I am researching my ggrandparents, JOHANN GEORG MAST and PAULINE SPITZNAGEL. Johann (John) came to Lafayette in 1866 from Wertemburg, Germany. Pauline was born in America about 1860, but the 1880 Census lists her father from Baden, Germany and her mother from Hesse, Germany. John and Pauline had eight children. The seventh was my grandfather, RUDOLPH HEINRICH MAST. Any addition info on either family would be greatly appreciated.

I am curious about things that happened in the past concerning my family. I am originally from Frankfort Indiana and my mother's family is from Lafayette. In 1971 my mother was raped and was wondering if there was any information on that in the court records. It would have occured around Sept or so. Also, she died in Dec 1976 in a car accident and I was wanting to read some information about the accident. I was also in the accident. I am now 25 and married and would like to discover information of my past. The last name for my mother would have been Pelfree in 1971 and Knuckles after she married. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
