Wow, thanks for the help!

How did you connect Lucy's brother's to her? I had a feeling that Oliver and George were Lucy's brothers, but never found them in a census. I had Lucy's obit, which is how I knew her parents names, but it didn't list any brother's.

It is good to know the census didn't always have the right birth place. It confused me that the obit said Hammond and all her census said Canada. I thought maybe Canada was correct, because Lucy's son Jesse had gotten married in Canada.

I had also thought that Nicholas may be the true relative and not Betsy.

I have not forgotten about Evelyn Streeter, her father was Floyd I think. I am going to look over old family letter's today to see if Floyd was in my line.

Thanks so much for the brother's, this helps with Betsy's nine kids she had on later census.

Again, I really appreciate your help!
