Greetings! Do you have more information on your ancestor? I know that one of the problems of dying in Detroit prior to 1906, death records were not required to be filed. I do believe that my great grandfather (Frederich) did have a brother by that name. One of the problems that I faced with him is that he died within 3 months after arrival in Detroit in 1892. There are no death records, even at the state level in Lansing. When my family came, they went directly to Ferdinand Ewald and lived at 250 and 252 Tillman, I am almost 100% certain that he was Frederich's brother as well. My grandfather was a builder of homes in Detroit and with family members had a residential building company. They built in the area of 24th, and 25th Streets. Boy my grandfather and Ferdinand moved to 24th Street. Other relatives lived throughout that community. I can send you all the information I have on my early ancestors in Detroit via regular e-mail. I hope we can establish a connection! Lee Ewald - w8wa@torchlake.com
