+1 vote
#1 Andrew W. Downing-b. 1820-d. 28 Oct.,1905.Buried in Bath National Cemetery,Steuben Co.,NY.

#2 Andrew W Downing -b.possibly 1841 d.28 Oct.1905,died in Steuben Co. and buried in Hall cemetery,Oneida Co,NY.

Andrew #1 has one son born in Ohio-Andrew #2 was sent to Ohio after the Civil War to work as a government rep.

I have discovered many crossovers in information on various sites-mixing the two men,dates not correct, family members mixed.

I am related to Andrew #1 and can find very little info about him-trying to sort him from Andrew #2.

I  am also looking for Andrew #1's wife. She was Calista Campbell,Kelsey or Stevens.,depending on the site visited. Again no info.

This is one of my current mysteries. any help would be appreciated. Thanks
