Hi Rod,
I found this issue that I thought I should bring up with you.  Philanda (Philander) STAYMAN, b.19Aug1841, d.06 Jan1856, is shown as living with his parents in Mundy, Genesee, MI in the 1880 Census.  This brings to question, are Philanda and Philander the same?  Were they twins?  Is there some other error at work?  Just thought I'd let you know.  All the best in the New Year to  you and yours!
