Midwesterners in NGS Magazine July-September

Didn't we just get a new NGS Magazine? And now here's another one, the July-September issue, including David W. Jackson with excellent guidance on migration research, featuring David McCord Campbell of Clayton, Adams County, Illinois, at whose house Lincoln is said to have stopped during his circuit-riding days.

Equally fun is Anne J. Miller's case study of Charles and Polly (Jones) Colton, long supposed to have died around 1820 in Cayuga County, New York. Information from an 1833 probate "resurrected" them and led researchers on a chase to Livingston and Oakland counties in Michigan.
