About: My direct paternal line is Beggs and [external link] direct maternal line is Rought and [external link] far anyway on both...Paternal line: William Beggs (possibly born in Scotland), no wife's name, but she may or may not have been born in "Eng Canada". Their children were Joseph Beggs b.abt. 14MAR1862 in "Eng Canada". I don't know of any other children at this point. On 31AUG1904 Joseph wed Clara Marie Green b. 21JAN1883 in Troy Twp., Newaygo County, Michigan. Together Joseph and Clara had the following children: Francis "Frank" Leon Beggs (my grandfather)b. 2NOV1904 (a possible shotgun wedding). Archibald "Archie" McClain, Thelma Marie, Madeline "Midge" Lee. This is my brickwall...Maternal line: Leroy Mead Rought and Carrie Tillotson; John Albert Rought b. 19APR1881 in Michigan d. 1954 in Michigan wed LaVina Blanche Pulsipher b. in Michigan. Together they had the following children: Ronald Mead, Duella DelDeayne, Patricia DaVonna, Jessie Elaine, Myron (Bucky) and Leroy Mead. They divorced she rewed and he never did...LaVina's parents were Owen Jay Pulsipher and Elizabeth Opplis. I do have more info on the 4 surnames [external link] a lot and some a little...

Brenda Salazar I don't know about the woman and children, but I have a couple of questions about the men. 1. Are they brothers, cousins, uncles to each other? 2. What if any information do you have on Charles Wesley Green? I ask these questions as my GUncle is Charles Wesley Green born in Michigan...I don't know alot about him...my GGrandfather was James Green married Mary Eitniear... Thank you for your help...it is very much appreciated...I have tons of Greens in my family, but not a lot of info on them... My Greens are descendant from Jonathan V. Green b. abt 1806; d. bet.1880-1884 in Ferry Twps., Oceana, Michigan. Spouse: Ruth Mead

Brenda Salazar I am looking for information on my GGrandfather Joseph Beggs...Joseph shows up in Walkerville, Colfax Twp., Oceana Co., Michigan around 1895...he was one of the first to settle in this area...however, before this I don't find a trace...he wed my GGrandmother 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; Betty Lou, Evelyn Aleta, Shirley Arlene, Ronald LaVerne, and Lorraine "Joyce" Beggs. Ronald is my Dad. He was born 19JUL1935 in Colfax Twp, MI d. 7NOV2007 in Roseville, Macomb, MI...he wed my Mom...Duella DelDeayne Rought b. 16MAY1937 (living)together they had me, Brenda Joyce b. 7NOV1959 in Hart, Oceana, MI and my older sister Dorothy Elaine b. 9MAR1958 also in Hart...They eventually divorced and he remarried a lady named Linda Hellebuyck b. 5MAY1948 (living)together Dad and Lin had the following children, Ronald Maurice Beggs born 11OCT1973 and Brian Keith Beggs b. 20NOV1979 both boys were born in Macomb County, Michigan and one still lives there. Any information anyone might have is greatly needed, wanted,and will be greatly appreciated!!! Angel Hugs... Brenda Beggs-Salazar
