Trying to track down accurate information about Edward Packer (1796 or '99 to 1875) and his wife, Ellen Fulton...especially her, since all I have is a birthdate of 1800...nothing else. They lived in Howard Township, Centre Co. PA and at least two of their sons moved and settled in McLeod County, MN.
I would like to learn where Edward and Ellen are buried,, and what her death date was.Their son, John Packer (1823 - 1866) is the next in line in the family I am following.Doing research for my nephew's wife, who is a descendant.
I found Edward and Ellen on the 1850 census in Centre County, and on the 1870, but could never find them on the 1860.Apparently their name must have been so butchered by the census taker that it doesn't show up in the census indexes in any form I recognize.
If anyone can help in any way, I would be most appreciative
