Re: Emily Elizabeth Manchester

In Reply to: Emily Elizabeth Manchester by Noreen Wallace of 788

Noreen, I looked at some census records and found the Manchesters in 1860 Greene Co, Monroe, Wisconsin:
series m653 roll 1411 pg 326

A.Manchester 44 Farmer b.New Brunswick
Em. Manchester 47 b.Wales
Em.Williams 25 Wales
John Williams 23 Wales
Rachel Williams 21 Wales
Jane Williams 18 Illinois
Bet. Williams 14 Illinois
Henry Williams 11 Illinois
Car. Williams 10 Illinois
John Manchester 6 Illinois
Emi Manchester 4 Wisconsin
M.Manchester 2 Wisconsin

It seems Emma was first married to a Williams and second to Abraham. Next I checked the IL statewide marriage index available free online at http://www.library.sos.state.il.us/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html

MANCHESTER, GERO WILLIAMS, EMMA (EUNICE) 11/25/1852 00A/ 00000770 BOONE

MANCHESTER, ABRAHAM G RUSSELL, EMILY 09/26/1844 I/ WINNEBAGO

Looks like Abraham & Emma married in Boone Co 1852. Looks like he was also first married to someone else (Emily Russell)in 1844. She must have died because Abraham G. appears in the home of (his parents?)in 1850 Winnebago Co, Burritt roll 134 pg 338.

John Manchester 62 Farmer b.New Brunswick
Elizabeth Manchester 60 b.NB
Abraham Manchester (30?) b.NB
Charles Manchester 16 b.Canada

In 1870 Emma Manchester is the head of household in Green Co, Monroe, Wisconsin so I assume Abraham died between 1860-1870 either in Winnebago Co, IL or Green Co, WI.

1870 Green Co, Monroe
Emma Manchester 60 b.Wales
Elizabeth 23 b.IL
John 17 b.IL
Emily 15 b.WI
Martha 12 b.WI

By 1880 Emily Manchester is in CT:
