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".

RE: William Smith McNeil
Glad to help. I've located marriage records and even an old photo. I have them up on Ancestry.
William Smith McNiel was my 3rd great grandfather. - Steve

RE: Eathel Muston
Jim, I don't know if I still have it but you can get a copy from the Vigo Co library- start with her death date and they can send it to you. talk to JAnice there. I probably added hers with a relative of mine being in the same paper. geraldine

RE: excuse me
Sorry, but I believe corrections were sent from the WIFE's memorial, so I was confused. Please resend and I will be sure to do them. Thanks, Vonda

RE: Virgil Glenn Loden
Nellie Mae Hartman Loden remarried Cleon Overton Callis. She is buried in Adams Cem, Parke Co, Indiana. I don't have any info on Catherine Sue Loden besides her being born in 1937. You said she died in 1999, do you know who she married? I have linked Nellie to Virgil but would love to link his daughter to him and Nellie too. Sorry I don't have any pictures. I do have a few contacts with this branch and will do some checking for you.
