Oh Canada -- Paying Homage To My Canadian Relatives (Part One)

My great-grandfather, William Seldon Powers (shown below) was born on August 27, 1859, in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. He died July 10, 1939, in Flint, Michigan.

William S. Powers filed a Declaration of Intention for Naturalization (First Papers)* in Lapeer County, Michigan, on April 23, 1886. He married Addie (pictured above) on April 25, 1888, in Lapeer County.
