I have contacted the Oakland County county clerk’s office to try to find out about this “marriage.” Yes, I am now indeed talking smack about my own ancestors. But I figure that Luke Phillips has had his chance to show up and straighten this nonsense out.
I’ve gotten weird woo-woo crap from the Demunbreuns and they don’t even know me.
But I can’t even get a sign or portent from my own dead relatives?
I tell you, ancestors.
But I did get to read a charming recount by an early settler of a trip he took where he basically walked from Detroit to what would be Chicago, taking a route that seems roughly analogous to State Road 12, and he was attacked by “prairie wolves” which he said looked like foxes, but meaner, and he tried to fool his aunt and uncle who were living out on the prairie, but they recognized him. The most interesting part, though, is that he stayed with some missionaries and then later stayed with some Indians and he asked the Indians about Christianity and they all told him that they really liked the missionaries, but they felt like there was nothing good in the coming of Christianity for them. I thought that was pretty astute.
