Alonzo Aloyisus Race
Posted by: Marjorie Straub (ID *****3448) Date: July 12, 2004 at 17:04:47
  of 555

My Grandfather Alonzo A. Race was born in Algoma Twn.Michigan January 13, 1875 And Died December 7, 1950. He was married to Carrie Lawton Race, B. June 27, 1878 and passed on April 12, 1945.

I am looking for information on my family. Part of the Race family changed their name's to RAYCE, my father said it in support of the French during WW1. Because he stated this all of my life, I believe it to be true. The following changed their names, Marjorie Norma Rayce, Louis Michael Rayce, Edith Rayce (Goodale), Robert Rayce, (California). So unfortunately we have had changes in the names. Another thing that puzzles me is my father says Grandma's name was Clarice Clarabelle Lawton and she did not like it so she used Carrie.

Any info. welcome.
Marjorie Ann Race Straub
