Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 274, Prairie Township, White County, Indiana

"EDWARD MAUD, deceased, was native of England, born in 1824, and was the son of JOHN MAUD, who was largely interested in stone quarries. EDWARD received a fair education and was brought up to farm labor. He was married in England to JANE WARING, and he and wife came to this country in 1856, and for two or three years lived in Philadelphia. They made several changes of residence, and finally settled in this township in 1870. Here MR. MAUD ended his days in 1871, a member of the English Church. His widow continues to farm the 160 acres of fine prairie land on Section 23."
