Returning a family album to its rightful owners
Recently, I came into the possession of a very old and beautiful family album. It is in very good condition for its age. The photos seem to range from 1900 to 1910. The family names noted are Coffin, Hauk, Norman and Paul. Also, there is a letter written by Ellen Coffin of the Parker Coffin family of the Wayne County Coffin Quaker Pioneers, stating that they are of Norman-French descent. Total, there is probably 30-40 very old photographs. The following are just a few. If a notation is added, it is what someone has written on the back of the photo. Please let me know if you recognize any of these, so that the album may be returned to its rightful owner.
Good luck in finding a family member. What a precious find for the family. I encourage everyone to identify their old photos. I have some of unidentified family members I would love to have identified. Lost to the ages. A shame.

I am unable to claim, but am thrilled to see a Hauck (Hauk) reference. I have Hauk’s from the neighboring Cass County. Have not looked at the line in years, and have no real information; but it has peaked my interest. Thanks for your efforts.
