I have been researching my family lines for more than 30 years. Some of those lines are Pate, Binkley, Wiseman, Graham, Miller, Mix, Frederick/Friedrich, Price, Smith, Hodges, Haley and so on.
Current works in progress are the compilation of the family history of Pate, their ancestors in France, and the community they lived in - Cold Friday in Harrison County, Indiana.
The book on Cold Friday is about 10 months away from publication [as of 5 February 2015]. Would like contibutions of stories, family histories and pictures. Anyone interested in contributing to this, please contact me on Find A Grave or by e-mail. Your contributions will help to add "flesh to the bones" of these fascinating people - friends and neighbors - who lived at Cold Friday, and will make it a better story. Your contributions will be credited to you.
Frank Pate I have been researching my Martindale family and find that Estella Balcom, Daughter of Charles E Balcom and Mary Baker Balcom, was born 16 Jan 1870 in Waterloo, Black Hawk, Iowa. She married 3 times. 1st to Albert Martindale,4 May 1899, in Linn Iowa. Albert died 1911. 2nd to Edwin Meyers before 1915 as she is listed Estella Meyers in 1915 Iowa census. Estella and Edwin Meyers were living in Chicago, Ill., where Edwin died 23 Jan 1923. She returned to Iowa and married Frank Pate, 18 Sep 1924,in Waterloo. They apparently divorced as that is how Frank Pate is listed in 1940 census. Although Estella is not directly related to you, this fills in who she was. Judy Clements
RE: John & Reuben B. Binkleyu As long as you asked in a way (of relationship)that is in their guidelines, they should transfer to you. It may take a week or two. Let me know if I can help in any other way, geraldine
