In the post “Coming to Wacousta,” I set out to trace the path of the families of my grandparents from Europe to Wacousta, Michigan. By the time of the Civil War, all four families — the Blisses, the Daniells, the Stephensons, and the Winegars — were situated in Clinton County, Michigan. In the 1900s, the families merge. Following are pictures from the weddings.

A fire destroyed the original Pivot in 1911 after W.C. Daniells and Iva Bliss married. Subsequent Pivot weddings were at the home that was rebuilt by Herman Sidney Bliss. A description of the fire, written by Bel Gensterblum, will be in the next post. The rebuilt Pivot is currently owned by Tom Lowell, a Bliss-Daniells descendant.
