Hotchkiss, Lee, Munn, Tilden and Other Related Families. – update

Well, I have made it through 80 pages of the manuscript. So far, I have only a small glimpse as to how these families hang together. OK, I know the connections between the Hotchkiss, Lee, and Munn families, but I am still waiting for the Tilden link-in,

But, today, I was reviewing and transcribing the text relating to my Great-Great-Great Grandfather, Horatio Lee, and discovered a number of things. As a youth, he and some friends built a raft and sailed it down the Allegany River to the Ohio River to the Mississippi River and ended up in New Orleans. They sold the raft and got just about enough money to get back home to New York. He came to Michigan twice. The first time with his brother and his brother’s wife. They came overland in Canada. He then returned to New York, married Great Great Great Grandmother, Hannah Munn, and then took the Erie canal to Buffalo, got aboard a sailing ship and arrived in Detroit. Then, during the Toledo War, he was called up to serve by the Michigan Governor. And Toledo went to Ohio and Michigan got the Upper Peninsula – you are welcome UPers.
