I am looking for information on my gggrandfather/mother. Just this summer I found out their names, and only recently, that they were married in Rush County. I have found that my gggrandmother is thought to have been buried in Wabash, don't know if that is County or town. Hiram KIGER married Amelia LEWIS on 26 May 1850, they had two children to my knowledge, Leonidas and Savanah Caroline. They did not show up in the 1860 census, so I don't know if they died or moved away from Rush County. With the information that she died or at least was buried in Wabash, I would assume they moved away. I'm assuming that if they died, it would be after 1855, would anyone have access to that information?
