PRAUSE'S FROM MICHIGAN, SLEEPING BEAR DUNES AREA,
Posted by: BETH PRAUSE REA Date: September 25, 2001 at 12:38:00
  of 39

I AM LOOKING TO TRACE MY FAMILY TREE AND HAVE HIT MANY ROAD BLOCKS. MY GRANDFATHER WAS NAMED MEVIN (DIED 03-11-1988). HE HAD 4 BROTHERS AND 1 SISTER. JULIUS (DIED JAN. 1986), WILLIAM, GORDON, TRACY, AND MILDRED. MY GREAT GRANDFATHER'S NAME WAS WILLIAM ABRAHAM PRAUSE. I HAVE SOME INFORMATION THAT SHOWS THAT THEY HAD RELATIVES THAT LIVED ON A FARM WITH A FRUIT ORCHARD ON THE PROPERTY THAT IS NOW KNOWN AS SLEEPING BEAR DUNES, IN MICHIGAN. MY GRANDFATHER AND HIS BROTHER (JULIUS) SPENT MANY YEARS LIVING IN GRAYLING MICHIGAN. SOME RELATIVES HAVE BEEN SAID TO HAVE LIVED IN GLEN ARBOR MICHIGAN AS WELL AS GRAYLING MICHIGAN. IF YOU HAVE ANY TIES TO THESE PEOPLE OR ANY INFORMATION IT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
