I would like proof that Commodore, born 1825 in KY, is the son of Benjamin.He married Eliza Mershon, daughter of Cornelius, on 12/9/1847 and is listed in the 1850 Jones Co., IA census as being 25. Where did he die? I pick Eliza up living with her daughter in Chicago after 1900. She died in 1914.
Does anyone know if he had siblings?Was his mother Christiana Powell?I have not found a birth record.
