I am trying to find the identity of the parents of the five unknown Dudley children that were listed on the 1850 Census in Miami, Montgomery County, Ohio with the family of Thomas and Elizabeth Stutler (aka Thomas Stettler) and their four children. The name given to these children was Duolly, but upon reading the actual Census, I believe it was Dudley.
The children were: Marry Dudley, age 11, Catharine, age 9, Sarah, age 7, Henry, age 4, and Andrew, age 3/12. On the 1860 Census of Thomas Stitler (aka Thomas Stettler), these children were listed with the last name of Stitler.
I am wondering if maybe their mother died soon after the birth of Andrew and Thomas and Elizabeth Stettler might have adopted them. Does anyone know the answer?
