Searching for information on Emily Wilson b 14 Dec 1814 Bourbon County KY she married 1st Tobias Bickel 14 Apr 1833 Wayne County IN, 2nd marriage to John Caster. Her obituary below shows she moved to Indiana with her parents - but no names - I'm searching for her parents and/or siblings.

The Exponent
Pg. 3 Col. 3

October 29, 1884


Emily Wilson was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, December 14, 1814, and departed this life in Hagerstown, Indiana, October 26, 1884, near 70 years of age. She removed with her parents to Indiana in 1826, and settled on the farm where Jacob Mason's family now lives. Her first marriage was to Tobias Bickle, who died, leaving his wife and eight children. In after years she was united to John Castor, her now bereft husband; united with the Christian Church at Flat Rock, Henry County, in her youthful days. A number of years ago, she moved to this place and placed her membership in the Christian Church, and remained in fellowship with the church until her death, when she was removed to the Church triumphant to die no more. Her funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Wm. C. Bowen at the church to a large congregation. Text of the sermon was from First Thess., 4th chapter and 13th verse to end of chapter. She leaves behind an aged husband and her surviving children, all of whom are married, and many friends to mourn her loss. She was a good neighbor and kind companion and mother.
