George Punches born 12/13/1780 married to Madeline Esterly Punches.They had son named Samuel Punches born in Fayette, N. Y. in 1821.Samuel was married to Elizabeth Lambright Punches.They had a son born in Illinois on 10/8/1848 named Richard A. Punches.Richard was marriedto Adelia D. Weed and we believe they had at least 2 sons namely Claude A. Punches born in Cedar Springs, Michigan on 9/16/1879 and possibly Reginald Punches who was born around 1885 possibly in Kansas. Claude my great grandfather left Montana where the family was living at age 18 and by covered wagon traveled to the West coast where he took a steamer to Alaska to mine for gold.He was in Alaska about three years and came back to Montana to find his family.They had moved and he never saw his mother, father, or brother again.We think his father, Richard A.Punches died in Austin, Montana on 6/2/1916.We think his mother remarried and moved to Canada.Have no idea about brother John Punches, but he may have moved to Kansas.Claude Punches married Wilhelmina K. Punches of Kingson, N.Y. on 1/31/1912 and they lived in N.Y. until they moved to Natchez in 1961.Claude and Wilhelmina had one child Richard K. Punches.R. K. Punches had 1 child Robert R. Punches, and he had 2 children Margaret A. Punches and Richard K. Punches II.
