William R. Rannels, born between1827-29 in Ireland, Canada or the United States. Death 28 Dec 1880, Mosinee, Marathon, Wisconsin. Was married to Margaret Jane Hughes. Two sons born to this union: William and Roy. Cannot trace William R. Rannels. Any help would be appreciated. Thank-you,
William R. was my 2nd Great Grandfather. One clue that I have recently found was that on his son’s, William Francis Rannels, ( my 2nd great uncle) 2nd marriage licence he listed his father as having been born in Perth Ontario. The 1861 Canadian Census has a William Rannels residing in Northumberland, Canada West. The census is primarily dedicated to agricultural development and I am no closer to being sure if this is my guy.
