I can see why I couldn't find Edmond Courtney in Wisconsin in 1860. The last name was misspelled. The family in Afton, Wisconsin is the family that I'm researching. I just can't find the connection this family to the New York family. According to his obiturary he came to America with his parents and settled in New Hampshire but I can't find anything in New Hampshire on anyone in this family. It is believed that he came to Wisconsin around 1850 and his wife's name is Mary Madigan. Would there be any chance that you could check New Hampshire and see if there's anything on them? Thankyou for you time and your help!!!!
