August Franz Globensky and wife, Marie

Received an email today from a distant cousin who shared information about my great-great-great-great-great grandparents. I was also able to learn more about them (as luck would have it) on Wikipedia! As of tonight, I'm still sifting through all of the information that I've learned but wanted to post the pictures I have found of August Franz Globensky and his wife, Marie. Below is the ancestry line that extends over time to me.

My grandmother, Edith Fredette Yops, daughter of
Alice Argle Fredette, daughter of
Ellen Lambert Argle, daughter of
Lucie Globensky Lambert, daughter of
Joseph Globensky, son of
August Franz Globensky and wife Marie (both pictured, above).

Berndt Brothers

Below is a picture of my great-grandmother Emma's brothers - Henry and Leo.

August and Emma Yops

These are two new pictures of my great-grandparents, August Daniel Yops and Emma Marie Berndt Yops.  August and Emma were my grandfather, August Ernest Yops', parents. They were born in Germany and traveled to the United States around 1872.

Yops Family

Just received some pictures from my cousin, Chris. Our grandparents were brother and sister - my grandpa, August Yops, and her grandmother, Elsie Yops Kramer.  Both were the children of August Daniel Yops and Emma Marie Berndt Yops. The handwriting in the picture, below, is Elsie's.

The below picture of my great-grandmother, Emma, is a new one that I just received. Emma died in 1913 after cancer of the uterus. I can't help but think of what she must have had to endure not only in treatment, but the diagnosis of the cancer. I'm not sure what type of medicinal processes were available to her at that time.

Here is a picture of August and Emma with their family (before 1905, when my grandpa would be born). This picture shows  my grandpa's sisters - many who would pass away before their adult years. Elsie is the youngest. Hattie (on the left) would die in the flu epidemic of 1918 and Mattie would die young as well. Again, the writing on this picture is Elsie's, and I believe that the woman next to Emma (on her right) is her sister, Doris. I'm not sure, though.  And, I'm not sure about the woman and man to Emma's right.

Sisters - (L to R) Elsie, Mattie, and Leona

My grandpa's brother, Arthur (Art) Yops

These are pictures of Elsie Yops Kramer and her husband George. George was an owner of Kramer-Eberts Pontiac dealership in River Rouge, Mi. My grandpa, August, as a car painter there.

And, this is a picture of Aunt Nora and Uncle Freddy. I'm not sure how they fit in - any information is welcomed!

THANKS again to my distant cousins in Washington who sent more Argle/Fredette pictures. My family and I have enjoyed them so much. Wish Grandma was here to tell us stories about who/what/where.

Veronica is Aunt Monica, my grandma's sister and Uncle Frank. My dad thinks this pic was taken at the stairs of the Cicotte St. house in River Rouge.

Jack and Madeline were siblings of my grandma, and Rhea and Joann were the children of Marion (Aunt Edith's daughter. Aunt Edith was Great -grandma Alice Fredette's sister.)

Marion was Aunt Edith's daughter, and Aunt Monica was grandma's sister. This picture is taken just before 22 September 1917, the day my grandma was born.

I really enjoy knowing my family history, and I'm so excited when new information comes my way. Thank you to recent family/friends who have shared information and pictures with me.

William Argle is my great-great grandfather. He was a soilder in the Civil War during the last year of the war. Later in life, he lived at the Grand Rapids solider's home and is buried there. My grandma, Edith, said that her mother, Alice Argle Fredette, was not able to go to the funeral.

William and his wife, Amelia Krause, had children. Amelia died when son, Charles, was 15 and my great-grandma, Alice, only 5.  William was able to work, and live, at the Bay City Children's Home.
