Note: (Research):NOTES FROM DAVID PRINS: Aaron enlisted in the Union Army at age 39 during Civil War . Term of enlistment began 9 Nov 1861. Leafy was born two weeks later. Aaron served in the 29th Ohio Infantry, Company "C" for two years. While in the service, two of his sons, George & John, passed away. After contracting an illness in the Army, Aaron was given an honorable discharge 10 July 1863. In late 1863, Aaron moved his family from Ohio to Wexford Co,Michigan. The trip was made by covered wagon pulled by oxen. Aaron was so ill, he had to make the entire trip lying down. They took up residence on a 160-acre plot 2 miles south of Sherman, Michigan in a temporary shack of boughs. When Aaron recovered, he built another shack of hemlock trees which housed the family through two winters (1863-4). Aaron's son Howard was the first white child to be born in Wexford County, MI. Eventually, he built a better and larger house. When the stage began to run between Grand Rapids and Traverse City, he boarded the travelers each way over night. In 1871, he traded the homestead for a farm in Allegan, thence to Salem, thence to Jamestown, and back to Salem again before finally settling in Trowbridge.
