Thank you so much. I have all his Civil War records and inf since 1969 but have never found proof of his father.
1969 sent for his death certificate in McLeod, Co. mN. and Scott coot Cop. MN and said christian father unknown.
tried again; late 1970's and gave name as Christian so I am st;ill not certain.
My nephew took the DNA test thru Ancestry.DNa.com for me he is very close related to the family of Daniel C. DEAN that married Abigail B. Bick sonof Danielo Dean born in Conn. 1764 that married Abigail Carpenter in N.Y. .
