Hello List Since posting this query in Nov. I have had an answer from a very nice man in Mishawaka, Indiana. Mr. Irvin Morse I wish to thank you very much for your help in finding answers to my question. But now, I'm faced with more questions and they are: Margaret A. Pickens shows on the 1870 Kosciusko Co. census with three children, the youngest is 11 months old. She shows as being born in Ohio and the children born in Idiana. the census does not list a husband or head of house. How would I find out who her husband was and if he was dead or alive at the time of this census? Hiram Spicer b. abt 1818 in Penn. wife Lydia ? b. Ohio abt 1829. 5 children all b. Indiana. this family also shows on the 1870 Kosciusko Co census. Seems like they should show on the 1860 census in Idiana but I haven't been able to find them. They do not show anywhere in Ohio on the 1850 census. and I have no idea what older censuses show.
Can someone please help me find answers to these and other question?
