I am looking for descendants of Emily Harrod and William Staples, who married in Jefferson County, IN on Sept 26, 1835. Known children of this union include: Mary (b. 1838 Jefferson County, IN), Marion (b. 1842 Jefferson County, IN), Sarah E. (b. 1843 Jefferson County, IN), Margaret Ann (b. 1845 Hancock County, IL, married William E. Cook), Rebecca Jane (b. 1846 Hancock County, IL, married Fielding McDonald), Martha J. (b. 1848 Hancock County, IL, married Chalrles W. Purvis), Harriet E. (b. 1850 Hancock County, IL), and Viola (b. 1854 Hancock County, IL)
Following the death of William Staples in 1854, his widow Emily remarried Hardy Wells in 1860 in Hancock county, IL. After this, no record can be found of this couple until Hardy Wells' death in Otoe County, Nebraska in 1879. I am hopeful that through descendants of William Staples and Emily Harrod, I can trace Emily after 1860. Thanks.
