Stuck on birth state
I have been doing my family from father back. When I reached Josiah Woodworth I found he listed in all the Michigan census that his birth state was N H, New Hampshire. His son, Alfred, listed his father's birth state as New York. I don't want to just run with what everyone else has put as his birth place, I want to enter the correct one. My great aunt Eleanor said her grandfather and father came to Michigan from New York and started a farm. She doesn't mention grandmother nor other siblings. Were they passed on from something? Any one with some real information please let me know.
