BEAN, PROWELL, VINCENTI, WAGNER posted by Jacqueline Wagner on Saturday, June 21, 1997
I am looking for informatin about my grandmother. She used many names in her lifetime. The ones that I know of are Elizabeth WAGNER, Betty WAGNER, Betty PROWELL, Elizabeth VINCENTI. I know some of her family is named BEAN and live in the area around Royal Oak, Michigan. She may have had a twin sister. I believe she also had a daughter named Alvira. Alvira may have changed her name to Hazel, possibly sometime in the 1930's. I believe Hazel is my Mother and I would like to know about her. I think my best bet to try and locate Hazel is through any birth records of children born to Elizateth. Any info would be most welcome. .

WHITMAN, WIBERT posted by Lee M. Wibert on Monday, June 23, 1997
I have been trying to trace my branch of the &Quot;WIBERT&Quot; family past my grandfather to no avail. My grandfather was Sylvanius Malcomb WIBERT, born 10/28/1848 or 1851, died 7/15/1915. My grandmother was May A. WHITMAN, born 5/26/1861, died 1901. (I wasn't born until 1936, when my father was 50 years old.) I don't know the names of my great- grandparents and haven't any information about them. They would have lived in NY, OH, or MI. I'd appreciate any information anyone may have. Also, my father, Chester Arthur Wibert looked for years for a sister that there father, Sylvanius kicked out of the house. She was 16 at the time, unwed and pregnant. I don't remember her name. And Sylvanius tore her name and date of birth out of the family bible, so maybe I never knew it to begin with. I do remember my dad telling me the story and I know he looked for her. So naturally I have wondered as he did, what became of her and the baby. If anyone has any knowledge of what happened to her, please email me. Syvanius' other children were: Alpha H. Wibert, Levi R. Wibert, Eva May Wibert, Malcolm H. Wibert, Charley A. Wibert, and Hazel A. Wibert (who died at age 2).

Trying to locate marriage of William David NEWMAN to Minnie MCCANN between 1910 and 1915. Their first surviving son, William D. Jr. was born 1918 in Highland Park, Wayne Co., Mi., but two preceding children had died in infancy. William D. NEWMAN Sr. died in 1925 in Pontiac, Oakland Co. at aged 35, a foreman with Fisher Body.
