Bobby & Sue Bates
I am trying to locate a branch of our family who apparently left the immediate area of the rest of the clan. Stephen Vanrennsaeler Bates and his wife Julia Ann (Call) had been residents of Jackson Co. prior to 1836 when they purchased land in Branch Co. I don't believe that they were there very long, because except for their daughter marrying a second cousin, there is no evidence of the rest of the family in the area. In 1872 Stephen is mentioned in connection with being one of the heirs of his deceased father. He died in 1892, so I guess the time frame that I am interested in would be prior to 1836 (he was b. 1814) and between 1872-92. I need to find out where this group disappeared to!!

Mary Jane THAYER appeared with son William, 14, in Jackson County Census of 1850. I believe this Mary Jane to have been the daughter of John EASLICK (b. 1793, NJ). She may have been a MUZZY previous to THAYER. Need to explore this connection further and determine what happened to husband William(?). Other names connected with EASLICK; ELLIS, PEAKE, NEAL, OSBORN, OLDS, CHASE, MCCRACKEN, HUNTOON, GLAZIER, SMITH-CUMMINGS, MUSCOTT, MILLER, PRINE, and others.

WILLIAMS, Looking for the family of Charles Henry WILLIAMS (First name could be Henry) who was living in Jackson, Michigan as of 1942. My understanding is he had two sons named Richard and Robert. Henry was married to Grace NOWAK. Charles Henry was the son of Charles WILLIAMS and Izora HOLCOMB. There is a possibility they moved to the Grand Rapids area sometime after 1942 but returned to the Jackson area. His wife , Grace, was last known to be in the Jackson area as late as 1987.

His mother died in 1918 in Brooklyn Mich. and his father died 1928 in Muncie, Indiana. However I understand that when his father died the family estate was settled by a banker in Brooklyn, Mich. and I wondered if Albert was notified from that area or perhaps went back to the family home at all. Mother is now 92 yrs. old and would like to know where her father died and when. I wondered if posting the name Smell might get some information for us.

HARRIS,David H. born in St. Lawrence Co., NEW YORK about 1815. He married Susan LaFONTAINE, a French Canadian, in 1849. Their children were: Louise, Lyman, Ellen, David J. and Judson. They left the Potsdam/Canton area in St. Lawrence Co., NY to move to MICHIGAN in the late 1860's. They were living in Springport, Jackson Co., Michigan when the Federal 1870 census was taken. Daughter Louise married Ashley Sawyer and went West ultimately settling in California. Judson is believed to have drowned in Jepp Lake (Calhoun Co.?) about 1873 around the age of nine but I can find no death record for him. Lyman can be found in Jackson Co. during the 1880 census and in Calhoun Co., during the 1920 Census. I would like to know what happened to David, wife Susan and daughter, Ellen. I can not find anything for them beyond the 1870 census. I would also like to know if Judson really drowned in Jepp Lake and more about Lyman. He evidently never married.
