I saw your post about your family history and we have some parralel links. I woundered what the connection was from Henry Tompkins Comstock of the Comstock Load Mine was to that of "Buffalo BILL "William Comstock who was also related to you.
Henry Comstock was born in Canada (Up here with me) and traveled to Cooperstown NY often. William Coopers mother was the Niece of James Fenimore Cooper of that same town. (William was not part Cherokee he was part Mohegan Indian) There MUST have been a connection and if you have it I would appreciate the file.
I will give you the Mohegan connection in return.
While I was searching this message base I saw a Comstock connection to a CODY from New York daughter of a Col. Cody. Could it be that William Cody was related to Buffalo Bill? Lets look into this, I have a Photograph of Buffalo Bill Cody and Sittling Bull taken by Atwell and Burk. (They are available on EBAY.com )So we have a few connections.
Please tell me How Henry Comstock (Loade) was related to William (Ace of Scouts) Comstock.
