I have come across a Cinderella Sulcer who was the mother of my husband's G-G Grandmother, Mary Smith. I am wondering if anyone has found this name in their ancestry?
Here's what I know about her: A biography of one of her daughters, Adaline Starlin Brown, which appears in the "History of the Big Bend County (State of Washington), says this about Cinderella: "...the mother, Cinderella Sultzer (Sulcer), was born in Virginia on March 6, 1800 and when quite small, came with her father, Dr. Sultzer, to Kentucky, where he took a homsestad, the mouth of the famous Mammoth cave being on the claim. She removed thence to Ohio in 1845, and was married three times during her life. She was a relative of Abraham Lincoln. In 1865 her death occurred, the day being in February."
Further research has uncovered the following: She had the following husbands and children: (1) First marriage to a Griffin (Francis?) and had a son, Elijah, b. 1834; (2) Married George Starr, 1835 in Daviess Cnty, IN; (3) Married Jacob Smith, 1837, Davies Cnty, IN. Two children from this marriage: Mary Smith, b. in Greene Cnty, IN in 1841 and William Smith, b. 1844; (4) Married Israel Sterlin/Starlin and had Sarah Starlin, b. 1849 and Adaline Starlin, b. 1850, Greene Cnty, IN. Isreael was living in Butler Cnty, OH and married Cinderella after his first wife died in 1843.
I cannot find a Dr. Sulcer but do know that at one time, early 1800s, there was a hospital at the entrance to the Mammoth Cave. The waters were used for healing. Have found no record, however, of a Dr. Sulcer (Seltzer) in the Mammoth Cave history records. Cinderella came from Virginia to Kentucky, then to Indiana, Ohio and back to Indiana. The only census I find her in is the 1850 Greene Cnty, IN census with 4th husband Israel Sterlin/Starlin and children Elijah, Mary, William and Sarah.
Would like to connect her to a Sulcer family. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for any and all responses.
