    Children:
    1. 2. Daniel Squier Fitzgerald was born on 23 May 1923 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; died on 27 Aug 2011 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; was buried in Fort Custer National Cemetery, Augusta, Kalamazoo, Michigan.

  3. 6.  John Q. Myers was born on 6 Feb 1895 in Carson City, Montcalm, Michigan (son of John Walter Myers and Electa Frances Eisenlohr); died on 6 Nov 1965 in Marengo Township, Calhoun, Michigan.

    Notes:

    Also called John Quin Myers, John Quincy Myers. His surname is also sometimes recorded as Myer. He appears on some records as "Quin Myers" or "Quin Meyers."

    John married Rosalia Martha Allen on 12 Dec 1924 in Lansing, Ingham, Michigan, and was divorced on 11 Sep 1944 in Calhoun County, Michigan. Rosalia (daughter of Elbert Freeman "Bert" Allen and Marion Van Wort) was born about 1905; died on 4 Apr 1985 in Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Rosalia Martha Allen was born about 1905 (daughter of Elbert Freeman "Bert" Allen and Marion Van Wort); died on 4 Apr 1985 in Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio.

    Notes:

    Also spelled Roselia, Rosalie, Rosella, Rosslie, etc.

    We do not know her exact date or place of birth. The record of her 1924 marriage to John Q. Myers says that she was born in in Howell, Michigan and that she was 19, implying a birth year around 1905. The record of her 1945 marriage to John B. Squier says that she was born in Lansing, Michigan and that she was 39, implying a birth year around 1906. Both marriage records confirm that she was a daughter of Elbert Freeman Allen and Marion Van Wort, and the 1910 and 1920 census records of that couple list a daughter of the appropriate age named Rosalia or Roselia. Elbert Freeman Allen was born in Howell in 1873 and married Marion Van Wort there in 1892. Finally, Rose M. Squier's 9 Apr 1985 obituary in the Battle Creek Enquirer, says that she was born in Lansing and gives her age at death as 79, implying a birth year of 1905. This obituary correctly identifies its subject as the mother of "Barbara Fitzgerald of Dayton" and, while it makes no mention of her first husband, it also correctly says "Her husband, John B. Squier, died in 1963."

    She is a subject of extreme confusion in various user-submitted trees on ancestry.com and listings on Find a Grave. Her second husband was not John McGowen Squires (1903-1972), a son of Albert E. Squires and Ruth May McGowen. Nor was he Walter R. Squires (1892-1973), a son of William Rosecrans Squires and Laura Belle Myers. Walter R. Squires did marry, on 14 Feb 1931 in Mason, Ingham County, Michigan, a woman named Rose M., but she was Miss Rose M. Erbe, 25 years old, born in Mantador, North Dakota, a daughter of Albert Erbe. Walter R. Squires died in Lansing on 9 Feb 1973 and, acccording to his 11 Feb 1973 obituary in the Lansing State Journal, was survived by his wife Rose. Walter and Rose are interred together at Resurrection Cemetery in Wyoming, Kent County, Michigan, under a plaque that gives his birth and death dates as 26 Nov 1892 and 9 Feb 1973, and hers as 20 May 1905 and 11 Mar 2005. She is beyond any possible doubt not the Rosalia M. (Allen) (Myers) Squier who was a daughter of Elbert Freeman Allen and Marion Von Wort and the mother of Barbara Ann (Myers) Fitzgerald.

    Out of the dozens of user-submitted ancestry.com trees in which she appears, several of the less obviously confused give our Rosalia's birth as 8 Oct 1905 in Howell. None of them give a source for this precise date or place, but a birth in October 1905 is exactly consonant with the ages given in both of her marriage records, and with the age (79) given in the Battle Creek Enquirer's report of her death on 4 Apr 1985. Further, her father was born in Howell, her parents were married in Howell, and Howell is the birthplace given on the earlier of her two marriage records, all of which facts suggest that Howell, rather than Lansing, was her actual place of birth. But failing a truly stunning coincidence, she was not born there on 20 May 1905, because we know this to have been the birthdate of Rose M. Erbe, wife of Walter M. Squires.

    Children:
    1. 3. Barbara Ann Myers was born on 19 Sep 1926 in Williamston, Ingham, Michigan; died on 13 Feb 2006; was buried in Summit Cemetery, Williamston, Ingham, Michigan.


Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Norman Ackley Fitzgerald was born on 26 Jul 1869 in Convis, Calhoun, Michigan (son of Abram Fitzgerald and Sarah M. Ackley); died on 11 Dec 1934 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

    Notes:

    He was a newspaper pressman.

