I have been very successful in filling in the sides of my family which previously had little documentation. I would love to help anyone I can assist with the information I have been able to ascertain. This is the reason I have made virtual cemeteries and am adding biographies to the memorials. I would also appreciate any information others might have and are willing to share, especially if I have some incorrect information.

RE: Philip Phillip) Hart
Sally & Bob,
Haven't heard back from you recently on my notes.
Assume you are not interested in further information on Phillp Hart and succeeding owners of his property. Thanks for the question about his family grave site. From the 1936 article it appears it was probably destroyed by home development or farming.

RE: Philip Phillip) Hart
Did you get a chance to look at the two volume's of Owen County History? If so you know there are many references to Phillip Hart.
I took a quick look at Findagrave and two such names are listed, one in 1866 the other 1871. I'm sure too young for your man.
I'll continue to scan the references for your Phillip and see if they say in the local histories.
Otherwise, still happy to check the next time I go to Spencer.

RE: Philip Phillip) Hart
Sorry, I don't know Phillip Hart's burial location.
However, I'm on a first name basis with the genealogy librarian, and only live about 10 miles north of Spencer. I'll be happy to check for you the next time I'm in Spencer.
In the meantime, I'll check a website you need to know about. It is called Sweet Owen and surrounding areas. The Owner is Debbie Jennings. Debbie and I are distantly related on my mother's mother's side of the family. Debbie started 15 years ago, collecting information on Owen Co., IN and gradually expanded it to most of the surrounding counties. She has cemeteries included on her site.
I'll check and get back to you either way.

RE: Dr. Mathew M. Jones
OK, so you are related. Got a big question for you.
If you know Jay Jones, he and I have corresponded for several years. M.M. Jones was the husband of E.J. Dean Jones. She was an older sister of my GG grandfather Wm. H. Dean.
Between Jay and myself, I think we've plowed the ground pretty thoroughly, but still have one "family jewel" to discover.
E.J. Dean Jones obit stated she kept a journal her entire life, and wrote a lengthy story on her parents lives.
Needless to say, I would dearly love to find that story. I'm currently working with the Howard Co., genealogist to see if she can find what Jay and I have yet to discover.
Any ideas?

Dr. Mathew M. Jones
Obituary of Dr. Matthew M. Jones, Kokomo Gazette Tribune, Tuesday, January 27, 1891:
"An Aged Pioneer Departs"

Dr. M.M. Jones after an illness extending over two years, departed this life at his home on south Union Street at 11 o'clock today, aged seventy-two years ten months and twenty days. The cause of death was softening of the brain and spine. He was first attacked in November, 1888, and though he had been at death's door a number of times, rallied again. For the past three months he had been extremely low, death finally coming to his relief at the hour named. he suffered intensively at times, his paroxysms of pain being more of a mental than physical character.
M.M. Jones was born March 7, 1818, near Winchester, Kentucky. When eight years of age he removed with his parents to Owen County, Indiana, remaining there until attaining his majority. He studied medicine at Gosport, Indiana. November 20, 1845, he was married to Eliza J. Dean, who survives him. In March, 1845, he removed to Tipton county where he began the practice of his profession, remaining there until October, 1865, when the family removed to the city where they have since continuously resided. The Doctor on removing here gave up practicing, retiring from business altogether.
Five children were born to them, one of whom, the eldest daughter, Sarah F., preceded the father to the tomb. The surviving children are Mary F., wife of Dr. Hoss, of Indianapolis, Joseph W., residing at Russell Springs, Kansas, Lafayette and Morton C. A valuable estate is left consisting chiefly of real estate in Tipton county.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and a member of the Masonic fraternity. He was widely known and universally respected by all with whom he was acquainted. The time for the funeral will be announced later. The Masonic order will conduct the obsequies with internment at Crown Point cemetery.

Joseph F Chapman
Joseph is nephew of man who married into my husband's family in Cass County Missouri. I live in that area and have lots of information but there are some real mysteries for such recent times! I believe the Chapman, Martin and Dawson families were connected before they came to MO. If you are interested in exchanging, I'd love to do it - am limited to library time when I'm not babysitting my great-granddaughter so replies could be slow, depending...

RE: Edwin Karn's parents
I am looking for documentation on Samuel Barilla Karn's death. Do you know where the date of death, Aug. 19, 1865, came from?

Edwin Barzilla Karn
I am interested in knowing if you have found any death/burial information on Edwin's parents, Samuel Barzilla Karn and Elizabeth Fairchild. I am related to Edwin by way of his younger sister Catherine Karn Hart. I have traced the mother to Michigan, but no further. Warm Regards, Dena
