I check the census again to see if I read it wrong but it says NY for birth of James. Probably the census taker didn't get the imformation right.

There is an Elizabeth age 73 born NY living with Jane Beckwith and her family. However, the way they have her listed it looks like her last name is Beckwith.

Charleston Twp., Kalamazoo, 1860 p.233
Berthier Beckwith 38 NY Farmer
Jane 32 NY
Annabell 9 MI
George 5 MI
Emma 1 MI
Elizabeth 73 NY

Galesburg is in Kalamazoo County Galesburg is between Comstock and Charleston Twp.

I couldn't find Samuel in Michigan in 1860. Could Samuel have died in 1857? Where is he buried? I did find them both in 1850 in Comstock Twp.
