I am searching for further information about a direct line ancestor, Margaret A. HEAD born 25 May 1804 in Springfield, Otsego County, New York. She married 2 May 1820 in Owasco, Cyuga County, New York to Chauncey HIGLEY. Sometime after their marriage the couple moved to Ohio and settled in Delaware County, Ohio where they raised a family. Margaret died 6 Feb. 1897 in Ashley, Delaware Co. Ohio. What I am needing is some help in finding Margaret's parents and any siblings that existed. I have no idea who the parents were. Is there someone who could point me in a direction that might give me some clues as to the parents? Thank you for any help in this matter. I live in Columbus, Ohio and I do not have access to records etc. for this area.

I.m been searching for information concerning Gorham Casey. He was born in Ostego (or Oswego ) county on 8-11-1804. The counties are cross mentioned on various Wisconsin documents, He married a Betsey Elizabeth Moore (dob 8-11-1803, New Jersey) In 1850 he is listed in the Town Of Murray, Orleans CTy on the U.S. 1850 Census under the name (CACY). I've checked on Grantor/ee records and find he owned/transeffered real property in 1855 and 1859. He moved to WI in time for the 1860 census. He had three male children: Justice C., L.Edson. and James W. Casey. I've dying to learn of Gorhams parents, marriage date, and Betsy'd family if possible. It's coceivable he is related to several Rhode Island Casey's decended from ThoMas Casey but I can't make that connection until I find out about Gorham's parents.
