My 3rd great grandfather Horace Chase Thurber. Born 19 Feb 1813 Canandaigua, , New York. Died 23 Jan 1891 Saginaw, , Michigan. Buried Pontiac, , Michigan. Husband of Mary Shelden Darragh born 1817, died 9 Apr 1861
Judge Shubael Conant Born 8-1-1783, Died 7-18-1867.
Builder and owner of the Michigan Exchange. A nice meeting place for Detroit’s aristocracy including Ulysses S. Grant. Judge Conant occupied the same seat at the head of the main table for close to 30 years. He was never married and this was his primary dining spot. Judge Shubael was the brother of Dr. Harry Conant who was my 3rd great grandfather. Amazing and wonderful stuff.
