430 Mulder

Renting the home at 430 South Adams are James and Margaret Mulder.

James was born in Colchester, Canada around 1864 to James Mulder and Ellen Bird. The family were in Detroit, where James Sr. was working as a coachman and Ellen in a ‘private home.’ By 1889 the family is back in Colchester where James marries Ida Kirtley. James is listed as a ‘day laborer’ in the 1891 Canada Census. Ida dies sometime before 1895 when James marries Margaret (Mary). It is unclear if he moves to Ypsilanti and marries Margaret or if he marries Margaret and then they move to Ypsilanti together.

We next find James and Margaret living  at 430 South Adams in 1899.  They lived here until at least 1920, the last Census they are found in.
