Benjamin F Farley b. abt. 1833 in NY, Civil War Wisconsin
I have been spinning my wheels for weeks trying to find the parents or actual birthdate of Benjamin F Farley. This is what I know:
About 1833 - Born in New York (possibly Oneida)
28 Sep 1855 - Married Elizabeth A Edinger in Kane, IL
About 1857 - Son born named Frank Adelbert Farley in IN
23 Apr 1858 - Daughter born named Emma Arlet Farley in MI
29 Feb 1860 - Daughter born named Etta M Farley in MI
8 May 1862 - Son born named Benjamin Farley in WI
10 Aug 1862 - Enlisted in WI Co C, 20th Infantry
3 Jul 1865 - Died in Galveston, TX at regimental hospital due to accident
I also know that Jason Van Tassel lived with him and his famly in the 1860 census and that is who Elizabeth married after Benjamin's death.
Also, it seems he, and Amos Farley and a James Farley all enlisted on the Union side of the Civil War in Wisconsin within a day of each other - these could possibly be relatives.I haven't been able to find any info on Amos or James either.
I am really stuck here - any help is very much appreciated!
