I was searching for my husband's kinfolks - Charles and Rose Wilson and I came across this in the 1880 census.
In Beetown, Grant County, Wisconsin in 1880 there was a family consisting of: Charles Wilson, farmer, age 62 - listed as married but no wife in this list. Charles Wilson, son, age 23, single also farming Melda MOYLE, daughter age 26, listed as divorced
Does anyone know which Moyle Melda married?
It's interesting to me because my great-grandfather, William Moyle came to Grant County, Wisconsin in 1845 with his mother and step-father, Henry Cardew.By 1880 he was married and living with his family in Franklin County, Iowa.
