THE JOHNSON--BEARUP FAMILY TREE

Updated June 4, 2002


I AM RESEARCHING THE JOHNSON AND BEARUP FAMILIES OF NORTHERN MICHIGAN. MY FATHER WAS MELVIN GEORGE JOHNSON. HE WAS BORN IN THE TOLEDO, OHIO AREA ON AUGUST 26, 1913. HE WENT BY THE NAME OF JOHNSON ALL OF HIS LIFE. HIS REAL FATHER'S LAST NAME WAS LANGE AND HE THOUGHT THAT HE WAS ADOPTED BY HIS MOTHER'S SECOND HUSBAND. MY PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER'S NAME WAS IDA A. KEICHEL. SHE WAS BORN IN GERMANY ON MAY 5, 1892. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND OUT MUCH OF ANYTHING ABOUT MY FATHER AND HIS FAMILY SO FAR.
MY MOTHER WAS BORN BONNIE MAE BEARUP ON MARCH 14,1933 IN PETOSKEY, MICHIGAN. HER PARENTS WERE DEWITT G.BEARUP AND GRETCHEN FLORENCE WEBB. HER PARENTS WERE JAMES WEBB AND MAGDALENA (LENA) TREAT(TRENT). MAGDALENA WAS BORN ON DECEMBER 15, 1883 IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. JAMES WEBB WAS BORN IN 1869 AND DIED IN PETOSKEY, MICHIGAN ON JANUARY 25, 1924. MY GRANDFATHER'S PARENTS WERE SPURGEON D. BEARUP AND ELIZABETH ECKEL. THEY ARE BOTH BURIED IN PETOSKEY, MICHIGAN. I KNOW VERY LITTLE OF ANY OF MY RELATIVES AND AM QUITE ANXIOUS TO UNCOVER ALL THE MYSTERIES.

ANY HELP THAT YOU CAN SEND MY WAS WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND I WILL BE WILLING TO SHARE ANY INFORMATION THAT I HAVE THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL TO YOU.
