I am searching for the Benjamin & Susan VanOstrand family of Albion, MI.
They raised my great grandmother, Carrie M. Wallin(g).
She married in Calhoun County, MI in May 1879.Married H.G. Brown (Harmon Gilson).
I am trying to find the name of her real parents.Supposedly she was born in NY about 1847.Her parents died & she was sent to live with Benjamin & Susan(?) VanOstrand.They had at least one son named Seymour.
I have checked the 1870 MI census online & found the VanOstrand family.But, would like to know if Carrie is listed with them in the 1860 or 1850 MI Census.
She died in Kalamazoo, MI on Feb. 14, 1920, but after her marriage lived in Steuben County, IN & Doland, S.D.
Have you heard of the VanOstrand family in your research, with a little girl, Carrie M. Wallin(g)?
