Francis Maria Vandercook BARNARD
I am trying to uncover the parentage of Frances Maria "Maria" Vandercook. I thought she was a daughter of Francis Henry and Catherine M. Vandercook but it seems they had a daughter, Hepsebah Ann, born the same year.
Maria was born 14 August, 1838 in either Indiana or Ohio and died 19 May, 1907 in Cerro Gordo Co., IA. She married John BARNARD 7 August, 1869 in Carroll Co., IN. Their children were Linus Duff Barnard, Clarence Emerson Barnard, Francis Horace Barnard, John D. Barnard, Lucy Inez Barnard and Don Carlos Barnard.
The only census I can find her listed in is 1850, as follows:
1850 US Census for District 9, Carroll Co., IN
Taken 31 July, 1850
Roll Number: M432_137
Page Number and Letter: 257A
Image Number: 141
Dwelling Number: 110
Household ID Number: 110
Reference Number: 36
34. Frazier Duff, 48
35. Sabina Duff, 53
36. Frances M Vandercook, 13
Since her first child was given Duff as a middle name, there is a possibility that Frazier and Sabina may have been Maria's maternal grandparents.
