I am following the trail of a gr.gr.gr. uncle who left Kentucky, was briefly in Indiana and appears in the 1860 census of GRANT CO., WIS. There the trail has grown cold, and I assume they moved west.
EDWARD SMITH (b. 1812/KY) and his wife CATHERINE (Parks) SMITH (b. 1822/KY) and their several children were in the 1850 census of Brown Co., Wis., and finally would up in Grant.
They seem to have vanished without a trace and no other data base or researchers for this fairly large family have been found.
Can anyone tell me what the general migration pattern was (if you can say there was such) for that part of Wisconsin?
Is it possible that they went up into Canada, or was that not a trend?
If anyone can give me some feedback on the concept, or certainly if anyone should have a connection with this family, I would appreciate hearing from you.
