I believe we are on the right track.I may be wrong on Silas wife last name. But in the 1880 US census, her first name was Mary A., cant remeber were I got Carver. but I believe we have the same person. Eli married a Mary Trombley.the spelling of all name are different on the census.
I will follow up on this one.Thank you, if you have anymore information, please let me know.
