States: New York: Cortland
Thank you for the info you sent me on the LAKE-JOHNSON family. Sorry I was so late in answering. I was able to visit the WI State Gen. Library , and in the 1850 census of Lapeer Twsp., Courtland Cty, NY, I found Jedediah Lake in dwelling 1346 under Chester H. JOHNSON and Hannah L. JOHNSON at age 15. This matches up with his enlistment papers of 1862 when he enlisted in the Iowa regiment. He died February, 1863 as a prisoner at Young's Point, LA. He must be related to the LAKE's that you named? Where does Chester come in? I see they lived next door to James and Patience THOMPSON. Any info is greatly appreciated.
Jedeiah LAKE JOHNSON maarried Clarinda Nancy BROWN,March 16, 1856 in Courtland County. She was born in Virgil, October 11, 1837 in Virgil. Thanks again, Kathleen
