Edward Ashwell and Elizabeth Wood ward

Classification: Query
Surnames: Woodward, Ashwell, Shinn
Looking for the biological parents of Elisha Ashwell Shinn. He is the adopted son of William and Martha Shinn.

Edward Ashwell and Elizabeth Woodward were married in Randolph co in 1850 and maybe they might be his parents, Elisha was born 1855. I BELIEVE Edward was born in Ohio and Elizabeth in Indiana because in the 1880 census for Elisha that is what is listed for his parents and it is not the same as William and Martha.
