Seeking birth & death information on Christopher & his first wife, Amelia.
He may have been born in 1821 in Ohio and could have possibly died around 1899 either in Louisa County, Iowa or nearby. The widow's pension was filed on 20 Jul 1899 in Iowa, however, he was divorced by 1880 from his 2nd wife who collected it.
Amelia was born abt 1824 in Maryland but am unable to find any kind of death & burial information on her. She did appear in the 1850 census with Christopher and 3 children but he was remarried by 1855.
