Charles H. High in 1840 Fed Census in Lockport, NY
Posted by: John High (ID *****6078) Date: June 28, 2008 at 15:33:36
  of 1237

According to the census information, this Charles High was in the age group 20 to 30, in his household was 1 female in the same age group and 1 male child in the under 5 years of age group...The US Army Enlistment Records for 1778 to 1914, lists a Charles H. High as enlisting June 4th, 1842 in Lockport, NY at age 24 for a period of 5 years. His description is stated as; Blue Eyes, Brown hair, ruddy complexion, and 5 ft. 0 in. tall. His unit was the 4th Artillery Company, Btry K. ... Also, ccording to the same document, he deserted as of Aug 3, 1843, with no apprehention date listed. I firmly beleive this my Charles High who ended up in Indiana around 1844-1845. It's possible his son may have died in his youth. I also believe his wife may have had a second son (John H. High) in Oct 1845 and she then may have died also. See my other postings with regards to John and Charles second wife Malinda. I still have no idea what Happened to my Chalres High after about 1855. I beleive his father to have been the James High listed in the same 1840 census and also living in Lockport. So again, I ask that you look and see if have any connection to this Charles or James who were both in Lockport NY in 1840.
