I am descended from John and Jerusha (also possibly spelled Gerusha). She also apparently went by Dorinda.
John was both 7/3/1788 in New York. He died 12/8/1872 in Quincy Township, Branch County, Michigan.
Jerusha was born about 1798 in New York. Family legend has it that she was Cherokee, but I have not been able to confirm this. She died sometime after 1870 in Branch County (the 1870 Census shows her as being 73 on 6/2/1870).
I am trying to find out who both their parents were. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
