Abraham Daily and Elizabeth Jane Sawyer Daily OH/IN/MO/NC/KY, 1815-1910
Posted by: Pam Koppe (ID *****0804) Date: June 12, 2009 at 18:13:53

I am looking for information on Abraham and Elizabeth Daily

Abraham was born in 1815 in NC, probably to Madison L (1800-1873) and Margaret (1800-1873)

Elizabeth was born in 1814 probably in Kentucky. She died in Feb 1893 in Logansport, IN.

They lived in Dacatur, IN, in 1850 where according to the census they had children: Melvina J, Mary P, Joseph S, and Martha L, all born in Ohio.

According to the 1860 census, they were then located in Division 35, Jackson, Missouri with the following children:
John P (born in 1853 in IN)
Hiram T (born in Mo in 1856)
(I am assuming Mary died, but she may have married)

According to the 1870 census, in 1870 Elizabeth, Melvinia, Joseph, John and Hiram were back in Preble County OH.

This fits the family "lore" that Abraham and several children died and were buried near the Mississippi river valley.

John P is my ggrandfather. We believe Hiram eventually moved to Iowa. It appears Elizabeth lived in or near New Hope, Oh, and Logansport, IN, for the rest of her life. I have no idea what happened to Joseph.

Any information on any of these Daily's would be greatly appreciated. I am particularly interested in when and exactly where Abraham died and may be buried. Parents of Abraham and Elizabeth. And, of course, anything related to Hiram and Joseph (I believe Melvinia never married, but if someone knows differently, I'd be interested in her life and family as well.)
