I am looking for any and all information on the family of Benjamin Launder. He was born in England 11/11/1818, d: 8/8/1878 in Hancock, OH. He came to the US prior to 1840. He married Margaret (surname unk)who was born in Oh 7/25/1823, d: 8/30/1880. (I believe they married around 1840, since their first child was born in 1841 and Margaret was only 17 at the time) Their children:
Elisabeth b:1/19/1841, d:7/9/1886 (married Franklin Williams)
Henry b: abt 1842 (married Sarah ?)
Martha J. b: abt 1843
Mary A. b: abt 1845
Michael D. b:8/30/1847, d:9/1/1848
Eliza E. b: abt 1848, d: 9/8/1851
Sarah b: abt 1849
Margaret b: 10/1852, died at 1 day old
Robert D. b:7/10/1855, d:6/11/1931 (married Kate ?)
Amanda C. b: abt 1857 d: bet.1888 and 1900 (married John R. Williams)
Rebecca R. b:1/31/1859, d: 4/15/1860
Jackson H. b: 1/19/1861, d: 8/12/1864

Amanda C. Launder and John R. Williams were my g-g-g-grandparents. I have found little to no information on her. I believe she died in Hancock Co., but cannot find her in any cemetery listings. If anyone has any information on these families, please contact me. Thanks
