FLEET family connections
The name FLEET shows up on
comments powered by
our family tree quite a few
times as a given name.I
started to wonder if at some
point it was a surname.
I am stuck on tracing my
family back prior to 1850.
This is the line.The name
"Fleet" as a given name shows
up in John's descendants quite
a few times.
This is all I know, and it's
from John's side:
John Delancey Stanton, b1850
James Harvey Stanton, b???
Not sure where they were born.
John's info lists three different
states:Michigan, Illinois, Ohio
(taken from census, obit, death record)
I have no idea where or when James
died, so I have not yet been able
to find info on him.
Extensive research of the STANTON
families in the US/England have
not brought about a connection to
the two brothers above.
The following given names appear
often:Henry, Harvey, Fleet
IT is thought - but not known for
sure - that the mother of John and
James was a DELANCEY.Follow-up has
not shown this to be true as we
simply are at an impass.
So, we got to thinking - perhaps
FLEET was a surname at one time.
