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.

Someone did a Census look-up for me. This is what I have from that. 1850 New York Cayuga Summerhill
Munson Brockett age 65 born in New York farmer
Susan age 60 born New York
Darwin age 8 born New York

Darwin (James Darwin)
American Civil War Soldier Record
Listed as Darwin Brockett
Enlisted may 1861
Served New York

Also someone found in the 1900 census
James D. Brocket (note spelling)
Northville, Wayne, MI
age 57
they have his birth date in 1842 instead of 1841
James Darwin Brockett passed in 1909
1900 census has him married to Lizzie Brockett
They have 5 kids and 4 are living.
Charles 1881
Earl 1884
May 1886
Inez 1893

The spellings I have are
Charles Lee
George Earl
Ethel Mae
Inez Irene

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.

Well I hope I answered everything you asked. I hope you can see where I am lost. I have been trying to put it together aleast abit of it and I can't even do that. 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.
Zoe thank you again for your time.
