|patricia hook||RE: Eliza F. Overturf Hukill|
I have all of the information you have. But the story of the Hukill bible is not what I was told by my grandmother. I thought maybe you know sometime I did not.
My grandmother was Phoebe Inez Hukill Stoneking, daughter of Henry Lincoln Hukill, son of Henry Harrison Hukill.
My grandmother had two brothers Melvin and Earl both lived in North Vernon, Indiana, in the seventies. Henry Melvin was the oldest, he had the Hukill bible, not the person you said. He took the bible to someone in North Vernon to get it recovered and the person closed up shop and left town with bible in tow. They had heard he went to the Carolinaís, so bible is long gone.
Melvinís son, Marlin Eugene (Buddy) is still living in North Vernon, Indiana.
My Aunt who is my motherís sister and daughter of Phoebe Inez just talked to him on phone a couple of weeks ago. His son (not sure of his name) talked to the lady you mentioned Mary Margaret Adams, who came to North Vernon to get information from bible. This was before it disappeared.
Melvin also got a trunk with Hukill papers in it but he had it stored in basement and it got ruined with water. Somehow my grandmother got about a dozen morgate deeds from Henry Lincoln in 1880ís, some paperwork from Mary Ann Wise Hukill and a deed for lane along the Illinois Railroad. There was also a handwritten deed for the original land in Brown Twp. Ripley County that Henry Harrison bought.
