I am researching a Pomroy family the originated in Devon and emigrated to Michigan in 1864, to Lake Linden/Schoolcraft in Houghton County.To the extent of my current knowledge, the family includes:
John J. Pomroy b. 1838, Devon
Elisabeth Jane Bail Piercy b. 1832, Devon
Their children are:
William John, b. 1860, Devon
(m. Mary, children:Charles H., b. 1894, Mable, b. 1895, Leslie, b. 1897, and Ruth M. b. 1899)
Elisabeth Jane, b. 1862, Devon (m.?)
Agnes Ann, b. 1863, Devon (m. William C. Harris)
Thomas H., b. 1868, Michigan (m. Katherine O. Franks, children: Grace, b. 1896, Raphael, b. 1898, Hazel, b. 1899, Augusta, b. 1901, Lila b. 1903, Blanche b. 1906, Vera, b. 1910, John b. 1912, Adeline, b. 1913)This branch of the family moved to Butte MT, and eventually to Seattle, WA.
Richard E., b. 1869, Michigan (m. Lily, children, Pearl R., b. 1894, Wesley, b. 1896, and Leslie/Lester? b. 1900.)
James, b. 1871, Michigan
Sarah, b. 1873, Michigan (m. ?Gilbert?)
John, b. 1878, Michigan
I would be interested in hearing from any Pomroys in Michigan to make connections or even to rule out connections.I have been corresponding with some Devon researchers from the Pomerology one-name study site and it would be quite interesting to link up other Pomroys with the Devon information as well.
