In Response To: Clinton County, Illinois ()
I'm glad you posted this information. Several years ago I attempted to trace the Mayhew family you mentioned. I have Native American Mayhew ancestors and wondered if James was connected somehow to my family. My ancestors came from Long Island New York and Connecticut with possible connections to people in Rhode Island, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
I would be interested in learning more about this part of your research, particularly in how the Mayhews established their NA ancestry. I only vaguely recall there being some question about it in I think James' pension.
I can't recall the name of the other Mayhew, but I think he served in either the 54th or 55th MASS USCT. Is this the same family that you've researched?
