Joseph H Evans FAG# 23720478

I wondered if you have more information about this memorial? I think the parents are James E Evans and Martha Jane Evans, but can't be sure. If so, this memorial helped me to knock down a brick wall.

I knew that my GGGrandmother, Sarah E Evans Watson (1860--1937; Find A Grave# 64702568) was born in Hartford City, Indiana between 1860 and 1861. Because she was born after the 1860 census, and because her father died during the Civil War, I don't have great documentation, only my grandmother's recollection of Sarah's father's name. I also have her death certificate, issued in Joplin Missouri in 1937 that named her parents, but no one at that time knew her mother's maiden name. I had no information about Martha, Sarah's mother, until today.

I started taking a very close look at all of the census records for Blackford Co., Indiana and came across a Martha J Stewart, Clark Stewart and Sarah Stewart living with the Lyon family.

Do you know if Clark Stewart's sister, Martha J Stewart, married James E Evans in Indiana? I think that my Sarah and Joseph H Evans are siblings, but can't be sure.

Any information you can offer might help. Thanks so much. I don't think I'll ever find James E. Evans' grave because of the war, but would love to find as much as I can about Martha.

Thanks so much...

Thank you Dawn, I've sent you a message. I look forward to hearing from you whenever it is convenient for you. :)

Descendant of Calvin and Caroline Shields?
Hi Dawn, this may be a long shot but I found an archived message on the RootsWeb message board for Wells County (from 2000) in which you (or someone with the same name) mentioned being a descendant of Calvin & Caroline Shields, via their daughter Elmyra Agnes. I recognized your name from the records here and so I thought I would try and contact you. I, too, am a direct descendant of Calvin and Caroline via their eldest son, and I am hoping to make contact with other descendants still in Wells County. If you would be interested in sharing information, please leave me a message and I will get in touch with you. Best wishes - SL

Sorry about the relationship edit request confusion, but I wanted to link the children to original Jacob Palmer (1785-1862) memorial that you created, instead of the recent duplicate, for consistency reasons. I didn't realize the memorial had been duplicated until after I submitted the first edit request.

Transfer oops????
Hi. I got two transfers from you and believe you may have wanted to transfer them to someone else and accidentally transferred them to me. I've transferred them back to you since I do not know them nor remember requesting them: Lewis and Ruth Vera Schwarzkopf. Thanks anyway. Hope you find who is looking for their relatives!! Good Luck!

Dawn, thank you for finding and adding my great-great grandfather. He and his wife are buried in seperate cemeteries. No one in the family could remember where he was buried. I would like to request that if you would please transfer his memorial to me. I am trying to get my mother's side of the family tree together and this helps greatly. I have information on him that will help complete his memorial. Thank you for your help and time.

Thanks you so very much for transferring the Foy graves to me so that I can connect the families. I am so grateful to you and the others who have taken the time and effort to log the cemeteries, take photos and place portraits on the sites.
I think of it as writng the history of our families when we connect them. I promise to pass along any information to anyone whom I can help.
