- Welcome to the group, Cindy. I live in Michigan too. Ach, we all run into
those brick walls. *sigh* Why not tell who and when your brick wall is,
tell us what you do and/or don't know about him/her and maybe someone in
the group will have some pointers for you and maybe even connect w/your family.

Robert EYRE b: 30 Jan 1649 (who knows where FOR SURE?), settled c 1682 in

My other "favorite" brick wall is Daniel CARR, b: c 1771 who knows where,
showed up md: to Amy/Rachel HADSELL a few days prior to the 1778 Wyoming
(PA) massacre, was taken prisoner by the Indians/British in a prelude to
the massacre and was held prisoner for 7 years. Did he escape after 7
years, was he traded or released after 7 years? He did return to his
"family" but the only two children we know of are James Hadsell CARR b:
1790 and Daniel CARR b: 1795. Both having been b: after his return from
captivity. Ole Daniel is another who has baffled CARR researchers for
Both of these men have multiple long time family researchers and they just
are NOT giving up the information we crave.
