I am looking for my great grandfather Elisha Hurlburt.  Family history book says he was born in New York state in 1831.  He later moved to Brodhead, Wisconsin and married Eunice Harroun.  He died in 1878 in Broadhead, Wisconsin.  I have no records of his death either.

Once you create profiles and add sources for your parents and grandparents you might get some more clues. Try the research menu from the profile 

This looks like the marriage Wisconsin, County Marriages, 1836-1911," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XRLY-4TG : 16 March 2018), Elisha Hurlbut and E. E. Harroon, 28 Jan 1852; citing , Green, Wisconsin, United States, Wisconsin Historical Society, Madison; FHL microfilm 1,266,665.

And the 1860 census has lots of clues for family members to research 

Possibly even elisha’s Grandfather 

United States Census, 1860", database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MW99-1SK : 12 December 2017), Elisha Hurlbut, 1860.

Thank you for the information.  I definitely know the Wisconsin Marriages was a direct match to my grandmother who I have lots of information on.  After looking at the United States census for 1860, I believe that their spelling was incorrect and perhaps this is a hit for my great great grandfather.
