I wish I had more knowledge about Melissa's "Wisconsin doings." She was married to Andrew HUDSON (according to "Wisconsin Marriages, pre-1907") on 1 Apr 1872, in Iowa County, WI. Since she was born in 1851, that would make her (+-)21 yrs old. According to the 1880 census, they were living in Cedar County, Nebraska, & she was listed as 28 & her name was shown as "Millissee." Daughter Jennie was listed as 2 yrs old & having been born in WI. So they moved from WI after 1878. My grandmother was born when they lived in Dunn Co., Mazominie, as was dau. Jennie. Andrew HUDSON was a farmer.
