NOTE: Salamonia, Indiana, in Madison Twp., was first named Lancaster, and was platted in the summer of 1839. The original plat covered about five blocks, but in 1904 an addition was filed, covering a half dozen lots to the south of Washington Street. When the post office was established there, the name was changed to Salamonia, because there was another post office in Indiana named Lancaster.

Grandpa, I'm 7th generation. Everyone is talking about you and Sarah now. Thank-you to you and Sarah, because without you none of us would be here! I would not have my little girl either. You both would adore her. I'm so lucky. Life is GREAT.
