I believe the Charles (W.) Mudgett b. 1856 is my great grandfather. Working backward from the 1889 Washington Territorial census in Port Townsend (where family tradition pointed me) where I found Charles W. Mudgett married to Marguerite Nelson (later divorced) with my grandmother and her sister listed, I went to the Seattle library and looked up the 1860 Wisconsin census records and the only child in counted in the state with the name of Charles Mudgett, also four years old which was right, was this once. There were three other Mudgett families in Wisconsin but none had a Charles.
The census showed Ezra Sr. to be a Wesleyan Methodist clergyman. If you know of this 1860 census record from New Berlin, can you explain what looks like "ad" after the names of William H., Lorenzo, and Franklin. Al the others have clear states of birth. Do these "ad"s mean adopted?
This same census claims the Ezra Sr. was born in New Hampshire and Matilda was born in New York.
I would be very pleased to hear from you as this is all the information I have been able to collect on this branch of my family and stories abound as to the lineage. I have been hitting dead ends for about four years here. Hope to talk soon,
