Isabella Lewis (1850-1876), Huntington 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.

Isabella Lewis (1850-1876) was the daughter of Solomon and Margaret (Rinehart) Lewis.  Her marriage to William Arnold on December 19, 1869 in Huntington County, Indiana was found in the database.  Prior to this find, I only had a date of their marriage and not the location. I have not yet determined whether William Arnold was a brother to the Levi Arnold who married Isabella's sister, Amanda.

Isabella was Eileen's maternal 2nd-great grandaunt.  The family lived in Jefferson Township, Huntington County, Indiana in the 1870 census.  Both William and Isabella died within a month of each other in 1876 and are buried in the Purviance Cemetery in Huntington County.  I do not yet know if there were any children.
