Era/Ella Louella Hoard b. 1880 - St. Joseph County
Posted by: Dee Sager (ID *****6595) Date: February 12, 2014 at 12:59:31

I tried to post a query at St. Joseph County but was not allowed access.

Era/Ella Hoard was born 6 August 1880. Per census records, her family was in Sherman Township, St. Joseph County in June 1880. Per later Kansas State census as an adult, she was born in St. Joseph County. All other records show Michigan as birth place.

My problem is this: St. Joseph County Clerk states she cannot find a birth record for Era/Ella in 1880 nor 1881. I do not wish to pay the State of Michigan a non-refundable $34 to do a search nor to pay Vital Records $54 to do a search, if this record is not on file. Do other options exist? If so, what?

Any help is greatly appreciated. This lady is my spouse's grandmother.
