Hey, I am looking for anyone with info of a couple in the Central Lake, Michigan area in about 1880-1970's.

There names are John Mathers and a Elizabeth Watts.

She had a brother named William Watts that I am looking for.
Here is what I do know. John and Elizabeth had a son named Henry Mathers and many years later he married a woman named Elsie Donaldson and they ended up adopting a boy named Ernie Watts. Ernie was a son to William Watts and his wife Vernice or Varma or Verma Harrington. For what ever reason William Watts and his wife was not able to take care of Ernie. So, Then like I said, Henry and his wife adopted him.

So if anyone can help me with the story or getting in touch with a person that knows of this it would be great.

You can email me at
Thanks you,
