Query: Wireman Bible, Washington County

            I'm hoping for information on a Bible: Wireman Bible with births 1744 -1786. A Mrs. H.K. of Salem, Washington County, had the Bible in 1956. I am hoping the Indiana Genealogy Society has copied it. Thank you for any help concerning this Bible.

Query: Cassel Family, Cass County

            My great-great-grandfather was a Civil War vet, wounded in Texas and died in 1880. I have been searching for years for a burial site and date of death with no luck. I have found records on Ancestry and Fold3, but nothing on dates or places.

            His second wife Adaline drew a pension and lived in Logansport, Cass County. She was the mother of my grandfather James Luther Cassel of Logansport.
