HOBSON, POTTER posted by Erin M. Palli on Wednesday, December 11, 1996

Seeking information on Jesse Mae POTTER Hobson. I have no birth dates or death dates, but she would have been born around 1885 - 1890. She married William Edwin HOBSON and they had five children (Anna Lee, Garland, Potter, Graham, and Raymond). I know she is buried in Walnut Ridge Cemetery in Jeffersonville next to her husband but nothing more of her is known to me. I am working with someone on the Hobson line, so only Potter knowledge is needed. This line has eluded me for quite sometime. Any info whether related or not would be deeply appreciated, even speculations would be more than welcome. She would possibly be found in Harrison and Floyd County, as well as Clark County.

FINDLEY, GREGORY, HOLMES, JOHNSON, LINDSEY, SHIELDS, WAGGONER posted by Carol Huber on Wednesday, January 15, 1997

I am searching for proof of parents for the following LINDSEY family that settled in IN. They had land in Springville, Clark County in 1809. John b 1792 KY d 1874 Laporte IN, m #1 Elizabeth SHIELDS 1814 m #2 Nancy SHIELDS 1833 (Shields girls were cousins), William b 1795 KY (he may have lived in IL), Joshua b 1799 d 1896 IN m Sarah JOHNSON 1823 in IL., Sarah b 1802 d 1850 IN m Stephen McCOY 1820 IN, Nancy b 1806 d 1855 m Friend JOHNSON 1823 Il (brother to above Sarah), Findley b 1809 Clark Co IN d 1884 Humboldt Co CA m Rebecca WAGGONER 1835 White Co IN (my line), Martha m William GREGORY abt 1820 Jackson Co IN, Elizabeth m Benjamin HOLMES 1819 Jackson Co IN, Boyd m ---- Martin. I find 2 possible sets of parents but perhaps neither is correct. #1 Joshua & Elizaberh are listed as parents in a book on the Shields family and Joshua owned land in Clark Co where Findley was born. #2 Wm & Mary/Margaret (FINDLEY) because of an old family letter, the names & ages of the children, and other research done on the Findley family. I am sure since we have so much information on these children that they had a set of parents. Who are they??? Help on any of these families will be most appreciated. (This is not part of the query but there was not space to list all the individuals separately so I put 2 in one space with the same surname. Hope that will not confuse listing them as seperate people not with 2 names.

CONNER posted by Gwynne Conner Lundy on Wednesday, January 22, 1997

Hi, I am trying to find a will for my ggg grandfather John W. CONNER. He was born in VA in abt 1792. He lived most of his life in Clark Co., IN. He died and was buried in the Charlestown IN area (CLARK CO.)in 1858. In a wills book found in the Jeffer- sonville library, a will for a John Conner in 1858 was supposedly in Madison Co.. However, when I contacted them they said their records did not start until 1879. I have checked with Clark and Floyd Counties as well. Is there another way to locate this will of John Conner of 1858? It may not by mine, but I would like to take a look. I wondered if they meant Madison, IN not Co. This would by Jefferson Co. Is this a possibility? Gwynne C. Lundy

My line is from their son Jacob Riley. He is my gggrandfather. I do have info I would share about Jacob Riley to now, with anyone that could help me with info of his parents and back. Or with anyone that is interested. Thank you, Marla BOURLAND VANPELT
