I was searching for a possible connection to our MICHAEL family. I noticed that yours were from VA to IND also. Unless my math is wrong or I misread your post, Fredrick d. 1901 at73 and daughter, Sarah, d 1900 at 62. This would make him 10 when she was born.
My line is found in Decatur Co., IN 1850 Michael, Eli age 48 b. VA wife: Catherine 37 VA son: Isaac 16 IN dau: Emily15 IN dau: Elizabeth12 IN dau: Lavina10 IN dau: Rebecca8 IN son: Lafayette4 IN son: Andrew1 IN dau: Ann1 IN
I am searching for older children, as Eli was 48, and reports state this was second wife. Have you run across this family in your research?
