Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started several years ago looking for information on my father's grandparents, which led me to all of the other families in my family tree. I now have volumes of information and files of pictures, and lots of books! Someone told me years ago that this hobby would become additive, which it has, but so rewarding. I love finding a new piece to the puzzle. After a trip in 2009 to do research in Washington DC, on family members pension records from the Civil War and research at the DAR Library, for the Revolutinary War, I decided I would look for all of the men who fought in the Civil War with my great, great grandfather (100th Indiana Infantry, Company C, from LaGrange Co., Indiana) I wanted to know who they were and who their families were. So I started compiling info on each of these men. NEWS- (April 2012) I just finished my book and I have several copies available if anyone wants one. It is The Men of the 100th Indiana Infantry, Company C. (I am now compiling information on Company B of the 100th Indiana Infantry). The main families I work on are Rupert, Dye, Lancaster, Walda, Reinking, Holsinger, Oliver. I am always happy to answer questions about any of these families and others too.

Catherine Haverstick Bugh memorial # 73779924
When I sent two edits, there wasn't a field to explain them, so I'll do so here. Catherine Haverstick wife of Peter Bugh, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania , her father Johann Michael Haverstick(1718 Switzerland-1793 Conestoga, Lancaster, Pa) having immigrated Nov 1741 aboard the Europa and married Maria Salome (or Psalma) Rauscher Aug 4 1743 in Trinity Lutheran Church, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.(she was born in France and immigrated with her parents in 1733).

Not sure how best this is handled, but here's what I've seen:

I came across Memorial 43482739 as a hint from Ancestry. I think this is the person I was looking for, but I think there are elements of error in Jeremiah, Mary, and the calculated son William Jefferson's memorials here on Find A Grave. I'm sending notes to all three of you who have responsibility for these memorials.

The dates for Jeremiah Conrad match the dates for the Jeremiah that I am researching, but I have no evidence that he was ever in Kentucky.

He was married to Mary Gates in Indiana (there is an Indiana marriage record, LaGrange County), not Mary Marcum in Kentucky.

The Jeremiah Conrad buried in LaGrange, Indiana never, as far as I can tell, had a son named William Jefferson Conrad. There is no William Jefferson that shows up in LaGrange County censuses with Jeremiah and Mary's family (they had at least 4 children)

Suggestions on how we review this? I haven't gotten to the point where I've confirmed a middle name for my Jeremiah Conrad, but I believe there was a different Jeremiah Franklin Conrad from Kentucky. I think these are two different people.

RE: Amanda Mallory
Hi Cheri,

Sorry about the delayed response. This would be the same Amanda, I may have been multi-tasking and messed up on the dates. Sometimes my brain and fingers operate independently from each other. :)

I don't have the info accessible at the moment, so I have updated the dates to match the headstone, and will confirm when I get back to the laptop with the info.

Thanks for bringing to my attention.

RE: Mary Lancaster
The death certificate on Ancestry has 1920. It's pretty clear and 1920 is on that form multiple times. Did the stone get changed or added later? I can send you a copy of certificate if you like. Mike

RE: Levi and Catharine Bonebrake
I was looking for my Levi Bonebrake obituary when I found yours. Have you looked at Daniel Beinbrech's stone translation? Sorry it took so long to share it. Have a great summer Cheri.

This is from Bob Jr.
I looked up an old yearbook. And on page 25 was a picture of your mom.
Grandpa and grandma liveed in Lagrange for years. They owned and operated the Western Auto store. It was the second door south of the court house. I spent many a summer up there. It's funny people say who do I take after, I say Grandpa. I talk just like him and I don't know a stranger.

Grandma was an Overmyer. If you ever need info. on an overmyer I have over 2200 names. She was part German. Grandpa was part Indian.

Have a great day. Bob Thomas Jr.
