RE: Mary Knickerbocker b 1839 OH (d/o David & Hannah Knickerbocker). Does anyone know when and where she died? I have odds and ends notes on her family as follows:

Mary Knickerbocker b 1839 OH md on 28 Sept 1861 Howard Co IN to Tobias L Varnes (b 1831-1832 PA). Tobias may have had a previous marriage, as 1870 census shows a son Edwin Varnes b 1857-1858 OH.
