I am trying to identify the second (2) husband of Katherine (MAXWELL / MAXON) NICHOLS AMA (EIGHMEY?).
In the 1850 census of Spring township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, William H. Nichols, age 19, Samuel N. (Simon?) Nichols, age 14, and J. W. Nichols, age 9, natives of Pennsylvania, were enumerated with Catharine Ama, age 50, native of New York.8 Catharine's age certainly agrees with the age category of the woman in the 1840 census. The surname Ama may have been the surname of her second husband.
Who was her second husband? What happened to him and Katherine? She disappears from the census after 1850.

Additional information on this woman.

In addition to what I posted previously, I found in 1860 a Catherine EIGHMY, age 57, native of Rhode Island, residing in Summerhill Twp. In 1870, I found her in the Crawford County Poor House, age 68, native of Rhode Island, illiterate.
