Surnames: Davenport in NY & MI
I am working on my husband's family tree. I have reached back to Benjamin B. Davenport b) 1824 NY, but now I am stuck at his parents.

Most others on Ancestry.com reflect Hezekiah D. Davenport & Nelly Badcock as his parents. I believe this is because Ancestry.com gives a death record for a Benjamin Davenport, that lists those as his parents names, however, my problem with that is 2 fold.

1 - There is a Frances J. Davenport that shows up a few times as living with Benjamin and his son, Stillman. I assumed she was Benjamin's mother but she could be an Aunt also. I had no way of knowing exactly who she was yet.

2 - Do we know for sure that the death record on Ancestry.com IS our Benjamin B. Davenport? I have no way of knowing that at this point.

Does anyone have the birth record of Benjamin B. Davenport, to confirm his parents? Benjamin's wife was Mary E. ?, also born in NY abt 1825. Also by looking at neighbors on the Census, it appears Benjamin may have brother's named: Warren Davenport 1823 NY, George Davenport 1826, & Anson Davenport 1836 NY?

Thanks,

Vicki Moss-Hall & Douglas K. Hall
