has Dora. All Pat has is Dora'a name, however, and lots of WORTMAN data.
has her name as
ZELPHIA DORA WAGONSELLER
and their marriage 29 JAN 1872, Sullivan, Indiana
In the 1870 census for Haddon, Sullivan, Indiana, is this odd household:
Vance, James, 44, farmer, N. Carolina
----, Emeline, 47, keeping home, Ohio
----, Sarah, 1, ----, Indiana
Wagonseller, Dora, 21, at home, Illinois
"Odd" because 46 is awfully old to be having children, so little Sarah might be a niece, grand-daughter, or Dora's natural child.
If Dora was a servant, it would say so. She may be a niece or a James' step-daughter.
Dora is still in Haddon in 1880. She says her mother was born in Illinois, so either she was wrong or Emeline there is not her mother.
