RE: Cordelia Blackburn
Cordeila Delia Summers Larue Blackburn appears to have married Malcolm P. Blackburn, son of Louis Blackburn. Malcolm was born circa 1906 and died on 16 August 1935. I have not found a marriage record for them, but they are together in 1930 and his death record lists Delia as his wife.

Smith Family - Clay Co., IN
Just read a message on your board from 2015 stating, "They all lived in the same area of Posey Twp., Clay County which is near the border of Vigo and Clay counties near Cloverland IN. Another man Marshall Smith lived in the same area... I have only found 2 daughters for him, that is a possibility as well as Gideon Smith."
I've been trying to track down a Marshall Smith that had resided in 1830 Augusta Co., VA then disappears. His neighbor, Daniel Shirley on the 1830 census ended up in Vigo Co., IN. Found the Marshall Smith on the 1850 Posey, Clay Co., IN with wife, Mary, son Joseph and daughter Jane but nothing after this.
Wondering if you have any other clues I may search to see if it's the same Marshall Smith that I'm tracking from Virginia.

Hello DM, I saw your note on James Stevens and I wonder how you are related or who you are related to. I'm related through Thomas Stevens.

Glad you were able to remove it. And I agree about there being a lot of Mary Polly's in our family. Gets confusing sometimes!

John Kincaid
I was wondering if I could receive a transfer for John Kincaid (103613175)? He was my husband's fourth great grandfather on his paternal side.

I am working on his family's genealogy and this would be a great surprise.

Thank you.

RE: Ephriam B Jones
I was just looking at your answer to my message. Did I ever answer you? Yes Emily Howell, the wife of William Williams, is a daughter of my John Howell. Ephraim Jones was the witness to the will of John Howell. John died in Illinois but the will was probated in WI in the 1850s.

Mary Jane Howell and Jeremiah Brown are no relation to my John Howell.

What are the names of those in the Clark/Jones and Brown families that are yours. I am still missing the info on 2 sisters of John Howell - Ruth and Emma. Ruth was born in the 1790s and Emma about 1800. Could these be wives in your family??

Thanks for answeering, Leslie
