My 2GGmother was Ida Bartley (Barkley) who (according to her death cert.) was born 3 Oct 1855 in Tecumseh, Lewee, Michigan. I have not been able to find her in the 1860 census, but in the 1870 census she is listed with the Benj. Mabee family in Springfield, Richland County, Ohio, where she is listed as Ida Mabee (age 14). In 1876 she married Robert C. Jahne in Mansfield, Richland County, Ohio., and she lists her name on the marriage certificate as Ida Bartley.
The things that tie Ida and the Mabee family together are these.
1) We have a small New Testiment that has this inscription: To Ida from Grandma Mabee.
2) The Benjamin Mabee family is located in Fairfield, Lenawee County, Michigan (where Ida was born) in the 1860 census. (I can provide the full census transcripts). And they are together in the 1870 Richland County Census)
Can anyone provide more information about the connection of Ida Bartley and the Benjamin Mabee family?
