Wow! Its nice to find someone else searching in the same area much less the same family!
I was just reviewing my post to see which of the women could have been the mother to my 3rd gr grandmother, Moriah (age 8 in the inventory). Moriah is said to have been of Indian descent (probably half) through her mother's side. I know that Moriah was supposed to have had two daughters, whose Identities are unknown as they were not in the household in 1870 as far as I can tell. I'm not sure if she had any siblings.
I'll keep an eye out for more info. Have you done or thought about doing dna testing? I have my mother's side tested, including 2 siblings of my maternal grandmother. I wonder if we might share common ancestry.
