Martha Ellen McCollum was in Marshall Co IN by 1862, proven by letters she wrote to other McCollum persons. In 1864 she married Paul Williams (she is mistakenly listed with surname of McCollins on marriage record). He had joined the Union Army there in 1861 & was from NY. They resided in Marshall Co until at least 1880 as they are on the census there. Then they relocated to Newton Co IN by 1900 and lastly, he appeared as a widow on the 1920 census for Lake CO IN. I have searched for death info for them and have not found anything.
Martha Ellen was b May 1838 in OH. Paul was b Mar 1837 in NY. I cannot place either of them in a family prior to their marriage. I have researched their 7 children but still nothing that leads me to families for Martha Ellen and Paul.
I am desparate for assistance. Much thanks.
