Both Henry and Elizabeth Peters were born abt 1823-4 in PA, wed there in 1845 had James S.(1846)and Noah H. (1847), moved to Ft. Lee, Madison Co., IA where Emanuel was born in 1849.
Family story is Henry died "during the war" and the children were "bound out". Was Henry a soldier or was the event of the war simply a reference point? The boys all married and lived in NE and their mother lived with them until she married a Mr. Norris.
Who were Henry's ancestors?Anyone know this family? I've been chipping at this brick wall for 20 years and could use some help.
