I am searching for people related to Kenneth Bates of Iosco county,Michigan. I started my family tree,with the information I have. I will add more when I get it. He has brothers that live in Ogemaw,and Iosco counties. Clifford,Alvin,Donald,Russell.
Here is the info I have: "Ducky" Drake fathered two sons within months of each other. One of these children was my grandfather who was born in October 1928 in Oceana County, MI. (His birth cert lists his father as unknown, but this is the info he got from his mother.) The other was Kenneth Drake. Kenneth attended school with my grandmother either in Grand Rapids or the St Joe area. Shortly (months? years?) after my grandfather was born, "Ducky" was killed in a motorcycle accident. Now you know as much as I do.
If you have any information that could help me trace my ancestry, I would appreciate it.
I have been having a hard time getting any kind of information out of my family on my mother's side. I am looking for people related to Bernard Harley Simons and Ida Belle Ketchum Simons. I know that Bernard was born in washington state and that Ida was born in Michigan. i havent had any luck finding anything other date of birth and death. Nothing else. Please if you know anything please let me know...I am running into walls and it sucks.
Thanks so much
