Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

Marietta Wood Adams
Dear Jim,

I just saw that you had connected Marietta Wood Adams #138393891 last November to her parents and siblings. Her brother Charles F. Wood was my great-grandfather.

Today I learned that George A. and Phebe (White) Wood had brought a group of orphan children to homes in Parke County. So glad that whomever wrote her obituary included this.

Are you connected? Do you have any more information about the family and/or information (names) about the New York connection?

Thank you for connecting her to her family.

RE: Mount Jackson Cemetery in Indianapolis
Mount Jackson was basically abandoned and the township mows, somewhat maintains, and keeps a record but what they have is incomplete.

Their website:

Wayne Township for Mount Jackson

I have the second page of her obituary. Can I send that to you? Or can I type it in? Also, are you related?
Thanks! Patrick
