Jacob Eiler (1829-1903), Henry 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.

Jacob Eiler (1829-1903) was the son of Samuel Eiler and Susannah Snider.  His marriage to Phebe Crull occurred April 5, 1850 in Henry County, Indiana. Prior to searching this database, I didn't have the maiden name of his wife, nor the exact date of their marriage.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 25 Jun 2013), Jacob Eiler and Phebe Crull, 1850.

Jacob was Eileen's maternal first cousin five times removed.  The common ancestor is through John Snider and Elizabeth ________.  The couple was living in 1850 census in Jeffferson Township, Wayne County, Indiana.  Haven't yet done any further research on this couple, but believe they ended up in Arcadia, Hamilton County, Indiana.
