James W Lanning born in Hocking County Ohio in 1832. Father and mother James born in Pa. in 1803 and Elsa born in 1815.

Looking for a marriage certificate between James W and Julia Ann Ohler born in Somerset County Pa in 1842

James W was ? in the 57th Ohio Volunteer Inf. Joined in 1861 He died July 28 1863 at Camp Sherman in Mississippi.

Julia Ann and James had 2 children Darley Lanning (name also Winfield or Winfred Scott0 born Feb 1861 and Cinderella Lanning born Jan 1863.
The children were later adopted by Wilkins and Cynthia Nutter Arnold.

Looking for a certificate of marriage or document for James and Julia Looking for Orphans Court document where a guardian was appointed for the children after James died.

More information as to why and when Julia Ann gave up the children for adoption.

Thanks you
