Re: LACKEY, VT
I JUST now found the response to your message on Joseph Lackey, son of Orrin Lackey. I am very interested in anything on him. This is the only Joseph that I have found so far in any of the Lackey information from Vermont. My Joseph was probably born about 1835-1840 time frame. He never was in the US census that I can find, although I have found a Joseph in NYC in 1870 and 1880, which is where he supposedly went after deserting his wife and daughter in 1865. His daughter, Ida Lucy, my ggrandmother was born in 1864 in Frelighsburg, Missisquoi, Quebec but her mother returned to the states before 1870, and Joseph was already gone. In 1880, Ida lists her father as being born in VT, in 1910, she says that he was born in Canada, in 1920, she says he was born in NY, and on her death certificate, her father is again listed as being born in Canada. If you can help me with this line, I would really appreciate it.
