I am looking for a connection between my great-grandmother and her possible marriage to a Civil War Vet. from Wisconsin, noted in an obit. as "Charley Linsey".
The Roster of Wisc. Vet's show two possibilities:
Charles H. Linsay - Priv. Co. H, 16th Inf., New Co.
Charles Linsday - Priv. Co. I, 1st Heavy Artillery
My gr.-grandma's name was Parthena Lindsey Quimby. There were two other confirmed marriages:
1. Israel Jason Cannon (Had six children together)
2. John Wightman
Parthena was born in Dale, Outagamie Co., WI on 1/28/1865 and died in the WI Vet's Home in Farmington Twp., Waupaca Co., WI on 3/17/1921.
Her parents were Horace L. & Electa Maria "Mary" (Grandy) Quimby.
Please contact me if you can "make the connection".
