Query:Turner/Vaughn of Johnson County

I am searching for any information about a Frank Turner. He was born in 1852 somewhere in Kentucky and died 27 April 1894. He is supposed to be buried in the Bargersville Cemetery in Johnson County, Indiana but I have not been able to confirm this. He is my great-great-grandfather. I know he was married to Rosella Vaughn and she was from a prominent Johnson County family. Does anyone have advice about how I can access local records? I want to know where Frank was buried or who his parents are.

Query: Pegg/McIntosh of Miami County

Marriage Indexing: No Marriage Date or Official's Name

We seem to be getting lots of marriage license applications now but with no marriage date and the only official's name is that of the county clerk.

DO NOT try to include a date or an official's name. Simply mark these fields as blank (CTRL+B). Doing anything else would be including some misleading or even false information in our index. Researchers will still be able to search by names of the bride and groom or even the county and find these records.

Monday, September 24, 2007

Query: Coy of Indiana

I am trying to find a place of death for a Barbara Coy who was born April 16, 1747 in Pennsylvania and died August 9, 1854 in Indiana (I do not know where). Her husband was Daniel Coy.

Mary Glider
P.O. Box 272

Query: Chamberlain of Clay County

Looking for information on James H. Chamberlain, who was in the Civil War. He was a private in Company F of the 31st Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He enlisted September 21, 1861 in Clay County, Indiana and was discharged January 28, 1863. He is buried in the Fairview Cemetery, Madrid, Iowa. I have no other information on him. Who were his parents? Did he have a wife and children?

Is he the same as James Chamberlain who was born 31 December 1794 in Kentucky and died 13 January, 1887 in Douglas Twp., Boone Co., Iowa?

Query: Gardner of Vigo County

I am looking for information on Elijah Thomas Gardner (born about 1842 in Indiana) who lived in Linton Township, Vigo County, Indiana in the 1870 census. He had a wife Elizabeth (born about 1847 in Kentucky) and children Sarah E. (born about 1865 in Indiana), Amanda J. (born about 1868 in Indiana) and Charles (born about April 1870 in Indiana). I am wondering what happened to him. I was told that all his family died close together and only young son Charles survived. Did they die from cholera?

Also, I would like to know when Elijah Thomas Gardener and Elizabeth got married. I found in a marriage index for Vigo County that a Charles Gardner (age 25) married an Ethel Burgan on July 28, 1895, and it listed his father as T. and his mother as Elizabeth Blair. This appears to correspond with a Thomas Gardner who married Elizabeth Blair on November 7, 1861 in Vigo County. Is he the same as my Elijah Thomas Gardner?

Query: Follick/Marsh of Fountain and Montgomery counties

A distant relative of mine, Eliza Follick, married a man by the name of James Marsh, and it is believed that they resided in Fountain County, Indiana. Before her marriage, Eliza lived with her mother on a farmstead near Waynetown in Montgomery County, which is to the east of Fountain County. Is there any record of her? Eliza would have been born about 1820, therefore, her death should have been in the years 1875 to 1895. I appreciate any assistance.

Query: Morris/Cultice of Delaware County

I am looking for information on a Nelda Morris born in approximately 1863. The Morris family supposedly lived in Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana. I am also looking for the marriage of April (or close that as a first name) Morris to a Harry Cultice, which possibly took place in 1875 or later, but no earlier than 1860. They had three children from this marriage, all females. Harry Cultice was an organist for a Protestant church in the Muncie area in the 1870s and 1880s.

I am also looking for a divorce announcement of A. Morris Cultice from Harry Cultice, and any cemetery information for the burial site of Nelda Morris or any of the people listed above.

Query: Evans/Mock of Randolph County

Looking for information on Edward William Evans, who was born about 1807. Some census records show his birthplace as Virginia, others show it as Ohio. He married Sally (Sarah) Mock in Randolph County, Indiana in 1830. Looking for information on the family (brothers, sisters or parents) of Edward.

Query: Stallcop/Elson of Clay County

Looking for information on a David Stallcop (may also be spelled as Stalcop or Stalcup), husband of Elizabeth Elson. He was born in Kentucky and is believed to have died in Clay County, Indiana sometime after the 1840 census and before the 1850 census. He is said to be the son of Swithin Stallcop, but I have yet to find absolute proof of this. I have already checked for a will and it doesn't appear David had one. I found the marriage certificate for him and his wife in Lewis County, Kentucky.

Query: Farr of Wayne County

I am searching for the naturalization papers of my ancestor, John Farr. According to his gravestone, he was born 2 November 1836 (we think in Wales) and died 7 September 1875 in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio, where he is buried. He was married to Louise Feight in Richmond, Wayne County, Indiana on 27 July 1868 (I have a copy of the marriage license, obtained from the Wayne County Clerk of Courts office).

