Gaines in Iowa County, Michigan Terr.1830
I have only this notation from an Iowa County History source;A Frenchman, Mr. Gaines married a squaw and settled at Linden in Iowa County (later part of Wis.) in 1830 or earlier.I have found a Charles Gaines, widower born ca.1796 Canada(Que?) on the 1850 Iowa Dubuque Co. census with two daughters and a son born in Wisconsin in 1829-1833, and then 3 more children born in Iowa, 1835-1839.
This was the only possibility I could find in 1850 census.
Anyone have any information or clues that might help with this search? Thank you.
