I am tracing my family and have come to a standstill on MARTHA JANE SPURGEON--b.7-14-1828 m. James R. Carson 4-6-1851 and died 7-12-1855 or 1859. They had three daughters Mellissa,Viola,and Emily Virginia Carson. I believe James and Martha were married in Butler Co.,Ohio and moved to Livingston Co. Ill. If anyone has any info on Martha Jane's parents and place of birth, I would be happy to share any other info I have!!!
