We are trying to identify the Native tribe and family of my great grandmother, and who we think is her mother. Leah Recore Therrian (1890-1965), and Nettie Shalau (1860/70s).
Leah and possibly Nettie were orphans from Chippewa County, Michigan (Trout Lake?). Leah was a "servant" girl in the census, and lived with the Recore family until she married Joseph Therrian (1874-1949) in Altona, NY.
There may be a Shalau family currently in Michigan connected with the Trepto family, who recently had their 100th reunion, but none of the latter attended so we could not make contact.
