I have copies of James Darwin Brocketts Pocket Diary from 1865 and 1864. The names I have mentioned were in there along with the dates, but I can not find any info on these people.Or should I say my family.
My Munson shows he was born in 1791 from what James Darwin wrote. James Darwin is my ggrandfather he was born 1841 in New York.

I also have in his diary a Melly Brockett. Not sure when he mentioned her if she was in New York or in Michigan. I have a copy of something I googled and she was in Michigan in 1892. I see here an Anna Brockett wrote something in a paper I just have her name and it posted in 1908.

Again any help you may have I really do appreciate it. I hope all this info I have put out here can help someone since I have been struggling with it and maybe people can help me.
