Barker, Annie Sowers -- she was a widow for more than 1/4 a Century. She never remarried. Born 8 May 1837 (one source 1839) in Rowan County, NC she moved with her parents, Lewis and Susannah Sink Sowers (see his picture other column) at less than a years old to the Parke/Fountain County IN line. They lived here for less than 20 years. Lewis and Susannah took all of their 11 children (except Annie who was a new bridge and mother) to Page County Iowa where two more children were born to the Sowers'. Susannah died a few days after the birth of her last child, George Valentine Sowers. Lewis can be seen with his second wife, Margaret Infram from this page (other side) whom he married 27 August 1863 in Nodaway County, Missouri after Susannah's death in February 1863. Margaret had five children of her own with first husband, John Cromwell Whittington and one lone Sowers son, Jacob. However, it is said and all indication proves so that she was an exceptionally good mother to Lewis' first crew!

Barker, Austin -- Left to right -- Dora Allen Barker (wife of Austin); Annie Sowers Barker (mother of Austin); Austin Puett Barker (called Pett assumedly as a take-off of his middle name); daughter Floss A.; son George Arvil; and in front, son, Wayne Russell -- love the "Men with their dogs!" (taken between 1910-1918)


Barker, Jesse -- This was behind glass (at my grandmother's, Sarah Morgan Smith, when I was a child, and I would literally sit and stare at my great, great grandfather Jesse. I thought he was so handsome and wanted to know more & more about him. My grandmother was his granddaughter so she knew stories and even took me to Wolfe Creek Cemetery (border of Parke & Fountain counties near Wallace, IN) to see his grave. The sad part of the whole story is that he was quite a rich man, had given the property and some of the money for the Wolfe Creek Church and yet he had no tombstone. She pointed several times where he was, and that only fascinated me more !! kz

Bowsher - probably Lemuel - this seems to be taken at the same time of his brother's picture - how he was not buried as a "tramp" was because he had his photo album with him at the time he was killed b a train. It is likely pictures just like this one and the one below of his two younger brothers were in that photo album. THANKS THANKS THANKS Jennie :)

Clore, Israel -- Margaret Stonebraker Clore   -  I doctored these up some, compare to the originals below - hopefully they look better -- kbz   :)  Shows both sets.
Hello Karen, Israel and Margaret Stonebraker Clore are my great, great grandparents. My Dad's mother was Oveta Clore Fisher. Her father was Charlie Clore of Wallace, IN. and his parents were Israel and Margaret Stonebraker Clore of Wallace, IN. Please add the following information to each of Israel and Margaret Clore's pictures. You can put my name with the pictures. I only mentioned my Grandmother Oveta Clore Fisher because I received the pictures from her. I helped her label many of her family pictures before she died or we wouldn't know who they were. Israel Clore Born 1840 in Indiana. Died 10-24-1881 in Wallace, Indiana to Urial and Dorothy Ann Cosby Clore. He married Margaret Stonebraker 11-29-1862. in Parke Co. They had six children together: William Clore, Charles Clore, Albert Clore, Fannie (Laura) Clore, Ida Clore, and Edna Clore. Margaret Stonebraker Clore was born 9-18-1842 to David and Mary Rush Stonebraker. She died 7-9-1915 in Dana, Indiana - buried in the Phanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Wallace, Indiana. She married Israel Clore on 11-29-1862 in Parke Co. Indiana. Their children are William Clore, Charles Clore, Albert Clore, Fannie (Laura) Clore, Ida Clore, and Edna Clore. Margaret married her widowed brother-in-law, Berryman Clore on 4-3-1893 in Parke Co. Indiana. Margaret had a twin sister Elizabeth (Lizzie) Stonebraker Clore, married to a brother of Berryman Clore. All the work you have done on the Gen Web page is wonderful. I hope I can be helpful and give you more information and pictures in the future too. I am happy to share them with the site, but it would take me awhile to do it too. My Grandpa John Fisher was born in Harveysburg, IN. and both his parents were from Harveysburg, IN. and early pioneers to the area. These days I am helping with our one year old granddaughter. We live in Danville, but my second home is definitely Kingman, IN. Thanks again. Nice to meet you. Here are my scans for Israel and Margaret Clore's pictures as they may look clearer than the electronic transfers.  Cynthia Fisher Smith