    Norman married Catherine Frazier on 21 May 1892 in Calhoun County, Michigan, and was divorced on 17 Sep 1906 in Calhoun County, Michigan. Catherine (daughter of Duncan Fraser and Catherine Gillespie) was born on 2 Mar 1874 in Creemore, Simcoe, Ontario; died on 3 Sep 1920 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; was buried on 5 Sep 1920 in Oak Hill Cemetery, Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Catherine Frazier was born on 2 Mar 1874 in Creemore, Simcoe, Ontario (daughter of Duncan Fraser and Catherine Gillespie); died on 3 Sep 1920 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; was buried on 5 Sep 1920 in Oak Hill Cemetery, Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Mar 1871, Canada

    Notes:

    She applied to divorce Norman Ackley Fitzgerald on 19 Oct 1905.

    Her death certificate gives her birthplace as "Freemore, Ont.," which doesn't exist. Our belief is that she was actually born in Creemore, Ontario, which is in Simcoe County.

    1. 4. Waldo Everett Fitzgerald was born on 29 Sep 1894 in Michigan; died in Nov 1972 in Olympia, Thurston, Washington; was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

  3. 10.  Charles Albert Squier was born on 5 Jan 1861 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan (son of Daniel Squier and Patience Yard Simpson); died on 26 Nov 1934 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

    Notes:

    From "People and Events of Yesteryear: Charles Albert Squier", citation details below:

    Charles Squier began his career with the Battle Creek Machinery Co., predecessor of American-Marsh Pumps, Inc., learning the machinist trade. It was while with this firm that he recognized the need in industry and business of an extra heavy shipping tag.

    Charles and his father went to work on this idea. After designing a tag they were still faced with the problem of production. The two men built one machine after another, each better than the one before and finally evolved an automatic machine that would print, trim, reinforce and string a wire in the punched hole of the tag, all in one continuous operation. This machine was in operation by their American Mfg. Co. as early as 1888 and with addedre finements was used until the business here was sold in 1945. Members of the firm in its early days were Daniel and Charles Squier and Mr. Bromberg. [...]

    For many years the tag factory was operated at the rear of the Fremont street residence. Charles A. Squier, 73, died at his home on Nov. 26, 1934 and for the next 11 years the business was continued by his son, John B. Squier. It was then sold to a Chicago firm. The factory building is now used by Bernice Squier for her Twinzy Toy Co.

    Charles married Julia Elizabeth Hickman on 24 Nov 1892 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan. Julia (daughter of John Elisha Hickman and Magdalin Miller) was born on 12 Sep 1870 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; died on 1 Oct 1958 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

    2. 5. Dorothy M. Squier was born on 15 May 1896 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; died on 15 Jul 1988.
    3. Daniel Squier was born on 15 May 1896 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.
    4. Bernice Squier was born on 23 Sep 1899 in Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan; died on 6 Sep 1968 in Berkeley, Alameda, California; was buried in Memorial Park Cemetery, Battle Creek, Calhoun, Michigan.

  5. 12.  John Walter Myers was born on 2 May 1854 in Killbuck, Holmes, Ohio (son of David T. Myers and Mary Ann Miller); died on 3 Feb 1923 in Blackburn, Jackson, Michigan; was buried on 5 Feb 1923 in Carson City Cemetery, Carson City, Montcalm, Michigan.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 5 Feb 1923, Montcalm County, Michigan

    Notes:

    His death certificate describes him as a retired "switchman," presumably a railroad job.

    John married Electa Frances Eisenlohr on 10 May 1881 in Montcalm County, Michigan. Electa (daughter of James Eisenlohr) was born on 4 Aug 1858 in Michigan; died on 3 Jun 1936 in Beaverton, Gladwin, Michigan; was buried on 6 Jun 1936 in Carson City Cemetery, Carson City, Montcalm, Michigan. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 13.  Electa Frances Eisenlohr was born on 4 Aug 1858 in Michigan (daughter of James Eisenlohr); died on 3 Jun 1936 in Beaverton, Gladwin, Michigan; was buried on 6 Jun 1936 in Carson City Cemetery, Carson City, Montcalm, Michigan.

    Notes:

    Her death certificate gives her marital status as "widowed" and her father as James Eisenlohr. This would seem to preclude the idea that she is the "Flora E. Myers", daughter of Peter Eisenlord and Louisa Robinson, who at 75 years of age in 1935 married William B. Canouts, age 79, in Midland County, Michigan. William B. Canouts died in 1941.

    These two individuals, Electa Frances Eisenlohr who married John Walter Myers, and Flora E. Myers who late in life married William B. Canouts, appear to have been conflated into a single person on the Find a Grave page for Electa Frances Eisenlohr Myers, and in a number of other online sources.

    We have found no other record of her father James Eisenlohr, but census and other records show a number of Eisenlohrs living in and near Gladwin County, Michigan in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, quite a few of whom are named James.

    Elbert married Marion Van Wort on 2 Jul 1892 in Howell, Livingston, Michigan. Marion (daughter of George Seward Van Wort and Hattie C. Crowell) was born on 11 Jan 1873 in Mount Morris, Genesee, Michigan; died on 17 Nov 1948 in Williamston, Ingham, Michigan; was buried in Summit Cemetery, Williamston, Ingham, Michigan.
