Seeking any information on my gg-grandfather Volney I. Buxton, who was born in NY abt. 1822, moved to Michigan and married "unknown"...had two children, Lawson and Aksa(sp)born abt. 1844 and 1850, respectively. After his first wife's death, he married Ellen Rattery, abt. 1840, in Chicago, Illinois and had the following children, Edward James (1856), Charles (1858), William (1859), Harry DeWitt (1862),Alfred (1863) and Frank L. (1868), all who were born in Chicago. Volney died in Chicago February 15, 1888.
I'm at a standstill here after exhausting my resources so if anyone can help me progress a little further it would be greatly appreciated!
