WOW Wendy! This is just the sort of thing I was hoping for! YES, I will be awaiting you next communication:-)
Here is another question:
On the MI Death Notice for Benjamin Davenport, it cites his death as 24 Sept 1873 in Lee, Calhoun, MI & his parents as Hezakiah Davenport & Nellie Davenport.
There are other people on Ancestry.com with Benjamin in their tree that cite Hezekiah D. Davenport as father with his dates either 1765-1832 OR 1805-1850 & a Nelly Badcock 1803-1848 as his mother.
You said Hezekiah & Frances J Clark were Benjamin's parents. That explains who the Frances J. Davenport was that was living with Benjamin & his son, Stillman, it was Benjamin's mother.
How do you think some many others show Nelly Badcock as his mother? Maybe Frances J. goes by Nellie; maybe she was a Clark at birth; then married a Badcock, then married a Davenport??
I would love to have a copy of anything you have on Hezekiah!
