hello, i am doing research on the Degeer family that lived in Michigan. My Gr'Gr' Grandmother was Edith Degeer, the last daughter of Colin Degeer and Eliza (Fuller) Degeer. Gr'GR Grandma Edith was born 2-14- 1856. she married Isaac Phillip Ridley in Sanilac Co MI  4 -16-1871. they had 11 children and my Gr' Grandmother Eliza Jane (Dollie) Ridley was born 7-6-1883. (Dollie) married Henry P Willis (b:9-10-1878) in Michigan. Dollie and Henry had one daughter, my Grandmother Hazel M Willis b: 5-22-1910.i also know that after Colin's Death Eliza Degeer remarried Randall Wixson about 1859.
 i am trying to confirm any knowledge on Edith, her father Colin? who were his parents? if you can help please leave me a message here.
