Those Places Thursday: Elsie, Michigan

Elsie, Michigan was where my grandmother, 
Ethel Ranney Tapley, was born and lived until the family
moved to California around 1920.

Grandma's sister, Alice, had tuberculosis so the doctor suggested
they move her to a dryer climate.

"Elsie is an incorporated place located in Clinton County, Michigan... it had a population of 978 people" and "a land area of 1.16 square miles...according to the U.S. Census Bureau estimate of July 1, 2009." (Courtesy:  MI Hometown Locator.) So it is still a very small place.  Elsie is classified as a "village" and is located about 35 miles northeast of Lansing.
