Hello - I never knew that some of our oldies fought in the American civil war in 1861-65. Learn something everyday

source = american war records

American Civil War 1861-65
Several men from New Zealand served in the American Civil War between 1861 and 1865. Most of them were born in New Zealand prior to 1840 and were of mixed race, as American records classify them as Mulatto or Copper complexion.

Charles Lyman was 25, born in New Zealand, of copper complexion, 5' 6", when he enlisted at New Bedford in 1864, in the Union Navy, as a landsman.

John Morris was 26, complexion black, height 5' 5", born in New Zealand, when he enlisted in Boston in 1864 as a seaman and served on the Cayuga in 1865.

Joshua M Addeman was born in the Bay of Islands, and served in the 14th Rhode Island Heavy Artillery. He was an ex- Captain.

Thomas Brown- USS Augusta, and Thomas Dowd- USS Augusta were both born in New Zealand.

James A Fossett was born in Auckland, and served in 1859 in San Francisco. He was an ex- US Regular.

Hello to all members and ( erassy ). This journal is about the enquiry you made = " Looking for my Great Grandfather -Gary Hans Rasmussen "

I think you are going to need more Dates/ ages / etc' . I did a brief search for this person . I found they were not able to be sorted into the possible person we are looking for because we couldn't use a date to say _ Thats Him. I tried using a time frame measurement ,that some of us geneoligists use , to find the possible date area we need to be in and used its adjustments . It works like this .
WE say the researcher's ( 50 ) or older
next take the average between generations ( Father to eldest child =
( 25 years )
We then use the adjustment in the year time frame of = 0 -2 -5 -10 - 20
to cover the time generation of that person .
If the name is correct , and the info / entry is their in the records we have found this method , has a success rate of over 87 % .
The following is what I did find -
Their is about 80 entries for " Gary Rasmussen " in Familysearch.org or Ancestry.com. They come from Denmark - Norway or born in USA .They are in several states. The year range is from 1815 to 1981. Many are called Hans Rasmussen In Minesota in The 1880 census their where
( 5 ) Hans Rasmussen - No -Gary Hans Rasmussen . Most times the " Hans " comes first in a name
Their are also ( 3,270 ) family trees in tribalpages.com with the " Rasmussen " name related . I did not search them . Think you may enjoy having a go at them If you could even assess the date of your great Grandfather - it would help you and others to find him . I hopethis journal is of some assistance

When we were journing to Mahia on the east coast for our summer break ,You could drive their in a day ( a big day over 13 hours & not to many breaks )from Auckland. After trying to do it that way the first time. , we decided in future trips to stay at Opotiki for a night and take off again next morning . over the hills and gorge to Gisborne . We would stop there ,have a toilet stop - bite to eat and on our way again along Highway ( 22 ) to our beloved Mahia . Just before the Turn off at Nuhaka which goes to Mahia - about 10 k's on the left hand side, are the Morere Hot springs . In those days , the springs were pretty primitive . Some natural rock tubs and some changing rooms . a tucker shed where you paid to get in . I don't know what it is like today. We were ony about an hour's drive away from our final destination . This was the starting point of our winding down . WE would get in that hot mineral water and soak off & on for about an hour or two . then we take off , foot to the pedal and get to Mahia - We would move in quickly and roughly . buy a meal for all of us . No matter what time we arrived we did this proceedure . We would all use the Motel shower get changed , hit the sack and sleep . After those hot springs , and feed of freshly caught scnapper and scallops , shower -- believe me -- we just went out like logs . in fact a dead sleep . What a life ! it was . After being their for 2 or 3 weeks ( depending on what was going on back home--we kept in touch by phone every night)-of eating crayfish, scalops , oysters , mussells , home grown small new potatoes & fresh vegey's etc . swimming . Just lying their doing absolutely nothing , when you came home . All of you was over charged and you just wanted to work and work . You didn't seem to get tired for a couple of months - then it was time to take another short break. This time we used the family launch and headed arond the Hauraki Islands - especially Kawau - or we would use Bonacord Harbour as a base to go out from every day . However thats another story. Those were the days . Plenty of work and plenty of relaxation. both work well together . righty oh --time for a cuppa

Till we meet again -Regards -edmondsallan

" ARNOLD " AD - PART ( 1 ) SECTION ( A )

edmondsallan . Good morning - At the end of Part ( 2 ) I mentioned a
" Lord Sitsyllt " I am going to start this Journal with him .This journal will have exactly whats in our personal book on the " Arnolds " on the opening page ,in this section . The only bits that are missing is the Gold Printing .


