======================================================

Jennings County, Indiana, borders Bartholomew Co., IN. The 1850 census of Bartholomew shows a young Rebecca E. Margason or Morgason, apparently orphaned, living with the Michael Lewis family. Rebecca's mother Elizabeth was married briefly to Lewis before her death. Rebecca E. Margason married Marcus Linzy Taylor and had Sarah E. Taylor, my grandmother. She married Grant Lamb in Vincennes, IN.

Rebecca Taylor named her first son Joseph. Was Joseph Margason her father?

This is the only land Margason land patent in Indiana.
