Time for Summer/Brick walls

Hello all... I've been really busy this winter. Ready for camping this summer... we've got a couple of family reunions already planned. For Marty's side, we have the Martin family campout in June & the Carsten family reunion in July. My family hasn't done a reunion in a long time. Would love to do a Vincent family reunion. But I did find that there is going to be an Aldrich one in July... that will be interesting! :)

Aldrich Brick Walls

ALDRICH/ALDRIGE/ALDRIDGE--AARON ALDRICH, b. Abt. 1810 in NY. Married Almira LOCKWOOD bef. 1835 prob. in NY. Children: George William, Susan, & Anna. George m. Arabella HAMILL in St. Charles, Saginaw County, MI; Susan m._____ALBACH of West Milbrook; Anna m._____CORNELL of Washington.

ARABELLA HAMILL (Photo to the right is Arabella, can't remember where I got it from or who); b. August 14, 1850 in Lansing, MI. Married George ALDRICH on February 18, 1866 in St. Charles, Saginaw County, MI. d. August 07, 1920 in Pontiac, MI. Her parents were William D. & Triphena Arabella [MORTON] HAMILL. However she was adopted. Her real name was Faith Charity. There was also a little boy that was adopted by William & Triphena. Would like info on both her adopted family and her biological family.

ALMIRA (or ELMIRA LOCKWOOD), b. March 04, 1823 in NY. Married (1) Aaron ALDRICH/ALDRIGE/ALDRIDGE Bef. 1835 prob. in NY. Married (2) William CRAIG in Michigan. d. June 28, 1901 in Corunna, Shiawassee County, MI. Death Record in Shiawassee County Court House says her parents were Mr. DOGE of Corunna and Unknown. But the 1850 Sharon, Washtenaw County, MI census says that Mary LOCKWOOD lived with Aaron & Almira ALDRIGE at the age of 50 being born in NY. The 1860 of St. Charles, Saginaw County, MI census say Mary LOCKWOOD lived with William & Almira CRAIG at the age of 63 being born in NY. Any information on the parentage of Almira/Elmira or Mary LOCKWOOD would be appreciated.
