Please any one answer if you have an idea what I might of found or some family data or answers for me. I have been searching the family of my great great grandmother Ellen Jane Helt.
So I look again in the LSD free 1880 census and see mygreat great grand father is not married to her yet he is home and he is 23.
I decide to start to page around at the house holds in the same area for clues.
I find this family in this order 11 house holds down in 1880 LSD in West Ward Sunbury Pa.
Gideon LANDAW husband Hester LANDAWwife 38
Kids Emma M LANDAW 10 John LANDAW26 William LANDAW23 Adam LANDAW6 Clara LANDAW1
ELLEN J HILT 18daugther at home
Could this be my Ellen J HELT? Why is she a daughter of a LANDAW? Not listed as a Step daugther but a daugther? It seems that the mother of this crew is not old enought to have a son 26 years old. Maybe this is the husbands second marriage to her and maybe its her second marriage? I Think this might be the family ofmy great great grandmother but she she is not a LANDAW. Maybe she was married once and widowed at the age of 18? But I don't think so its is some thing about the mother Hester she is too young for the oldest boy and maybe boys. Ellen J HILT is probably her daughter. But was that her maiden name or was she married and widowed ? Please any answers. Thank you Jeanie
