Charles H. Garnsey
My G G grandfather Charles H Garnsey was born in Roscoe September 14 1850. His parents were Andrew J. Garnsey and Parmelia Pepin Garnsey. They were married Sept 1, 1846 in Roscoe. Their first daughter, Hannah Jerusha died at the age of two weeks and is probably buried in Roscoe or nearby. Ellen Elizabeth, Charles sister, was born in 1851. I have been unable to locate parents for Andrew J. Garnsey. He was born in NY state and moved west from Illinois shortly after his children were born. I believe he also had relatives who were moving west alongside him.
Not only am I looking for all official records, but also any letters from the pre Civil War period to and from Pepins, Garnseys and Courtneys. (Ellen Elizabeth--Nell--married a Courtney in Iowa when she grew up.)
Parmelia Pepin Garnsey had several brothers who served in the Civil War, and Andrew died there. Surely people wrote letters back to Roscoe about it.
