I'm looking for both descendants and ancestors in my Drysdale line.
The 1880 census has in IL
Cornelius Drysdale, Single, age 17, b. IN Rebecca Drysdale, Mother, widow, age 52 b.IN Malissa C. Drysdale, sister, single, age 15, b. IN Martha E. Drysdale, sister, single, age 13, b. IN Abasalom* H. Drysdale, brother, single, age 10, b.IN
*Should be Absalom
Cornelius (Neal) m. 14 Oct 1885 Sarah E. Martin children: Oscar & Carl
Rebecca d.27 Jan 1908
Malissa (Lissa) m. Edd Eppler children:Edd, Ealoner, Frances, Kate
Martha (Mattie) m.Albert Murch Wilson b. 1863 OHshe d.2 Dec 1957 KS children:Ethel, Murch, Roy, Hollis, Mayme, Newton, Faye
They had at least two half-sisters, Mary Drysdale, b.1848 d. 1948 m. G.B. Williams and Matilda (Tilda)Drysdale b. bef 1866
I believe that Rebecca had a sister named Mary and that Rebecca's husband had a sister whose married name was Hattie Watts.
I would very much like to know Rebecca's maiden name, and the name of her husband.I'd also like to correspond with any of their descendants.
