Mary Ellen, Thanks for the information. I will try to reach someone there and see if they connect. I don't know if Eliza had family that moved to Michigan but its worth a shot. She and Bezaliel moved to Gratiot county in the 1840's I believe with 2 of their children (2 were born in New York) and had 2 more that I know of in Gratiot county.
Do you know if there are any Locke,Salisbury,North or Passenger family members still in Gratiot County? Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Jan