1126 AD


He married a " ANNE VERCH GRUFFYDD " in 1146 AD. They had nine ( 9 ) children. We have found in our research and have printed a section for this personal ancestral book -- 32 pages of proven evidence of her genealogy relationship to the royalty of those Times in the known world . Lord Sitsyllt also has just as many pages & listings . However his ancestral flow chart goes further and is related to many families , including ' Royals & Leaders ' of most of the oldest families in the world we know in that era. Of the many families ( now world wide )only the " ARNALLTS " have a direct relationship with these two people mentioned of royal descent .

After you have read that opening you may realise the depth of that statement. It took me over 18 months to sort & prove that opening statement with its proven documentation as surport . The journal today " Part ( 1 )is part of that research . I will start this part of this journal with the shortened version of " ANNE VERCH GRUFFYDD "
wife of " Lord Sitsyllt " both of Wales. A few entries did not have all or what I require in full , they have not been entered even though in the notations they follow on . You may see this by some of the dating . They have not been missed to make things meet .Most of them were not entered because they only had one parent given or something simular not available .

edmondsallan - Hello- We are still in Wales - " Part ( 2 ) - camera ! .- Hold ! " - Take " and a way we go ( Always wanted to do that excuse the lad in me )

CERAINT ap ELIDER WAR - -b - 0708 AD Wales
( I made a note here- It is believed he married his mother in
0733- IT is said , that it was to safe guard her - or it could have been to inherit the leadership ahead of his brothers .

GWRIAD ap ELIDER -b -0738 AD - Wales
m - NEST VERCH CADELL - 0762 AD - Wales
MERFYN " FRYCH ' ap GWRIAD - b -0764 AD - Wales
m- ESYLLT VERCH CYNAN -0786 AD - Wales
( Merfyn was killed in Battle of CYFEILIOG .He was travelling from the west coast of Wales with his armed forces and was trying to get to Eastern Glamoragan when he was ambushed . Many of his followers escaped to the " Black Mountains " of Gwent .Their was a lot of fighting going on around Gwent to see who was going to have all .)

( He died in 0878 AD The Girl he married " ANGHARAAD "WAS THE ( 3RD )
daughter of one of the Greatest Fighting Welch leaders of all time .
He was known as " MEURIG - THE GIANT " his description is -- 6' 4 " in height weighed about 19 stone . had a chest of over ( 58" )and used the largest two handed sword in all of Britian . ( Wow !! just what Wales needs in that scrum of theirs today as a lock !!!! )

CARADOG ap CARADOR b-( no date)Monmouth - Wales
m- 1085 Abergavenny-Wales " NEST LE GROS "
DYFNWAL ap CARADOG b- 1086 Monmouth - Wales
m- 1124 " " " JOYCE DE BALLADON
( NOTE ** > The family of this last couple were not named in the records - except one He later became known as " LORD SITSYLIT of DYFNWAL ARNALIT " THIS WAS THE START OF THE " ARNOLD " NAME EVENTUALLY IN WALES FROM THIS LINE OF ANCESTRY . " LORD SITSYLIT " also became one of the real foundation blocks in " Weich Ancestry "
Many other families are linked to this person. In fact over ( 80 % ) of other Welch ancestry are linked one way or another. He is the Genealogist's Dream and many many of my fellow genealogists have started at this point in a 365 Degree circle . He was one of the great finds in modern day records . This is also the end of part two ( 2 )- ( Shortened version ) It was nice for the wife to know all the history , the affairs , the fighting , and much more . However I think when others are looking at such an extradinary long ancestral chart as this . They just want to see flow chart . OK - Till we meet again - Regards -edmondsallan
