Part 688p – Smith Groh Genealogy – The Mystery of Brayton C. Placeway – You Never Know What You May Find

17 May 2012

Good Day,

You never know what you may find when you walk down the path into the lives of one’s ancestors. And this is Genealogy…

I stumbled upon a somewhat gruesome headline on GenealogyBank while I was doing my search for articles and details of ggg-grandfather Brayton C. Placeway. Here is the headline –

Published in the 8 February 1915 edition of the Jackson Citizen Press, in Jackson, Michigan, and in the section News of Michigan, I was a wee bit dumbfounded on how this Detroit byline could be attributed in any way to ggg-grandfather Brayton.

And as I read I was amazed at the incident was over $2.00… And then I read that the police officer, albeit Patrolman, was ggg-grandfather Brayton’s twin brother, ggg-granduncle Clayton Placeway.

Relish the article…

One never knows what type of skeleton is lurking in those far distant ancestors’ closets.
