We have finally found our elusive 2nd grandfather. Now we are trying to add/find as much information on him as possible. He was from Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania and after the CW he moved to Lebanon, Clinton County, Michigan where he was enumerated on the agricultural schedule page 5 line 7. from 30 June 1870. He at some time before his move to Kansas, married an Elizabeth L Simmons or Simpson (according to his third wife's pension application). Elizabeth is enumerated with him in 1875 Kansas census under the name of Dollinds. She is reported as being from New York in this census. She killed her self by cynide in 1883. We believe her date of birth to be around 1842. We are not sure if the last name Simmons is her married or maiden name that was given to John Dollinds third wife Jenny Baldwin. But, we would love for some one to look at the marriage certificates and see if they can find one for John S Dollins or Dollinds between 1867-1875.

Many states at the time in question only kept records in ledger books. NO certificate was issued.
