    Have you checked the 1880 and 1900 census records?  Most of the 1890 census was lost in a fire.  I have an Ancestry.com subscription and would be happy to do some research if you wish.

      but would love to pick your brain.  I'll send kosmail.

      I have Jane in the 1900 Census, I believe.  After that census, that line just drops from the census with the exception of my great-grandfather.  I have a hard time remember which census, I've found this person...

      I'm pretty sure, at least on of my great-grandfather's sisters and his mom, Caroline should be in the 1930 census, and therefore 1910 and 1920.  I think it is going to require that I pick a few areas where I've heard they have lived and go through it line by line.  

      I'll send kosmail in a bit.  Thank you for the offer.  I've been doing this for three weeks tomorrow, so I'm such a novice.

      I for one am tired of pandering to perpetrators --- many of whom are opposed to any discussion however it comes. -- soothsayer99 DPK Caucus
