On this document (dated December 7, 1867) the guardian of the minor children of Elisha Wells stated that she was appointed guardian under the name of Lucinda Johnson; however, that was in error. At the time her surname was Wells, not Johnson, and that she was never married to Johnson. Since her appointment as guardian, she intermarried with John Halpin and her name is now Lucinda Halpin.

Not related, just a Lapeer County story of interest to me.
