Henry Peters and Elizabeth Ainsley both born abt 1824 in PA, lived in Ft.Lee, Madison Co., IA and raised James S. b.about 1826, PA, Noah H. b. about 1847 PA and Emanuel b. 1849 in Iowa.
Looking for leads on Henry's ancestry. The family knows he died "during the war": was he in the serice? where did he die?Elizabeth had the boys "bound out". (She lived with her sons in NE and later married Mr. Norris.) Our great grandpa, Emanuel led settlers to Guide Rock, NE on the Republican River. His brothers settled there later. James married Sarah, Noah married Elizabeth, and Emanuel married Dora Detra Dunbar.
This has been one of my brick walls for 20 years. Anyone help?
