  • Notes 
    • Employed as a Librarian, Toni also compiled a listing of the Ontario Wild families which sparked my interest in exploring the Wild families internationally through her three ring binder "book". Peter Etue.

      In 1989 Helen (Wild) Fitch in the "acknowledgements" section of "A Family Called Wild" book, extended a special thanks to Toni Keck of Allen, Michigan, whose work with the family editors and interest in this work has been essential in assembling the Ontario story of the Wilds. She also acknowledges Bud & Marge Wild of Edmonton and her brother Dr. Jim Wild for their contributions as well.

      A few years later Jan (Mattson) Gallant created a website www.wild-roots.org concentrating on the Casamir Branch of the Wild family which I came across online and joined with Jan to cover the John Joseph Branch of the Wild family.

      Paul & Toni lived at 239 East Chicago Road, Allen, Michigan.

      Toni passed away in 1997 which was a big loss for the families in www.wild-roots.org and for me; Peter Etue taking care of the John Joseph Wild. Rest in Peace Toni you will be remembered and appreciated by many of the Wild families.
