Fun Family Facts

My great-grandfather, Benjamin Louis Silverstein, either worked at or owned a laundry service business. The business was on E. Elizabeth in Detroit, but is no longer there and instead sits Comerica Park.

Just discovered that my 10th great-grandmother is the sister of my 9th great-grandmother. Though I guess that is to be expected when you come over on the Mayflower and you have less than 100 people to chose from in finding a spouse. lol

Found out that the father-in-law of my 7th great-grand aunt was Reverend John Hale. He was a Puritan pastor in Beverly, Massachusetts, during the Salem witch trials in 1692. I’ve been waiting to find someone involved in the trials but was more hoping for a “witch”. lol
