I'm wondering if anyone could tell me where to search for information about a capsized boat and drowning that happened in September of 1857 near St. Joseph. My ancestor Andries Steketee drowned in his capsized boat along with his two sons. I don't have any other information, but thought there might have been an article about it in the newspaper of the time. Andries Steketee was from Holland, Michigan. His wife's maiden name was Neeltje Traas.
