I research the Kellar and Prather families, Uriah Clark Prather married Harriet A. Eldridge, who was a younger sister to Emma or Emily Eldridge.Emma and Harriet were daughters of Sandford Eldridge that married Jane Jaquith in Dearborn. Emma married John William Lambertson in Jennings County, Indiana in 1864 and they resided in Dearborn County. After Uriah Clark Prather died in Minnesota, about 1889 and Harriet Eldridge Prather came back to Indiana to Madison County, Indiana where she married Isaac D. Bosworth and they then moved to Florida, Isaac died in 1916 in Florida and Emma Lambertson loss her husband about 1915, and Emma moved to Florida to live with Harriet. They can both be found on the 1920 Florida census. Harriet died in 1921 and shortly thereafter Emma Lambertson moved back to Dearborn County and died 1940, she was at one time the oldest citizen there. I am wanting to see if Harriet Eldridge Prather Bosworth is mentioned in the papers in Dec. 1921 or Jan. 1922 in Dearborn as Emma was living there and if there is an obituary of Emma Lambertson in 1940 in Dearborn County, Indiana. Did not know if Dearborn has they obits indexed.
Sorry for such a long message.
Thanks in advance.
