Marriage Certificate (original document)dated June 14, 1856 Henry M.
Rouse (sic) to Martha E. FOuts, Vermillion Co, Indiana. Conflict in birthplaces for first two children - family records say they were born in Vermillion co, IN, however, all census data indicate birthplace as Illinois. Carrie Roush Powell listed Iroquois County, Illinois as her birthplace on the birth certificates of her own children. Family story: Henry M. Roush was drafted to serve in the Civil War in 1862 (Dana, Indiana), however, MArtha was close to delivering her 3rd child. Martha had a history of difficult pregnancies and deliveries. Henry paid another man, Charles Wilkes, to take his place in the War. Mr Wilkes was killed. When the child was born, he was named for the slain soldier. In 1864 Henry Martin Roush was drafted again and was in uniform
when the war ended. Henry and Martha ROush also raised
a foster daughter, Lillie Myrtle Robbins. SHe is listed in the 1880 Census with them as Tillie M Robinson. Lillie had been left behind at an old house when her parents moved, and they never returned for her. Lillie
eventually married William Blevans. Martha Fouts Roush
also appears in the 1910 Census, Cass Co, Polk Twp, MO as head of her own household; in the 1920 Census for Cass Co, Polk Twp, MO, she is living with her daughter Carrie in the household of Powell, George M. .
