Laslett family history

Henry and Ann Lasslett of Detroit

Henry was born at Herne Bay, Kent, on 21 January 1850. He was the fourth son of Thomas Lasslett, a baker, and his wife Emma Lasslett née Blake (page 84).

Henry immigrated to Detroit Michigan in the early 1850s with the rest of his family.

Henry was naturalised as a US citizen on 20 February 1896 after lodging the standard Declaration of Intention (pictured) in 1889, swearing allegence and on the affidavit of his brother that he met the residential requirements.

He was married on 16 December 1875 to Ann Maria Cox at Macomb County in Michigan. The 24 June 1880 Census for the State of Michigan shows Henry and Ann to be living in Erin, Macomb County. Ann was aged 27 (the IGI says 23) and stated that she was born in Michigan to parents who had been born in England. Henry was shown as a farmer and living on a farm adjacent to his brother John. The children were shown as "Charley" and "Allas".

Henry died in 1935 and and Ann in 1941. They are both buried at Erin Grove Cemetery.
