I am interested in Phoebe Ann Rich, the Rich family and the Tuell family.
Phoebe Ann Rich is my 2nd gr grandmother.She first married my gr gr grandfather Andrew Husband in Union County, Iowa in 1879.The marriage record in that county lists her as Phoebe Solomon.However, her actual maiden name was Rich.Trying to explain the change to Solomon is one of my problems.I have found indications that her father died in 1863.I suspect her mother remarried someone named Solomon and he moved the family to Iowa, but of course this must be verified.The marriage to Andy Husband produced two children Ida May (my gr grandmother) and James. This marriage ended sometime in the late 1880s.She then married someone from Sweden named Joseph Fraensen.They had one daughter named Suzanne.
I have found Phoebe in the 1860 Jackson County, IN census.She is also located in the 1900 Louisa County, Iowa, Wapello City census, the 1920 Des Moines County, Iowa census and the 1930 Henderson County, IL census.I have found a death record for Phoebe Fraensen in the Illinois state database.Date of death was 7-18-1937.
I'm very interested in anyone who might have info on Phoebe herself, on her mother's family which I believe to be Sarah Tuell, her father's family David Rich, and how the name Solomon came into play.
