I'm hoping someone can help fill in the gaps concerning the family of Benjamin C. Needham who was born about 1815 in New York State.

It appears that Charlotte, Isom (or at least that's what the name looks like), and Alice may have passed on after the birth of Chas. W. in abt 1854. Can any one help with this information?
Benjamin marries Harriet James and together they have Emma Alice in about 1866 in Vermont.
Emma married Melvin Dubois on 31 Aug 1882 and she gave birth to son Aurthur on 17 Mar 1884, but by 1885 Melvin has passed. She remarries in Feb 1889 to Lyman Church.
I would be interseted in hearing from anyone who has more parts to this puzzle. Thanks
