My great grandfather, Warren M. Fales, was born 7 Mar 1840. The family says he was born in New York State, but his birthplace is listed as Iowa on an 1880 census report. He served in an Iowa regiment in the Civil War from 1861-1863 when he received a disability discharge. One of his children was said to have been born in Souix City, Iowa. A younger child was probably born in Nevada. Warren died in Placerville, California on 5 June 1910. I need to know who his parents were, and confirm his place of birth. Can anyone help?  Don Carsten
