Shari, thanks for the info, but I already have this.I am guessing that James Cornell married Nancy Matilda in Mahoning co. c. 1848-49 as they are shown there in the 1850 census with one child aged 1 yr.They apparently did not marry in Columbiana co. In fact, it is the Elizabeth PHILLIPS listed with the CORNELL family in 1880 that interests me most.I suspect that she may be my long lost 3x gt. grandmother, widow of Andrew PHILLIPS.I have been unsuccessful in tracing this couple after they returned to Ohio from Parke co. IN sometime after 1851 or so. I was hoping to learn Nancy's maiden name from the marriage record.As you noticed there is a conflict of bp's if Elizabeth was indeed her mother. Any further suggestions would be welcome.
