I'm looking for a Samuel MAY who married a Mary GARBER in ,Vigo, IN on 12 Apr 1872. They had one child, Sherman Franklin MAY born in late 1872. Mary GARBER (and children from a previous marriage) are found in 1870 census in Fayette, Vigo, IN. In 1880, she's listed in Clinton, Vermillion, IN (as head of the household without Samuel MAY).

That's it for hard facts. As for leads:

There is a 56 yr old Samuel MAY (without a family of his own) in the 1870 census in the same town (Fayette) as Mary Garber and I suspect that may be him. - I think this may be the same Samuel MAY that married a Delilah DEPEE in 1850 in , Vigo, IN. and is found in several internet postings as a child of Henry (Henrich) MAY of Rockingham, Virginia.

If anyone has any info to help me know for sure if this is the fellow I'm looking for, it'd be appreciated.
