I am looking for information on Henry Nash born 1822 and Emma Decker born about 1830, They lived in Lapeer county and were married in 1850 and had a son Albern in 1851. Then I loose all track of them. Their son was raised by the Stroumn Family who lived near Corneilus Decker until 1870 or so.

Thanks for the info,
I've been over these records a million times as you can see this Henry Nash was married to Emma Decker, in 1850.
They were not living together but they both sighned the census that they married in the last year,
Then from 1860 on they disappear. (Although a Henry O Nash appears later on)
I am sure that Albren Nash is Emma Nash's son due to the fact in the 1880 census he names Frank Decker as his cousin. And when I looked at the census for 1860 & 1870 the Storum family live next to the Decker Family.

I really want to find out what happend to them between 1850 and 1860, by working theory is Emma died in child birth
and Cornelius Decker took care of the grandchild.
