I descend from John Gardner, the son of Catherine (Deem) Gardner.Catherine and John were listed right below Mary in the 1860 census.All 3 of these families were right next to each other in all three census records.
I am interested in finding out who the husbands of Catherine and Mary were.I realize that Deem could have started out Diehm but I can't do much without the first names of their husbands and I haven't been able to find anything else on them.
If anyone has anything that might help me, please e-mail me direct.
