Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching many families in Shelby County, Indiana. My blog, Shelby County, Indiana Ancestors is online at:

My Shelby County Indiana connections include Steward (Stewart), Williams (3 lines!), Imel, Rush, Terhune, Sanders, Lisher, Armstrong, Alexander, Rohm, Harrell,Dubois, and many families from the northern half of the county.

Please use the Edit button to submit any corrections or additions to my memorials.

I have encountered others on Find A Grave who seem to think it is a big numbers game. Adding so many memorials without making sure they are correct. It is greatly appreciated by everyone if the facts are correct.

If I have placed a memorial on Find A Grave and you are related, please contact me and I will be HAPPY to transfer it to you. I have placed most of these online to assist others.

Would you mind putting the tombstone photo on Earl's site. No one had made him one so just did that. Thanks, geraldine

Not a problem. My mother was a Rush and I am stuck at James as well.

Daniel Padrick of Rye Valley Oregon
Hello again Judith, Just a note to thank you for the information about Shelbyville Gen. Library. I contacted them and immediately received copies of the pages pertaining to Daniel of Rye Valley. While The Padrick Story did not contain a birth record, I feel confident that the tie is there.
I corresponded with Doreen Cyrus Rose, a cousin, in Oregon in 1989-1992 or so. She was most generous with the Portland Padrick information and was a careful researcher amassing a great deal of Padrick information. When I saw that she had contributed to The Padrick Story, I realized that there must be a tie to Indiana. Doreen has played a major role in bringing the Padrick information together. We owe her a big thank you.
I apologize for questioning the research of others, but have been disappointed by so many using the census only for research. Thank you again. I believe we must be "cousins."

Daniel Padrick 84285294 died 1884 Oregon
Thank you for the reply. Meant NC--was sleepy!! Am sending this from Normand's Find A Grave site. I am an unpaid secretary. haha my site (GLLinmanMoore).
I will try to contact the Shelbyville Gen. Library if I can find their address or telephone No.
Important to know what year the book was written, what documentation other than census or word of mouth, and how close the family ties of the author were to Daniel of Oregon. I tried to find a Shelbyville obit for a sibling which might mention our Daniel, but he wasn't named in anything I saw.
We need to get this cleared up. Not only do we need good documentation before we accept that Daniel of Shelby Co. was our Oregon Daniel's father, but need to salvage his reputation. So many of the family trees have him married and divorced 3-4 times! Very busy for a man who came to Oregon and settled down to farming in a remote area of Oregon and raised 12 children (including Norm's grandmother). Thank you again for responding. Louise

My husband's Grt.Grt.Grandfather was Isaac, and son Albert was his Grt.Grandfather 😊. What is your lineage, Judith? Maybe we can compare notes?

Many thanks for the death info on Isaac! I've added it to his memorial 👍
