And my genealogy hunt continues to understand the life and times of ggg-grandfather Brayton C. Placeway... and continues.
Last night I stumbled across, through Genealogy Bank, a couple of articles, actually minuscule notices from a couple of newspapers. All-things-being-equal they each had to have something to do with ggg-grandfather Brayton.
The first is from the 19 July 1906 issue of the Pinckney Dispatch.
A couple of facts can be extrapolated from the news note. This include:
1. Pinckney, Michigan is where ggg-grandfather Brayton and his twin brother, ggg-granduncle Clayton were born.
2. GGGG-Grandfather William Placeway did not pass away, as yet, until 1911, when he was visiting one of his daughters in Iowa.
My question - What was ggg-grandfather Brayton C. Placeway doing in Detroit? Guess I'll have to keep searching and research more documents and data bits.
Social notes from city and town newspapers are sometimes a great place to find a small detail(s) of an ancestor's life.
Please contact me if you have any thoughts, ideas, issues, comments, and questions.
