I was looking at your page and found a tidbit thatI would love to find out more information.
It was revolutionary Pensioners where a BenjaminCarpenter was listed.
Do you know anyone that may have more informationabout him or his children or anything at all? I do believe this personis related to me, but have no way of tying him in. I am a decendantof Abner Carpenter that came to Illinois (Mason Co census 1850). We havesuspected Benjamin is his father but have no other information….Abnerhad a son, Benjamin, that is my line as well. That is why I think thisone is related family name passed down forever.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

I’ve recently started tracking my Shuler family tree and I know they werein Schuyler County for several years. John A Shuler married Sarah Rigsby(Rigsbee) in 1858. Sarah’s parents were John E Rigsby and Martha Fena. Iwant to find out what happened to Sarah because she had children, I believe3 then disappears. I assume she died, but can’t find any additionalinformation. John A Shuler then married Caroline Walker in 1865, they movedto Iowa in 1873. I’m also looking for background information on Caroline.Her parents were Rachael and Felix Walker from Kentucky, sisters Sarah andCatharine, brother John Henry. I can’t locate where in Kentucky they camefrom? If anyone is out there, let me know.
