More Moore Connections
I'm just sharing additional information at this point. If I help even one family member who stumbles on these details, I will be happy.

No need to transfer any records, unless you later find that you don't have a connection. Then I'd love to have the records that are yours.

Carl E Moore # 117498108
My 1st cousin 2x removed
Birth 16 DEC 1907 in Sanilac County, Michigan
Death 18 JAN 1985 in Sanilac County, Michigan

He is the son of Robert L. Moore #80583448 and Berdie Mae Evans #80583486.

Robert and Berdie had six children, including Carl. His siblings are as follows:

•Verna May Moore 1906 – 1906
•Earl E Moore 1908 –
•Genevieve Mae Moore 1910 – 1970
•Jannie Moore 1911 –
•Bernice C Moore 1917 – 1996

Robert L. Moore #80583448 is the son of Albert E Moore #77870381 and Rossetta Harris Moore #77870351.

I'm determined to connect all the Moore family in Downing, and throughout Sanilac.

Thanks so much for all you do to assist others in their journey to discover where they came from too!

RE: Crandell Vincent Doane
I was actually just a wee bit confused about the Hulslander family. I do believe most of them are buried in the Greenwood Cemetery. I am also related to the Stoutenburgs.

Earl R Stoutenberg is my 1st cousin 2x removed
Birth 28 Sep 1896 in Michigan # 92263111

Emma Stoutenburg is his wife. # 91769735

I just added a Neva Miller, who is said to be buried in Downing. Her obit is on her memorial.

Good luck with the new grand daughter. I had two earlier this year, just a month apart. Thanks again for all you do!

RE: Crandell Vincent Doane
I am thrilled you are able to do what you do there in the area. If you notice my Hulslander graves in Downing Cemetery aren't so great. My father took them at some point. I am assuming during a visit for a Van Sickle reunion. I'd love to have some nice ones, if you are ever up for that sort of thing.

I'd also love to have a photo of the farm where my grandmother Iva Irene Van Sickle lived with her last husband, Delbert Phillips. I'll email you the address. You can let me know what you think.

Thanks again, for everything.

Thanks so much for giving me a little bit of fun connecting all the pieces. I love when I can do it.

Crandell Vincent Doane
Crandell Vincent Doane is my 1st cousin 2x removed. He married Florence M Scarborough 1892 – 1981.

They had five children (who are my 2nd cousins 1x removed):

1.) Lucille J Doane 1915 – 1947

2.) Hazel Fern Doane 1917 – 1994

3.) Wylda Rosalie Doane 1919 – 2001

4.) Dorene June Doane Closs 1923 – 1983

5.) Vaughn C. Doane 1928 – 2011

I think this wraps up my connection. I hope all this information is helpful to you. Are you related? If not, would you transfer any of the named records you may have to me?
