Henry Alderman (1800-aft1880), Rush County, Indiana

Working on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Henry Alderman (b. June 5, 1800), was the son of James Alderman and Catherine Warner.  His marriage to Mary Clark on September 22, 1823 in Rush County, Indiana was found in the database. Prior to this find, I didn't have the exact location on their marriage.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 13 Jul 2013), Henry Alderman and Mary Clark, 1823.
Henry was my maternal 4th-great granduncle.  His father, James, was my 5th-great grandfather.  Henry ended up in Bond County, Illinois and Cherokee County, Kansas, where the last record I have of him was the 1880 census.  He also served with the abolitionist John Brown in the fall of 1855 in the 5th Regiment, 1st Brigade of Kansas Volunteers in the Wakarusa War.
