvine and Matilda LaBertis on her Social Security application. However, on her birth certificate, his grandmother is listed as Mariel Olive Irwin born to William Irwin of Michigan and Metalla Irwin of Canada. My husband was told that his grandmother was 1/2 Potawatomi, however we do not know if she was registered to any tribe or not.

Any information on the above will be appreciated and send your e-mail to

BLAKELY, CAMPBELL, SMITH;
I am searching for a family of Smiths that moved from Grey County, in Ontario, Canada and went to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan sometime in the late 1800's. The head of the Smith family was Robert Blakely Smith the eldest son of a family of ten children who was born about 1848 in Madoc, Ontario. His second name Blakely was his mother's maiden name. His father was Robert Smith and his mother was Elizabeth Sarah Blakely who also were originally from Madoc in the county of Hastings. His parent�s (Robert Smith and Elizabeth Sarah Blakely) farm was along the Old Mail Road about 1.5 miles from Griersville. The Old Mail Road went from Griersville in St. Vincent Township to Heathcote in Euphrasia township in Grey County. Robert Blakely Smith�s father�s father and mother (his grandparents ) were Joseph and Margaret Smith who lived in Euphrasia township in Grey County (Lot 30 Concession 3) had lived near Madoc Ontario in Hastings County before moving to Euphrasia Township in Grey County. Their farm was at Lot 30 Concession 3 about 2 miles along the Old Mail in Euphrasia township.

I have been in contact with descendants from 9 of the ten children except for Robert Blakely Smith's family who left the area of Grey County about 1885 to 1890 and went to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. None of these families kept in touch with this family that left for Sault Ste. Marie and I have no idea where his descendants are now or ended up.

Robert Blakely Smith was married about 1880 to Sarah Ann Campbell from Euphrasia Township, Grey County, in Ontario Canada. She was the daughter of John Campbell. Their first child was named Robert John James Smith who was born April 9th, 1883 in Euphrasia Township, in the county of Grey and his birth was registered July 14, 1883.

My grandmother told me she thought that this family had left the area and gone to Sault Ste. Marie and thought they had four sons. Well to my surprise she could not have been more right about where this family had moved to except I was thinking of Sault Ste. Marie in Canada not in United States. I hadn't given it a thought that it was United States. As you see she was right on when it came to where they had moved too. She may be right about the four sons too. I don't know. Surprisingly this was about her husband's family and not her own. She was very sharp in memory well into her nineties and must have a keen interest in her husband�s family as much as she did in her own for to have known and retained this information.

This fact was confirmed when I recently reviewed some land registry documents which I had in my possession for many years ( twenty some years I think ) and realized the wealth of information that was in them. They confirmed that documents that I had in regards to a land registry transaction were served upon this family and other family members in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.

The documents show that they were served on a Robert B. Smith, a John Campbell, ( who I believe is his father_in_law ), a James B Campbell ( I believe a brother to his wife Sarah Ann Campbell and therefore his brother-in-law ), and a Mary Smith ( who I believe was Robert Blakely Smith�s aunt ). I had been trying to locate this aunt of his in Grey County and wondered why I could not find there. It now became evident she too must have left the area with her nephew�s family.

The documents states:

In the Matter of certain proceedings under power of sale and in the matter of the north half of Lot No. 30 in the third concession of the township Euphrasia in the county of Grey.

I John F. Tumble(?) of the town of Sault St. Marie, in the District of Algoma, Barrister_at_law. do solemnly declare that I did on the 15th day of October 1890 personally serve Robert B. Smith, Mary Smith wife the said Robert B. Smith (this would not be his wife but his aunt I believe) and John Campbell named in the notice of sale Exhibit "A" each with a line (?) copy of the notice of Exercising Power of Sale ????? ????? and marked Exhibit "A" by delivering such copies to and leaving the same with them the said Robert B Smith, Mary Smith and John Campbell at the town of Sault Ste. Marie in the state of Michigan and that I did also at the same time personally serve James B Campbell named in the Power of Sale Exhibit "A" with a line (?) copy of the said notice of Exercising Power of Sale before (?) accused (?) by delivery such copy to and leaving the same with John Campbell the father of the said James B. Campbell at the usual residence or place of abode of him the said James B Campbell at the town of Sault Ste. Marie in the state of Michigan.

And I make this solemn Declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true and by virtue of the Act respecting extra_judicial oaths. Declared before me the town of ? in the District of ? this 16th day of October A.D. 1890.

This is all the information that I know about this family. I am hoping to hear from someone about this long lost family that emigrated to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan sometime in the late 1800s ( about 1885 to 1890 ) from where the trail grows cold and I don't have clue were to start searching.

Jason Carpenter was one of the first employees at Wilwin. He worked on the R.R. grade during the summer of 1915, then helped in the construction of the mill. That finished, he operated the locomotive, �Little old 100� for some time; later, he was night watchman, and later still, engineer in charge of all operating mill machinery.

