married or not. He died 13 August 1932 (place unknown). His wife was Belle
LEACH JOHNSON. They were married 2 July 1874 in Ohio, place unknown). Would
like any information on this uncle. Thanks.

Seek any information on Uriah and/or George J. POTTER, sons of Jacob
(1785-1853) and Charity W. Potter (1786-1869). Uriah was born in 1813/14,
and George was probably born between 1805 and 1813. They were born in NY
State most likely in the Herkimer/Montgomery counties area. In 1845 Uriah
was in Genesee Co. NY, but in 1860 Uriah and George were listed in the
estate settlement of their father, who died in NY, as living somewhere in
Michigan. Between 1830 and 1845, one or both may have lived in PA, but this
is not certain. Known siblings are James, Joseph, Jacob Jr., Mariah FURMAN,
Betsey FULMER, Catherine JONES and Roxaline WALWORTH. Thank you, Ed Harrison

I would like to correspond with anyone who is working on the THATCHER,
TOBIAS or COTTON lines from New York or Michigan. Maybe even Canada. I have
been trying to link a Lennis Thatcher to his parents. From his death
certificate they are listed as Catharine Tobias and Henry Thatcher from NY.
Catharine was born July 4 1812 in NY to a Tobias married to a Cotton. Over
the years I have collected lots of information on these families but still
can't connect them. My Lennis Meron Thatcher first shows up in Lenawee Co.
in the 1860 census where he married Sarah Hare. I have found him also in
Inghram, Jackson, Washtenaw and Tuscola Co. where he died Oct. 6, 1908. Any
help I receive would be appreciatied.

RUSO posted by
Jemi on Wednesday, January
I'm searching for the parents of Theoplilus RUSO. He was born in Mi abt
1841 to parents that were foreign born. (We've always been told French but
it could be French-Canadian) We know he lived in Leonia, Jackson Co., Mi at
25 when he joined the 2nd Michigan Cavalry, Company "I". He was sent to
Kirkville, Ms. where he was wounded at the battle of Tupelo. When the Union
officers left, they had to leave their wounded. He found a sympathetic
family who helped him and later married the daughter. He was considered a
deserter because he could not retreat with his officers. Then the war was
over before he recovered. Later he married Sarah Stone and moved to AL to
raise their family. A 80 year old woman named Martha was living with them.
(We assume it was his mother,) Is there any way to find out if there was a
Ruso (he could read but not write) maybe with a french spelling that lived
close and had a woman named Martha? I would appreciate any help you could
give me, Jemi
