I am researching the Easterly family in NY. I have come at a stand still With Freeman Easterly whom was married to Lodema Phillips. He was in the civil war, I have been told that you are the one to ask for info on this family can you help, or tell me how to find the info I need on him. I have checked civil war records, cemetery records, and found the will testators. none of it really gives me more so that I can follow the line back further to know the ancestry. Please help if you can.