Her parents are listed as William John Irvine and Matilda LaBertis on her Social Security application. However, on her birth certificate, his grandmother is listed as Mariel Olive Irwin born to William Irwin of Michigan and Metalla Irwin of Canada. My husband was told that his grandmother was 1/2 Potawatomi, however we do not know if she was registered to any tribe or not.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance that you could lend me in our quest to find his ancestors, or at least point me in the right direction. Thanks!

LINTALA; Väinö Lintala
John (Johan) Lintala left Finland in 1899 with his mother. The family (minus John) is recorded in the 1920 census for Kinross. A newspaper clipping from 2 May 1905 states the following:

2 May 1905, Tuesday
Miss Maggie Waltz, accompanied by a large party of Finnish people from all over the copper country, left yesterday morning for Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, and [from] there will go to Drummond Island, where they expect to start a Finnish colony, should the place prove suitable. The party will stake out claims of 160 acres each, and will return there in 6 months to take up residence permanently.

Here is what is known about this family:

Matt Lintala, Sr. came alone to the US in 1886. Lisa Lintala came to Sault Ste Marie (MI) with John in 1899 and to the US via New York with Matt, Jr. in 1900. Matt Sr., Lisa and John are believed to have come to Kinross or Sault Ste Marie via Montreal or Quebec. The entire family moved to New York between 1917-1927, first Matt Lintala Sr., then Matt Jr. Variations of the surname vary but include the following: Lintal, Lintala, Lindala, and Lindale.

I am looking primarily for information on John (b. 5 Dec 1885 Finland) Lintala, since I already have information on other members of this family. I believe he may have died in Kinross before the family relocated to New York. A daughter of Matt Jr (Lintala, Baby) is buried in the Lakeside Cemetery in Kinross. In the 1920 Census, Matt Jr. (as Matt Lindale) is listed in Kinross while Matt Sr. (as Matt Lintal) is residing in Newfield, Tompkins County, New York.

If someone can do lookups on the Lintala family for me in Kinross or at the County Clerk's office, I will do reciprocal lookups on their family in the 1920 and 1930 census. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Jerimiah McSweeney married Nellie Ring, both from Ireland. They had a son named Eugene Owen McSweeney. Eugene, born abt 1832 married Mary Green, born abt 1830. The 1880 census showed they had 9 children, however, only 2 were living at the time of the census. They immigrated to the U.S. in 1877 possibly through NY then Canada. They ended up in Sterlingville Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. The two children still living in 1880 were James and John. James' family kept the Mc on McSweeney. John's descendants dropped the Mc. Both brothers started families of their own and became farmers.

I'd like to do more research in Ireland, however, I am not completely clear on when exactly they left Ireland and from which County. If you have any information on this family, please contact me.

I have other completed family trees for the following surnames O'Rourke, Goudreau, Morrow, Arnott, Gray, Heikkala and Dupras.

The M�n�clier family that went to Sault Ste-Marie was a M�tis family of French Canadian and Ojibwe blood. They left Qu�bec for Michigan between 1820 and 1830. Some were still there in 1900 (Miniclier was the preferred spelling in America).

1. Louis & Marie Anne (Piquet) M�n�clier, he French Canadian "voyaguer" and she a "native," had about seven children, probably in Canada, ties to Oka and Vaudreuil in SW Qu�bec:

2. Josephte b. ~1800 m. Louis deLANGLADE (probably stayed in Oka area, he a "savage")

2. Jeanne b. ~1804 m. Fran�ois GURNOE

2. Jean Baptiste b. 1809 Oka

2. Nicolas b. 1816 Oka m. Sophia PICARD (to Houghton County, MI)

2. Charles b. ~1820 not married

2. Marianne b. ~1824 (m. Fran�ois Dufault?)

From Joseph there are eight children born:

3. Mary Ann ? b. ~1816 by Lisette (Joseph is recorded as the father, but he would have been VERY young, but there wasn't another Joseph Meneclier in the area, and he was the oldest son.)

3. William b. ~1829

3. Jane Genevieve b. ~1832 m. Thomas PRIOR

3. Louis b. ~1834 m. Zoe BONNEAU

3. Judy b. ~1840

That finished, he operated the locomotive, �Little old 100� for some time; later, he was night watchman, and later still, engineer in charge of all operating mill machinery.

SMITH; Sarah LaFranzo
Gilbert and Jessie Smith immigrated from Scotland via Canada about 1894. Lived Rudyard/Kinross area with descendants in Sault Ste Marie.

SMITH, WHARFIELD; Peggy Stempfly

Researching the James J. and Lettie (Wharfield) Smith family who lived a number of years in Chippewa County in the early 1900's. Their children were Maude L., Hubert G., Cleo P., Eva M., Everett G., Henry Kirk, and Hattie. Hattie Smith married a man named Percy Hugh Jordan and they also lived for quite sometime in Sault Ste. Marie.