Jake Marks, George Marks, Tom Marks, ----, Aunt Lydia, Marion Duncan, I checked on the Marion Duncan and it said he married a Lydia Marks. She must be the daughter of another Marks.

McBroom, Barton -- he's been hiding for years :(

McKinney, William McClure -- son of Presley Thompson and Sarah Jane McClure McKinney. This is the great granduncle of Jeff Quirk, who graciously let me use this photo. William was in Co I, 15th Indiana Infantry, mustering in as 2nd Lt. on 24 April 1861 (from Covington, Indiana) promotoed to 1st Lt. 10 Sept 1861 then Captain 9 Nov 1862. Mustered out 25 June 1864. His dairy is in Wabash College Archives. He seems to be buried in the (at Wingate but since in Fountain County must be near Wingate over the county line) Oak Ridge Cemetery but no death date - just 28 Years 5 Months 19 days - if he was mustered out because of death, then he would be born 6 December 1835 which tallies with the 1850 & 1860 census. Anyone know for sure, let me know :) THANKS

Ratcliff, Capitola (Tolie) and Della (thanks Jennie)

Ratcliff, Susan & family --See also this speculation of who is in the photo -- I have a photo postcard that was mailed in Kingman, July 3, 1907. This appears to be of part of Thomas "Uncle Tommy" Ratcliff's family. It is a photo of some of them. I have been trying to figure out who all the people are. His daughter Susan sent the post card to her brother Zack's (also seen as Zach, Zacharith, and Zacceus based on obits and other records) wife addressed to Yeddo, Ind. Someone later wrote on it with "Mary Ratcliffe Sanders Susan Sowers family". She only says this: July 3, Taken out (assume this meant either at or outside) home the 3rd Sun. July. Ry? didn't feel able to go to Osborn Prairie so we are not going. Susan. I am not sure what date she meant since she mailed it on July 3rd. Possibly, she really meant June or some other month but accidently put July. Unfortunately, Susan didn't list names of everyone. So, I assume she figured her brother's family would know who they are. I have not figured out who 'Ry" could be. I have figured out that Thomas Ratcliff was married twice. I know he is in the picture because I have a newspaper photo of him put in a article in January 1911 and then later when he died in April of 1911. The elderly lady next to him is probably his second wife Elizabeth Jane Little. I doubt if any of the people were from his first wife, Anna Retta Bradford, based on how old the people look in the photo. Silas was in Kansas at this time, so none are probably his family. Ellen and David J. would probably have been older. Emely or Emily Bond could possibly be in the photo, but she too would probably have looked older. I suspect two of the women are Serepta and Ida Ratcliff from the second marriage and sister of Susan. They were not married and still living with their parents. One of the men probably is Edmond "Eddie" Ratcliff since he was living there. Susan is probably in the photo since she mailed it along with her husband Ira Elmer Sowers and their daughter Ruth M. Ruth was born about 1899. Their next child wasn't born until 1912. The question I have is who are the others. Edmond was married to Mary D. s. in 1906 There is one more woman in the photo. They didn't have a child until Based on someone writing her name as Mary Ratcliff Sanders (who was her second husband in 1918, Edmond died in 1911), I suspect she may be the woman. ut if so, it leaves a puzzle as to the other man, two older boys, and another girl. My first guess would be that this is Anderson Ratcliff, his two sons and daughter. His other 2 children would have been young in 1907, but there are no babies or young children in the photo. Possibly they were left out. Also, if Mary is in the photo, where is Anderson's wife? If it is them, Edward "Eddie Thomas Ratcliff, Marion Marshall Ratcliff, and Neomi (Naomi) Ratcliff would be the other young people. Neomi would have been about 7, Eddie would have been about 14, and Marshall would have been about 10. But the young people look older than that. It would make since that they would be Andersons family. However, I found some newspaper articles that say Anderson was sent to the Assylum in Indianapolis in 1905 and again in 1906 and he later died in February 29,1907 there. So, if this was actually taken in June of 1907, he couldn't be in the photo. So, I don't know who the other man is. I found the picture of Edward Thomas Ratcliff who died in WWI. He does look like he could be a older version of one of the young boys, but I don't know for sure. The bigger question is when was the photo taken. She say the 3rd Sun. July, but it is postmarked 3 July 1907. If it really was taken at that time, it would have been from a previous year, such as 1906. In that case it is possible Anderson could be in the photo since he apparently could have came and went back to the hospital since he did it before. If it was taken in 1907, then it is possible that the other man is another Ratcliff. I don't think it would be Zachariah though since he would probably have looked older, plus all of his family would have been older by this time. Three women definitely look like sisters. I can't tell about the forth woman who appears to be a bit younger. One is definitely a son of Thomas, because he just looks like a younger version. The man I am not sure about also looks like he could be a son. The man in the back probably is Ira Elmer Sowers because he doesn't look like the others. Anyway, I was wondering if I could send a copy of the postcard, the newspaper photo of Thomas, and the photo of Edward Thomas and little bio from the Gold Star book, to see if anyone who is related can recognize them. I can give a list of who I think the people might be in the postcard. Thanks Kathy Snow

