We are trying to find any descendants of Samuel McCormick b. 1 Feb 1802, d. 4 Mar 1853. Samuel was the son of James McCormick Sr. who is alleged to have been a Revolutionary War veteran. James Sr. came to Ohio (Greene co) and died there in 1825. When the estate was settled in 1828 (another mystery--why did it take so long?) his son Samuel paid $5 for the family Bible. Samuel then moved to Tippecanoe Co., and are told that he died there. He was married to Isabella (Bartels) 1810-1879. We know nothing about James Sr's parents, and presume that this Bible might give some clues.

I would like to add the surname of BEHRENS, Rudolph R. Behrens, he lived at 1530 Virginia Street Layfayette. Born 1842. His son Rudolph Behrens, who had quite a family, married Daisy "Dale" Witz, . Mary b 1893 Lafayette Emmett"Rudy" b.June 1895(family rumor was he was with the Dillinger gang) along with his brother Bill, Charlie. My grandfather John Behrens was born in Monticello. Another family name was Nicholas WILLEMS who was married at one time to Rudolph Behrens, divorced him, and remarried him after WILLEMS children married. They all lived in and around Layfayette, in fact my Great Aunt, who I am in touch with, went to St. Bonafice Convent when she was small. I realize that this information is not complete by any means, if you need more or have any questions, feel free to email me. Thank you, Joni K. McGowen jk@qtm.net

My mother is Mohawk Indian and was born on the Tippocanoe river reservation. The only way she could get her social security was a old family Bible. Her maiden name was Minnix. Her mother was fun blood Mohawk with the last name Georgie Lovelace and her father was Minnix. There has been almost no way to trace the Mohawk's in Indiana. Any help appreciated.

Looking for any information about the Shaw family that orginated in Ohio. My great great Grandfather was a William Shaw born April 20, 1807. He married (I'm sure in Tip.Co) a Martha Stafford who was born in Tippecanoe Co. on January 1, 1814. Her parents were Tom and Elizabeth Stafford who orginated in Perequmans Co. NC. Any information about either family would be most helpful. I would like to know who William's parents were. In the Iowa 1860 census William and Martha are listed and it says William was born in Ohio. In some of the other family history that I have says he is born in Lafayette, Indiana. I was told he was an only child, but I believe they did not know for sure. His parents must be buried in Tippacanoe County. William and Martha had three children who died of a fever I think in 1829. They are surely buried in Tippecanoe County. Their names were Elizabeth, Martha Ann, and Thomas. Also a daughter Abigail may have already been married or stayed in Indiana.
