You now have some information to use in searching. Worn out for now. Still only show her birth as PA.

Husband always listed his birth as PA, then at age 76 in household with daughter says NJ, parents NJ. Would tend to believe PA.

Listed possible other children. Perhaps not. Was trying to locate parents in additional census records. Possible/probable other Case families in the area.

More info can probably be gleaned from these records. Timeline/Events could be finished. There are links to documents available, you may wish to download and post on Wikitree. Was not on trusted list to do it myself.

Good luck for now, may take a break and look at it anew. Mike

Thank you, Mike. You are really good...covered all the Case persons and know about the Census reports he was born in NJ moved as an infant to PA - think our Mariah Cox parents may have been George Cox (NY) and Rosanna Smith - can't verify but hope so, as this would solve lots of questions for us. I really appreciate your help I have only been going at this for two years but did find my maternal grandmother buried in an unmarked grave for 80 years and we ten living cousins placed a stone on her grave, then our search began for her maternal family.  Thank you again for your help. Katie
