First let me appologise for not getting back to you in a more timely manner. I spend the summers in the mountains, and am just now getting caught up on things. I have found (Via Virda Hansberry) that Stephen Price Gano b1853, was the son of Stephen Rittenhouse Gano b1815, and that Stephen R was the Civil war participant. I can send you more info and copies of the Civil War letters, and Stephen'd full military medical records, but I need you email address.

I have been looking into the possible parents of Stephen Price Gano. I have no proof, but I believe that Stephen’s parents were William Gano and Jane Price married 17 April 1814. (You can go to and see the marriage record.) Both William and Jane lived in Hunterdon, NJ and this fits with the census record that states that his mother and father were from New Jersey. William’s father was Stephen Gano and Mary’s last name, of course was Price. The census also states that he was born in Nov of 1815. This could have possible made him the first son of William. The name would be fitting for the first boy of the family. This is all speculation. The Gano Ganoe Ganow 1610 – 1790 book by Howard Lemaster does list a Stephen as a son of William but it puts his birth at c.1830, but also states above Williams children that the “order of birth not known.” Also the book has no information about Stephen other than it says that he “went to Ohio.” (If you would like I can send photos of the applicable pages.)

I hope that this at least gives you a starting point. If you haven’t already you might want to contact the Hunterdon Historical Society and/or the Buck County Historical Society for more information. You can find research fee info on their websites.

As for Stephen’s civil war information, your best bet is to submit a research request to the National Archives.
Go to the “Order Reproduction” link and then click on “Military Service and Pension Records”. The fees here vary based on what you want. I have researched several Civil War Veterans using the National Archives and I have had great results. It is well worth the money.

Lastly, I would like to see the letters between Stephen and his wife. If you have transcripts or copies of them please e-mail me or contact me. Although your branch of the family (if William and Jane are Stephen’s parents) is a bit distant from my own it’s still fun to look through.

Let me know what you end up finding. I will keep my eyes open. If I find anything else I will be sure to let you know.
