We are trying to find sibling families, deaths of these g-g-g-gparents, William Chesebrough ROOT and wife Abigail COOK(E). The MI 1870 Census, St. Joseph Co., Mendon Twsp., has them in home of son-in-law Winslow BROWN 26 and daughter Laura [ROOT] BROWN 24 b.KY. William 50 b.NY, & Abigail Root 48 b.NY, are shown having youngest Chas 17 b. MI, and Lottie 4 b.MI, of 7 children with them. The 1850 MI, Kalamazoo Co., Brady Twsp. shows Almon Sylvester b.NY (moved on to ID, UT), Daniel b.NY, Laura, Louisa b.MI, Martha b.MI. Any information is appreciated.
Like so many into MI by 1847, these NY ROOTS were of CT & MA pilgrim families. We do not know of Abigail COOK(E)'s parentage; do you? Thanks in anticipation.
