Re: STAHLBUSCH / STAHLBUSH According to the 1900,1910 and 1920 censuses, Charles STAHLBUSCH and his wife, Anna E. (maiden name unknown) were residents of Port Huron, St. Clair County. Charles was born Dec 1853, married in 1884 Anna who was born Jan 1859. They had three children: Verna M., born Apr 1889; Bertha born Apr 1891; and Ernest H. born July 1899.

ADIX, CARMAN, LACY posted by Matthew Carman on Sunday, March 16, 1997
I am looking for information on my CARMAN family history. My Great Grandfather, George Weson CARMAN, came to Memphis, Michigan with his parents Joseph Gardiner CARMAN and Susan Louisa (Gould) CARMAN in about 1850. His grandfather (Joseph) and aunt (Lydia Dudley) came too. George married in NY in 1876 to Harriet LACY. He started the Marine Savings Bank in Marine City with a Mr. Porter in about 1890. The bank is still there as a Michigan National Bank. George and Harriet had 8 children, but only 3 have descendants living today. His oldest son was John Lacy CARMAN , born 3 July 1885 and died 30 August, 1934. He took over the bank when his father, George W. CARMAN died on 9, November 1918. John Lacy CARMAN married Hazel ADIX of Detroit (born in Minnesota). I am also looking for information on her ADIX family too. When John Lacy Carman (my grandfather) died in 1934, non of his sons were old enough to take over working at the bank, so that was the end of the CARMAN family in banking. John and Hazel had three children: Joseph Adix CARMAN, Robert Leete CARMAN, and Philip Sackett CARMAN. Philip Sackett CARMAN was my father. If you know of any information or ideas for sources of research, please let me know.
