Lora 31 Dec 2000 (ADDISON) Don Addison born Nov 21, 1893, in Rush County, he was the son of Jesse and Lillie Dale (Powell) Addison. Don married Avenell (Morris) Addison. He had a son named Jesse, and Howard, J. Lynn Addison, Isabel Gardner, and a sister Mildred Nigh. In Don's obit it says he was 100. This would have made him born in 1793. The obit gives his father, who is Jesse, I am trying to find out where Jesse was born, and who his father was. Sure could use some help on this one. Any suggestions?

Carol Gould 14 Dec 2000 (WILSON) I am searching for information on my gr-gr-grandfather, REUBEN WILSON, who was married to ELLEN HOSKINS on May 2, 1857 in Coles County, Illinois. The only information I have on him comes from the 1860 census in Coles County -- his age at that time (23) and his state of birth, Indiana. That would make his birthdate about 1837. There seem to be many Wilson's in Coles County who came from RUSH COUNTY, INDIANA.

Lorna Parrish 8 Dec 2000 (CLOYD) Looking for info. on my g.grandfather Caleb Cloyd, b. 15 Sep. 1830 in Ripley Twp., Rush Co.

Peggy 8 Dec 2000 (POWELL, COPES) Does anyone have access to some sort of records for the ME church ..... my ancestor GEORGE E. POWELL & KEZIAH (Kiza) COPES would have been in the Rushville/New Salem area ..... and I'm trying to pinpoint their location. Since his children continued membership with the ME Church for many years later, it's a "most probable" thing to assume that he & Kiza attended one there in Rush County. Are there membership/baptismal/burial records available for the church????

Virgene 8 Dec 2000 (ADKINS,KENNEDY,NEWLAND,HENDRICKS) John ADKINS and spouse, Elizabeth ADKINS, lived in the same section, twp and range, in Hancock Co IN as my gg-grandfather, Thomas KENNEDY, in 1854. This couple signed a document the same day as my gg-grandfather, Thomas K. signed the same *type* of document which I *think* was selling a portion of their land to an attorney to raise money for a court appeal in behalf of Thomas K. My question is: Does anyone on this list have an ADKINS who was in any way associated with KENNEDY. Thomas KENNEDY was b. in VA abt 1790. I find him first in Huntington Twp, Brown Co OH, in 1830. He purchased land in Hancock Co IN in 1834 and is shown on Buck Crk Twp, Hancock Co IN census of 1840, spouse Mary, b. abt 1806, in OH. I have the names of his six of his children. Sarah A. mar George HUDSON; Eliza Ann, mar. Christopher RULEY; Mary Jane, mar. 1st John UNDERWOOD, 2nd Frederick HENDRICKS, in 1859. Mary Jane and Frederick are my g-grandparents. There are three minor children listed for Thomas KENNEDY and spouse, Mary, on the 1850 census of Hancock Co IN. They are Nancy Susan, James Levi and Francis Newland KENNNEDY. The middle name NEWLAND may be a clue as to a relationship. Perhaps this is the maiden name of Thomas KENNEDY's spouse, Mary. So far, I have not been successful in finding a listing of a marriage for Thomas and Mary. Suggestions and/or answers to the above would be most appreciated.

Frank Deutsch 8 Dec 2000 (LEFFORGE) I am looking for John and Mary Smith Lefforge my Gr Gr Grandparents.

Shows them married Rush County, IN., along with her sister Delila Johnson/Johnston to Joseph Rambo, in 7 Oct 1830. Two Rambo girls on the same marriage site, also lists a Annon and Josiah James, who married Elizabeth and Anna, also both married 1830 Rush Co.; Jeremiah Higgins and the two James boys, all appear to be in Madison County, IN., by the 1850 US Census,except for Jeremiah Higgins.
