I am looking for information for Mary Augusta Pardee. She was the daughter of Leonard Pardee and Sarah W. Burns and was born about 1833 in New Haven, New Haven, CT. She married William W. Converse 28 Dec 1854 in New Haven, CT, the same day and place as her sister Antoinette Elisabeth Pardee to Homer Baxter Sprague.
I am trying to find dates, places, children, etc. and also am looking for any information about Mary's husband, William.
William W. Converse was born about 1833 in either Connecticut or Massachusettes. He was the president of the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. after his brother in law William W. Winchester died in 1881 and before Thomas G. Bennett was pres. of the company in 1890. I've no other information for William and would like to know who his parents, siblings, children, etc. are.
I found a listing in the 1860 New Haven, CT census for a Wm. Converse, 26 years old, born in Mass., working as a bookeeper and his wife Mary Converse, 27 years old, born in Connecticut. Any idea if this is the William and Mary Converse that I'm looking for?
Thank you in advance for your time and your help. Any information at all would be helpful as I am really stuck! I look forward to hearing from anyone :0)
with thanks, from Rebekah
