I'm very interested in my family history. Do you know if Leverne had children who were taken away by the state of Michigan? Someone very close to me was warded to the state at a young age along with 4 other siblings - i believe in 1953. This happened in Kent County. There were 3 girls and 2 boys.. We have little information as records are no longer. We do know there was neglect- being placed on a hot stove for punishment.. We believe her mom is Maxine Dow and father is Leverne Hollenbeck. If you have any information, please let me know.
