I hope someone can help me with information. My great great grandmother was Helen Gano, born around 1845. The 1860 census shows her parents and siblings as follows:
Williamage 45 (born 1815 in Mass) Emily35 Rosaline18 Helen15 Anna12 G A10 G E10 William7 Alfred5 Emily2
They resided in Flinn Township, Lawrence, Indiana.
I have Helen's death certificate. She was married to my great great grandfather, Vinton Lawrence. She died 2 Nov 1911 in Louisville, Jefferson County, KY. It shows that she was born in IN, her father was William Gano (birthplace either MA or VA...hard to make it out) and her mother was Emily Bennett (birthplace MD). I am unable to go back any further than her father, William, on the Gano side and know absolutely nothing about her mother's side (Bennett). I greatly appreciate any information anyone can give me.
