My gggrandfather was William Otho Louderback b. 1833 in Ohio. I believe him to be the son of Ruben Louderback. William Otho also went by the name Jackson. He married a Louisa MNU some time around 1858 and had a one year old son (Jackson) by the 1860 census. The next time he is found is in the 1880 census in Sagamon Co. IL. It appears he is married to someone else at this time. In this hh there is a Rana, Dock, Nettie and Dallas. Nettie is my direct line and I have no way of knowing who her mother was. I am looking for anyone who may be connected to this family and possibly has some answers that could lead me to a solution to this problem. It appears Otho may have been married as many as three times before he died. He married a Parsis Jane after 1880 and probably had 9 or 10 children between the three.
Otho was living in Tx and died some time after 1900. That issue is also in question. We have no exact date. Out of all these children, surely someone else is researching this family. I believe that Otho's children with Parsis Jane were adopted by a Stevens or Stevenson after his death. I would appreciate any input and/or suggestions.
