Earliest Known Ancestor Jacob Halstead
They were from Harrow, Ontario, Canada
Born about 1769 in Pittstown, Rensellor, NY
Jacob Halstead was my Great, great, great grandfather and was a farmer and I understand a barber in Brownstown Twp., MI. during the 1850 (could have been earlier) to the time of his death in 1877. He migrated to Canada probably during the American Revelution, but came over to Brownstown, Michigan to live. Several other members of the family migrated to Brownstown also. I'm not sure who came first. We haven't been able to find out where he is buried.
Perhaps you can help. There is a statement that we can not prove and that is he was 108 years old when he died. Any information you can get us would be appreciated. Also, can I join the Downriver Genealogical Society using a credit card? Thanks, Christine Johnson
