|1920 Census James E. Foote|
The problem is that Church members have no idea who Rev. Foote was. His package is not listed in the Church list of items placed in the Time Capsule.
Matt Novak of Paleofuture wrote about this in a story called Mysterious Package Found in Century-Old Time Capsule
Anyone wishing to help in the search for Rev. Foote and his descendants can join in the discussion on Mr. Novak's article.
I did a quick search and found that the James E. Foote age 41 is found in the 1910 census for Antrim Michigan and is listed as "Minister - Church". His wife Maud is 39, and their children are Ruth (17), Mary (16) , Edward (14) and Arthur (13).
In 1920 James E. Foote is in Grand Ledge Michigan with his wife Maude, son James A. Foote, daughters Ruth Bendall and Mary Shearer and a grand daughter Jean Shearer. He is listed as a bookkeeper for the Parish church.
I have no doubt that my wonderful super sleuth readers can find a descendant of the Rev. James E. Foote.
