This family is so difficult! It twists and turns and has alias all over. And then documents are there and then are gone... but now it comes down to a merge that won't take and two identities that wouldn't accept the husband(s).
There is Mary Louise Einboden born to Albert Jame Einboden and Mary Ann Dance.
In the 1900 census, She is listed as Mary with her parents in Detroit, Michigan, with a sister Louise and a sister Viola. They are all using the name Wilson, an alias, as the parents have yet to be found married.
There are marriages for a Mae E Einboden and a Louise Einboden that everyone claims to be the same. She is called by her family as May. Known as May. But on her marriage records she does not list herself as May or Mae. She is married to a George L Crooks, and as of today, he's not coming up or isn't listed on Wikitree anymore that I can find as of tonight.
Okay, so what I found years ago was taken down and now is available again and I am taking what I found and trying to source it. It again is becoming a problem.
My Great Grandfather is....
Albert James Enboden. He married an Emily Reevely. There are no children on record for them. Emily takes off to the states, the 1900 census showed her in Indiana as Emily Einboden and an infant daughter Louise Einboden. This census is not showing up on Ancestry nor Family search any longer and needs to be physically pulled and looked at. I have searched all of Emily's marriages and census trying to figure this out. Her daughter changes names numerous times.
Albert has a brother Peter Einboden who marries Mary Ann Dance. Albert is a witness at this marriage. Records seem to indicated they DID NOT have any children together. Mary Ann leaves the country too, with Albert James Einboden and they assume the alias Wilson. There has not been a marriage found for them, but there has been a divorce found. Mary divorces James Albert Wilson in Wayne county, Michigan, and she uses the initial marriage date between she and Peter plus 1 day. There is a birth record between Albert Einboden and Mary Ann Dance for Mary Louise Einboden. In the 1900 census, there are three daughters with James A and Mary Ann, Louise, May and Viola. There is a birth record for Viola, my great grandmother in Michigan to James A Wilson and Mary A Dance. There are death records for James A Wilson and Mary Ann Wilson in Michigan. James lists his mother as Hannah Martin, who is the wife of Johann Peter Einboden. Mary Ann's maiden name is listed as Dance and Richard Dance III comes and arranges her burial.
There is a sister, Phoebe Einboden, who marries Richard Dance, Mary Ann's brother.
The Dance family originates in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Richard Dance marries a Elizabeth Switzer a spinster. He is a widower. They are the parents of Richard Dance II who's marriage(s) need figured out. There's listings in marriage records for Richard and Mary Ann Dance as Sarah. And marriage records for an Elizabeth Dance or Dauncy, daughter of Patrick....
The big issues and the head ache is the Louise's.
If you follow Emily Reevely Einboden and her three marriages after Albert Einboden; her daughter's name changes in each of her marriage records.
I would appreciate some assistance with this family. It's causing confusion and discrepancy. I have used the certain and uncertain and other used names on Wikitree, but there doesn't seem to have the same on familysearch. I am trying to stick to the actual records available and when uncertain have made a new parent for each child. I figure that those being married know their own names and parents. So if they don't match the family tree, I make a new person. I have learned to use the Wikitree option of do not show this relationship as married in each others profile, to assist in cutting the confusion. Today, the confusion has gone to overload. An additional issue is that some of this family is LDS and the changes is making a mess of their church records and family. I can understand the upset. An option that was used a few years ago, before I got on Wikitree is that they made up two different profiles for Albert James Einboden and James Albert Wilson. But the problem is, that when taking a dna test, then we don't have a tree. I had this tree on ancestry, set on private and records, people where deleted from it. I had it saved elsewhere.
If any of you pros would give this tree a look see, I would appreciate it. I'm sure all of us involved would. It's not a dispute, just a confusion.
Another match that I came across is that there is a possible match with another Einboden sister. Catherine who married Samuel Young. One of her children married George L Crooks, and then divorced him, then he married one of Albert's daughters. This too would be putting a mess in the LDS tree.
This is one HOT MESS.
I do seem to notice that records that were blacked out, record disappearances are slowly coming back. I have noticed too that indexes have changed names. It's only when I can look at the actual documents that I can be certain now. Which is what I had done with Ancestry. But I made a huge mistake. I didn't download all of them. Many I found on the state websites. You can see the actual documents.
Please anyone, help clarify this. Instead of finding a "family" I'm ticking people off. I now but Einboden 13 and Einboden 14 no longer exist on Wikitree. So stuff is disappearing again before my eyes? :(
