England / Oberholtzer Family Genealogy
Posted by: Stan Edmunds (ID *****7290) Date: April 26, 2010 at 08:34:39
  of 285

I'm looking for information on Nathan England and his wife Margaret Oberholtzer.
Nathan was born August 19, 1813 in Ohio, likely Fairfield County where his parents Isaac England and Prudence Chilcote married in 1809.
In the 1840 census Nathan is in Wood County, Perry Twp. Ohio.
In the 1850 census, he and his wife Lorinda ( maiden name unknown ) are in Seneca County, Loudon Twp. Ohio.
In the 1860 census, Nathan is in Eaton County Michigan and his wife Lorinda is now deceased. Nathan married Margaret Oberholtzer on Nov. 28, 1859 in Eaton County.
In the 1870 census Nathan and Margaret are still in Eaton County.
In the 1878 Atlas of Osceola County Michigan, Nathan is documented as a native of Ohio and that he settled in Osceola County Michigan ib 1875.
Nathan had children from his previous marriage to Lorinda, but they did not follow him to Osceola County.
Nathan and Margaret had an unnamed daughter that was born after June 16, 1860 and died before the 1870 census.
they also had two sons. #1. William England 1864 - 1952 who married Henrietta Nipges first and second widow Gertrude Benedict.
#2. Elisha Solomon England 1876 - 1912 I know Elisha married Caroline Willis and they had several children, but I know very few details of this family and would enjoy communicating with anyone that could help me with them.

I know that Nathan England was killed on Sept. 4, 1881 in Osceola County, when a tree fell on him.

I know that Margaret remarried after his death to a Mr. George Thompson. They married April 5, 1882 and together had two sons
#1. John R. Thompson, B. May 1885
#2. George Thompson, B. May 1887
Mr. Thompson died between 1886 and 1900, does anyone know the exact date?
I do know that Margaret was still living April 20, 1910 but cannot find her after that date. Does anyone know when and where she died? Does anyone know where she is buried? Any help would be appreciated.
