    • According to The Southwick Genealogy, page 244: "He [David Southwick, Frances' father] started with his wife for Lafayette, Indiana, to visit their daughter; on reaching Waterford, Erie Co., Penn., his wife became sick and after a year's illness died there. He afterwards married at Benson, Vt., Mrs. Mary Stacey, the widow of his wife's brother, Jan. 23, 1825."

      Frances and John Eddy were in Indiana by 1818 and moved to Tippecanoe County, the county Lafayette is in, sometime after 1820. None of David Southwick's other daughters lived in Indiana, and they appeared to remain in the New York/Vermont area. One daughter, Malinda, eventually ended up in Illinois, but that move appears to have occurred long after the 1820s.
