I am trying to untangle a mess, and wondered if anyone else is researching this line. I have an Emma W. CARLE from Logansport (no name of parents or date of birth), who married a John H. BROWN on April 22, 1897 in Cass County, Indiana. By July, 1897, the death records show several entries for a Jonathan BROWN which appear to have some errors in them (a total of 4 entries appearing to be for the same person). By 1898, Emma gives birth to a son, Frederick W. BROWN. By the 1900 census, Emma is married to Patrick KELLY of Fort Wayne, and is showing on the 1900 census for Allen County in his household, along with 2 year old Frederick, listed as step-son. In subsequent censuses, Frederick has become a KELLY.
The only other info I've been able to find on Emma CARLE is a marriage announcement in Fort Wayne, listing her attendants as "Miss CAHILL" identified as her sister from Logansport, and a Mr. John RYAN.
If anyone is researching this CARLE line and could help me out, I'd love some info on her parentage and date of birth.
