My great grandfather, James William Hallenbeck, was born in Fairfield County, Conn. in 1849. I sent for the birth record hoping to get his parents names.  It looks like his father was Aaron Hallenbeck and his mother may have been Ann.  So hard to read!  I have looked for further info on the family in CT but find nothing until they are in New York in 1860. 

Any info on where I could search next is greatly appreciated.  He is my brickwall!!!

If I can help anyone with California info, please feel free to contact me.
