WoW1 alot of info. I did find yesterday Jessies marriage in pt Huron,Mich. i also came across a listing of people buried in Riverview cemetery,Wallaceburg,Kent co. This is where Jessies mom is buried(Rhoda(Harris)Brown who died in 1891 after childbirth. In that cemetey is a Daniel Eberts and a "Rose" Eberts. I also cem across a death notice for Daniels dad, Joseph Eberts(died Wallaceburg april 28 1927) and it list his children:
mrs Frank Delorme
mrs William Taylor
i also came across a 1936 mariage notice for a child of Alan(Allen)Eberts listed in the St. Thomas newspaper. I found Jessie and daniel living with his parents(Joseph-Henrietta) in the 1901 and 1911 Wallaceburg,Kent co census. It appears Daniel-Jessie didnt have any children? at least at that time funny part is i did find a Thomas McLean, grandson living with Jessies dad(Albert Brown) in wallaceburg in the 1901 census. I have to beleive one of Alberts daughters marrried some relation of Joseph Eberts wife(Henrietta McLean). Trouble is, Albert Browns daughters(some) appear to have gone by differnt first names when they married? or they mostly married in Michigan?(except for Ethel lilly Brown)married david Cooper, march 3 1898 lambton co..and mary Brown married John T. Martin dec 24 1889 wallaceburg, Kent co.

I am looking into Henrietta Mclean and Joseph Eberts. Particularly Joseph of Mt Clemens. I can't find his father Thomas Eberts or mother Mary Elizabeth Chamberlain in Michigan. Do you have any information about them? I have Allen McLean and Mary McDonald as parents of Henrietta. Their marrige of Aug 17 1870 in Marine City Michigan states their names.

I don't, but I thought Thomas Eberts, father of Jos., married Camilla Martell? That's what I have. Not helping much.
