Hi I am trying to find the ancestors of John Dean and his wife Celestina. He was born in June 1826 in New York, and was in Minnesota by 16 Nov1864- enrolment date into Company B, 5th Minnesota Infantry. He then lived in Blue Earh until his death on 21Nov1911. Children Flavia, George, Stella. His wife was Celestina, also born New York in 1827. Any help with finding either of their parents, or details about their lives, most appreciated! (Have censuses and 1 photo of Flavia.) Thanks Sue

You can look in for his actual death certificate. You might want to order it from the Faribault County Recorder. If the Informant knew his parents names, they will be on the DC.
