Park family that raised John Townley
Looking for a Park family that lived near Guilderland NY that might have raised John Townley born 1847-1848.
His parents were William R and Jane Townley. They died when he was about 6 and he was raised by a Park family.
He joined the Civil War as John Townley but took the name of Park after the War because he deserted. He lived out his life as John Park in Beckham Co Oklahoma.
Any help appreciated
