have record of marriage for Ellen UPDIKE & Charles A. VOORHEES on 12-25-1866 in Jersey Co. Illinois and also a Sarah H. UPDIKE and a John (Joseph) B. VOORHEES on 5-18-1864 also in Jersey Co. Illinois
Would anyone know who the parents were for Ella and Sarah.Looking in the 1880 US Census both families remain in Jersey Co. I think that Ellen and Sarah may have been sisters and the VOORHEES brothers or cousins. in the 1880 census living next door to Charles VOORHEES and his wife Ella (Updike)VOORHEES is a Wesley UPDIKE age 39, born N.J. and his family, this may be a brother to Ella. Also close by is a Jasper UPDIKE age 42, born New Jersey and his family.Keep in mind that Wesley and Jasper may actually be Middle names.would appreciate any additional information on this line.
