I am looking for information about the family of John H. BERNARD and Mary Elizabeth (Calhoun) WELKER BERNARD RALSTON who lived in Miami County, IN. John was born about 1854 in OH, died 1889 in Miami County. Mary was born in 1858 in Fulton County, IN, died unknown. Her parents were James and Sarah (Wilhelm) CALHOUN.
John and Mary were married on 7/16/1884 in Miami County. They had one daughter Lillian, born 2/15/1887, in Miami County. John died on 8/23/1889 in Miami County.
Mary later married a James R. RALSTON and they appear in the 1900 census living in Benton Harbor, Berrien County, MI. Also, in the household are Lillian BERNARD and and another daughter Rosa (b. 6/23/1882) from Mary's 1st marriage to Jacob WELKER. Rosa is listed with the BERNARD surame in the 1900 census.
I have no information on Mary, Lillian, or Rosa after the 1900 census. I did find James RALSTON living alone in Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, MI in the 1930 census. He died there in 1937.
I would like to learn more about any members of this family. I am glad to share what I have on my Calhoun ancestors. Thank you.
