I am looking for some information of the families of Mahala Owens and Nathaniel Key.
Mahala was born in Kentucky then moved with her family to Indiana.
Nathaniel was born in Virginia.

The two married in Putnam County, Indiana around 1843. I believe that their families must have lived in the area around 1840.

I also believe that a Bolin Key, who lived in the area at that time, may be an older brother of Nathaniel's, but I have had no luck tracking down the parents of either Mahala or Nathaniel.

By 1850 the couple had moved to Iowa and started a family there. Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.
