Yes, I would like the obit for Israel Boyington 1/24/1882 from the Kalamazoo Gazette and the one for Benjamin Butler from the 1860 Kalamazoo census. Perhaps they will mention the history of Dolly. Benjamin is most likely her youngest son on the 1850 census. He died quite young! Also you had menioned Coral as listed in the 1900 census and 88 years old and that he was listed as living in Kalamazoo County, Richland Twp in the 1837 census. Was he married then? I don't have a marriage date for Dolly and Coral, but thought they must have been married ca 1840. Could have been closer to 1844/5, as they have a 6 yrs old child on the 1850 census. Any info is appreciated and I would like to know if I can compensate you financially for the information you are finding for me, which takes your time, etc., and I really do appreciate your helping me! Just let me know. It is hard when one lives in Minnesota and trying to research back east. Kay O.
