I have been searching for info on my maternal grandfathers side of the family for years now & have found nothing. My mothers maiden name was Corey. I've gone on leads only to find them dead ends. There has been nothing concrete in my search.

I am literally going nuts because I have hit many brick walls in my search. I know nothing else but the info i've provided below. Can someone help me please? This has been so frustrating for me! If anyone has ANY info on this matter please email me.

Irving COREY
Birth Date: 3 Jun 1918
Death Date: 31 Oct 1995

Born-Michigan? (Detroit?)
Died-Greenfield, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Father was Alvin Corey (married an Anne/AnnaClarke who was born in Scotland & lived in Ireland when she was a little girl.)

Irving married Mercedes Duby (died Novemeber 1989) or Dube & had 1 daughter nemaed Laura Anne Corey (my mother) who was born in Detroit, Michigan (?) on October 3, 1942 & died in April 2001. I know my mother lived in Detroit as a baby & toddler. Then her mother & father moved to Iron Mountain, Michigan & then to South Milwuakee, Wisconsin while a child & teen.

Also Irving my grandpa, went by the nickname "BUZZ" while my grandma went by "MERC." Irving had a sister named Ruth who is still living (i supose) & she lives in either Iron Mountain or Kingsford, Michigan. I met her once about 13 years ago in Michigan.
