Jerusha her husbands' and all their children. Can you help me?

I am researching for information regarding my great, great, great grandmother, Jerusha Howell. Jerusha was born about 1829 in NY. Her father was born in VT and her mother in MA, though I do not know their names yet.

Jerusha Howell first married Frances Bostwick about 1845 in NY. They had at least four children:
Armenia born 1846 in NY
Henry born 1848 in MI
Mary born 1851 in MI
Jane born 1858 in MI.

Between 1858 when Jane was born and 1860 when Martin V. Cole is on the census with Jerusha, they were married.

Martin V. Cole and Jerusha Howell had at least two children:
Mira born 1863 in MI
Martin V. born 3 Jun 1865 in MI.
Martin V. Sr. disappears after 1865. Perhaps dying during the civil war?
