I wonder if thisWm Brown may be related --his father I think came fromMassand lived with his g son in Chittenden VT
alsofound out that malinda's death cert states her parents asLemuel Brown andaura bessy.
thro the yearsmy cousin & I haven't been able to find out her parents,
I found a samuel bessey in 1815 in vt marr Harriet Huntington and they moved to walker kent co mi
I have a g sonwho is going with a Bessey...isn't that soemthing --to show up again yrs later.--another bessey.
I've tried totrace her lineage & got to Cadillac mi -area.
Our govtook ancestryfrom our libraries so is harder totrace.
Did you ever get in contact with Homer Thiel? he had some
No Wm & Ann aren't the ones--but he could be related to mybrown sidebeing he marr a bessey also.
the only one who h ad aura bessy wasdau amantha ireland death cert..the other children stated father onlyexcept formalinda --states her parents are lemuel brown and aura bessy.
this is a hard case!!! let me know if you have reached anotherdecision on this..
good to see you back
