She was placed in the home of Eber Baldwin The Baldwins had moved to the area from Oakland Co. MI. and must have been friends of the family. But Cora felt she was taken for what she could do for them. They seldom let her participate in social functions, as she had to work.

The former Vassar woman, 68, had married Edmund Hudson, 69, of Marlette within the last week, State Police said.

  Notes for GERALD ARTHUR SOMERVILLE:
I was the second born in our family; Neoma was the oldest, followed by Gerald, Cleta, Lloyd and Gillis. My cousin, Viola, and I were the closest, as we were nearer of age.
      After I graduated from Millington High School in Millington, Michigan, I secured a job at Universal Engineering Company in Frankenmuth, Michigan as an internal grinder.
      We were now in the World War II conflict, so I volunteered for service in the army. It was while I was in the service, that I began corresponding with the roommate of a former schoolmate of mine when I attended the rural school. In 1945, after I got out of the service, I began dating her.
      On August 2, 1947, Leah Turner became my wife. She was a schoolteacher, so for the first year after we were married, she taught in the Vassar Elementary school. We rented homes in the Vassar area for a few years.
      In 1952, we bought an 80-acre farm north of Mayville, Michigan. The day we moved was a beautiful day for the first of November. It was so warm, we were in our shirtsleeves. We were quite pioneers. There was a flowing well just outside the house and all the water we used had to be carried. An outside building served as our bathroom. Later we had the water piped into the house and the spring capped, so if the electricity was shut off, we still could have water. This happened quite often in the early days. Neighbors came to get water, also.
...1953......, a tornado like wind came through followed by a severe electricity storm. Lightening hit our barn destroying it and threatening our house. The temperature was so hot on the back porch that it broke the thermometer and left charred holes in the steps. We were thankful that the wind shifted directions, blowing the flames away from the house.
      On a summer's day in 1960, we were all outside in the field, when the sheriff stopped by to tell me that my father had passed away. He was living in Pontiac, Michigan at the time. He had divorced my mother while I was in the service of my country.
      After my father died, my mother married Edmond Hudson. They had been family friends and he had lost his wife. They were on their honeymoon, traveling east at Reed City, Michigan, when Edmond ran into a salt brine truck. Mother was killed instantly and Edmond lived only a day or two.
      All our children had the experience of attending a one-room rural school. Christmas time in the rural school was a special event. Children practiced for weeks on plays and songs they would present to the parents. Sometimes Leah would play the piano for the program, as well as for practice.
      Celebrating birthdays was always important to Leah. When money was scarce, gifts were small. Many times added homemade gifts made the gifts seem bigger, but each child was remembered on his special day.
      In our family birthdates followed a pattern. Each of my brothers and sisters had a child born on the thirteenth, except Cleta. Mother said if she hadn't gadded all over the day before, she would have had hers on the thirteenth, also. The others followed a pattern of nines- nine, nineteen and twenty-nine.
      In 1962, we added on a large kitchen and two bedrooms to our small five-room house. That same year, Leah returned to teaching. She taught in the Mayville Elementary School for twenty years. The following year, 1984, I retired from Universal Engineering, Frankenmuth, Michigan, after working there for almost forty-three years. We bought a small trailer following our retirement and do some traveling. We go to warmer climes in the winter and in the summers we work at our hobby- family history. We have done research in Ontario and Quebec as well as in local areas.
      On August 2, 1987, our children honored us on our forty years together with a family gathering of around fifty at our youngest daughter's home in Bay City, Michigan.
We are enjoying our children and grandchildren and looking forward to another grandchild in 1990. Maybe we will have a granddaughter this time.
      The Lord had blessed us with good health until the spring of 1989, when I had a heart attack, but I have improved and am thankful to be able to get around and we are looking forward to the remaining years He will give us.
