GOUPILLE, Rudolph A. 1

  • Born: 5 Apr 1929, Grand Marais, Alger County, Michigan
  • Died: 12 Oct 1987, Ishpeming, Marquette County, Michigan at age 58 2

bullet  General Notes:

Rudolph inherited a great stretch of property in Grand Marais, Michigan, through which the AuSable River passed, including the AuSable Falls (known in the family as "Rudy's Falls"). The property was originally owned by Rudolph's mother's family, and was the largest dairy farm in the Upper Penninsula at that time. Rudy eventually sold the property to the state of Michigan, and this area is now known as the AuSable Falls State Park. Walking trails and a wooden stairway now lead visitors to "Rudy's Falls." Included is a photograph of the falls.
