My ggg grandfather was Abram W. Gault married to a Clarrissa. They resided and had land in Lebanon in 1847 when and where my gg grandmother Sylvia A. Gault was born. They had several others children Edward W. and possibly a Stewart or a Frank. Edward W. Gault married Elsie Cole and had the following children Stewart, Nancy, Mable, Edward. He remarried to Edith Alton and they had three ore children Jason, Merrel, and Forest. Sylvia Ann Gault married Henry C. Wilson who was also a resident of Dodge Co in 1860 or earlier. Does anyone know who Henry C. Wilson's parents were? I haven't been able to locate where Abram Gault lived after 1850. However, because his children were married in Lebanon, I assume he was still there in 1860 and 1865. I would appreciate any information or suggestions.
