Sleights--England & Michigan
I am looking for the descendants of Henry Sleight, born 1823 in Hemswell, Lincolnshire.He married at least twice--first to Mary Baxter, second to Elizabeth Lawman.Both wives died in England.
Children include (but not limited to): *Charles James, Henry, *Sarah (md a Cordon), Baxter, *George (possibly one person--George Baxter), Mary Ann, +Fanny, *William, *Emma, *Frederick (ours), and +Francis.Those with * immigrated to the USA.Those with + died in England.
Fred Sleight married Musa D. Havens and had Hellen, Foster Frederick, and Stella (again, ours).Hellen married a Sonderman and had (at least) 5 children, Foster had at least 3 boys.Stella married a Wible and had 3 girls.
The families immigrated from Liverpool to Philadelphia (most in 1884) and moved to Michigan.They are found in Grand Traverse, Crawford, and Jackson Counties.Fred's family then moved to Washington state in the early 1900's.
Would love to correspond with anyone from this family.
