I am trying to determine who Sylvanus Wheeler Packard's parents are. He was born in 1816 and died in 1893 in New Hampshire. He married Sophronia Coburn. One of their children, Charles Albert Packard was born in Cornish, NH 03/23/1844 and died in Enfield, NH 11/15/1917.
Charles Albert Packard is my great-grandfather through his son Guy C. Packard.
I am also trying to determine how this group of Packard's got to NH, since we have been told by a deceased relative that the original family member, Samuel, started in Massachusetts.
