Thank you for the reply.I have been busy with other lines, so had to dust the cobwebs out, as the Jeffords/Jefferds/Clickners are not my direct line.My great grandfather's sister, Sarah Louisa TAINTER m. Nathan Gleason Fillmore Jefferds & they lived in MI.Her brother, my great grandfather, Daniel Tainter lived in Boyne City, MI & gave property to the Clickner's, John S. Clickner, but I do not know why.Here is some history I have collected re: thses families.
