I am trying to figure out if there is more than one John W. Overand, or if he just moved around a lot, esp. back and forth to Hartford CT.The following is as near as I can reconstruct, a timeline of his life. ? = not sure if this is "my" John W..
1840: Hartford: born
1861: Hartford: resides
1861: Hartford: married (Ellen Sprague)
1861: Enlists in Civil War, CT
1870: Hartford Census
1875: Dallas City Directory (J. Overand)?
1876-1877: Hartford (in city directory)
1878-1879: Dallas City Directory?
1880: not found in US census
1884-1885: Dallas City Directory?
1886-1887: Dallas City Directory?
1888: Tower Hill, IL?
1890: St. Louis
1899: Tower Hill, IL?
1900: St Louis
1921: St. Louis, died, St. Louis, buried Jefferson Barracks
-1875, 1878-1879 no other Overands
-1884-1885 & 1886-1887 living at 156 Cottonwood, Agnes and Edwin nearby
-Not in 1901 Dallas City Directory, now Agnes, Edward, nd others live at 159 Cottonwood
-1910 Dallas City Directory: J. Wesley Overand, living with Edward
Can anyone shed any light on this?
