Hello - Just read about your museum and the Voyaguer Day recently. Congratulations. I write about French Canadian history and culture on my blog. It is a fascinating and vital part of Michigan's history. Keep up the good work!

In the mid to late 40's my family lived in Marquette. My parents were very involved in women's softball and I remember my dad building cement block stadium seating into the dirt wall area behind the field for spectators and then painting lines to mark individual seats. I don't know what part of town it was, or the name of the park, but have often wondered what became of the field where I spent many hours of my childhood watching practice & ball games and having team family picnics after these games. My dad coached the team my mom played on. His family lived in Marquette. His dad's name was Raymond O'Neil, Sr and his mother was Margaret (Cameron) O'Neil.
