Bio and Links
I became fascinated with Vermillion County many years ago. My people settled there in 1839. They travel in groups and came from Caledonia County, VT. I have visited the area 3 times. I started borrowing the microfilm with the old newspaper Hoosier State to find information on my various families. It started in 1868. I then decided to abstract information on all the families to help others with their research. I have completed books through 1895 and plan on continuing through 1900. I am trying to add as many obits to entries on Find a Grave as I can. I have various lists for many of the cemeteries in the area. My people settled in Helt Township which includes many cemeteries that I don't have complete lists for. I also abstracted the Wills through 1927. I will check for you if you send me the name. I wish I lived closer, but I live just north of San Francisco.

I just copied a film on early New Jersey Cemetery readings. I am in the process of updating and adding to Find a Grave.

Elizabeth Leicher O'Toole

Just wanted to thank you for helping me match up obituaries to my family. It really goes above and beyond. I hope you'll read what I added to Elizabeth's bio. I am not sure if you remember but we met when you were in Salt Lake at the FHL many years ago and you helped me find many probate records for Patrick O'Toole, Elizabeth's father-in-law. I never would've found it without you, really, there were so many films that I would've been looking forever. Thank you thank you thank you! You will definately have many friends waiting to meet you and thank you in the next life!

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you so much for contacting me about the duplicates! I always check before I make new memorials and don't understand how this happened! I checked on the gal you mentioned who has not responded to you in three years and she was online March 1, 2014 -- so I suppose she is ignoring your request. Let's wait and see what Find A Grave has to say.....I am related to the ones I posted, maybe they will transfer them to me! Again, thank you so much, appreciate your letting me know about this.....

Edit Tab and Corrections/Suggestions
Hello -

I'm not sure if you are aware but there is a new feature for updating memorials. It's utilized by the same edit tab as in the past. If you want to update the birth date, you can click on it, make your suggestion, and it is sent to me automatically. In the new version, this edit is placed on the edits tab on my profile. I can click, accept, decline, etc without having to type in the information. This helps especially when receiving multiple requests.
It's a useful tool. If you have updates to a memorial that fall outside the given fields, you would use the suggestion option and an email would be sent to the initial contributor.
You may want to check your profile page to see if you have updates. I believe it started in December 2013.

Have a nice day.

re: Hutson in Sugar Grove
Carolyn - Thanks much for the parental names. The info caused me to further quick search and add data to the memorials. I have definitely appreciated your assistance over the past five years.

RE: Jesse Hutton
Thanks for the date of death, I'm still trying to get all of my peoples information listed. Unfortunately, sometimes when you submit info it doesn't take it all.

BTW, According to his parents supplemental marriage application, his mothers maiden is McDonald, same as her father.

I'm not sure where the name Hamilton came from. I have all three of her husbands and there is no Hamilton.
