Search for Family Members:

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.

1. CHARLES WILLIAM ARGLE, b 14 Jul 1874 probably in Bay City MI. He died after the 1930 census of Snohomish County, Washington. His name appears in an online transcription of Marysville Cemetery in that county, but birth and death dates are not shown. A newspaper article states a descendant has placed a new headstone on Charles' and his wife's graves. Snohomish Co censuses list Charles as a blacksmith, sawmill laborer, shingle mill laborer. Charles married in King Co WA in 1907 Elizabeth Pfromm, b ca 1875 MI, d 24 Feb 1943 Snohomish WA.
