I am stuck. I have traced back to my GGG Grandfather (Elijah Bryan Farnham) but can't find anything else.

I am searching for info on Elijah B. Farnham b. 5/1/1825 and married Ann Brough b. 2/1838. He was born in Chenango County NY and lived in Indiana and Ohio. He was a 49er in the Gold Rush era. He had 7 children, of those 5 daughters who were all born in Indiana;
1. Mary Frances Mood b. 1865
2. Adda Elle Nora Burch b. 1875
3. Carrie Bell Kirk b. 1870
4. Eva Jane Carter b. 1873
5. Amanda Florene Gracey b. 1877

I am mainly interested in who his parents (I believe his mohter was Amanda Bryan and her father was Richard Bryan)and/or siblings were and any info on her family too.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide me.
