Sophia Markey

Sophia MARKEY lived down the street from George WINE and Isabella MYERS in Pierceton. Her parents were Henry George MARKEY and Elizabeth SHAFER. Apparently Sophia and George WINE had a child together, in 1860, when George was 18 and Sophia was 15. This child was the 2great grandmother of the submitter, Frances Ellen MARKEY/WINE. Sophia evidently kept Frances and raised her until George got home from the Civil War and married Isabella. Then Sophia brought Frances to George and Isabella, dropped her off, and moved to Nebraska alone. Evidently Frances lived with George and Isabella until her marriage to John Robert WALKER.
