Message Board Post:
I too am trying to see if my family is connected to the basket weavers in the Taghkanic
area. I see your login is davistree...which is sort of interesting as my maiden name is
Davis. I am going to request the Wetherbee book on the bushwackers as that book has a list
of the family names (I think). My family were NY state basket makers from the late
1700's on to the 1920 census. Family names Jump (originally from Conn.) and then 2
other basket maker families Sellick and Dan. Not sure which one I'm connected to yet.
I believe that if you are related to the Propers then you are of the Taghkanic lineage.
Let you know what I find if you'd like.
Loree Davis Jackson
