Hi Sharon, I don' have information on your Elizabeth, but I was wondering if you have found Jared's parents yet? I did find out from the 1880 census that Elizabeth who married Phillip Michael did not die in Decatur Co., Indiana like I thought. She was living with her son Silas Michael and his 2nd wife in Mercer Co., Missouri. So she probably died in Mercer Co., MO. I still feel that Jared is the son of Phillip Michael and Mary Evans. Phillip and Elizabeth also had a son Jared Michael who married Lavinia Fox. I think your Jared and my Phillip are brother's.
