Thank you for all this information, but part of it is confusing --

Did Matilda (stone) Casey, John Sr's widow, marry Henry Lamb in 1863, or
did Matilda and John Sr's eldest daughter Mary Anna Casey (b1845) marry
Henry Lamb in 1863?
The 1870 census only proves that there was a Matilda Lamb and a Mary in
'henry Lamb's Household, not that Henry & Matilda married. (Was it MARY
As for the children, Noah/Noe *could* be Mary's child (18 @ his birth,)
though 11 at Francis M's birth would have been a bit young.
The 1880 Kansas census, then, lists MARY as Henry's wife. Noah, 15, Cora,
6, and Elsie, 5, look to be their children.
All that aside, I have Mary Anna marrying a Henry Hanover, and living most
of her life in Shellsburg, Benton, Iowa.

I have removed lots and lots and lots of coding errors from the
<http://iowajones.org/census/census.htm>1870 Census and added
drawings from the 1867 Plat Map to the pages. This is a good time to
take a look for your ancestors and submit your own corrections and additions.
