I, also am related to the Gano family. My 2 G G grandfather, John Gano, fought and died at the battle of Gaines Mill Va.
He was married to Zinah Waggoner.She died in childbirt in march of 1861. He left behind 6 children to join the 1st NJ volunteers from NJ.
I can not be sure of who his father and mother were.
I would appreciate the copies of the pages of the Gano email@example.com
