Hi Patricia,

Thanks for giving me another piece of the puzzle! Yes I have Lawrence Rademacher (11-23-1872 to 12-29-1928) and Louisa Schneider (4-5-1872 to 1-13-1960). They were married June 9, 1896 in Beal City, Isabella County, MI. However they do not appear on the census there until 1910. Family lore says they moved to Beal City in 1905 or 1906 from Portland, MI. This didn’t make sense to me until your post. I’ll bet they got married in Beal City because that is where Louisa’s family lived, and then they lived in Eagle Township, Clinton County, MI. That area is probably close enough to Ionia County to be considered “coming from Portland.” Lawrence grew up in Westphalia Township, the next township north of Eagle.
