Walker Family/Root Family

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for the Walker family that might have been in Clarence, Calhoun Co. MI in 1880-1895. Charles P. Walker was born in July 1841 in Pleasant, Knox Co. OH and Mary M. Root was born in Sept 1857 in MI. Their daughter, Mable Theresa Walker was born on 5 Aug 1881 in Clarence, Calhoun Co. MI and died 26 Aug 1931 in Irma, Albert, Canada, she was the wife of my great grandfather William Herbert Morse. The Walker family also had a son born to them, Jesse, who was born 31 July 1896 (place unknown right now)and died on 15 Feb 1994 Allen Park, Wayne Co. MI. In the 1900 census they were all living in Travers City, Grand Travers Co. MI with the following persons: "Herbert", Mable, Milo (son born 1899-my grandfather), Walker, Charles, Mary and Jesse. By 1910 there is no trace of these people in Travers City, MI. Herbert and Mable went to Canada to live and they thought that they could do better there. Jesse, from what my father tells me lived in Rose City, Ogemaw Co. MI for years on the homestead there where his parents lived. So I find it kind of hard to believe the death index information knowing that information too.
I don't know when or where Charles and Mary died or were buried and I don't know anything about Jesse either so if anyone can tell me anything about this family I would appreciate it. I can't even tell you who Mary M. Roots' parents were right now.

Thanks in advance,

Melody