SMITH, BLAKELY, CAMPBELL; Ralph Smith
I am searching for a family of Smiths that moved from Grey County, in Ontario, Canada and went to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan sometime in the late 1800's. The head of the Smith family was Robert Blakely Smith the eldest son of a family of ten children who was born about 1848 in Madoc, Ontario. His second name Blakely was his mother's maiden name. His father was Robert Smith and his mother was Elizabeth Sarah Blakely who also were originally from Madoc in the county of Hastings. His parent�s (Robert Smith and Elizabeth Sarah Blakely) farm was along the Old Mail Road about 1.5 miles from Griersville. The Old Mail Road went from Griersville in St. Vincent Township to Heathcote in Euphrasia township in Grey County. Robert Blakely Smith�s father�s father and mother (his grandparents ) were Joseph and Margaret Smith who lived in Euphrasia township in Grey County (Lot 30 Concession 3) had lived near Madoc Ontario in Hastings County before moving to Euphrasia Township in Grey County. Their farm was at Lot 30 Concession 3 about 2 miles along the Old Mail in Euphrasia township.

I have been in contact with descendants from 9 of the ten children except for Robert Blakely Smith's family who left the area of Grey County about 1885 to 1890 and went to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. None of these families kept in touch with this family that left for Sault Ste. Marie and I have no idea where his descendants are now or ended up.

Robert Blakely Smith was married about 1880 to Sarah Ann Campbell from Euphrasia Township, Grey County, in Ontario Canada. She was the daughter of John Campbell. Their first child was named Robert John James Smith who was born April 9th, 1883 in Euphrasia Township, in the county of Grey and his birth was registered July 14, 1883.

My grandmother told me she thought that this family had left the area and gone to Sault Ste. Marie and thought they had four sons. Well to my surprise she could not have been more right about where this family had moved to except I was thinking of Sault Ste. Marie in Canada not in United States. I hadn't given it a thought that it was United States. As you see she was right on when it came to where they had moved too. She may be right about the four sons too. I don't know. Surprisingly this was about her husband's family and not her own. She was very sharp in memory well into her nineties and must have a keen interest in her husband�s family as much as she did in her own for to have known and retained this information.

This fact was confirmed when I recently reviewed some land registry documents which I had in my possession for many years ( twenty some years I think ) and realized the wealth of information that was in them. They confirmed that documents that I had in regards to a land registry transaction were served upon this family and other family members in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.

The documents show that they were served on a Robert B. Smith, a John Campbell, ( who I believe is his father_in_law ), a James B Campbell ( I believe a brother to his wife Sarah Ann Campbell and therefore his brother-in-law ), and a Mary Smith ( who I believe was Robert Blakely Smith�s aunt ). I had been trying to locate this aunt of his in Grey County and wondered why I could not find there. It now became evident she too must have left the area with her nephew�s family.

The documents states:

In the Matter of certain proceedings under power of sale and in the matter of the north half of Lot No. 30 in the third concession of the township Euphrasia in the county of Grey.

I John F. Tumble(?) of the town of Sault St. Marie, in the District of Algoma, Barrister_at_law. do solemnly declare that I did on the 15th day of October 1890 personally serve Robert B. Smith, Mary Smith wife the said Robert B. Smith (this would not be his wife but his aunt I believe) and John Campbell named in the notice of sale Exhibit "A" each with a line (?) copy of the notice of Exercising Power of Sale ????? ????? and marked Exhibit "A" by delivering such copies to and leaving the same with them the said Robert B Smith, Mary Smith and John Campbell at the town of Sault Ste. Marie in the state of Michigan and that I did also at the same time personally serve James B Campbell named in the Power of Sale Exhibit "A" with a line (?) copy of the said notice of Exercising Power of Sale before (?) accused (?) by delivery such copy to and leaving the same with John Campbell the father of the said James B. Campbell at the usual residence or place of abode of him the said James B Campbell at the town of Sault Ste. Marie in the state of Michigan.

And I make this solemn Declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true and by virtue of the Act respecting extra_judicial oaths. Declared before me the town of ? in the District of ? this 16th day of October A.D. 1890.

This is all the information that I know about this family. I am hoping to hear from someone about this long lost family that emigrated to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan sometime in the late 1800s ( about 1885 to 1890 ) from where the trail grows cold and I don't have clue were to start searching.

<http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/w/e/Aaron-P-Sweeney/index.html?Welcome=1078923756>

Jerimiah McSweeney married Nellie Ring, both from Ireland. They had a son named Eugene Owen McSweeney. Eugene, born abt 1832 married Mary Green, born abt 1830. The 1880 census showed they had 9 children, however, only 2 were living at the time of the census. They immigrated to the U.S. in 1877 possibly through NY then Canada. They ended up in Sterlingville Michigan, in the Upper Peninsula. The two children still living in 1880 were James and John. James' family kept the Mc on McSweeney. John's descendants dropped the Mc. Both brothers started families of their own and became farmers.

I'd like to do more research in Ireland, however, I am not completely clear on when exactly they left Ireland and from which County. If you have any information on this family, please contact me.

I have other completed family trees for the following surnames O'Rourke, Goudreau, Morrow, Arnott, Gray, Heikkala and Dupras.
