Happy 223rd Birthday, Aunt Esther!

My Great Great Great Grandaunt, Esther Botsford was born 223 years ago in Salisbury, Connecticut, to Simeon and Esther Clark Botsford, my Great Great Great Great Grandparents.  Simeon was the ½ brother of Lemuel Botsford, the father of Milton Clarence Botsford [The Botsford Inn and Clarenceville renoun).

Aunt Esther was the third in birth order and the older sister of my Great Great Great Grandmother Almira Botsford who would late marry Morris Jenks.    Along with the rest of her family, 2 parents and 11 children, the migration to Oakland Country, Michigan took place in the early 1820s.  Esther married Martin Shepherd on 23 August 1828 in Oakland County.  The pair were the parents of four children, all born in Oakland County: Orden (1829), Emily (1831), Sidney (abt 1832), and Carlos (abt 1833).    Aunt Esther died in 1873 in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan, and is buried in the Southfield Cemetery there.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
