Gene,

My GG grandmother was Nancy Jane TAYLOR b. 21 Jun 1829 Decatur Co., IN, d. 6 Aug 1906 New Lebanon, Cooper Co., MO, bd. New Lebanon Cumberland Presbyterian Ch. Cem., Cooper Co., MO. Nancy was married 2 Nov 1848 in Bartholomew Co., IN to my GG grandfather Sylvanus P. DOWNS b. 25 Aug 1826 Newcastle Twp., Coshocton Co., OH, d. 21 Feb 1900 New Lebanon, Cooper Co., MO, bd. New Lebanon Cumberland Presbyterian Ch. Cem., Cooper Co., MO.
Sylvanus & Nancy lived in Clinton Co., IN & Tippecanoe Co., IN before moving to Cooper Co., MO after the Civil War.

Nancy Jane's sister, Sarah A. TAYLOR b. Jan 1832 Decatur Co., IN, d. 10 Aug 1907 Carthage, Jasper Co., MO, bd. Park Cemetery, Carthage, Jasper Co., MO, was married 18 Oct 1850 in Circuit Court, Clinton Co., IN to Sylvanus' brother, William C. DOWNS b. 28 Jun 1828 Newcastle Twp., Coshocton Co., OH, d. 4 Apr 1909 Carthage, Jasper Co., MO, bd. Park Cemetery, Carthage, Jasper Co., MO.

I really hope that you have info about Nancy Jane & Sarah A. TAYLOR because I have no knowledge about their parents.
See the census records below.

Sincerely,

Fred Downs
