RE: Memorial# 172013006
I found the Last Will and Testament for Ransom Hebberd Tyler naming his wife Mary Douglas Tyler and his son Ransom Frederick Tyler.
Ransom Hebberd Tyler died 21 Nov 1881.

U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885
Lucy Tyler b: abt 1820, died Aug 1869 and it states that she was a widow.

This definitely is a puzzle.

On the memorial that you created you have Ransom Fred Tyler's parents as Hibbard Tyler & Lucy Caldwell.

I'm doing research for a Tyler family member and they have Ransom's parents are Ransom Hebberd Tyler & Mary E. (nee: Douglas) Tyler.

Can you clear this up for me?

The office at Holy Cross is closed so you will have to get the information by calling (734-285-2155) or going to Our Lady of Hope. They have all the records for Holy Cross.

ethel churchill
Hi William. i've sent you an edit for Ethel's name. Her marriage to Harold was the second for both of them. She was married to Alfred Knop from 1914 thru 1939. They had two children: Irvin A. in 1915 and Elaine M. in 1924 in Detroit. She married Harold Alfred Duane Churchill one month after her divorce was finalized. He died Oct. 8, 1950 in Detroit but I have not been able to find his grave. He was born June 1 or 5, 1901 in Michigan - I found both dates. I am a distant in-law thru Knop.

Thanks for you help in adding a generation to the Bond family and helping me link generations. I appreciate your good detective work.

I am not related but am doing this for a family friend. It is such a fun hobby and you meet the nicest folks.

RE: Cortese
Yes, it looks like I am related to this Cortese line. Still trying to gather further information on all of them.
I found "the cousin", Josephine Cortese, 1930 census as "Inmate at House of Good Shepard, Detroit, Michigan"...strange... looks like a good mystery!!!
