In 2002, I received some information to the effect that Lina's parents were Isaac and Orrianche and posted this report on this forum. Since then, I found a death record, June 7, 1867 in Berkshire county, MA, for Lina Race Markham which stated that her parents were James and Gertrude. I have searched for a James Race and Gertrude and, so far, have come up empty. She was baptized October 19, 1789 in Egremont, Berkshire, MA. She married my relative, John Benjamin Markham, about 1807 either in NY, CT, or MA. They lived in Berkshire County in the 1850 census and she continued living there in the 1860 census with her son Thomas. I would really appreciate any clarity on this situation.
