Query: 8th Street Christian Church, Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana


Is it possible to find out what happened to a church in Muncie, Indiana?  It was the 8th Street Christian Church. It was there in 1899 but not now. Maybe it was renamed and moved somewhere? I have tried the Delaware Historical Society but have not received an answer. 
Thank you

Query: Nathan and Mary Wyatt, Jackson Township, DeKalb County


I am still fairly new to genealogical research . . starting a little over a year ago and I am looking for any IGS members that may have researched Nathan & Mary Wyatt.  I have done a surname search on the IGS website and Wyatt did not show up. The Wyatt's were early settlers of Jackson Township, DeKalb County.  Also, looking for researchers of James Pratt & Ann Wyatt Plummer.  (James was the first school teacher in Jackson Township and is the brother of Luther Thomas Martin Plummer, whose wife and child were kidnapped by Comanche at Fort Parker, Texas - the movie “The Searchers” starring John Wayne is based on this incident).
My connection: Nathan and Mary Wyatt are my 4x great grandparents and James P and Ann are my 3x great grandparents.  I would like to learn more about these individuals. I have traveled to DeKalb County, and found James P Plummer’s grave. Up until then, it wasn’t listed on Findagrave nor on Ancestry – it is now. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you for your time.

Query: Birth Record Information, Marion County, Indiana


Looking for information where I can get a Marion County birth record/certificate for 1893.  I see where the WPA indexed in certain counties, but not Marion County.

Can someone guide me to the correct place or website?

Thank you,

QUERY: Howard Andrew Pinson Smith, Vigo/Vermillion County, Indiana


My father, Howard Andrew Pinson Smith was born May 11, 1906 to Roy Harrington SMITH and Ethel Mae (or Mae Ethel) Pinson. I have been trying to find a record of his birth. Many years ago he told me he was born in Libertyville (Vigo Co) but others in the family thought that he and all of his siblings were born in Clinton (Vermillion Co). He was the first child born to this couple and when they married she had been living in Clinton and he in Libertyville. It occurred to me that perhaps his mother went "home" to her parents who may have been living in Edgar Co Illinois at the time of his birth. Several years ago, I called both Vigo County and Vermillion County offices and both told me there was no record of his birth. Would it serve any purpose to visit the county clerk’s offices in those locations? I would appreciate any help that can be provided.
