Thanks Roger I looked at this Baltis but could not quite make the connection. The 2nd wife might explane why. Even if Nancy was not Daniel Henry Winney's sister, in that 1860 census she is very close to where Danel was married in Davenport Iowa. Oddly enough, the Winney line ended up not far from Baltis Moak in CA. I have some thoughts on that and will send you a private e-mail with my ideas. I like to keep these postings at least a little bit on target. The Davenport Iowa library has been most heplful and I will contact them again. This time on Nancy. Between Baltis and Nancy, we might be able to narrow it down. I hope there is a little more then just New York.
