Neff/Garner Family...

Oh boy does genealogy have anything to do with LUCK? I think so. I was just playing around and trying to get my sources all in line, so I went to http://www.familysearch.org/ It said James G. Neff born in Michigan married Hattie Gainer on 03 July 1880 in Dryden, Lapeer County, Michigan.

Ok, Dryden is where Mary, Harriet, Albert lived with Mortimer Hilliker in 1870 all with the last name Hilliker. So I went looking in the 1880 census; Albert is with Alfred in NY and I found a Harriet Gainer (Garver) in Hart, Oceana County, MI (which is on the other side of the state from Lapeer) living in the County Poor Farm. I don't know if this is my Harriet or not, where Harriet was from 1870 census and her marriage date of 3 July 1880 I don't know, and then from 1880 to 1900 I don't know where the family is other than Saginaw County.
This photo was found in an old Bible, that was Harriet (Garner) Neff's. The man sitting is James Gilbert Neff. The boys are Howard & Charles Neff, and I knew once who was who, because my grandma told me but now I can't remember and grandma is gone.
