Andrew and Mary Watson Yule, residents of Ontario, Canada had three children: Watson, John C., Edwin Watson, E.B., and Walter S.
Edwin Watson Yule went into the paper manufacturing business and worked first with a paper company in Menasha, Wisconsin, and later was one of those who established Alexandria Paper Company in Alexandria, Madison County, Indiana.
I'm interested in any associated this family had with a paper company in Cheboygan, Michigan around 1914.
In particular, I'm interested in Watson A. Yule (Andrew and Mary's son) who married Emily UNKOWN (b. England). What his connection with paper manufacturing or Cheboygan might be. If he and Emily ever had any children?
My grandmother Eleanor Kilvert Thomas worked for Watson and Emily in Chicago, Illinolis for a few years after my grandfather's death (shows in 1920 census). Family story has it that she was companion of Emily who had lost many children and that the job was found for her by my grandfather's friends at the paper company in Cheboygan, Michigan where he worked at his death. Would like to find out if there's any facts behind such.
Thanks in advance
