  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Joanne Lahr-Kreischer to Weldon Whipple, 7 Apr 1999.

      !SOURCE: Email from Lucinda Carter Kitchen Baublis (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 8 Jul 2005. Adds birth and death dates and burial place. Also gives names of parents. Regarding Dorcas, Lucinda writes:
      Dorcas was previously married too, but I am not sure what the name was. The family Bible had "Dorcas S Lyon (french) " I have searched the name French (including at Oakland County Court House) and have talked to many people in the French family and they say that they have no record of Dorcas being married to a Mr French. Therefore, I have to assume that the name was french in orgin, hence the name Crosset? (I also have the Lyon family back to the ship The Lyon, probably the Winthrop Fleet so she was not french) They are probably the same person although I have found almost no proof of this. The 1870 Census has Dorcas Crosset 27 and the age for Dorcas Lyon would be the same. I think they lived together for a while before they married.


      !FATHER: "The 1860 census shows her living with her uncle Phineas Lyon and many people think he was her father. I mention this because there are several Dorcas Lyon's also." --L.C.K. Baublis
