For several years I have been attempting to discover the parents of Aden BURT, born about 1792, who lived in Washington Township (Romeo) and of James LESLIE ( of the same area).
Aden BURT and James LESLIE supposedly arrived about 1834. Both came from the east; Aden from New York and James from Vermont. Any tips would be appreciated.
In addition to BURT and LESLIE, I also have STARKWEATHER and LOCKE as Macomb County, Michigan families. Researcher's Home Page

A few months back someone posted a message on the Genweb page for
Warren County, NJ, stating that "there are many Warren County
emigrants (sic) buried in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery, Macomb County, MI,
As I am attempting to trace the Metz families of Warren Co, NJ and
Northampton Co, PA (just across the Delaware River from each other),
this posting has made me quite curious. I haven't even seen a
listing for a Mt. Vernon Cemetery in Macomb County. Is there one?
And is there a METZ researcher in Macomb who has information about
the Warren County migrants? I have much about their early
generations and will share.

Would like to exchange information with other family members regarding Richard BUTLER, his son, Milton Hayes Butler
(First married to Elizabeth GRIGGS) and my great-grandfather,
William Griggs Butler of Clinton Township, Macomb County. Richard Butler was a
judge and the County Clerk for Macomb County. Milton married for a second time and a
third time and his wife died in childbirth but the child survived. The last information
I have regarding my great grandfather William Griggs Butler was that in 1900, he was living
in Detroit and was a cigar manufacturer and was divorced from Della Wells Butler. He had two children,
Elizabeth Wells Butler and Harry C Butler. I do not know what happened to Harry but can provide information
on my grandmother, Elizabeth. I also have two portraits that may be of the Butler family.

NAME: Megan Lyle
My ancestors, Thomas and Jeanette/Janet (WALKER) LYLE married in Ayr, Scotland in 1851. They immediately immigrated to America and their first daughter, Jeannette/Jennett/Janet W., was b in Macomb Co Sept 1851. Their sons, James W, William W., George S. and Robert, were born in either [unknown twp], Macomb Co or Berlin twp, St Clair, MI in the 1850s or early 1860s. They w:ere Church of Scotland or Presbyterian. They appear in the Berlin twp, St Clair 1860 census but had moved to Lapeer co by 1870.
I wonder if anyone have any ideas on how to go about finding church records in these two counties as I think this is my only way to find their christenings and thus their birth information. I have already searched Lapeer Co marriage and death sources which have yielded these clues. Any newspapers announcing births? Any ideas you can think of would be appreciated.
