Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started several years ago looking for information on my father's grandparents, which led me to all of the other families in my family tree. I now have volumes of information and files of pictures, and lots of books! Someone told me years ago that this hobby would become additive, which it has, but so rewarding. I love finding a new piece to the puzzle. After a trip in 2009 to do research in Washington DC, on family members pension records from the Civil War and research at the DAR Library, for the Revolutinary War, I decided I would look for all of the men who fought in the Civil War with my great, great grandfather (100th Indiana Infantry, Company C, from LaGrange Co., Indiana) I wanted to know who they were and who their families were. So I started compiling info on each of these men. NEWS- (April 2012) I just finished my book and I have several copies available if anyone wants one. It is The Men of the 100th Indiana Infantry, Company C. (I am now compiling information on Company B of the 100th Indiana Infantry). The main families I work on are Rupert, Dye, Lancaster, Walda, Reinking, Holsinger, Oliver. I am always happy to answer questions about any of these families and others too.

DAD WAS BORN IN ANT WERP OHIO AND THE BALANCE OF LIFE IN ALLEN COUNTY INDIANA. yET YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT HIM AND MOM. Mom was born in 1918. Only one item is in error: After the navy he worked at General Electric , then Air Craft Gear, then the bank. He never worked for the railroad. That was his brother. I'm part Thomas,Conn. Crance and Overmyer maybe I can help you. Bob Jr.

RE: John Campbell
Hi Cheri,

I apologize for any confusion. These appear to be the SAME John Campbell's, based on their date of birth. This would also be my wife's 4x great-grandfather. It seems that some Campbell family researchers believed that he was probably buried at Leesburg Presbyterian, as you had indicated. However, Mount Zion Methodist Church cemetery actually has a a metal sign supporting his burial there (along with wife Sarah).

I'm not sure what your source was for the Leesburg Presbyterian burial, but this sign would seem to be more compelling. Of course, the next step would be for me to visit Mount Zion to inquire about their sources for this information. In any case, I just wanted to let you know that your memorial is now in question. If you do find any other information regarding this issue, please feel free to write me back.

RE: Permelia Haines, Avilla
I got the photo of Permelia Haines today. It is hard to read but it does list her name and her husband Robert on the stone. The name Baum is on the other three sides of the stone. Barb
