Betsy was my GGG Grandmother, b. 1762 Harrison Co., KY D. 4 Feb 1861 Lewis Co., MO m. 13 Jan 1811 in Harrison Co., KY to Graham Wallace b. 28 Oct 1789 Pendleton Co., KY (who wasn't) d. 6 Jan 1870 Lewis Co., MO. He was a soldier in War of 1812; apprenticed with wife’s father in millwright trade; Farmer; moved to Lewis County, MO 1850. Twelve children.
I have her parents as John Makemsom and Elizabeth Brown (no dates). I am interested in any Makemsoms who are related and any insight into the name, which is strange... I guess it is an alternative spelling of a Scot's MAC-something.
