      The following information was sent to us from Dan Bernethy from his personal research. Many thanks!

      Phoebe moved to Indiana when she was 17 years old.

      "State of Indiana )
      County of Pulaski )

      On this 9th day of February, A.D. 1867, before me, a Notary Justice of the Peace, in and for said county and state personally came Israel B Washburn whom I certify to be respectable and entitled to credit, who being duly sworn according to law declares and says that he was personally well acquainted with Robert Bernethe and his wife, Phoebe Bernethe, whose maiden name was Phoebe Washburn, and I know from having been personally present at the death that the aid Phoebe Bernethe died at the hose of Moses G. washburn on or about the 7th day of October, A.D. 1858 , of lung fever. He further declares and says that the said Robert Bernethe did not again marry after the death of his said wife and that at his death he left surviving him no wife.

      Further, that he has no interest in the claim of the minor children of the said Robert Bernethe for pension.

      Grace B Washburn

      Subscribed and sworn before me and I certify that I have no interest in the prosecution of said claim for pension."

      Her date of death, in yet another paper declaring request for Army Pension for the four minor children, is listed as 08 Oct 1857.

She was born April 16, 1813 and was 17 years of age when the family came to Indiana. She was married to Robert Bernethy and there home was on a farm 31/2 miles north west of Royal Center, Indiana.
