I have been trying for years to find where Frederick's father (Mathias) originated from. As far as my personal records, Frederick was not born in Detroit, raised his and Ida's 7 children there. Mathias first showed up in the 1869 Detroit City Directory. Ida's family came from Canada to Port Huron, MI area....The Barthel's and the Bowman's and the Blake's (all family surnames) must have, at sometime, traveled together; lived in the same areas; had inter-marriages. Because every time I look for one surname, one of the others is close behind. If anyone knows of this grouping, please contact me my Email.
