Posts Tagged ‘New York’

I have just returned from my trip to Ontario, Quebec, parts of Michigan and New York.  Most of the trip did not add to the research of this specific blog.  However, is it possible that John Barclay came in through Canada to the United States?  I do see the Barclay name in Canada and in cemeteries.

So that is the reason I have not been posting on this blog for a while.  If you would like to see what my adventures were all about you can go to my two other blogs The Boardman and Browns and The Man Who Lived Airplanes.  See the right side of this blog for the links.

The majority of the trip is to dig deeper into my mother’s side of the family and visit the family history sites.  I never thought I would get very far in researching “Browns.” I have to give thanks to several cousins for their diligence.  I will spend my time in the southern part of Ontario.

Jefferson G. Dawes would make a big impact on Pine River.  At the request of Grace, George’s daughter, he was going to be involved in the Grand Jury proceedings for George’s death.  He would be the major of Pine River and he would marry Amarilla.

J.G. was born on 7 March 1847 in New York. Tracking him from that date to 1898 reveals nothing in the Minnesota census nor the U.S. Federal. Single men are hard to trace.  His parents were James Daws and Mary Ann [Sooderhaus].  I will share more about J.G. in a future post.
