HOW OL' MYRT FOUND INFO ABOUT HER ANCESTOR
---------------------------------------------------------
1. Searching Ancestry.com, I found the following entry concerning my step-mother's eldest known ancestor, William HAZ(Z)ARD who married Cassandra Coan in 1823. They lived in St. Joseph Michigan, and he died in 1878 in Mendon, Michigan, and was buried in the Pioneer Cemetery near Centreville, St. Joseph, Michigan.

-- Name: William Hazard
-- Birth Date: 1798
-- Birthplace: Massachusetts
-- Volume: 76

WHAT Ol' MYRT RECEIVED
---------------------------------------------------------
The wonderful volunteers at the Godfrey promptly sent a 4-page photocopy with information as follows:

-- A Posting 21 Aug 1918 published in the BOSTON TRANSCRIPT where a researcher is inquiring about the possible father of William HAZZARD.

-- A Reply 3 Sep 1918 published in the BOSTON TRANSCRIPT from another researcher referencing the Russell, Massachusetts vital records of birth, including William and his siblings, all children of James and Sally HAZZARD. The reply also distinguishes other HAZZARD families from the one in question.

-- There is also a reference to the HAZZARDS living in Connecticut prior to living in Russell.
NOW isn't that just the sort of information Ol' Myrt here needs to keep climbing the HAZZARD family tree?

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
