My Grandfather now deceased knewsome of the family history and told my mother that he was told that ElizaToland’s fathers name was Isaac Toland and that she had a brother namedWill. I looked in Schuyler County 1860 census and found an Isaac Tolandwho had a daughter named Eliza and a son named William the only thing thatdoesn’t fit is Eliza Toland’s age.
