Have some old tintypes of Brocketts and related people from Blue Earth, Minnesota. They came to Texas after the Civil War. I believe one photo is of Ansell R. Brockett, the preacher and abolitionist. This group is descended from John Brockett of New Haven, Connecticut, original settler.
From Ansell, my family descends as follows:
1. Ansell m. Lucy B. Tooley, and they had Nancy Jane Brockett.
2. Nancy Jane Brockett m. John Dillivan Dayton from New York.
3. They had Lucy Violet Dayton who married Oscar Clayton Woodliff (Texas transplant from NC). They had Rosey Lee Woodliff.
4. Rosey Lee Woodliff m. Harry Raymond Morse Sr., my grandfather.
We don't know if the tintypes are all Brocketts or not. Other brothers and sisters to Lucy Violet Dayton are:
Ansell Jacob DAYTON John Dilivan DAYTON George Henry DAYTON Rolin Salem DAYTON Sylvester Harrison DAYTON Rosey Jane DAYTON Myrtle Azinnia DAYTON George H. DAYTON William Eli DAYTON Fred Lewis DAYTON
Some of the photos may be of Dayton children or their Brockett aunts, uncles, or cousins. Need help identifying these folks. Anybody game out there?
