Re: PAUTSKY/PAUTZKE, Wm. m. Mary Townsend
I don't know if we are of the same family but my GG Grandmother's name was Elizabeth Maria Townsend.
She married Ferdinand Aquilla Wheeler 5-31-1849 in Brown County, Il.
In the 1850 Adams Co census is lists:
Ferdinand A. as age 27
Elizabeth M. as age 20
Their baby son Aquilla Benson as 2 or 3 months
and a little girl Emily Blevins as age 10 or 11 living with them.
Do you know if Elizabeth Maria Townsend would have been your family?
