Hi Don, As I mentioned in my previous post, Lydia Ann (Jewell) and husband Josiah H Tate were on the 1860 census of Terre Haute, Vigo Co, Indiana with their 7 children, the oldest being William T Tate at 19 which would put a marriage date of about 1841 for Lydia Ann Jewell to Josiah H Tate.
Evidently Josiah H Tate died sometime before 1863 as there is a marriage record in Vigo Co, Indiana for Lydia to Thomas Brookbank on 2 Apr 1863.
On the 1870 census for Thomas Brookbank in Honey Creek Twp, Vigo Co, Indiana it lists his wife Lidda A Brookbank 48 b. KY and the rest as follows: Margaret A Brookbank 19 Indiana - (my husband's great grandmother) Samantha Brookbank 16 Indiana Nancy J Brookbank 6 Indiana Mary Tate 15 Indiana Robert F Tate 10 Indiana
So Lydia Ann Jewell's marriage to Josiah H Tate was previous to her 2nd marriage to Thomas Brookbank in 1863.
Am seeking the marriage date and place of Lydia Ann to Josiah H - ca 1840-41 Indiana.
