I've been searching for the parents of Nancy Jane Rudicel b. 5 Nov 1856 in Wabash County and d. 25 March 1901 in Wabash County. She was married to James C. Poe in 1877.
I ordered her death certificate from Wabash County, received it today, and it lists her parents as John Rudicel, born in Indiana and Lydia Cameron, born in Pennsylvania.
I found John and Lydia in the 1860 census in Liberty Twp., Wabash, Indiana but their children do not include Nancy. There's Jefferson, Martha, John and Samuel.
In 1870 I found John married to a Martha (if I'm correct), with the same children, plus a couple more.
By 1880 the younger Martha is gone from the household.
How do I connect my Nancy to this family? Can I assume that the death certificate has the correct parents? If it does, could my Nancy be Martha?
I'm relatively new to genealogy research and I don't want to make a wrong assumption, and I would really appreciate any help.
Thanks so much.
