Darius H Mead

Birth: Nov. 18, 1837
Sussex County
New Jersey, USA
Death: 1895
Beadle County
South Dakota, USA

Various records indicate birth dates from 1837 to 1846 and birthplace as either New York or New Jersey.
Darius H. Mead served as a private in the Civil War from 1861 until 1863 as part of the 70 N.Y. Infantry.
According to family records, he married Annice A. Siglar on 18 Jan 1865 in Pennsylvania. However, Sparrowbush is in New York, not in Pennsylvania, but very close to the state line. I find their names, however, on a marriage record in Waupaca, Wisconsin, in 1879. How this is possible still needs to be researched further.
The 1880 United States census shows Darius and Anna with the following children (birth dates approximate):
George Burt Mead (1866)
Ida Amanda Mead (1868)
Silas Edgar Mead (1870)
Frankie Mead (believed to be Frank Everett) (1874)
Alta Mead (1875)
Stella Mead (1881)
Fanny Belle Mead (1887)
