Bio and Links
I have been working on genealogy since the age of 12. I was born and reared in Boone County, Indiana and have a lot of relatives there. My husband was born and reared in Harrison County, Indiana where we live today. Almost all of his family is from here. Mine is scattered all over the state of Indiana. I hope that someone I've added will help you make a connection and be of value to you. Feel free to contact me about anyone I've added so that we may share data.

I sent you another message too, just wanted to make sure I covered all the bases. :-)

This is not Elizabeth C Blunk! This woman is Elizabeth Frances Mulkins, who married Jacob Wesley Detrick in 1857.

Elizabeth C Blunk married a different Jacob Deatrick in 1881. Both are much younger than these two at rest here.

Elizabeth Frances Mulkins outlived Jacob Detrick by at least 8 years if not more. He died in 1912 and in 1920, Elizabeth was living with their son Philip. In 1930 Philip is living alone, so I'm guessing Elizabeth died sometime between 1920- 1930. The last payment made to her Army Widow's pension was in 1920.

So this is not a case where Jacob's first wife died and then he married a second wife in 1881. This Jacob is NOT the same Jacob that married Elizabeth C Blunk. I've been researching relatives of the Detrick family, and am 100% positive, without a doubt, that this is Elizabeth Frances Mulkins Detrick who lies buried here - and not Elizabeth C Blunk, who lies elsewhere.

I hope you will change this information, as people who are looking for Elizabeth Blunk will not find her here and those looking for Elizabeth Mulkins will not be able to find her even though she is here.

Herschel Thomas Pete Dean
In Laconia,indiana.

Hello there, just shooting you a question about a fellow who's grave I found and you have listed. Herschel Thomas Pete Dean. This man is supposedly my grandfather. I found this out through my father and trudging through ancestry websites he has been linked to us there as well. However there is no information about him or any information about his parents.Knowing this i believe you might have or could possibly find out some information for me. I would be so grateful, and All i want to do is find out my families lineage.

Thank you very much,
