Surnames: Coster, Taylor, Dolan, Resler, Taylor
Trying to find add'l info on my 2g gm Emma LNU. A contributor on a related thread in the Shelby Co forum suggested someone may be able to access Jennie Mae Taylor's marriage record to Marion Elmer Resler to see if there is any info about her parents. See below.

Here's what I "know" about Emma: Born about 1864 in Indiana. Unmarried & had dau Jennie about 1880 in Camden, Grant Co. Married Jep Taylor about 1886. Married Jack Dolan before 1830. Died prob Shelby Co, IN prob aft 1945. Dau Jennie Mae "Taylor" married Marion Elmer Resler abt 1897 in Indiana.

Some add'l possibly related facts and guesses:

Emma's middle name may have been Maud.

1880 census for Indiana, Carroll county, Delphi township, pages 20 and 21, shows Emma Coster and parents all born in England.

Emma A Coster married Joseph F Taylor in Carroll county on 11 Dec 1888, source is book 9, page 363. (possible link to Jep Taylor)

Jennie Taylor married Marion Resler (Rusler is a mis-transcription) in Grant county on 3 Mar 1897, source is book 11, page 323.

1900 census shows Emma Taylor's parents as born in England. (nsure of this reference - see the Shelby Co forum)

1910 census Dist 0170, Richland, Scott Co, MO, has Jennie married to Marion E. Resler showing Jennie's parents born in Indiana. (they had moved to MO by then where their dau Clara m my gf Olpha Ray Vick, Sr.)

1930 census Shelbyville Dist 1, Shelby Co., Ind has Emma Dolan, age 66, b. Ind, parents b OH, wife of John J. Dolan age 61, b. MN, parents b IL. (is this my Emma?)

1940 - 1945: no record of Indiana death of Emma Dolan. (my dad recalled she died about 1943)

1971 obit for Mrs. Jennie Resler, Kokomo Tribune, 23 Feb 1971 says she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jep Taylor. (this is my Jennie)

So, who was Emma? I posted a 1920 pic of her, dau, granddaughter and gg grandson (my dad) on facebook page Ancestors of Shelby County, Indiana.
