The Birth of Michael Hope

July 18, 2014

Michael Hope, my second great grandfather, was born on this day, 18 July, in 1816. He was the son of Michael Hope, Sr. and Margaret Foster Errington and was born in Tynemouth, Northumberland, England.

Michael married Elizabeth “Bessie” Foster in July 1838 in Houghton-le-Spring, Durham, England. They had three children while they still lived in England. The young family immigrated with his parents to Grant County, Wisconsin, USA in 1846 where they made their home. In Grant County, Michael and Bessie had four more children. The couple supported their family¬† by farming. He lived 69 years before he died on 05 December, 1885.
