I have been researching Michael James Hearst my grgrgrandfather. I recently found his obituary from 1921 San Francisco. In this obit I learned that he was born in Sullivan County, New York. I never knew where he was born in NY and hoped that this would help me learn more about him. Any suggestions on how I can find more about this man? He moved to CA in the mid 1880's but I find no trace of him before that time. He married Catherine Fitch about 1878 probably in NY and their first son William was born in NY in 1880.
