Query for Tippecanoe County: Searching Quigley family. Have quite a
bit of information, and willing to share. Thanks. Shelly, in

My mother is Mohawk Indian and was born on the Tippocanoe river
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
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,
He married (I'm sure in Tip.Co) a Martha Stafford who was born in
Co. on January 1, 1814. Her parents were Tom and Elizabeth Stafford who
orginated in Perequmans Co. NC. Any information about either family
be most helpful. I would like to know who William's parents were. In
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
born in Lafayette, Indiana. I was told he was an only child, but I
they did not know for sure. His parents must be buried in Tippacanoe
William and Martha had three children who died of a fever I think in
They are surely buried in Tippecanoe County. Their names were
Martha Ann, and Thomas. Also a daughter Abigail may have already been
or stayed in Indiana.
