Trying to find information on Jacob M. Flury and his wife Catherinr Rees. They moved to Cass county with an un-named son between 1864 and 1867. They were married in Elkhart county Indiana in 1864 and show up on the 1870 census in Penn township. In that census, federal 1870, thery list:
Henry Flury 5
Emma Flury 3
Almeda Flury 1
Johnathon Reese 35 (Catherine's brother)
Since Henry was born in Michigan there are a few things that can be drawn from this....1( They must have moved to Cass county in 1865. Catherines obit says thwy were married in 1865 and when they moved to Cass county they had their son with them.
I think that the three daughters who died there were:
Mary Jane Flury August 15, 1869-September 8, 1883
Emma L Flury May 12, 1867 - August 1879
Sara C Flury October 12, 1872 - September 1880
Sada G Flury March 1876 - September 4, 1878
All four daughters are being shown as dieing befor the family moved on to Nabraska.
The obit also says that they joined the Christin Church in 1873.
Any info on them will be greatfully appreciated.Thanks
