DEGRAVE, VANDENPLAS, YUSVAK posted by Anne L. Yusvak_DeGrave on Sunday, July 29, 2007

My name is Anne L. YUSVAK ~DEGRAVE I am the youngest daughter of Lawrence and Rita (VANDENPLAS) YUSVAK. Since they only had 2 daughters, this surname was not going to survive as my father was the youngest of 16 (He had 15 older sisters). My parents are deceased, and I have since bought the homeplace from the estate. We are in Flintville, Wisconsin. My daughter has since given this surname to her young son Gabriel.

COPPENS, MCKEE, NELSON posted by Janice Moen on Saturday, July 12, 2008

I am in my fourth year's search for a second cousin who posted a query on in January 2001 seeking information on both sides of her family. She listed grandparents, aunts, and uncles. She stated that most pictures and papers had been lost. By the time I found the message, no e-mail leads worked. I have left messages on some genealogy sites with no results and "people search" efforts all end up in frustration. I am looking for Caryll Florentine COPPENS MCKEE or perhaps her brother, John Henry Coppens, Jr. This family was from the Chicago area. I found lots of John Coppens, two of whom I called as they were listed as John Henry, Jr but they could not help in WI and one in MI. Their maternal grandfather, Carl NELSON, and my maternal grandfather, Nels Nelson, were brothers born into a large Danish family in northwestern part of Iowa in the 1880's. I knew from the Social Security Death Index that their parents had both died and last residences listed are in Wisconsin. The father, John Henry Coppens, born 20 Aug 1913, died in Feb 1982....last residence: DePere, Brown Co, WI; Mother, Sylvia Florentine (Nelson) Coppens, born 21 Dec 1915, died 21 Dec 1995....last residence: Green Bay, Brown Co, WI. I have thought that obituraries would be helpful. Perhaps they spent their later years in WI to be near family and/or for health reasons. Any more information would be appreciated. I get no search results that I can use to find Caryll McKee. No simple just finding her phone number and address...always get sent to the detective/background search sites which I find completely unsatisfactory. I have some pictures and a lot of the Nelson family history that I assume she would appreciate receiving. My grandfather settled in North Dakota after homesteading in Montana. His other 10 siblings lived in Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon, California, and Chicago.
