Well, since I last wrote you I have confirmed many facts on my Wallin lines of MI.
Known facts are:
Joseph & Susan (Susannah Cook) Wallin are the parents of Carrie & her sister, Mary Ann Wallin.
Carrie lived with the Benj. & Susan Van Ostrand/ VanNostrand family in Albion, Calhoun County, MI.Carrie moved from the VanOstrand's to her sister, Mary Ann Wallin CHRISTIAN's home in NY in 1863.
Mary Ann Wallin m. Horace John Christian & they moved to MI and lived in Fredonia, Calhoun County, MI.Mary Ann died Dec. 1905, in Kalamazoo, MI and Carrie M. Wallin BROWN died in Feb. 1920, in Kalamazoo, MI.
Are any of these names mentioned in the book.Do you know any more about Peter VanNostrand?
