States: Indiana: Benton
Searching for information on James Luckey and his wife Sophy L. Purvis. She was born 1 April 1798 Amherst Co., Va. d. prior to 1850 census in Elkhart Co., Ind. They had children: George, Samuel Murphy, Robert Joseph Kincaid md. Abigail---, Mary Elizabeth, Emily, James, William, Ann, Sophia, Jane. The census says Benton Township. I have been told there was no Benton Township in Elkhart Co. James Luckey was a farmer and Robert, James and William were helping him farm. Other children at home in 1850 were Mary, Ann, Sophia, and Jane. By the 1860 census, Robert is married. Mary Elizabeth, James, William and Jane were still at home and Jane was attending school. Can anyone help with further information? It would be much appreciated.
