RE: Kathryn Wampler
I mentioned I had also sent the information to a Rita Hagerty - as she maintains/manages Katheryn's parents' memorial pages. I did not get it from her. :) I was merely trying to share the research, on my side, to help supply proof for the linking request.

Katheryn Anderson was the daughter of Enos Butler Anderson, son of Job D. Anderson and Sarah (Robertson or Robinson). Enos Butler was born in Martin County, Indiana. In 1900 Census he is listed as Butler Anderson. Prior to marriage you will find him listed as Enos Anderson. His sister Belle Anderson is mentioned visiting him or his family, on the earlier census reports I found him listed with having a sister named Isabelle.

Enos Butler Anderson married in Knox County in Aug 1885 to Nellie/Nella/Ella Benham (Her first name I found shared all three ways in newspaper articles and on documents). She was born in Indiana. I have not ascertained her parents yet, in 1880 Census she is listed living with S S Weaver family in Knox County.

Katheryn Anderson also had a brother - James Benham Anderson, who was born in 1899. He later married Margaret Geschke, daughter of John R. Geschke. In the newspaper account of their wedding, James Benham Anderson's father's first name was shared. Before 1930 he is often listed as Benham Anderson in news articles and such ... after he marries it goes back and forth between James Benham, James B., or James Anderson with a few smatterings of him listed as Benham, which makes it fun trying to connect his dots.

In the news account of Katheryn and James L Wampler getting their 1911 marriage license, her father was listed as being K B Anderson, which apparently was a typographical error.

Anna Celeveland
Hi Val,

I am not seriously doing family history yet, but hope to get at this in the near future. I see that you maintain a grave site for Anna E Cleveland B-8 Nov 1853 and D-26 Nov 1941.

My father's family tree efforts have his paternal grandmother as Anna Cleveland, married to John Gordon Ranes..son Jesse Calvin Ranes, 1892-1944.

I only have a year of death for Anna Cleveland of 1941. Just wondering if this may be the same Anna Cleveland.

Thanks so much, John E Ranes II

Hammond in Orrville Cem.
In my research I have found that Ella M. Hammond and Mary Alice Bell are the same people. On the stone is Ella which is the nickname of Mary Alice so the initial M. on the stone must stand for Mary. You know how a person's nickname can stick so everyone pretty much forgets the real name. This information is found on Irva & Elmo, neither have stones that we know of, are both children of James & Mary Alice"Ella" Bell Hammond.

There is no space between the e and m in the name Demoss. I searched it before posting but later found you had it spelled the other way. I added the photo to you memorial and deleted mine.

Orrville Cemetery, Knox Co., IN
You have the last name of Claude, John & Rose Carnahan spelled wrong. I just posted those names with stone photos, just look under Carnahan.

Pvt Benjamin Field, Orrville Cem.
I believe the date on his stone is actually his death date as the stone is an issued stone from the government. 1940 was leading up to WW II.

RE: George and Izora Wampler
BTW - my grandfather and father were born in Knox County and lived in Bruceville. My father, after marriage, relocated to central Indiana due to a job assignment. By the time I was born his mother had also moved to the same area after her husband's death - and so did his sister. So I only recall a couple of times, when we headed to southern IN, he went out of his way, to have us pass through Bruceville - as he wanted to show us his childhood home. The last time was back in the late 70s.
