Does anyone have any info on Alanson Daggett. I now believe he was born in New York state about 1804. He may have gone to Canada then returned to USA about 1837 settling in the Harbor Beach area of Michigan. At that time it was called Sand Beach.
He married Elizabeth Wallace of Toronto.
Thanks for any help.

First cousin

Hi Ray

You and I have a common ancestor in Alanson Daggett. He gives Chester, Rockingham County as his birthplace on the 1850 Michigan Census. On the 1860 Michigan Census, his son John Wallace Daggett says his father was born in Maine. His death certificate says birthplace YORK. I don't know if that means New York state or YORK county somewhere. Possibly Maine. It could also mean Toronto Canada as Toronto was known as YORK back

He married Elizabeth Wallace of Canada in Lewiston TP. Niagara County NY in 1831.

In 1840 Michigan census he is in Clay Twp. St Clair county Michigan. In 1850 he is in Sand Beach (later named Harbor Beach) in Huron County MI.

He came to Michigan with John Allen to start a saw mill in the Sand Beach area. I have found reference at the Church of Latter Day Saints that Alanson and John Daggett came to the Sand Beach area. This could be a misprint meaning John Allen, or there could be a John Daggett who is related to Alanson.
I have had no luck tracing Alanson's parents.

According to Geo and Sydney Daggett's supplment: From his Civil War Pension record, he says is is born in Rockingham Co., NH, yet a search of the 1800 and 1810 census of Rockingham Col. shows no Daggetts. Researching the deed records for that period again shows NO Daggetts. The fact that he was md. in Lewistson, NY, a Great Lakes Seaport in 1831 (no records there either), to E. Wallace led previous researchers to believe that E. may have been working in Lewiston -- across the lake -- and that he may have been a seaman. When he entered the Civil War, he entered as a seaman, landing in Sand Beach. Each census taken shows him giving a birthplace as NH, but the 1870 census shows hi son John Wallace Daggett saying that his father was born in MAINE. That leads GS to believe that he was of the MAINE family, simply travelling through NH at the time of birth. They scanned the 1800 census trying to see if there was a marriageable male who doesn't appear in the 1820 cnesus of ME, and may have left the state prior to 1804. They had no luck.
The supplement begins with Alanson on p. 533. There is also reference to an Alanson C

Thanks for your reply. I have all the Daggett books and so have that same information. Unfortunately I can't hook Alanson up with a previous generation.

I'm having the same difficulty with Samuel, which you'll find the addendum. Someone did kindly alert me to a copy of his marriage license in Vermillion County, IL, despite the Supplement's indication that they found no more record of them in Illinois, so there IS more info out there on these loose ends...Best of luck.

Ebenezer Daggett born 1792 Worcestershire, Mass. m. Phoebe Blood daughter Phoebe Daggett b. 1814 Mass m. Moses Bumb. There is some question about the Ebenezer Daggett. Might he have been Langdon? My family history says that Phoebe Daggett Bump's parents were Daggett and Blood and I have been trying to wing it from there. I have pictures of Phoebe and Moses. Any connection to your Daggetts?
