Fron the previous thread - "Looking for information on James Currie. Born in Tardree, Co Antrim. Married a lady called Betty Lived in Grosse point Michigan. Also his sister Agnes Currie who married William Crothers. Had several children Mary, Maggie, Aggie, Martha, Annie & Sarah and some that I don't know their names"

Could this possibly be Mary Elizabeth Crother/Hall who married George H Hall - Mrs G H Hall Detroit on the Obituary for Margaret Kenney ?

If those 2 possibilities are correct, then I would presume that the Obituary gave the sisters in age order unless of course you have written them down differently.

i.e Mary Elizabeth Crother/Hall, Agnes Jane Crother/McLennan, Sarah/Sadie Crother Millar and then Ellen Crother/Sullivan   ???  Just a thought  ;)

Hello Amanda,

A few of the deaths for the family - Sarah Millar, Ellen and Francis Sullivan were at Grosse Pointe.

The link below is for the Grosse Ponte Public Library which has a "Ask A Librarian" link and could be worth an e-mail to see if you could locate the Obituaries which may give further info on the family.

Regards
Sandra

Hi.   Several Crothers are located in Campbellford, Ontario.   My mother's paternal side (Free) was from Carnew, Wicklow, Ireland and moved directly from there to Campbellford  not too many generations ago.   One of the Free family (maybe more) married Crothers.
