I am looking for information on a John Letson Sergent (Sargent, Sarjant, Sergeant, etc.) born in 1823. Place of b. unknown, but oral history has East Coast, parents, unk., trained to be a physician in Indiana, and then moved to Chicage to practice. It looks like there may be connections if the "John Letson" part of name preserves mother's line.

We are not related to a Letson, but a few years ago my husband and I were doing research on his family tree in the state of Indiana--in the process of xeroxing info in the genealogy dept of the library we inadvertantly ended up with other names on the pages....I'm not sure what the title of the book was, but here's the info about John Burns/Mary E. Letson...."John Burns was born, January 14,1814, at Utica, N.Y. His wife, Mary E. Letson, was born, September 29, 1820, in Orleans County, N.Y. Early in the thirties, they removed to Oakland County, Mich. In the spring, John came to Indiana, entered his farm in Section 29, built a cabin, and the following year brought his family. No remarkable events or wonderful occurrences have marked his life. It has been the hard and laborious life of whose best days were surrounded by privation and care, whose house was full of children; but it has been the life of the "noblest work of God---an honest man," and his life has been useful to his fellow-man. In church and in community, John Burns was never an unknown quantity. Mrs. Burns deceased September 17, 1875. The children of these are Julia, Ann, Justus, Lovina, Abram, Maria, Rufus, Hannah, Ellen, Jane. Mr. Burns survives, hale and hearty for a man of his years."
Obviously it was an old Bio book of the area settlers that we copied the text from. Hope this info adds to your searchs.
