Rebecca Sills (1844-1922), Wabash 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.

Rebecca Sills (1844-1922) was the daughter of George Sills and Mary Grimes.  Her second marriage to Henry Bussard on October 25, 1877 in Wabash County, Indiana was located in the database. Her first husband was Isaiah Landis.  Prior to the find, I did not have any documentation for their marriage.
