William and Sarah (Castator) Baker are listed on the 1850 census of Shelby County, Indiana with daughters, Mary, Nancy, Prudence, and Elmira. Their married children lived nearby.
Part of the family went to Page county, Iowa in the fall of 1850, the others followed a few years later.
William died Sept. 1, 1850 (where?).
Mary married in Johnson County, Indiana in 1851.
Prudence married in Page County, Iowa in 1853.
The mother, Sarah, remarried in Page County, Iowa in 1856.
Elmira married in Nodaway County, Missouri in 1858.
Nancy disappeared. She was born January 19, 1832 in Indiana.
Need a marriage or cemetery record for her.
One major problem in researching is that she may not be listed as Nancy. Members of this family often changed their names around.
Mary became Frances M., Prudence became Ann P., David P. became Peter D., Elmira was sometimes listed as Myra, etc.
I've exhausted most of the major resources, including Ancestry.com.

Good Morning, Iowa genealogists!
A "House Warming" is being held here at IAGenWeb to show case our three
outstanding orphaned counties! They are Cerro Gordo, Montgomery and Osceola
These counties come in two different sizes, locations and colors. Wont you
take a few minutes to "tour" our orphan counties, and then send me a request for
an application either Cerro Gordo, Montgomery or Osceola county?! All of our
counties are in need of a bit of TLC. Someone who loves genealogy, enjoys
giving and likes sharing with others. If you adopt a county, you will
benefit other researchers, join a great team of volunteers, as well as have
an experience that's both fun and creative.
Would you like to know what the requirements are? Or would you like an
application for one of our terrific orphan counties? Then email the Welcome
Hostess for IAGenWeb at welcome_to_iagenweb(a)iagenweb.org and one of us will
be happy to answer your questions.
This invitation is open also to any current county coordinators who would
like to adopt another county. Just email us and we will get an application
to you! And if you are interested in adopting a county that already has a
CC, we'll be happy to put you on the waiting list. If your county of
interest comes open you'll be notified with the right to apply first or
