I am looking for Peter Vanness(b. Holland, migrated NY->AL), m. Mary Ann Evans(KY).
Mary Ann is listed in 1840 Franklin Co., AL census: Ann Vanniss with 2 sons 0-5yrs old.
Mary Ann is also listed in 1850 Lauderdale co.,AL census: Veness, Mary 36 (KY) Son: George 14 (AL)
Peter is not listed in either census. Mary Ann died in 1854, although I don't know where.
The Son george is: George Henry Clay Vanness b 1839(1850 census is wrong), who went on to join the AL confederate army, was captured, transferred to Ohio, and stayed in Cincinnati after release. Any help is greatly appreciated.
