Cornelius King Family - Marion Co., IN

Today I finished sourcing the data for the Cornelius King family in the 1860 & 1870 census of Marion Co., IN. Cornelius was my maternal 3rd-great granduncle, the son of William and Sarah (Sullivan) King.

Cornelius was a lumber dealer, whose real estate value was $65,000 by 1870 and his personal estate was listed at $10,000. Between the 1860 census and approx. 1865, Cornelius' first wife Mary Ann died, and he remarried to Indiana.

An interesting note is that Cornelius & family are listed twice in the 1870 census of Marion Co., IN, both times in the 2nd ward of Indianapolis. One listing includes his domestic servant, Rachel Dean, aged 25, born in Indiana.
