Sharon (my daughter) and my trip to Northern Michigan (Yuppers) in July 2010, took us to Lake Linden and Hubbell, where my grandmother Anne Beaudette Boudreau Cossette was born, and where grandpa Phillip Joseph Cossette lived for a time. These are some of the current sights, and below are some from the past of the Beaudette family. (Some photos taken by my uncle, Fr. Raymond Cossette: the older photos come from the collection my uncle has, that were from Grandma Anne and Grandpa Phillip Cossette)
