Can anyone tell my anything about Woolvins (sp?) who went from New York to Michigan?
On the 1860 census there's an Albert Woolvin, age 16, b.NY, living with Benjamin and Sally Hall Gamber.There's also a Sarah Woolvin living with Lancey and Elizabeth Weston, all in Macomb county, Michigan.The Westons are related to the Gambers through their children marrying.Both the Gambers and Halls (not sure about the Westons) came from Ontario county, New York to Macomb county, Michigan.Related families are Cole, Briggs, Crittenden, Stroup, Conklin.
This may be Albert and Sarah's family: 1850 census, Phelps, Ontario county, New York: Michael Woolven, 31, laborer, Mahala ", 32, James ", 9, Albert ", 7, Sarah M. ", 3, George W? ", 2, Next door is a William age 61 and Elizabeth age 55 Woolven.
I'm trying to find out why these Woolvin kids were sent to Michigan.Possibly after their parents deaths?
