I need to find the parents and siblings of Noah Bolander-Bolinger:

Noah BOLANDER was born December 11, 1825 in OH, according  to the family bible of his 2nd wife, Tillitha MARTIN, and 1850-60-70-80 federal censuses.  Sometime after 1855, he changed his name to BOLINGER.

Noah is found on the 1850 Licking Co., OH census with wife, Sarah, and a baby daughter born March 1850.  Their daughter, Rhoda, died that same year, according to the 1850 OH Mortality Census.

In 1855, he married Tillitha C. MARTIN SURBER in Vigo Co., IN, where they are found in the 1860 census.  In 1870 they are living in Pettis Co., MO, next to John BOLINGER, age 33 from OH, his wife Ann and daughters Ella and Mollie.

In 1880, Noah and family are in Vernon Co., MO, where, according to Tillitha's family bible, he died December 25, 1886.   I have not found a cemetery record for him.

Noah and Tillitha had three sons and three daughters:  John H., William Francis, Sarah A., Mary E., Emma Isetta, and Louis Merritt.  Sometime between 1890-93, William Francis, Emma Isetta, Louis Merritt, and their mother moved to Dallas, Dallas Co., TX.

Byron Francis BREEDING, was born 1836 Rhea Co., TN.  His parents were Baty BREEDING and Lucinda THOMPSON. In about 1855 the family moved to Saline Co., IL. Baty died there in 1959. I could not find Byron listed in the1860 Saline Co. census. I did find a Byron BRAYTON, age 21, born in Tennessee living in Nashville, Washington Co., IL near the Larken STRICKLIN family, who may have been related to the wife of his brother James.

Byron married Mary Jane BOYLES, widow of Thomas H. POWERS, about 1865 in either Illinois or Missouri. He died about 1876 in MO. Mary Jane then married Dewit Clinton EDMONDS May 27, 1877 in Henry Co., MO.

The children of Byron and Mary were: Lucinda Jane (who married George Franklin GRANGER), Louisa, Mary Adeline, and Samuel. All were born in MO except Lucinda who was born in IL (src 1880 MO census). She always said she was born in Clinton, IL.
