Adelia DeGan Denny Born 182 Years Ago

Author: Brenda Leyndyke / Labels: , , ,

Adelia Mary DeGan Denny was born 18 June 1830 to Amable Seraphim DeGanne and Adelaide Ducharme Tetreau.  They were of French Canadian Descent.  I haven't researched this side of my husband's family much.  (Recently, Kirk attended a Family History Day with me and took a two hour session on French Canadian ancestry, maybe he will get the genealogy bug and do the research.  Hint-Hint)

Adelia DeGan married Joseph W. Denny in Split Rock, Onondaga, New York (source needed).  They were the parents of 15 children.  Eventually, they settled in the Lowell, Kent, Michigan area.

Adelia Denny died 5 March 1905 in Grand Rapids, Kent, Michigan.  She is buried in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, Lowell, Kent, Michigan. 

The picture above is of Joseph W. Denny and Adelia DeGan Denny.  The photographer was Milo Hiler, Lowell, Michigan.  Photo date unknown; anyone have a guess to when it might have been taken?  Please leave a comment with your thoughts.
