"My" line is derived from Thomas Jefferson Kiger's family He was married to a woman named Martha Bell (1855 - 1934) Their daughter, Carrie-Ethel was my maternal great-grandmother. At some point they moved from Indiana to around the Detroit area. Let me know if you have questions or comments. I am new at this!
