Surnames: Laskey, McNamara, Lentz, Lenz
I have some ancestors that moved to Wisconsin from New York in the 1840s. They were in Columbia county by 1850 I think. I am enclosing an outline that shows the line I am looking into. The main Surname is LASKEY and some others are McNAMARA, and LENTZ (or LENZ). I am descended through Richard LASKEY, son DAVID LASKEY, son URI LASKEY, dau GRACE LASKEY. I am looking forward to some good information on this list and maybe finding a cousin or two. I live in South Carolina, so any Wisconsin information seems like referencing a foreign country. Our library has nothing.

I have Chloe Laskey in my tree married to Loyal Bates Huntington too!

I believe they arrived in WI between 1850 - 1859. In 1850 census Densmore Huntington was still living in Bethel, Windsor Co, VT. Loyal and Chloe married 11 Aug 1859 in Columbia Co, WI. This is where I have made my estimation on immigrating to WI.

Children of Loyal & Chloe:

1. Clark Ellsworth Huntington
2. Charles Henry Huntington
3. Abbie Matilda Huntington
4. Ida C. Huntington
5. Frank S. Huntington

I noticed you didn't have birth for L.B. it is 9 Sept 1835 in Middlebury, Addison Co, VT. and he died in Oakland, Jefferson Co, WI.

I just found Loyal and Chloe in the 1860 Columbus, Columbia Co., WI census. They say they have a son named Horatio, who is 3 years old, born in Wisconsin.
