Re: Morningstar married the Widow Brakebeal after 1837

Ben's homestead in Nebraska would have been between 1876 and 1883.
Georgie Johnson lived with an older sister when he first moved to Des Moines.
Sarah Morningstar Johnson's sons also included Willie and Frank.She was born 13 Mar 1847 and died in 1927 in California.
Ben Morningstar was born 24 May 1849.
Ed Morningstar was born in 1857.
"the Widow Brakebeal" was born in 1815 and died in Des Moines in 1909.
The Morningstar family I am looking for was probably Pennsylvania Dutch and the last name may have been Morgenstern originally.
Any help would be appreciated.
