In Reply to: Dora Wagonseller by Carrie Baize of 23

Pat Mount,
http://home.att.net/~mount.p/wortman.html
has Dora. All Pat has is Dora'a name, however, and lots of WORTMAN data.

The IGI
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp
has her name as
ZELPHIA DORA WAGONSELLER
and their marriage 29 JAN 1872 , Sullivan, Indiana

In the 1870 census for Haddon, Sullivan, Indiana, is this odd household:

Vance, James, 44, farmer, N. Carolina
----, Emeline, 47, keeping home, Ohio
----, Sarah, 1, ----, Indiana
Wagonseller, Dora, 21, at home, Illinois

"Odd" because 46 is awfully old to be having children, so little Sarah might be a niece, grand-daughter, or Dora's natural child.

If Dora was a servant, it would say so. She may be a niece or a James' step-daughter.

Dora is still in Haddon in 1880. She says her mother was born in Illinois, so either she was wrong or Emeline there is not her mother.
