Altamay Lackey, b. 1865, Dodge, WI Stepfather SidneyOliver
I am looking for information on Altamay Lackey. The only reference I have is the 1870 census for Trenton, Dodge County, WI: Sydney Oliver, 31; Bethany Oliver, 27, and ALTAMAY LACKY, 5. At this time, Altamay was living with her mother and step-father. Her real father was NELSON LACKEY, Bethany's first husband. Bethany's ( also spelled Bethana, Bethone )maiden name was Borst.She was the daughter of James Borst and Melissa Culver. She probably married Nelson Lackey abt 1858 in WI. The 1860 census for Dodge County, WI, shows them with a one-year old daughter, Cecilia. I would also like to know what became of Cecilia. Apparently, Nelson and Bethany divorced sometime after his service in the Civil WAr and she re-married her neighbor, Sidney ( or Sydney ) Oliver. Sidney Oliver was also a Civil War veteran as were three of his brothers, Hartley Oliver, Orville Oliver and Herbert Oliver. The family may have moved from WI to South Dakota as he filed a war pension application from SD. His brother, Herbert A. Oliver, lived in Deuel County, SD, in 1880. We only recently learned of the existence of Altamay Lackey and since she was the daughter of my ggg grandfather, I'd like to follow up on her.
