Searching for family/relatives in Litchfield area of Charles Valentine b.1842, Lewis Valentine b.1845, and their parents Peter b.1805 and Catharine Ward Valentine b.1815. The family lived on Prince St. Brooklyn NY (1850 census)until the parents and one son died(between 1850 and 1860). The surviving son lived with a halfbrother briefly then went to Litchfield Conn. for four or five years(1856-1861).In 1861 he enlisted as Lewis
Valentine in 40th NY Inf. After three desertions and reenlistments he was mustered out as Charles E. Ross alias Lewis Valentine.
Charles or Lewis is my husband's ggrandfather and the wall he fashioned is slippery and vague but still a wall. Any information or help in locating relatives will be greatly appreciated.
