I am trying to fine information on my Great Grandparents on my fathers maternal side. Names: Joseph Albert Brown m. Angeline Smith
I found them with all but one child in the 1880 Indiana Census.
As we all know there is a 20 year gap in the census records at this point.
In 1883-84 Angeline took a gun to Joseph. He was only wounded but she was sent to an Indiana (we think) prison. The problem is which prison, for how long, did she die in prison, or did she get out and then where did she go from there. And after July 1883 where did Joseph go. Neither of them are in the 1900 Indiana census.
The above event occured in Muncie, Delaware Co., Indiana
Other names I am researching are Piper, Hicklin, Walker, Ellis, Laws, Crouch, McKenney, from all accross the couhntry, for the moment anyway.
I would like to hear from anyone on this and will exchange what I have. Thanks, Alice
