Those pesky brickwalls, where would genealogists be without them? I have no idea who Daniel Fenn's parents are. I recently attended a workshop and one of the suggestions was to create a timeline to help solve brickwalls. You can use the timeline to see where there are gaps in your research and make a plan of what research is needed and where to go next. Here is my timeline for Daniel Fenn.
Age Date Event
0 1787 Birth: Vermont, USA
21 28 Feb 1808 Marriage: Huldah Rowley; Shoreham, Addison, Vt
27 Apr-May 1814 Military: Vermont Militia
33 1820 Census: Shoreham, Addison, Vermont
43 1830 Census: Shoreham, Addison, Vermont
46 1833 Residence: Washtenaw County, Michigan
48 14 Oct 1835 Property: Washtenaw County, Michigan
49 8 Mar 1836 Death: Chelsea, Washtenaw, Michigan
The biggest gap in my timeline is from his birth in 1787 to his marriage in 1808. I need to find definitive proof of Daniel's birth. One unsourced tree has his birth as Pittsford, Vermont. So, I need to concentrate my research on Vermont. I will keep you posted on what I find out. If any Fenn researchers are reading this, please contact me. We can compare notes.
