Adelia Chaffee is listed on page 643 of the 1850 census of Wyandot Co,
in Upper Sandusky. All I have is the index, but by displaying all the entries
for pages 642-4, I sometimes find possible connecting names. There were
no Chaffee's listed, or Tryons, which would be her maiden name if she is
my gr gr grandmother. However, I did find 2 familiar names - E.B. Morrison
on page 643 and Elias Osborn on 642. These names are connected to the Tryon
family in MI, where my gr gr grandparents were married. What she would
be doing by herself in OH is beyond me, and might explain why I can't connect
her any farther back.
