I'm looking for FRANCES KEPLER b. ca 1825 in OH. According to family members, she was an orphan "reared by a wealthy family." In about 1845, Frances married JOHN GODFREY MOORE b. ca 1813 in PA (could be Berks Co?) but this marriage date is based only on the 1870 Coles Co., IL census listing showing dob of son William b. 1846 in OH. The youngest child of Frances and John MOORE was born in 1865 in OH, so this couple left for IL between 1865-1869. Frances and John's daughter Mary Alice MOORE was b. 1854 "near Columbus, OH" - Pickaway Co., OH has been mentioned by family members, but I don't know if that is correct. Mary Alice Moore married David B. WELLS in 1869 in Coles Co., IL.
Living with them in the 1870 census is
David Wells 31 KY Farmer
Alice 17 OH Keep House
Potts, Marion 22 OH Labor
Merriman, Sarah 21 VA Domestic
ANY help, advice, hints, etc you might have on this search for FRANCES KEPLER (also trying to find the couple John and Frances Moore with children in 1860 OH census) would be greatly appreciated.
