Jo Herring sent the following information to me on Sept. 3, 2010.

Levi O. Day was a son of Ackley Day and Sarah Oxley. (he was my 3rd great granduncle)

Levi and his wife Melvina Winn adopted the sons, George and Henry, of his uncle, Truman Day Jr. Levi and Melvina were granted guardianship in 1858 after both parents died. I've never been able to find where Ackley Day is buried, he died about 1851 in Audrain county. Wish I could find him, he was my 4th great grandfather.
