Subject: [MI-IONIA-BELDING] Otisco Twp. Births 1
Date: Mon, 15 Sep 2008 22:17:23 -0400


I have found a treasure trove of local information I wish to share with you. These are births listed with Otisco Township beginning in 1906. Please bear in mind I am transcribing these from very old handwritten records, leave room for errors. At the time these early records were recorded, there was the "Belding Sanitarium" and the "Smyrna Sanatorium" at the four corners of Smyrna run by Dr. Andrew B. Spinney and his wife Tessa Spinney. You will notice many of these records are for infants who carry their mother's last name. The sanitarium was a popular place for unwed mothers to come have their babies. Many of these records have Dr. or Mrs. Spinney indicated as caring for the mother. If you find a record of importance to you, let me know and I can provide further information. - Thanks, Kim.
