I was wondering anyone could tell me anything more about Oliver Bunce:
Birth 5 Jan 1799 in Liberty, Sullivan, New York, United States
Death 25 Sep 1879 in Jackson, Jackson, Michigan, United States
in going through all the census records back to 1850 I have worked out that he is my gggggrandfather on my Mothers side. My problem is I cant find any solid documentation of his life before the 1850 US Fed census. His birthdate and birth location seem to be listed on everyones public family trees but I was wondering how people figured this out. I'm also very interested in getting more information about his life before 1850.... for example, who were his parents?
Any additional info that you might have would be greatly appreciated!
