    Notes 
    • Angeline and her husband arrived in Hubbardston, Michigan in 1854*. They came by way of the Erie Canal to Buffalo, NY, and then sailed on a ship to Detroit. From Detroit, they took the railroad to Owosso, Michigan, where the railroad ended. From there they caught the work train from Owosso to Saint Johns and then traveled by oxcart to Plains.

      They stopped at a friend's house in Matherton for two weeks before going on to Hubbardston. They lived there for two years fighting malaria. Then they bought and cleared land in Bloomer Township, in Montcalm County two miles away from the then-non-existent Carson City, where Angeline pulled her end of a crosscut saw and had to contend with Indians who were numerous.

      Angeline Goolthrite was received as a member April 4, 1875 by letter to the United Methodist Church records, Matherton Circuit. In the church records, her death is also noted as November 12, 1914.

      "The Goolthrites, Orrin and his wife Angeline came from New York's Jefferson County to the Hubbardston area in 1854, on to Bloomer township, Montcalm Co. for a few years, then back to Lebanon township east of Hubbardston in 1865. Their daughter, Susan married Albert Lattimer. A son Myron, took as his bride Emma Smith. Their daughter, Mabel, married Charles Langdon, and their daughters Dorothy Yates and Louise Brown are residents of Midland and Detroit."
