Re: Bisby Bisbee Brisby MA to CT to NY to MI
I am the Great Great grand daughter of Valentine Bisby.I can not confirm this information, I would just like to ask that if you do confirm any of this I would like to know.I have hunted for years to find this information.
Valentine lists his parents from Ireland on one Census and as being from born in Connecticut on all the restHe lists himself and being born in New York.Michigan marriage records show him marrying a Abigail Luce but my Great Grandfather's Elliott Hiram's death certificate lists her and Abigale Thorpe, so I don't know if she was married before or if his son Mark just didn't know when he filled out the death certificate information.
Asa Charles Bisby their son married and divorced in Michigan and stayed there.Cora Hubbard Bisby moved to Texas after the divorce and remarried.
Martha Rose Bisby married a Sears Shepard moved from Michigan to Rhode Island and then to Maine.Valentine moved with them after Abigail's death and died in Rhode Island.
Since there is a missing Census record I can't prove that there were other children but family legend says there was a David and Harry and I know for a fact that there was a Clarissa but she has been lost to me also.
