Query: George William Warren, Jackson County

            Looking for information regarding my 2nd g-grandfather, George William Warren (aka William Warren). He was born about 1857 in Indiana (have not found out where exactly).
            Anyways, he married Ms. Martha J Ramsey on Nov 4, 1889, in Jackson County, Indiana.  There they had and raised 7 children.  They lived in Jackson County for the majority of their lives, except in 1920, which was the last census I was able to find a record of George W. Warren.  I did find in the 1930 U.S. Census a record of Martha, his wife, and it listed her as a widow. 
            So my query is what happened to George and when? Thank you.

Query: William Higgins, Franklin County

             I am needing information on William Higgins and his wife Ann who lived in Franklin Co., IN, during the 1850's. William possibly died there before 1860, because Ann and the two sons, James and John moved to IL. There was also a daughter Elizabeth who married a Daniel Lewis who also came to IL.
            I would like to find a grave site for William in Franklin, Co., IN. I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

Query: Reuben Hazlewood, Orange County

            Is there anyone in Paoli, Orange County, who I could hire to copy a will for me from the Courthouse? I have been trying for a while to acquire this copy.  I called the courthouse, and they would not provide me with one.
            It is in Will Book No. 2 and is for my ancestor Reuben Hazlewood.  Thank you.
