Query: Richard George Paris, Indiana


Query: Thomas Johnson, Morgan County


            I am trying to trace the parents of my GGGrandfather Thomas Johnson b8 May 1849 in Morgan County Indiana (according to his death certificate.)  His parents are listed as George E Johnson (listed on various census as being born in Indiana, Virginia and Kentucky) and his mother is listed as Amanda, born in Indiana.  He possibly had a brother Charles (I have a picture of the two of them.)

            I can't find them on census, marriage licenses, and just don't know where else to look.  Amanda supposedly lived 102 years, so I even tried to guestimate dates and look for graves.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Query: Pamela Jean Jones, Elkhart County


            Looking for Pamela Jean Jones, born February 7, 1950.  She was adopted in the 1950s-early 60’s Her father's name was Preston Jones.  I'm not sure, but Elkhart maybe for the county/city.

All I know is she also had a brother Preston and a sister Patricia, who were adopted by a different family. Pamela might have had a disability with her legs.     Thanks.
