I'm not related but have been discussing this couple lately. Do you have a record of the 1864 marriage between Joseph Nelson Fadden & Elizabeth Sawyer. If so, would you please share what this register says.

Also, do you have Elizabeth's birth register or her baptismal record?

Note towards the end of this message you will see that Nelson remarried in 1887 in Iowa; then the next record is their daughter's marriage which showed that she was born in Nebraska abt 1892, although she married in Iowa in 1911. I'm not sure if this is new information or not.
