I am seeking information on a John Brandt Jr. who lived in Richmond IN in the late 1850's and early 1860's. He worked for the railroad as Gen. Supt. of the Cincinnati & Chicago Line. His wife died in 1858 or 1859 and he remarried a Maggie Spinney or Spinning. I found a marriage record for the correct time period for a John Brandt & Maggie Laurimore. I presume this could have been her married name and she was a widow.