Veedersburg Baseball Team - (again thanks to Bill Boone and here's his explanation of this team -- The team at the left was called the Veedersburg Little Jersey Baseball team. They beat the Ladoga Leaders and Eddie Summers in a Championship game played on Sept. 25, 1902. The writer of the Crawfordsville paper wrote under the headline: FADED HOPES = The Championship goes to the Veedersburg Team--Ladoga Threw the Game Away. Pre-game news labeled the game as the game which would decide the championship of the two counties of Fountain and Montgomery. The Leaders lost 6-3. Eddie Summers played 1st base and had three hits in four times at bat.

-- W --

Washburn Family -- Fred (born 3 Nov 1885 Attica) and Anna Elizabeth Wagoner (b 30 August 1885 Fountain County) married 2 December 1905 Fountain Co) - their first two children were born in Attica (Melvin - 1906; Clarence - 1910) rest were born in Minnesota - George 1912; Dorothy 1914; Freda 1917 - Lillian 1921 and Donald 1922) - I can only guess who is who there. Fred may have taken the picture - I'd say it's about 1928 so Lillian and Donald are easy as is Freda and Dorothy - not sure about the boys though.

****White, Unknown - could be Alexander below and wife, Hannah (Grant W & I do not think so though) or his father, David & his 2nd wife, Jane Shaw or even Aleander's brother, David & his wife, Fanny Dillon. Any help identifying the people in the photo greatly appreciated. Grant ... Karen
****White, Alexander 1810-1887 - original owned by Mary Virginia Switzer of Fountain County, a descendent of Alexander & Hannah. . Family legend says this man is Alexander White. Photo contributed by Grant White. Thanks so much GW :)

****White Family Home -- anyone know if it's still there? E-mail me or Grant (e-mails above). This home was on "Whites Corner" in Fountain County and was still there in 1986. It was built about 1840 probably by Alexander White, above. I loved Grant's notation -- You can see that most of the people standing in front of the house, and some of the details in the foreground, are very unclear. I don't know if this is due to the age of the photo or to the photograph itself. "You can, though, make out details like the fact that one of the young women is holding a baby, and that the family dog made it into the picture as well. :-)"
****White, Nelson - 1908 officials at Covington
