I'm trying to find the connection between my H.J.G. (Havilah J.G.) PALMER born 1810 in New York and the PALMER family who migrated to Waukesha, Wisconsin around 1837 - 1843.
According to "Memoirs of Waukesha County,"John and H.G. PALMER came to New Berlin, Waukesha County, Wisconsin in 1837.
In 1841 H.J.G.PALMER married Sarah HOPKINS, who probably died before 1846. (She is possibly the daughter of Sally HOPKINS who had a land deal with the PALMER's and is listed on the 1850 New Berlin, Waukesha Co., Wisconsin census living a few doors away)
In 1846 H.J.G. PALMER married Mrs. Lydia Louise (WORTH) HUNKINS born circa 1808 in Vermont.
The 1850 Federal Census for New Berlin, Waukesha County, Wisconsin has the following PALMER families:
1603/1425 Wm. PALMER Age 35 born about 1815 in New York, Blacksmith Permelia PALMER Age 30 born about 1820 in New York (Is this possibly Permelia HEATH?) J.W. PALMER Age 14 born about 1836 in New York H.A. PALMER Age 8 born about 1842 in New York F. PALMER Age 6 born about 1844 in Wisconsin R. PALMER Age 1 born about 1849 in Wisconsin
1671/1693 H.J.G. PALMER Age 40 born circa 1810 in New York - Sash, Door & Blind maker Louise Age 42 born about 1808 in Vermont Theodore Age 3 born about 1847 in Wisconsin Mary A.Age 7/12 born about 1850 in Wisconsin R. H. HUNKINS Age 20 born about 1830 in Vermont, Laborer Wm. R. HUNKINS Age 18 born about 1832 Vermont, Laborer Franklin B. HUNKINS Age either 16 or 10 born either 1834 or 1840 in Vermont

HUGHESAge 21 born about 1829 in Wales, Sawyer John CLARKAge 31 born about 1819 in Scotland, Engineer
Does anyone have any information regarding these PALMER families?I know that while in the Waukesha area they bought and sold land amongst themselves and owned a Sash, Door and Blind factory.
Any information would be appreciated.If you have a connection or any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
