Query: Jeremiah Horan/Jerry Horn, White County

 Just getting back from Ireland. Couldn't find any more info, but I had found a death notice in Sept 1872 in the Monticello paper for a Jerry Horn.  Any chance there would be cemetery records there, possibly helping narrow down a birth date? Not sure what parish might have any records also


[Follow up for this September 2017 Query]

Looking for info on Jeremiah Horan. Died, remarried? Born around 1828 in Ireland; Was in the 1870 census in Monticello, White County, married to Ellen; Not in the 1880 census; she remarried a Michael McDonald. Would your databases have any more info than ?

Query: Nancy Boyd Hern Kern, Lawrence County

I am having much difficulty finding proof for my 94-year-old mother's DAR application. She is Claribel Kern, born 1924 in Lawrence Co., IN. -DAR does not accept family history books or census records. I need to document that that Nancy Boyd Hurd Kern born 1801 in KY, wife of Alexander Kern, was the daughter of Revolutionary War patriot, John Boyd, born 1760 and/or his wife Ann Nancy Martin.

John Boyd and Nancy Boyd Kern are both buried in Lawrence County, but not in the same cemetery. - DAR says there were many John Boyds during those years and we must connect to this specific John Boyd. - There is a Boyd family Bible mentioned online, but I can't find it. Can you help?
