NAME: Carolyn Fitzpatrick

I am looking for info about Jesse Spaulding Fitzpatrick born 1860 in KY. I have found out that Laura Bell Price Fitzpatrick married Frank Salmon in 1909 or 1910 in Antrim Co. and I don't know if they had any children. Then she married Floyd Tennery after that so I guess info about those men would be of help to me also. I do appreciate your help. Carolyn Fitzpatrick

NAME: Lynne Davey Lee

I am just beginning to do geneological seaches. I am checking your site because I know that my great grandfather Franklin DAVEY lived in Ellsworth MI, had a livery stable, cherry orchards and I believe a grocery store. I do not know his wifes name, but I know that he had one child, a son in January 1893 (Harry). I also know that Franklin's father was named George R. Davey and lived in Calhoun County when he joined the Civil War. However, knowing this I cannot find references to any of the Davey family in Antrim county. All of these people seemed to have just disapeared off the face of the earth without a trace. I am sure I just do not know how to pick up the trace and am looking for suggestions. Anything you could offer I would be grateful to receive
