- HARRINGTON, MONAGHAN-HARRINGTON posted by Sheila Carlson on Sunday, May 4, 1997
HARRINGTON - Looking for information on George HARRINGTON and Mary MONAGHAN-HARRINGTON. They appear on the St. Clair Co., MI 1870 census in Ft. Gratiot along with two children, Freddie, age 5, and Georgie, age 4/12. George and Mary were married in Port Huron, Grace Church on December 22, 1868. Both children died young and are buried in Hillsdale Cem. I would like to confirm whether or not George is a son of Uriah HARRINGTON or perhaps Patrick HARRINGTON. Both Uriah and Patrick are shown in Clyde Twp. of St. Clair Co. Uriah is also shown on the 1860 census in Worth Twp., Sanilac Co. I believe George may have been married once before he married Mary. Any information on this Harrington group greatly appreciated.

- FACER, HORNBY posted by Cindy Scherwinski on Monday, May 5, 1997
FACER - HORNBY. Are we related? Looking for information on William FACER and his wife Elizabeth HORNBY. William born about 1835 in Port Huron he died in northern Wisconsin 10 Jul 1907. At the time of his death he was deaf but unsure if this was a life long condition. No information on Elizabeth HORNBY. She may have been born in England. William and Elizabeth relocated to Aniwa, Shawano, Wisconsin prior to 1875 but do not know exactly when this occured or why. William and Elizabeth had four known children; two did not survive infancy but the two that did were Frances Dazie FACER born 8 Feb 1875 in Port Huron and Burton Wellington FACER 8 Aug 1878 Port Huron. Letters written to William FACER lead me to believe his father's name was Louis FACER and they may have owned a hotel in the Port Huron area. A funeral notice (date unclear - 1868?) for another William FACER (an uncle?) mentions "Hamer Burial Ground". Another notice announces that Benjamin FACER was admitted as a member of the Sons of Temperance on 8 Oct 1847 "Lafayette Division No. 13." located in Port Huron. May be you can help me find the pieces to this puzzle. Thank you.

BELL (b: 10 Jun 1900 in Mulliken, MI; d: Jul 13, 1970 in Flint) abt 1919-20, they lived in Flint. Joseph was a toolmaker in the auto factory. Arthur W. GARNER, (b: abt 1899, d: unk). Spouse unk. 5 daughters: Carol (married: Ersal (sp), aka: Ert, Van Buskirk, son: Steve Van Buskirk?), Pat, Connie, Virgina, Barbara.

Luke had sporadic service in the Marine Corp Reserve between WWI and WWII. Luke joined the army as an MP and had service in Australia abt 1943. Lena is thought to be one of the first, if not the first, woman in St. Clair Co. to join the WAAC abt 1943-1944. She had service in WWII in the South Pacific. Lena had one still born bith (abt 1950), otherwise no children. Luke worked for Grand Trunk Railroad where he was captain of the railroad police force. They owned a home on the Black River. Samuel J.

Samuel enlisted in 125th Infantry Regiment (Port Huron) on 1 Oct 28. Samuel and Thetta divorced abt 1938. His regiment was inducted into federal service on Oct 15, 1940. The regiment travelled through U.S. until service was seen in the South Pacific. Samuel was discharged from service on 1 Sep 1945, he attained the rank of Major. He met an army nurse by the name of Maxine W. while in California. They eventually married and he moved to CA. Sometime along the way, Samuel had his two daughters (Donna and Joan) with him in CA. This family had very strong ties to St. Catharines, ON. They spent many summers there through at least 1950. Many of Arthur and Ellen's descendents probably still live in the Port Huron area. Someone may have the family bible, and other belongings. I would appreciate any contact.
