Searching for any information on a Helen C. O'Sullivan, born 1835, died 1914. Not sure where. Believe she must have had a son Mortimer. Have evidence of his having been in Hesperia in early 1900's. Some how there is a tie in to my Cameron family. Think maybe the "C" in her middle name may have been Cameron. This all the info that I have. My great grandfather Boyd Cameron purchased a monument for her and Mortimer. They are buried in Houghton, Michigan. Why would he spend $135.00 for a cemetery monument if they weren't related? Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.

Are there any records available that tells what happened to George (date of marriage, death, buried where ) or marriage records of his daughters. I would appreciate knowing about any other Spinks that may have resided in Newago. Thanks
