I am searching for the ancestors of my great great grandfather. Here's what I know...Treffle also went by the name of Joseph T. He was born April 14, 1850 in Canada and died May 19, 1938 in Virginia, St. Louis County, MN. The 1900 Census has him listed residing in Dollarville, Luce County, MI. Living with him at that time were wife, Flora (b.1847); children - Zoitque (Zolique, b. 1876), Alexander (b.1882), Margurite (my g-grandmother, Marguerite, b. 1884) and Darlia (b.1886). There are also two children that were not listed in 1900 - Maranda (b. 1880) and Isadore (b. 1885). The Census also indicates that all of the children, except the oldest, were born in MI.
Further research leads me to believe that most of the family moved to MN around 1903, though Marguerite moved to Saginaw, MI.
Wife Flora/Florance, perhaps even Flavia, has been very difficult to trace. I believe she was born in May 1847 in Canada, and died March 13, 1904 in Virigina, MN. Family records has her maiden name listed as - Junier, Jenau.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have information on this family.
