I am looking for information about my great grandfather, William Carey. He lived in Necedah, and he died after 1880, (he is in the 1880 census but not the 1890 census) and is buried in Bay View Cemetary. His tombstone doesn't give his birth or death dates. I have no information on his parents or other family. He was married to a Martha Watts and had, I believe five children, William, Mary, Martha,Ernest and my grandmother Ethel. He served in the Civil War in Company E, 28th Wisconsin. I would appreciate any information about him, his ancestors, or information about the children and their families.

Dear KTHerbert:
I am directly related to a Carey family that immigrated to Necedah in 1846 (approx.) and had seven children(Martin, Eleanor, James, Winifred, Patrick, Catherine, Edward) there. The parents who lived there until 1871 were Patrick and Bridget Carey. It is possible that they sent for more relatives from Ireland. They moved to Albert Lea Minnesota after that.
