Ancestors of Carrie (Harris) More Clark, Part One

Carrie Harris married Charles Austin More in Lapeer County, Michigan. Charles More was the brother of my great-grandmother, Addie More Powers.

Lineage of Carrie Harris:
Parents: Jacob Gardner Harris & Huldah Brooks
Grandparents: Charles Harris & Sophia Ann Gardner
Great-Grandparents: Jonathan Harris & Ann Toppan
Great-Greatgrandparents: Edward Toppan & Sarah Bailey
3rd Greatgrandparents: Abraham Toppan & Esther Wigglesworth
4th Greatgrandparents Jacob Toppan & Hannah Sewell
5rd Greatgrandparents: Abraham Toppan & Susannah Taylor

Carrie Harris and the wife of William Wallace Crapo, son of Michigan Governor Henry Howland Crapo, share Edward & Sarah (Bailey) Toppan as ancestors. A Chart from the book, Crapo, Henry Howland, Certain Comeoverers, New Bedford, Mass.: E. Anthony & Sons, 1912, illustrates this family. A nephew of William Wallace Crapo, William Crapo Durant, was famous for his involvement in General Motors. These Crapo family members descend from Abner Toppan, brother of Carrie Harris' great-grandmother, Ann Toppan.
