Trying to find more info on this family. I have not proven it is mine yet, but the names match my Enochs children and wife.

This family was found in Hancock 1850. Cannot find them in the 1860 In Hancock Co., yet Enoch and Mary had their first born September of 1860 in Illinois. Abt 1867 they were in Iowa, but the 1870 was back in Illinois according to the 1870 census showing youngest child of Enoch and Mary born in Iowa. All the census's I find them in, shows both Enoch and Mary being born in Indiana including their parents. The 1850 shows possible mother and siblings but she was born in Ohio. The siblings match all the names that Enoch and Mary named their children. Their is a possible link to NA in one of these surnames. We have always been told the NA comes through this family (Said it was through Graces parents. Grace was born in 1882 (My Great Grandma) and is the last child of Enoch and Mary Johnson- Morris.

Does this family match or fit into anyones? Does anyone know who the father was or Nancys maiden name?
