The following are three additional tidbits of information I have found in the last several weeks.
- According to the 1860 census Abner Fish (gggg-grandfather) had 160 acres of improved land and 400 acres of unimproved land
- Fredrick Ellingson (gg-grandfather) moved to Cavalier County, North Dakota with two of his daughters and their families in 1882.
- In 1839 Phineas Young (gggg-grandfather) bought a lot in Dublin, Wayne County, Indiana that was approximately 22 yards by 71 yards. This is about the size of one/third of an acre. He bought it for forty dollars. It was measured in rods (a rod is about 5.5 yards). Part of the deed for this is shown in the picture. I am assuming the Bells and Albrights owned the lots on either side of his lot.
