Mary and Archibald do not show up on census after 1860 so maye they died or went to live with relatives in another county or state.

I am researching my husband's great-great-grandmother, Emma Bickel. I know she was born October 8, 1873 and died June,
1976 in Mount Carmel, Wabash County, Illinois. She lived in Patton, Illinois most of her life. She married Richard Tolleson. He died in 1949. They had at least two girls, Lenora Alice (b. December 30, 1895 in Illinois d. December 1979 bur. Mt. Carmel, Illinois m. Albert Spencer Glazier) and Ida (m. _____ Benham). What I would like to know is where was Emma born?? who were her parents?? when and where was Richard born?? who did Ida marry??
