Downes Family Genealogy Forum
Searching for parents of William Downes born about 1852 in Florence, Oneida County, NY married Minnie Chase born 1865 in Florence, Oneida County 1886 to 1887.
It says on the 1900 Census that his parents were born in England.
The only ones I found in the 1850 and 1860 Census that were born in England were John born around 1815 and Hannah born around 1821. I have no idea where they got married or what her maiden name was. They had a son Thomas born 1847 in NY, a son John born 1849 in NY and on the 1860 Census John the father was dead and Thomas the son was not on it. John the father is not on the 1840 Census so I don't know when he came here.
