I would appreciate it if some kind soul would look up two Middaughs for me.
Frank/Franklin, b. Sep 1855, d. 14 Aug 1942
Clara, b. 24 Jul 1887, d. 9 Aug 1972
Clara was Frank's second wife, I hope. They both died in Preble County. I got their death dates from an Ohio death index, which did not list spouse or age. Their names fit, but I’m not sure the two I found are the two I have from the census. I’m looking for confirmation that these two were indeed married. Clara’s maiden name and parents, and Frank’s parents would be nice too.
This is what I have found so far.
In 1880 Frank and his first wife are in El Dorado, Preble, Ohio

There is a Franklin Middaugh on the Ohio Death Index, who died 14 Aug 1942. He could be our Frank.
