I'm looking for parents of Susanna Wismer, born August 16 1831 in Dumfries, and died May 25, 1922 in Gaines Twp, Kent County, Michigan. She's buried in Gaines Cemetery. She married William B Pickett May 15, 1849 in Waterloo County. William was an immigrant from Bedfordshire, England. here are some notes I was given, that may help: "William B Pickett is a native of England, born in Bedfordshire, Sept 28 1818. His parents, William and Mary (Baston) Pickett, emigrated to Canada in 1827, and settled in Galt. Mr. Pickett, Sr. met with an accident which disabled him from active business and the support of the family devolved upon the son. There were eight children besides the parents, and it was a heavy burden upon the boy's shoulders, but it was bourn uncomplainingly, and with the best results to the son who "honored" his father and mother. His industry and attention to the duties that came nearest to his hands, have brought him competency and comfort in the sunset of his life. he learned the joiners trade, at which he worked twenty years. he came to this county oct 13, 1854 and settled on section twenty, where he cleared 65 acres of wilderness in five years. he removed to ionia county in 1863 and in 1865 came back to kent county and settled on section twenty once more. in 1867 he fixed his residence permanently on section 33. He owns a valuable farm on sections 33 and 34, including 280 acres of finely improved land. He was married may 15 1849 to susanna wismer, born in Dumflies, Canada aug 16 1831. their children are as follows: Elizabeth (Mrs Cyrus Nogles), John, Joseph, Mary (Mrs C.W. Wernette), Amos, George, and Jesse. Mr Pickett is a republican and served as highway commissioner. a portrait of mr. pickett appears on another page, from a photograph taken in 1869.
