Karla, More info on the descendants of Eliza Depew and Martin McBride Scruggs.If you go to Indiana Marriages on the Internet, you will find that it states Eliza and Martin were married on 15 Sept. 1834.That is incorrect.It is the date the license was issued.They were married on 18 Sept. 1834.I have copies of both original documents as proof.
Martin McBride Scruggs b: 1 Feb 1806, Green Co., TN, d: 25 Nov. 1886 in KS. NOTE: The 1880 FC of Otter TWP, Cowley Co., KS lists him living with his daughter Judith Scruggs Miller.I suspect he is buried in North Cedar Creek Cem. along with Judith and her husband, Elisha Miller.I have visited that cemetery and there is no headstone.Also talked to the caretaker and they keep no record of who is buried there, only those that have purchased lots.He could also have been buried in Dallas Co., IA beside Eliza, but have never found proof.
