George Collen - Michigan: Crawford County; Grayling

George and wife Lura (Laura) are living with their two daughters in 1920 census. He is the proprietor of a restaurant and she is the cook. The daughters are Edith and Lucille (Lucilda).

George came from England in 1864? and was naturalized in 1874. Lura was from Michigan. I believe that her last name was Smith. That is from Edith's marriage papers to Walter Joseph LaMotte on July 25, 1921 in Grayling.

Edith was born November 4, 1904 in Frederic, Michigan and died April, 1982 in Silver Spring, Maryland; Montgomery County. Her last name at that time was Lewis.

Edith and Walter had at least two children: Waltine Evelyn - December 15, 1921 and Earline Francis - July 23, 1923. Both were born in Grayling.

Is Baward M. (check spelling) the son of Edith or Lucilda? He is listed in the 1930 census, Michigan; Crawford County; Grayling; with George Collen.

George has Waltine with him in the 1930 census and Walter has Earline with him in the 1930 census. I can't find Edith. Where is she??????

Waltena died August 16, 1989 in Petoskey, Michigan; Emmet County. She had married a Williams.

Earltine is listed as living in La Porte, Indiana in the obituary of Walter on December 10, 1959, in Grayling. She had married a Poland.

Do you have information as to where these people are buried? Any information on the family?
