I found most of this information in a family history that you can find on the web at the following URL:http://www.jumpnet.com/~cmwarren/MasonKaye.txt
It's taken from a Local History book of Mason County, Michigan. This family lived in many places
across the US, New England, Wisconsin, Iowa, but mostly Western Michigan, near Ludington on the
Western side of the state.* * * * *
