Hi Crystal,
It has been awhile since I have been to this forum. I can help you with the Troyer's in Michigan. These people including my own ancesters that came to Antrim County were Amish Mennonites. They arrived shortly after 1880 to Mancelona. Many of the Mennonites stayed in Mancelona while the Amish Mennonites moved about 9 miles west to Custer Twp. The settlement became known as Troyers Amish Mennonite settlement or Troyers Schoolhouse. John D. Troyer was the School Administrator for the ward. John D. and brother Joseph Troyer moved to Milford Nebraska while some of the married children stayed in Michigan. I have deeds, and obits for John D. and Joseph along with other information if you are interested. I have also written an account called "The Little Flock In Antrim County, Michigan" that just appeared in the Mennonite Family History Magazine. Contact me at my email address and I would be happy to give you as much or as little information as you would like. Chuck
