I have copies of James Darwin Brocketts Pocket Diary from 1865 and 1864. The names I have mentioned were in there along with the dates, but I can not find any info on these people.Or should I say my family. My Munson shows he was born in 1791 from what James Darwin wrote. James Darwin is my ggrandfather he was born 1841 in New York.
Someone did a Census look-up for me. This is what I have from that. 1850 New York Cayuga Summerhill Munson Brockett age 65 born in New York farmer Susan age 60 born New York Darwin age 8 born New York
Darwin (James Darwin) American Civil War Soldier Record Listed as Darwin Brockett Enlisted may 1861 Union Served New York
Also someone found in the 1900 census James D. Brocket (note spelling) Northville, Wayne, MI age 57 they have his birth date in 1842 instead of 1841 James Darwin Brockett passed in 1909 1900 census has him married to Lizzie Brockett They have 5 kids and 4 are living. Charles 1881 Earl 1884 May 1886 Inez 1893
The spellings I have are Charles Lee George Earl Ethel Mae Inez Irene
I also have in his diary a Melly Brockett. Not sure when he mentioned her if she was in New York or in Michigan. I have a copy of something I googled and she was in Michigan in 1892. I see here an Anna Brockett wrote something in a paper I just have her name and it posted in 1908.
