Please help! Looking for any information on the above Townsend. His father and mother (Robert Sr and Ruth Sawtelle) moved from Maine to Ohio ~ 1812. What I have concerning Robert-Robertson-Robinson, b 1795:
1820, 1830, and 1840 US Censuses;
Ohio marriage record to 'Eddy Page' 1816;
Officiated at several Ohio marriages as an Elder;
Iowa marriage record for a son, Charles Howard Townsend.
Ultimate goal: gain documentation that he is the father of my great-great grandfather Samuel Townsend, born 1830 in Ohio. Samuel moved to Iowa in 1853, married, had 2 sons, and then died in the Civil War.
