Notes

  • From the probate record: 19 Oct 1905 • Elba, Lapeer, Michigan, USA Mary J Elmer petitions to be made special administratrix of the estate in order to lease the farm to someone who will work it, so that she will not be compelled to stay alone Then my grandfather writes that his dad bought Grandpa Lon's farm: 1910 • Elba, Lapeer, Michigan John, Emma and Mary Jane Decker Elmer "Later when grandpa died [in 1905] [dad] bought his hundred and sold the thirty." Rial Simons, Memories, 6 My grandfather's dad, John Simons, was poisoned by bad well water and was unable to work the farm, relying on my grandfather to do the heavy work. Then, after his wife died in 1919, John Simons sold the farm and moved to Detroit for factory work.
