Noah Edgington, Stark County, Ohio

This is about Mary Elizabeth Edgington, daughter of Noah Edgington and Susanna Boyle. Noah was the son of John Edgington and Nancy Bruce, and John was the son of George Edgington and Margaret Broome.
I had been told by my mother (who may have been told by her mother), that Mary Elizabeth Edgington died young, leaving her children orphaned. I since have learned that she lived to a pretty old age, that she apparently divorced after 1860, but before 1870, because the census image of her husband/ex husband, John Bliler, shows him living With my G grandmother Lillian/Lillie and her siblings, plus a woman named Mary, age 22 listed as invalid, as well as another woman listed as housekeeper. Then in the 1880 census He is shown with a Mary Jane Reed listed as wife, the same children that I knew about, plus a one year old baby named Maude, who I remember my mother mentioning. However, I don't know if mom knew that this Maude was by John Bliler's second wife. I can't find any record of a Mary E. Edgington (or Bliler) in Indiana. The only other information I have now is that she moved back to Stark County from Indiana in 1900 and then died in 1901. In the 1860 Cass County, Indiana census, John Bliler is shown with a Mary, age 21 and a one year old baby listed as Lizzie (I'm sure they meant Lillie). If she was really 21 in 1860, though, she would have been born in 1839, and if they were married in 1852, she would have been married at age 13...not unusual, but it doesn't jibe with her given birthdate of 1827 (this according to the cemetery information stating that she died in 1901 at age 74. That puts her birth date at 1827. Does anyone on the list have the children of Noah Edgington and Susanna Boyle, along with their dates of birth, or any knowledge at all about the Noah Edgington family? I am truly stuck and am now wondering if my Mary Elizabeth Ediington is really the daqughter of Noah Edgington and Susanna Boyle. I sure would appreciate any help with this. Thank you, Susan McAtee
