I am also out of Richard b.1820, christened on 9 Jan 1820 in Mayfield, England.Richard married Mary UNKNOWN in New York. Richard's last son, Robert E. Sr, was my gg grandfather.Robert's daughter Prudence was my g grandmother.Prudence had my grandma, Mary E. Hall.Grandma had my mom, Wilma Canida, and mom had me. I have found that Richard and Mary had 8 kids, but she said she had 11 in the 1900 census, with 7 living in 1900.
The only difference from research another cousin has done, is that they found that Eldridge Packham b. 12 Sep 1784 in Mayfield, England, christened in 1784 in Mayfield, England, d. 1856 in Brighton, England, buried on 14 Oct 1856 in Mayfield, England.But, I also found a Eldridge bought land in WI, same place as Richard.But by the date of the census b.dates, it could have possibly been Richards brother, not his father.
I wrote you privately tonite.You are my cousin. Denise Brauer Hoehns
