The biography for Sandra Peoples is empty. What can you add?
I have had great women before me research my family and I give them a huge thanks! What could have been a difficult tree to follow was well mapped by Cora Brown Beach, Alice Clark Brown and Elizabeth Wright of Burdick line. Elizabeth says there were those that she built upon and recieved letters from family. That was the way then. Cora also had the letters and Alice was first to take photos documenting life in MI and Wyoming. She was my grandmother and hundreds of people were at her funeral. I was too young to understand the vast amount of last names that showed up. If only I could have documented them all. I do have to say that James Emmerson Brown felt it was very necessary to document his lineage from his father Calvin James Brown to Allen Sage Jr and Allen Sage Sr. He connected Comfort Sage into this lineage that "people" today won't accept. He had it notarized and I know the name of the man that notarized it so it is a real document. My Aunt was the founder of the Wyoming DAR and SAR and being first generation in America since the revolution she found it hard to find a tree of non-loyalists. The whole bunch of them followed Joseph Brant north. I wish my father and I had traveled his past before he died. That would have been a great trip! Cora's sister Mabel (maggie Griffin) Brown was the head of the museum by the cemetery in Wyoming. She was a writer too (so was Cora) documenting so much and so much of it in someone elses hands. I was told the stories. The Sage line stayed in Michigan after those that died in Ontario Canada or Conn. My Comfort is not the Conn Comfort that fought the revolution. Ben Sage left Conn and took my line away from it. He was one of the founding children that were there and stayed there. My mothers side of the family were much easier to find as they didn't move as much and they came from a English past that set them apart. The two characteristics of her family is that they were told they were better than others and they had a natural talent for rubbing a nickle into a dime. This fit with everything back to England. The Wilson side did seem just like the Phillips Vaughns Bowmans etc...They all seemed a little more like the Beverly Hillbillies. 10-15 kids, crazy names of those times small homes living off the land, building mills and schools. My mom was raised in a victorian styled home with high backed beds and a maid named Albertie. But the depression hit the family hard. There is a street named after my mothers father in Monterey. I have so much to add and so many sources and photos. I don't have the time. I haven't been a very good daughter to my family tree. I hope to become better! My prayer to honor those before me.

Responding to your post: I don't know how to do the merge but we do have two family trees going for the Wilsons. Mine has more info and attachments that I don't want to lose.
Merging is easy. Click the button and you'll get side by side view of all data. You'll pick the pieces from both profiles that you want to keep.
Welcome to wikitree! Cari

Some of the records on Comfort are not my finds. I will have to go back in and review what records are there and if they are good. Thank you so much for bringing my attention to it.
