Thanks for the return information however I am trying to find out what happened to Phebe and to the children of Aaron Brake and Phebe Sparks after 1879.. Mary is Aaron's sister and I have that data. Aaron died in 1879; in the 1880 census Phebe was not listed (I couldn't find her) but her son Marshall age 17 was listed in the household of Isaac & Mary Sparks. The other children of Aaron & Phebe were not listed anywhere that I could find.
So I am trying to trace what happened to Phebe and her younger children after 1879. Zepporah Brake Stanford was the oldest daughter of Aaron and Phebe and she is my grt grandmother , Phebe being my grtgrtgrandmother. I have data concerning Zepporah and her family but have hit a wall as to where Phebe and the other children ended up. Rumor has it Phebe died in Union Co., OH but no date. Perhaps she remarried? The younger children, one of them was only 2 years old when Aaron died.
If you can lead me on a little further I would certainly appreciate it.

thanks shirley
