I just got back to Michigan from Senaca County, New York. I spent Thursday afternoon at the "Interlaken Public Library" looking for information on the Ovenshire family. I didn't have much luck finding evidence of how my Almira Ovenshire, (father Charles Ovenshire), got from Yates County to Seneca County. It is difficult trying to piece this family together. Thanks to Nancy Obenchain we are all better off finding our roots. My Ovenshire family went from Yates County, N.Y. to Seneca County, N.Y. to Lenawee County, Eaton County, Oakland County, Macolmb County, Michigan and some going to Charlevoix County, Michigan. I went to Charlevoix a few weekends ago, to Brookside Cemetery. I found some Comptons and some Osburns there. My notebooks are overflowing but, I still want more information. Just wanted to say hello to all my family. Any bits of where to look for real information would be helpful. Hope to hear from any Ovenshire!!!
I visit Ithaca, New York several times a year. If anyone would give me directions from there I would be happy to try to help you out. Sheshequin, Pa. is not far from there as well as Penn Yann. Barrington, etc. It would benefit me as well as you. E-mail me with a request!
