Is anybody familiar with the surname "Tender" as it relates to the LaLiberte family?
I am attempting to research "Tender" for some half-cousins, same grandmother, different grandfathers.
I am stuck on Alexis Tender who was born about 1800 per the 1850 Federal Census for the Town of Wilmington, Essex County, NY.On that Census his birthplace is stated as Massachusetts.
Various subsequent records (death certificate of a son;1880 Federal Census for the same son) cite birth places for Alexis Tender of LaBelle, Quebec, Canada - dc and England - Census.
I find an Alexis (Elexis) Tender who served in the Civil War who was probably a son:
Name:Elexis Tender , Enlistment Date:25 February 1862 Distinguished Service:DISTINGUISHED SERVICE Side Served:Union State Served:New York Unit Numbers:1604 1604 Service Record:Enlisted as a Private on 25 February 1862 at the age of 44 Enlisted in Company C, 96th Infantry Regiment New York on 25 February 1862. Discharged Company C, 96th Infantry Regiment New York on 24 September 1862 in Fort Monroe, VA
Also, Wallace W. Tender, definitely a son, who also served in the Civil War.
Name:Wallace W Tender , Enlistment Date:09 August 1862 Distinguished Service:DISTINGUISHED SERVICE Side Served:Union State Served:New York Unit Numbers:1377 1377 Service Record:Enlisted as a Private on 09 August 1862 at the age of 21 Enlisted in Company C, 118th Infantry Regiment New York on 29 August 1862. Mustered out Company C, 118th Infantry Regiment New York on 13 June 1865 in Richmond, VA
Received gunshot wound during military service per "Special Census of Veterans of Civil War."
I have been told that Tender was previously LaTende and prior to that, LaLiberte.
I have only worked on this line intermittently but the recent death of a cousin has reawakened my search.
