Need to find further information on the marriages of the following:
Euphemia Drake m:1-9-1845 to James Bailey Maryann Drakem: 10-3-1844 to John MacKay Phebe Drakem: 11-9-1847 to William Matthews
I did find William and Phebe Matthews in the 1850 Census, living next door to John and Mary Drake in Erie/Peru, Miami Co., OH, with a daughter, Nancy Matthews.Where did they go from there?
Can not locate Euphemia or Maryann.I do know that Euphemia ended up traveling through the plains in 1854 and ended up in Sacramento, CA, but again, I can not find her on the census.According to letters in the family, Euphemia divorces her husband and adopts all the children out, with one (Mary) returning to her by 1860.I have been looking for the names of the children, unknown how many.
I believe all three women were the daughters of John and Mary Drake who ended up settling in Black Earth, Dane Co., WI, along with their sons Samuel and John.
I hope someone can assist me in my search.Thank you for your time.
