If you are related to Mary, let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer her memorial to you. Most of my entries for Fairview Cemetery are not relatives so I will gladly transfer.

Your welcome. I'm sorry to have to use chalk but they were unreadable without it. John's was not readable at all under his name. Glad to help you out. :)

Edward Key

I have a question on Edward A Key #23420635 Whiteneck Cem Grant Co Indiana.

Am wondering how you knew his parents were Z and E Key?

Have been trying to find Zack and Elizabeth Cain-Key.

Thank you!,
Virgie Perrin

In answer to this question, It would have been from a runoff sheet from a cemetery, and nI just entered the info from that.

Could you tell me the source for the death date and that he was born the same month?

Key family
I disagree with your comments that the George & Rebecca (Mintun) Key family "never" lived in Fayette county, Indiana, and that "all" of their children were born in Montgomery county, Indiana, with the obvious exception of sons David and Joseph Stoner, who were born in Iowa.

From all available records, their daughter, Hannah J., was born in Ohio on 10 August 1820, sixteen months prior to their marriage in Indiana. Naturally, Rebecca resided with her former husband, Moses Rardin, in Washington county, Ohio circa 1815, so her presence in eastern Ohio is documented. From all accounts, Moses Rardin was terribly scarred by small pox (possibly left sterile), and that he was married and divorced several times in a short span of years. I don't know of anyone who has documented the date or circumstances of Moses and Rebecca's separation/divorce with actual records (if they even exist), but it is possible she simply left Moses for George, and lived together "common law" in Ohio prior to moving into Indiana - possibly for several years.

Indiana state records show that George Key and Rebecca Rardin were married 2 December 1821 in Union county, Indiana, which borders Ohio state to the east AND Fayette county, Indiana to the west. My ggg-grandmother, Eliza Jane (Key) Mincher/Moorhous/Leonard/Wilson personally wrote that she was born in Connersville, which is in Fayette county - 1 year and 10 months after her parents married in neighboring Union county. The earliest land record that I can find for George Key in Montgomery county, Indiana dates to 1826, three years after my ggg-grandmother was born. I see no conflict in this, and no cause to doubt the word of my ggg-grandmother that she was born in Connersville. Similarly, her older sister Julian (first wife of Eliza's first husband, Edward Mincher), was probably born about the time of the marriage of their parents in either Union or Fayette county, Indiana.

The biography of their son, Darius, states that George Key "settled in the eastern part of Ohio, where his marriage was celebrated, but later removed to the western part of the same State, and afterward emigrated to Montgomery County, Ind., making his home in LaFayette." However, LaFayette is in Tippecanoe county, and due to the similarity in names, may have actually been an error regarding their previous residence in Fayette county. Note that it states George's marriage (to Rebecca) was "celebrated" in eastern Ohio; they probably met in eastern Ohio, but were actually married years later in eastern Indiana. At any rate, Daruis's biography related a number of events, all of which occurred prior to his birth, likely with no written documentation available, and nearly 30 years after the deaths of his parents (including the possible death of his father as a prisoner-of-war somewhere other than Texas in August 1864; likely drafted by the CSA in Texas, and reportedly captured by Union troops at Vicksburg, Mississippi - yet another subject of debate). At best, it hints at the truth, and is somewhat supported by documentation, that George and Rebecca lived together in eastern Ohio, western Ohio, eastern Indiana, western Indiana, and finally in eastern Iowa.

RE: Aunt Opal
She was cremated and I believe was not buried. I will have Mom ask Paul. It was terrible. She had cancer. It was so bad they removed part of her jaw and places in her neck had cancer knots. She suffered and they had her on a morphine pump to keep her comfortable. Mom and her where so close. Our family was completely devastated by her ordeal and her death as well. She is out of pain I am thankful for that.

If your only proof of his year of birth is from the census, I'd be looking for confirmation somewhere else as well. The census can be incredibly inaccurate...

Sorry to be so slow. Took a break?? and painted the trim on my living room. Going to do the walls tomorrow - lucky me!

RE: Hugh Nickelson
you can create memorials even if you do not know where person was buried. Put other and give a reason like "non cemetery burial" then after memorial is created, change it to burial unknown. Look up Ida Mae Nickelson's and see how it is done.

I fixed it for you. Sent messages to creators of memorials asking them to link Hugh as father.

Added by skydancr on Jul 08, 2012 4:27 AM

Hugh Nickelson
Why don't you link Hugh's memorial to those of his children who have a Find #? That is better than me pasting the # into his bio. You do that under family links.

RE: Find A Grave

Added by Digger4Genealogy on Jul 07, 2012 4:12 PM

RE: Find A Grave
In that area you would add in the memorial number of the parents or spouse(s), (This is on the memorial that you maintain. As to the children, you would have to maintain that memorial to add in the parents links or send a message to the contributor of that memorial.

I hope this helps.
