Seeking anyone from the James E. Lewis and Susanne Teegarden Lewis family who has any information about Malinda Lewis who (I believe) married Edward Jones from Wells Co. IN about 1895.
 Their only child, Pauline, is believed to have been born in Jan 1986.  Pauline died young.  We only know that she visited her father’s brother’s home in Tocsin, Wells Co., IN in June 1913. 
Pauline was alive in the 1910 Census, living with her mother, Malinda Jones, in Lima, OH (Allen Co.).  We also seek information on when and where Malinda and Pauline died. Thanks!

I am tracing the James, George, Oren Culver line in Steuben County, especially before 1880.  They mostly lived in Bath.  I need to know if George W. and George without the W. middle initial are the same person.  There is an age discrepancy of 4 years.  
Oren F. married Andalocia Watson about 1870.   Need verification.  Sometimes Oren is spelled Orrin, Andalocia Anda or Anna.

 

Please reply, using PATRICIA CULVER in the subject line, as I am using my friend Janice Metcalf's  Email for this service.  Thank you.

My name is Danielle CLARK. I'm going off of very limited and vague information. I'm looking for any information or possible relatives in Steuben Co and/or Angola. My grandfather was Thomas D Clark (died in the 1980's I believe) also known to have been dishonorably discharged. He is believed to have worked in Toledo, Ohio as a car salesman too. His father was William Doyle Clark. He was a Captain in the Navy. William married a woman named Adah (maiden name unknown) who died and later remarried a woman name Jeanette. When he passed she left Indiana for Heartland, Florida. I never met my grandfather Thomas Clark (and most say this is a good thing.) but I would like to know the CLARK side of my family as all that is left is my father, his half-sister and my half-sister.

 

Any help would be extremely appreciated!
