I have trying to determine parentage of my gt. grandmother Elminna (Elmina) Good born in 1833 Lehigh, Whitehall Township , Pa. without success.
A check of census records reveals that there was a Mary Good in Lehigh, Allentown, with two small children: 1 m, 5-9 and 1 f, 5-9.
Mary was listed as being between 30 and 39.
Elminna would have been about 7. This would fit.
Who was the husband of this widow?
There were a bunch of individuals who left Lehigh county, Pa. and went into Southern Illinois in the late 1840's.
Elminna abt. 17 is in home of a David Staminger and wife Catherine in the 1850 census of Wabash County, Illinois.
Can anyone help me on this? Would truly appreciate it!
