I noticed your message regarding David Carithers. Do your have the names of his siblings or children? Some of my Carithers ancestors eventually settled in Indiana - Joshua, Susanna, David, and I think maybe a James. I do not know their father's first name, although my grandmother in her elderly years, told my sister that his name was James.(???) I believe they were in SW Virginia/NE Tennessee area because some of the children were married in that area. There were also supposedly a Rebecca and a William. John married Joanna Roberts, Margaret married Hiram Gardner, Susanna married Ancil Bright, Joshua married Nancy Mercer in Ohio and David married Elizabeth Phillips. The BIG question is: Who were these children's parents???
I see you live in Waterford, MI. I live in Royal Oak, MI.
Would like to know if we are connected.
