Thanks again! No, "they" never make it easy! I always advise beginners in genealogy to stock up on tranquilizers before starting. I've visited the graves of Melissa (unmarked) and Thomas and Mary L. Bacon in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, but got no replies to my questions. I'm fairly sure Morris is buried in an unmarked grave there, too, but, for reasons not known to me, under the name "Charles." I did call the probate court in Darke County to ask about the lawsuit. Was told the file, if it exists, would be on microfilm, and the microfilm might be in storage in Pennsylvania. However, having this 1850 census is a great breakthrough, and I really appreciate your help! Will try to work backward and forward from there. It is more likely that Eveline died than that she was married before 1860. Don't know why Melissa would be called "Alena," but I guess that's another challenge.
