Burdick - disputed Law-suit -
Mary and Martha (Marsha) are on the Hudson list, but Frances is not.

I wrote down the name "Martha", but the photo of the stone shows Marsha so I'll have to re-check the court records next time we're at the courthouse.
The 1870 census shows Marshall, age 6/12, male. That puts Marshall born Nov or Dec 1869. If we use the birth date calculator with the age and dod for
Martha/Marsha, the birth date is Nov 22, 1869. I'd like to think Marsha and Marshall could be twins, but if that's the
case both should have shown on the 1870 census.
   
  Sure a lot of name and gender mix ups for one tiny little child!! Next issue: The 1870 census shows a dau. Margrett, age 3
She's the only child listed who matches the dates for Frances. Maybe Frances M. is Frances Margrett? (FYI: census spells last name Burdock)
Willard Ball sued John A. Burdick for an unpaid account for a burial case for Mrs. Burdick.
It was ordered Sep 28 1874. George C. Ross sued John A. Burdick for gravestones ordered from La Porte Marble Works.
1) Set of gravestones, 2 ft. high with proportional width, marble with base and inscribed: Frances M., dau of J.A. & M.E. Burdick,
died June 13, 1872 aged 4 yrs, 9 mo, & 9 days To be delivered at the Hudson yard.
2) Design: oval top. From La Porte Marble Works, ordered Oct 1, 1874. Set of gravestones 3 1/2 ft. high w/proportional width. Marble with base,
inscribed as follows: Mary E., wife of J.A. Burdick, died Sep 28, 1874 aged ------- (not filled in). To be delivered at the Hudson yard.
3) Set of gravestones, 2 ft. high with proportional width, marble with base and inscribed: Martha A., dau. of J.A. & M.E. Burdick,
died May 4, 1872, aged 2 yrs. 5 mo, & 12 days.
Finalization of the cases were recorded April 17, 1880. - contributed By: Donna Nelson

Eleazer SPRAGUE b. 10/5/1799 PA d. 8/15/1865 presumably in LaPorte Co., IN. The courthouse and the library have been unable to find death records,
will and probate records, nor an obituary for him. He is listed in the 1830 Census in Scipio, Seneca Co., OH, and in the 1840, 1850, and 1860
Censuses at Hudson, LaPorte Co., IN. His wife, Mary b. 1796 VT d. aft. 6/20/1859 appears in the 1850 Census, but not in 1860.

Their children are listed below.

Electa SPRAGUE b. 1820 is a daughter of Eleazer b. 1798 PA and Mary SPRAGUE b. 1796 VT d. bet 1850-1860 La Porte Co., IN.
Some other children are Esther SPRAGUE m. Alonzo MORSE 1/291844 La Porte Co., IN,
Sarah H. SPRAGUE b. 9/28/1819 OH d. 8/9/1890 Charleston, SC
m. 12/31/1838 La Porte Co., IN to Caleb Nichols AVERILL b. 10/16/1815 NY d. Summerville, SC children: John Henry b. 10/25/1843 and
Louisa W. b. 1844, Lucy SPRAGUE b. 1821 OH d. aft 1860 m. 1) 12/10/1840 La Porte Co., IN to John HOOTEN or HOOTOON b. ? d. bef 1850
children: Esther M. HOOTEN b. 1842, Nancy Ann HOOTEN b. 1845. Lucy m. 2nd ? ENSIGN and Josephine N. SPRAGUE b. 1829 OH.
Eleazer and his family are at Hudson Twp., La Porte Co., IN in the 1840, 1850 and 1860 Census.

Aassumption is that John SPRAGUE b. 8/15/1777 VT d. 6/15/1852 LaPorte Co., IN is most likely the father of Eleazer.
Death, will, probate and obituary records for him could not be found in LaPorte either. His wife Phebe, must have died prior to 1850
since she does not appear in the 1850 Census. I do not know where John was prior to 1850.
Phebe (Sprague) ADAMS (daughter of John and Phebe) b. 8/4/1802 NY d. 2/19/1873 LaPorte Co., IN m. abt 1833
(1) John C. HALE b. 4/30/1800 NY d. 4/10/1865 LaPorte Co., IN.
They are listed in the 1850 Census at Hudson, LaPorte Co., IN, living with them are son, Emerson (presumably adopted son,
Jesse Emerson) b. 5/1/1836 NH d. 4/15/1852 LaPorte Co., IN, daughter Mary,
(presumably adopted daughter Mary C.) b. 12/10/1842 IN d. 4/10/1853 LaPorte Co., IN, and Phebe's father John, discussed above.
Phebe SPRAGUE HALE then married Lemuel M. ADAMS who died sometime after 4/1871.
They had no heirs. Phebe had a will where she left everything to her friends.

Other ancestors in this group, but not necessarily buried at Hudson Lake are:
John Perry FEAR b. 2/20/1815 PA d. 8/5/1866 Delaware Co., IA m. 2/3/1839 La Porte Co., IN to

Marsh, Lemuel - Marsh, Joseph, Obituary of Lemuel Marsh, Advent Harbinger and Bible Advocate Vol. 2:341 July 6, 1850.
Used with permission of Atlanta Bible College Archives. Information furnished by Jan Stilson, Church of God Historian.
    Lemuel Marsh Father of the editor, died at Hudson, LaPorte Co., Indiana 3 June 1850, in the 80th year of his age.
He spent the early part of his active life in St. Albans, Franklin Co., Vermont, his native State, where he professed faith in Christ, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church.
   In A.D. 1817 he moved to LeRoy, Genesee, New York, where, on account of denying the trinity and believing in the Unity of God,
and that Christ is the Son of God, he was turned out of the M.E. Church. My mother, and one or two brothers were turned out of the same church
about that time, for the same cause. In LeRoy he buried his first wife, my pious mother, and soon after marrying his second wife, moved to Randolph, Cattaraugus Co., N.Y.
where he buried three sons, my dear brothers, who died happily in the Lord.
    After spending several years of deprivation and incessant toil in the wilds(?) of Randolph, he moved to Hudson, Indiana,
to fill up the measure of his days in that new and fertile country. There he paid the debt of nature; there he now (?), sleeps in death
(?) we trust, to awake to (?), and have a glorious part in the first resurrection. Blessed be the Lord! (Last line illegible.)
   Note: The Church of God Historian, Jan Stilson, also furnished the information that Joseph said his step-mother was also buried in Hudson,
and Joseph visited the graves in 1851, according to a record of Josephs travels printed in the same paper.
Joseph also said that he visited his brother, William, in Hudson, and his sister, Mrs. F.G. White, in the same area.
It is likely that Williams first wife, Roxanna Barmore, is buried in the same cemetery in Hudson, as well as some of Williams children. -
