I am trying to find out more information about Ira Slate and his wife Harriet Wyllis/Willis. He is reported to have lived in Berrien County before 1863 and as late as 1901 when a biographical sketch appears for him in a Jackson County history book. Ira was born in Orleans Co., NY, about 1820 and Harriet was born in Jackson Co., MI. They were married there, as well.
Ira was supposedly in the 12th Regiment, Co K, enlisting in 1863 and then returning to Berrien County upon his discharge.He and Harriet had one daughter, Ellen, who was listed as living in Illinois at the time of Ira's biographical sketch.
If more details would help, please let me know. Thank you for your time and help.
