Looking for information/correspondence on SYPHER and CAMPBELL families of Lapeer County. Rufus SYPHER and Rebecca FOWLER SYPHER moved to Lapeer County from Oxford County, Ontario about 1865. Rufus died in 1904, and he and Rebecca are buried in North Branch. Rufus was the son of a John SYPHER, who died March 12, 1894 in North Branch. There is some connection between these SYPHERs and a Peter SYPHER who lived in the southwest part of the county. Rufus and Rebecca's son, Walter, maried Martha Elizabeth CAMPBELL in 1888 Martha was the daughter of Nathaniel and Mary CAMPBELL of Attica. I am the great-grandson of Walter and Martha. Nathaniel and Mary came to Lapeer County from Wisconsin after the Civil War. Does anyone know these families? tnpoh@bright.net
