Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Carl Simms. I live in Tippecanoe County, IN. As I have gotten older I have learned to appreciate the efforts of others to help us learn about our History.
My Family on my Father's side came to Indiana in the 1820's and the same for my Mother's side.
Family names include Blackford,Mahan,Johnson, Hybarger, Etter, Murphy, Robison, Cranford, Hulin, Silvey, Vester,Knox, McDonald, Rader and many

I am trying to record/correct information about the Robison-Shaw Family reunion relatives found on Find--Grave. The Robison Reunion has met the 2nd Sunday in Sept. every year since 1906 in the Boone County, Lebanon, IN area. I try to answer/correct mis-info because family history is not always based on facts and some members of FAG evidently are too busy to transfer or correct/add recently discovered info - for what-ever reasons. Please contact me about questions/concerns about what I post.............thanks

What Raders are in your line? We have a Henrietta Rader (1828-1853) daughter of Philip Rader (1784-1853) & Elizabeth Sidden in my husband's line. Henrietta married Joseph Fenters, who was a brother to my husband's Ghere-grandfather.

Just read your profile & saw you were in Tippecanoe County. So am I. I know Simms is a fairly common name but by chance are you related to Judy Simms?

RE: Charles Albert Blackford
My husband is related by marriage. Charles' daughter, Ruth, was married to Charles "Jay" Fenters, whose father, Charles, was a brother to my husband's grandfather. Therefore, Ruth was the wife of my husband's first cousin 1x removed. Do you have any idea if the parents are Charles & Emma with children or if it could be John & Elizabeth with Charles as one of the children? Didn't know if perhaps there was a date on it that might help identify who is in the photo. Don't where you live, but are you familiar with the Montgomery County, IN gen web ste. Karen Zack, who coordinates the site has a place on the site for photos. You might consider sending it to her & have her ask the readers if anyone knows who is in the photo. She has a lot of local readers & those who used to part of Waynetown area but have moved away. I can give you her email address if interested. Just let me know. Thanks!

You added a photo to his memorial in Waynetown Masonic Cemetery. Can you tell me the names of everyone in the photo L-R? Thanks!

RE: Isaac Smithson Cranford
Hi Carl Thank you. He would appreciate if you took a look through the papers. His mom Bettie was one of the 4 children of Elgie that were taken to the orphanage by their father after Elgie died.

Isaac Smithson Cranford
Hi. My friend Steve in Delphi has been trying to find the grave of his grandmother Elgie Mary Cranford Coons ( 4 May 1902 - 3 Sep 1933 ). She is the Daughter of Isaac Cranford. Her death certificate says she was buried at Robison Cemetery. I was wondering if you had any information.

RE: Evelan B Brown Etter
No relation. When my husband and I visit an out-of-town cemetery we photograph the entire cemetery and post to find-a-grave as time permits. Waynetown has so many family members buried there that it was a very large project, but so worth the time.

Well, that was easy. Here is her email:
She is interested in Sibby McDonald and husband George.

I submitted your contact info to her months ago. I gather she has not contacted you. At this point since she is not part of my own research, I'm not sure I can find her info again. If I do, I will send it along to you.
Cheers! Maureen
