I'm looking for information on Botsfords from Comstock, Kalamazoo, Michigan. This is where my grandmother was born. Her maiden name is Botsford. If anyone would like to help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Do you have a record of when Ethel Elizabeth Botsford and Cutting Wiley divorced? I can't seem to find that anywhere.

I don't have that information. In the Botsford - Line of Samuel Genealogy, the only further information is that they had a child Robert Forydic Wiley (spelled "Willy" in the Genealogy) who married Peggy Johnson in August of 1967. Peggy was born 09 Dec 1949. The information came from Dorothy Estelle Botsford 18 Oct 1967 Kalamazoo, MI to Marion Weatherill (Genealogist for the Botsford Family Historical Association in Milford, Connecticut)

Do you have any idea if that is as current as the information gets?

This Genealogy was printed in 1991. I cannot go further ahead, but the genealogy goes back 8 generations from Clyde Phelps Botsford, Line of Samuel.

Surnames: Botsford, Dingman, Anglin

I have a question for anyone researching the Botsford line. According to my research Winifred Effie Botsford born December 16, 1905 married Paul J. Anglin and had a son Charles born in 1939. She is in the 1930 census with the middle initial E working as a school teacher, which I know she was, as I knew her son quite well. I also know she was related to a Dingman, so I am quite sure I have the right person. Why does her tombstone say she is Winifred I (not E) Anglin? She is also listed in several city directories as (I).
