In Reply to: Florence Willett - Michigan - Wisner and Bay City by WILLIAM FRENCH of 1480

How is your search coming? My great grandmother, Minnie Willet had 3 sisiters and 3 brothers. She would have been bron about 1870. Her family had a farm near Wisner. I don’t know if one of the sisters was your relative, as I am just starting out with the Willet line. My grandfather talked about his Willet grandparents who spoke french and were catholic. I know there was a sister named Stella and I think one named Emma. and another Elizabeth brothers were Hank, Ed and Louis. Hank was “crippled” acc to my grandfather.He also mentioned a Mabel, but that doesn’t add up to 3. He didn’t know the 1st names of his grandparents as he was taken away when he was 6. He mentioned being baptized at St Elizabeth catholic church in Reese, MI. He did mention that one sister moved to California...perhaps your mom had one of the names mentioned as a middle name.
