RE: Terpening grave photo
Oh wow! I messaged the original poster of the memorials asking where she got the dates! Glad to know the dates are accurate. I haven't been able to verify by any death certificates and this posting was the only record I've found of their brith or deaths.
Thanks SO much for verifying this!!

RE: Richard Dale Freeman
Sorry, parts of the name were still wet from rain. The next time I get out there I will get a better picture. Parts of that whole section have not been photographed or entered in Find A Grave. I see a new project coming up.

RE: Deivert

I can see that the inscriptions did not weather very well. If it's convenient to try again for a little better definition that's fine. In any case I appreciate your efforts on my behalf.

Thank you again.

Thank you for the info. I was able to link him to his parents! I love making a memorial more complete. FYI I also have Williams co family connections and Shepherd MI connections I love seeing how connected these families were.

RE: Parks
Good info, thanks! Very interesting to hear that you are related to Benjamin Franklin Parks. I'd love to hear more if you discover anything interesting. Courtney is that proverbial brick wall.

RE: Parks
Bummer...was hoping you had found something exciting.

I still think the key is in missing info. The History of Wabash was not written until 34 years after he was already gone so it may not be accurate.

A cousin provided the following info after talking with Mildred Gertrude Smith (George Lewis Parks's wife, he was the Grandson of Courtney), saying that her great, great grandfather (who would be Courtney) came from Ireland through the Port of Philadelphia with a wife and 7 sons. The wife hated America and went back to Ireland after a short time. It said George William Parks and one other son stayed in Wabash, IN. One was killed in the Spanish American war (Samuel), and 4 were unaccounted for and had gone out West.

If we are to believe current info, that would mean Courtney did not get married until he was 30, and did not have his first child, Benjamin Franklin Parks, until he was 37. That seems unreasonable at that time. I believe that it is entirely feasible that the info my grandmother provided has some truth to it. Courtney could have been born in Ireland, got married at an early age in Ireland to another woman besides Julia Ann, had kids, and moved to the US to escape the great famine around 1845. Although all later census and book info indicates Courtney was from Virginia or Kentucky, the Irish immigrants were looked down upon at that time here in the states and it is possible that the family wanted to keep the Irish roots secret.

RE: Parks
HI there James (Jim),

Yes, I am...Courtney Parks would be my Great, Great Grandfather on my Fathers side. One of his sons was George William (Reuben) Parks (my great grandfather). George William (Reuben) Parks had a son named George Lewis Parks (my grandfather), George Lewis Parks had George Sydney Parks (my father).

Please tell me you have found some info as he is still our brick wall. :)

You may have noticed that I did find a picture of Samuel Parks, Courtney's son, who was killed in Mexico in 1914. I finally found a newspaper article with his image and posted it to this site.

Let me know if you've found anything interesting, thanks!

Are you a descendant of Courtney Parks?

RE: Eliza Brunnhoffer
Margaret's obit says that she was born in Toledo, but she was actually born in Williams County, the same as her mother and sister. I've also searched for Gottlieb. There are 2 Ancestry trees for him and they said he (Godfrey) was born in Switzerland in 1823. Nothing more on him.
