I would really like to know if my ggg grandparents are linked to Elias and Mary Rossell. I cant help but think they are some relation to my ggg grandfather Theophilus. Maybe you can help. Here is what I know.

Theophilus Rossell/Rosell
b. 9-27-1822 NJ
d. 12-14-1907 OH

Elmira (Sadie?) REED
b. 1-9-1835 NJ
d. 5-27-1913 OH

Married Theophilus Rossell/Rosell 1851 New Jersey (date and place not confirmed)

Children (based on census information):
George b. 1853 Ohio
John Henry b. 1855 Illinois
Mary b. 1859 Illinois
Joseph Lincoln b 1861 Ohio
Ellis B. b.1862 Ohio
Aaron S. b. 1865
Sarah Alma b.1867
Charles A. b. 1868
William Conover b. 1870
Catherine Isabelle b. 1874
Unknown infant b. unknown

Theophilus Rosell and his wife Elmira (Reed?) and family are listed on the 1860 Census (Miami County, OH). Also a Mary Reed age 40 b. New Jersey(I do not know if this is Elmira's mother or not).

1870 Census family in Montgomery County, OH.
1880 Census family in Shelby county, OH.
1900 census has Theophilus and Elmira, living alone, in Montgomery County, OH again.

Record of an 1851 marriage, Trenton, NJ, was not found by NJ vital statistics. This date was given to me by another "cousin".

If nothing else could you help me with a church affiliation. Maybe the information I need is contained in church records.
