Ellen Wiltse, Burr Oak, Iowa d. 25 Dec, 1871

Ellen WILTSE was my 3great grandmother. She was born 15 Dec 1828 in Ontario, Canada, and died 25 Dec 1871 in Burr Oak, Winneshiek County, Iowa. She married my 3great grandfather, Halstead J. HARDEN, in 1848, Canada. Together they had 5 children, they are Edgar J. HARDEN, b. 1849 New York, Myron Willsie HARDEN, b. 6 May 1851, New York, Lois A. HARDEN, b. 1853 New York, Henry Ward Beecher HARDEN (my 2great grandfather), b. 1854 New York, and Chloe I. HARDEN, b. 1861 Iowa. After Ellen died, Halstead remarried, a woman named "Elvira". No other info on her. Ellen, Halstead, and Elvira are all buried in Burr Oak Community Cemetery, Burr Oak, Winneshiek County, Iowa.Halstead d. 1896, Elvira died 1897. Believe Elvira may have been a Willsie, as on the 1860 census for Burr Oak there is a "domestic" by the name of Elvira Willsie living with the family. Perhaps just concidence, pure speculation there at this point. Can anybody out there help me???? Anything at all would be so much appreciated. I can be contacted at
