Karen, Many thanks for the Fruits obituary information; I was able to glean several additional bits of information about the family. Your email prompted me to write you about my "Fruits brick wall" in the hope that someone on the list would provide me with information that I have not been able to find. For a long time (it seems) I have been searching for a son of George Fruits and Catherine Stonebraker, David.

David was married to: (1) Phebe/Phoebe Jones and (2) Harriet Reeder Krout.

The 1870 Census shows David, Phebe and their children, Lucinda and William, living in Wayne Township in Montgomery County.

By the 1880 census Harriet is listed as his wife and they are living in Warren township, Clinton County, Indiana with Harriet's youngest two children, Rebecca and Alijah Krout.

I have not been able to find any record of Phebe's, David's or Harriet's death.

Thanking you in advance for any clues, Beverly Cronk

Jacob Krout is buried Phanuel Lutheran Cem, in Fountain Co but I'm like you I lost track of the other three. Maybe someone on the list can help - sorry, I can't :)

Maybe they're buried in Clinton Co.

Don't see anyone that looks like David or Phoebe in 1900. The "Indiana Marriage Collection, 1800 - 1941 records a marriage between David Fruits and Harriet KRONT or KROUT in Howard Co. on 13 Feb 1880.

Probably not the same man, but... A David Fruits applied for an invalid's pension (in Indiana) on what looks like 9 Jan or Jun 1883, based on service in an Ohio unit.

He enlisted in Company I, 11th Infantry Regiment Ohio on 26 Apr 1861, at age 42. He was buried in Ohio with a death date of: 27 Feb 1902.
