Need help locating further information of the following:
Moved to Hiram, Portage County, Ohio circa 1835-1838

Hiram Cadwell b. cir 1793 CT
Desire (Buttles) Cadwell, b. circa 1803 CT

Sylvia Cadwell, b. circa 1821 CT
Jane Cadwell, b. cir 1824 CT
Harin Cadwell, b. cir 1828 CT (could be Hiram? Harris?)
Charles Cadwell, b cir 1830-31 CT
Mary Cadwell, b. cir 1833 CT
William Cadwell, b. cir 1835 CT
Hellen May Cadwell, b. May 4, 1838 Ohio (my ancestor)
Florence Cadwell, b. cir 1839 Ohio
Richard "Dick" Cadwell, b. cir 1841 Ohio (GAR vet?)

Information above is gleaned from the 1840 & 1850 census. However, this family all (with the exception of Hellen who married in 1856 to Aaron Holcomb)seem to have dropped right off the face of the earth after 1850!!! Aaron and Hellen are found in the 1860 census, and then returned to Connecticut between 1863 and 1866, but I find no indication that any of the others did the same. I also have a letter written by a relative that indicated that (at least) Dick had remained in Ohio and was a GAR vet. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
