Caroline HALEY
Birth:  1826/7, OH
Death:  1872, Fayette Co., IL
Occupation:  carpenter

Martin is not with his wife, Caroline, in the 1870 Census.  Did he die earlier?  Is 1872 a typo?  Should it be 1862?  Or did he just leave her?  They had only the one child, in 1858/9, which suggests he dropped out of the picture not long after.

Marriage-1:  23 Oct 1852, Marion Co., OH
Wife-1:  Mary Ann CRAWFORD
Birth:  30 Sep 1825, Richland Twp., Marion Co., OH
Death:  1 May 1856, Fayette Co., IL
Disposition:  buried in Pilcher Cemetery, Fayette Co., IL
Father:  Paul CRAWFORD
Mother:  Susanna STRAUB
Marriage-2:  7 Oct 1857, Fayette Co., IL
Wife-2:  Caroline HALEY
Birth:  1827/8, IL
Death:  1922
Other Spouse:  m1. 1845, Fayette Co., IL, James SMITH
Children with Mary Ann CRAWFORD:
1.  David SCHRODT, b. 28 Sep 1853
2.  Talitha Ann SCHRODT, b. 13 or 17 Oct 1855; d. 3 May 1881; m. Robert Hamilton McMILLAN (1854-1962)

"Talitha" is a scriptural word turned into a name, from the phrase, "Talitha cumi," meaning "damsel arise" (Mark 5:41); it is not a nickname for "Tabitha," which is Aramaic/Hebrew for "gazelle."

Children with Caroline HALEY:
3.  Mary D. "Cassie" SCHRODT, b. 1858/9, Vandalia Twp., Fayette Co., IL
4.  (infant) SCHRODT, died young

"Melinda SCROTE" is Melinda Adaline SMITH, Caroline's daughter by her first marriage.  Mary D. SCROTE would appear to be Martin and Caroline's only child together.  David and Tabitha SCHRODT, Martin's children by his first wife, are living with their maternal grandmother (see next source).  I don't know how Elizabeth BLY fits in.

Susanna (STRAUB) CRAWFORD is the mother of our subject's first wife, who appears to have taken in her grandchildren after the death of her daughter, Mary Ann (CRAWFORD) SCHRODT.

_____ James 18 M W       Illinois
Where is Martin?  Is the 1872 death date wrong?  A death in 1862 would make more sense.  Mary is Caroline's child with Martin SCHRODT, the other three are children from her first marriage, to James SMITH.

"Serate" would be an easy misreading of Scrote.  "Cassie" has to be Mary D.; I guess it's a nickname.

Fayette Facts (Fayette County Genealogical & Historical Society, Vandalia, IL), v. 8, n. 2, pp. 56-57.  Says there is a sketch of the McMILLAN family in v. 8, n. 2.   Also says Andrew CRAWFORD became legal guardian of David SCHRODT (his nephew) in 1872.  Has Adeline as a daughter of Milton's first wife, Mary Ann (CRAWFORD, but Adaline was born two years before Milton and Mary Ann were married.  Adeline is the daughter of Caroline and her first husband, James SMITH.  Be aware that the ancestry of Susanna STRAUB as given in the article is incorrect:  she was not descended from Andrew & Mary (WALTER) STRAUB of Milton, PA.  The article contains other errors, so confirm, confirm, confirm!
