Clara(h)Marie Green b. 21JAN1883 in Troy Twp., Newaygo Co., Michigan...GGrandpa was 42yrs old and GGrandma was 27yrs old when they wed(per the marriage license)on 31AUG1904. I believe this may have been a shotgun wedding as my Gramps was born a few short months later on 2NOV1904 d. 18MAY1994...after Gramps came Archibald "Archie" McClain b. 25DEC1906 d. 1NOV1993; Thelma Marie b. 1909 d. 1999; Madeline "Midge" Lee b. 1JAN1911 d. 1993 in Benzie Co., MI...one other child carries the Beggs surname but was not a Beggs'...this is Lena "Mabel" Beggs b. 12JUN1914. I believe GAunt Mabel's father may have been a fella named Benjamin Phelps, but more on that later...All the children were born in Colfax Twp.
I found Joseph in a "History of Colfax Township, Walkerville, MI" listed as one of the first settlers here and was referred to as "Joe Beggs" around 1895. I determined his birthdate from the ages listed on his marriage certificate and his death certificate.
On the 1910 US Census it states his father's name as William Beggs and that William was born in Stockholm, Scotland. However, through exhaustive research I found that there is not now, nor has there ever been a Stockholm, Scotland. It also stated that Joseph's Mother was born in "Eng Canada" (as was Joseph), but no name was given...
Gramps wed Lillian Victoria Green b. 25MAY1906 together they had the following children;
