Hi - I am looking for information about my gg-grandfather and
Christopher FOLLETT; b 1847, Germany; d 1883, Flint Michigan; buried
St. Joseph's Cemetery, Batavia, NY
Elizabeth ENGLE FOLLETT; b 1848, Rochester, NY; d 1926, Rochester, NY,
buried next to Christopher
Children: Edward (1869-1949), John (1872 born in Sheldon, Wyoming
County, NY-1947), Frank (1874-1905),
Mary (1876-1950), Lawrence (1879-1954) Herman (1882-1936)
Christopher immigrated to Batavia, NY about 1854, fought in the Civil
War [I have both his military record and pension file], married
Elizabeth on 19 Jan 1869 at the St. Cecelia Church in at Sheldon, NY,
lived in Sheldon for a couple of years, moved to Michigan about 1870-1,
died 1883 in Flint, MI. The family returned to Batavia, NY after his death.
Christopher's brothers and sister are: Edward (1842-1918), Herman
(1850-1929), Katherine (1844-1945). They lived in the
Batavia/Rochester, NY area during their lives.
Elizabeth's parents were John Engle [or Englebert] (b1833?-d?) and Mary
Kibler (b1831?-d1890?). They may have been in Sheldon when she met
Christopher. I also believe she may have visited her parents in 1872
when my g-grandfather John was born.
Christopher's parents were Andrew Follett (b?-d?) and Regina Bruster (b?-d?)
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks - Dick Follett
