    3. William Cady 1825-1863 I have researched the surname Cady for over a decade, and much of what I have found goes back quite a bit further. First, the surname has at least three roots. The English name originated in Eastern England and migrated to the American Colonies as early as 1630, most are related to Nicholas Cady of Watertown, MA. The Irish surname mostly came from Tyrone County and is related to Clan Keady or Keity. Most Irish or Scots-Irish arrived after 1840. The Germanic surname mostly came from Bavaria or Bohemia, although some Census records show most European Countries. The best way to track which Cady group is with a Male Y-DNA from FamilytreeDNA. (English is haplogroup “I”, Irish are likely Haplogroup R and European is Haplogroup H or J. I have done most of my research on the English. William was born in Canada which likely points to the English line. Related to Nicholas Cady whose descendants moved north into Vermont and New York. Many later moved to Michigan and some into Southern Canada. It is also possible they came from England directly, which would be recorded. I did find a William Cady married to Sarah Caroline Jennings. There are three families on Ancestry.com who claim William, but none agree on his birth or his parents. The Census of 1850 shows a William in Westfield, Chautauqua, New York with his wife and daughter. The Census of 1860 shows William and family in Sandusky, Erie, Ohio, where he dies in 1863. Sarah Caroline Jennings 1828-1905 parents were Hector Jennings and Delina M Cummings. William may have been born in Canada, likely in transit from New York to Ohio via Lake Erie. (Note the Erie Canal did not open until 1825, so some traveled to Canada). Records in New York are spotty before 1840. I do have a suspect. Chester Jr Cady 1800-and Harriet Keyes 1800. His family was from Westfield, but I do not show any children yet. (See PROSPER CADY (Chester, Eleazer, William, John, James, Nicholas) his brother lived in Westfield. Check Marriage records for Caroline.

    3. Dear Jim Thanks so much for all your work. I will print off your letter and keep it with all my other stuff. I am a beginner and will probably never progress, but it has been fun. Yes, my Cady is the Erie, Ohio Cady, married to Sarah Caroline. All my father's family is connected to Sandusky and area in Ohio. Looks like William Cady (b. 1825 in Baden, Waterloo) is my third great grandfather and the record isnt going anywhere after that. When I signed in to Rootsweb, something came up that listed ALL the William Cadys. Wow, there were a lot of William Cadys. None of them looked like mine. But an interesting thing, as I looked at the list, one of them died in 1864 at Andersonville,Georgia. That means he was a Union prisoner and died at the infamous Civil War prison. So many interesting things. So even though I didnt find my Cady, there was much of interest there. We have an outstanding genealogy library here in Ft. Wayne. One of the best and lots of helpful librarians. The big genealogy convention was held here last year and hundreds of people came, including a friend of mine from North Carolina. Thanks again for the information.

    3. I also take trips to the Allen County Library in Fort Wayne. I have access to Famiysearch.org (Free) Ancestry.com (Available at Library) and MyHeritage/Geni. Rootweb is now owned by Ancestry.com and it was the place to go back in the early 2000’s. Don’t be discouraged, when I started my ancestor was listed in “Cady Genealogy” by Dr James W Cady as disconnected and many researchers had him listed incorrectly with other families. I kept looking for info on his relatives and eventually pieced it together. William is a common name, which makes it hard. But his wife Sarah Caroline Jemmings is your best lead. Jemmings is possibly German, I also have a ggg-grandmother Jemmings. You know William served with the Union Army, so check out his company (Many were from the same county, look for relatives especially the wife’s) Find where they were married and you will find his parents. But, NY Counties reorganized many times between 1791 and 1840, use Wikipedia.com to look at county history. Cattaraugus County, NY only formed in 1808 and was part of the Holland Purchase. Look for records in Batavia, NY Many from New England moved into New York and Vermont, but cheap land and technology made opportunities in the west attractive. Most were farmers, and land records still exist.

    3. I'm not saying that the William Cady who died in Andersonville is MY Cady. It isnt. And it is Jennings, not Jemmings. I dont have much on her either. One by one. :) Maybe I will work on her next. I have my Ancestry membership till Sept and I will just play with it till then. After that, I can get free from the library if I go down. But I'm never going to be a fanatic. Or should I say, I'm never going to be really serious. It is just a fun hobby for awhile. Thanks again for the encouragement.
