Thanks for writing!I may have a little info for you, I hope.I have found on the 1900 census of Ferry District:(page 1) Some of it was hard to read: Living in dwelling #8 was my Canning family including Lillie Dodge Canning. In dwelling #9 was: ----Wiswell--b. May 1867 born Mi, father born Vermont, mother born Mi wife: Agnes? Wiswell--born June 1876 in Mi,father born NY, mother born Ohio children: James Wiswell--born Jan. 1898 b. Mi, both parents b. Mi Francis Wiswell--daughter--born Sept. 1899 in Mi, both parents b. Mi
In next dwelling #10 are: O--- Wiswell, born July 1833 in Vermont, father born Mass., mother born Mass. wife-- Francis? Wiswell, born June 1838 in Mi, both parents born NY.
I hope this is useful to you!The Dodges also originally came from Mass and VT--I just wonder if they knew each other, there also.Lillie Dodge was dau. of Nebraska Dodge--have him traced back to Richard Dodge-in Ma in 1600's.Lillie's mother was Mary Alice Miller of probably Ferry area, but haven't gotten past her!