There was another John Farr, whose naturalization papers I did obtain, but his birthdate does not match the one on my ancestor's gravestone. Also, it indicates that he was from Prussia, not Wales. The Wayne County Clerk of Courts office has no record of another John Farr other than the one who was from Prussia.

Marcia Farr

Query: Sharp/Smith of Clinton and Madison counties

Looking for any information on Charles Sharp (born December 1867 in Indiana; died 1910-1920) and his wife Charlotte "Lottie" O. Smith (born March 1871 in Indiana; died after 1920), who married 7 April 1889 in Clinton County, Indiana. They lived in Hillisburg, Clinton County, Indiana. They were in Johnson Township, Clinton County, Indiana for the 1900 census and Anderson, Madison County, Indiana for the 1910 census. Lottie is a widow in the 1920 census, living in Kirklin, Clinton County, Indiana.

Charles and Lottie had children:
--Zerna A. Sharp, born 12 August 1889 in Clinton County, Indiana; married - no; death: 1981?
--Rush B. Sharp, born 26 September 1893 in Hillisburg, Clinton County, Indiana; married: 6 September 1922 in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio; death: in Fairfield, Butler County, Ohio
--Morris or Maurice Sharp, born July 1898 in Indiana; death: after 1920

Query: Branen of Indiana

I am doing research on my family tree. I have gotten as far back as a William Osborne Branen born 1820 in Indiana. All I have been able to find about his parents was that the mother's name was Martha born in 1792 and the father was born in England in 1788. I would appreciate any information you could provide.

Query: Fulling/Tieman/Hebbeler of Gibson County

Need information on Maria Elnora Fulling, third wife of Clamer Fulling. I believe she might have been previously married to a Mr. Tieman, and that her maiden name may have been Hebbeler. When were she and Mr. Fulling married? She and Clamer had two children: Henry, who married Caroline Thene, and Sarah Ann, who married Henry A. E. Dassel.

Query:Dickson/Dixon/Hancock/McCreary of Posey County

I am searching for information and origin of my maternal g-g-g-g-grandmother:
Elizabeth Dickson (probably Dixon, possibly Gypsy in origin), born about 1808, Indiana. Residence from 1830-1870 was Point Township, Posey County, Indiana.

Marriage: William Hancock, 1826, Posey County, Indiana.
Children from marriage: John 1826, Elizabeth 1831, Eli 1833, Nancy 1840

Marriage: Alexander McCreary (a.k.a. McCarry, McCleary, McCrery), 1843, Posey County, Indiana.
Children from marriage: Mary Jane 1844 (my ancestress), Thomas 1850, Sarah E. 1854.

By 1870, Elizabeth was using her maiden name once again. Ranch-hand James Morn or Morin also listed in home on census.

I very much want to know the death dates and burial places of Elizabeth Dixon (possibly Dickson) and Alexander McCreary, born 1821 in South Carolina, who may have separated and moved to Tennessee. I have no information on either Elizabeth's or Alexander's parentage. There were many Dixons in the area in 1830, two of which had daughters around the right age to be Elizabeth. There were two Dickson households in Black Township, Posey County, Indiana as well but I canot make a valid connection to any of these.

Once, I brought up a Spanish land grant to an Elizabeth Dixon in the Indiana Territory, several decades earlier, but I can no longer find it and cannot establish a link to my ancestress.

Can anyone help me? I'm open to suggestions.

Query:Lang/Border of Harrison County

I am searching for information on John and Elizabeth (Border) Lang married 13 November 1856 in Harrison County. From census research it looks like they had 6 daughters. Also it would appear that Elizabeth died between 1870 and 1880 as I don't find her in any censuses after the year 1870. I also believe that John's parents may have been Francis and Nancy Lang as I have found them in District 45, Harrison County, Indiana in 1850. John and three of his daughters had moved on to Kansas by 1885. Family rumor has said that John left for Kansas after killing his neighbor in Indiana over a boundary dispute and the fact that the neighbor had killed his dog.

Query:Elliott/Kington of Harrison County

Trying to locate parents of Samuel Elliott born between 1770-1780 in Virginia and died between 1845-1846 in Harrison County, Indiana. He married Mary Polly Kington in Nelson County, Kentucky on 24 February 1799. Mary was born in 1782 in Maryland and died after 1852 in Harrison County, Indiana. I have a copy of Samuel's will listing the following children: Herod, Richard, Gasoway, Lorenzo D. , Elizabeth, James, Gaylon, Mahala, Mildred and John Votan Elliott.

Samuel was a farmer but may have also been a circuit rider for the church.
