RAND, 1800,VT>Walworth Co 1841
Posted by: Nancy Van Valkenburg Watrous Date: July 24, 2000 at 01:00:19
  of 360

Moses RAND (1800-1881), b. NH, unmarried came from MI in 1841. Died 1881 at home of his sister, Emily E. RAND WORTHINGTON near Racine. Truman "True" RAND (1801-1875) came to Walworth Co in 1837 with brother-in-law, Elijah WORTHINGTON. Took up land in LaGrange.
Emily E. RAND (1806-1888) marr Elijah WORTHINGTON. She was one of first homemakers in Walworth Co. Slept in covered wagon and in 1840 it became a school with Emily W. as teacher. The pupils were her son and four ESTERLEY cousins.
The above RANDs are known to be siblings. I am trying to prove that Alma Blake RAND (1807-1841/49) who married John ROWE, b. 1805, NH, and who died in Walworth Co., WI between 1841-49, is their sister. Emily RAND took in one of the small sons of John ROWE and Alma Blake RAND ROWE after the death of Alma. The parents of Moses, Truman and Emily RAND are referred to as Samuel RAND and Alice Unknown, who were living in VT in 1805.
Collateral families living in Walworth Co in this time period are ROWE, WORTHINGTON, ESTERLEY/LY and HIGGINS.
I would like to communicate with anyone researching any of these families to fill in lots of missing information.
