I am searching for my great-great grandmother's Ann boylan Agnew'stravel after she applied for Civil War pension for her husband Felix Agnew who died in POW camp in either SC or
VA 21 Apr 1865. She applied for war pension 27 July 1865. It was approved by Army Washington Dc in 1867 while Ann still lived in Rossie, St Lawrence Co.NY. In 1868 she sold her place and started traveling believe she headed for Housatanic MA. The timeframe 1868-1879 For Ann & family is missing. Don't know how long she stayed in Housatonic MA.
But one of her son's John must have met his future wife Nellie Ellen Costello who was born in West Stockbridge MA.
She was living in Great Barrington, MA.
Ann & family must have moved to Waterbury CT before 1880 as she and family are found in Connecticut US 1880 Federal Census.
In MA marriages of Great Barrington, Berkshire Co. MA of 24 August 1882 lists John Agnew - Nellie Ellen Costello married @ Great Barrington, MA by Catholic priest. Doesn't give name of Catholic Church.
So,I am trying to fill void of Ann Agnew & Family between 1868 to 1879. Any assistance or guidance will be greatly
