Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an retired electrical engineer who got into family research a few years ago. Now am an adict on finding family history I live in Michigan, which itself is a font of history, and have found that my family were pioneers and have famous connections, much of which I hadn't known about. Taking pictures of headstones connected to the family has helped tidy up family relationships, since with the headstone dates, a person can go and look up old newspapers for more data. Along with some other sites like, findagrave is a nice way to leave some of that history to be found by others.

Elizabeth C Whitcomb -1854
I am totally confused-you have Elizabeth as a daughter of Asa and Hannah-but children for Elizabeth being born 1806 which is 2 years before Hannah was even born. There is a Barnett family history site-I have written to that site also to help figure this out-he has Elizabeth d/o Asa and Hannah as married to John Mathias Barnett not Jacob. I am very confused. There is another Elizabeth Barnett born 1829 which would fit with Asa and Hannah better-maybe the 2 Elizabeth just need to be swapped.
