Comments & Success Stories
Did you find something very helpful for your research
on this Boone County Genealogy website? Maybe something that
allowed you to break down a brick wall in your research?
Locate an elusive ancestor? Perhaps you "met" a cousin or a
mutual researcher in the Surname Registry that helped you
fill in some big blanks, or surprised to discover a
photograph of your great-great-grandfather whom you've never
seen? Whatever it was ... we'd love to hear about it!
Hundreds, or more likely, thousands of researchers browse
these pages and use the data on this website every year, but
it would be so great to get some feedback now and then and
learn of some of their success stories or comments regarding
the website. Please consider
sending me a note and telling us what it was
that helped you the most, and describe your successful
outcome due to it. I will then gladly add your comments
below (anonymously, if
you prefer) and thank you very much for the feedback!

Thanks for the work you've done ...
"This is my first time at the Boone county site and I
guess my oldest Boone county ancestors are Frederick Lowe
and his wife Patience Grist via Hiram Wolfe
and their daughter Charity Ann Lowe. I was stuck at
Hiram and Charity for a long time and then I stumbled into
your site by a google search and POW it all fell together
with the oral and township histories. Now I'll be searching
your site for the next couple of weeks when I should be
doing real work, or at least during my spare time. As an
heir to a Spanish land grant here in New Mexico, my father's
family line has been known back to 1300s Spain for at least
100 years, but my mother's family from Iowa/Missouri has
been much more difficult to trace. You made my day. And will
make my grandmother's day also. Thanks again."

"Just want to say thank you for
entering the information I sent to you on the Lane's. You
have truly done such a wonderful job on this site, and our
family cannot thank you enough for all you have done. If I
can ever be of help to you just let me know. Thanks again!"

With Patrick H. Sullivan being the first settler in
Boone, Zionsville, I cannot understand why his Bio, or any
other info isn't on this web. I have been working on my
family tree (Sullivan) and when it is complete I will send a
copy to you. Thank you, Edna

Reply from County Coordinator, Teresa
I tried to send you a note via email, but it bounced back to
me. Thank you very much for visiting the Boone County
Genealogy, INGenWeb website, and leaving a comment in the
Guestbook. I'm sorry that you didn't find more information
for Patrick Sullivan on your first visit, but
coincidentally, I have just posted many pages that have been
transcribed from the 1887 edition of, "Early life and times
in Boone County, Indiana," and a
was among them. There also might be other new data for the
Sullivan family, so check the search engine also.
I would be very happy to put more information for Patrick
Sullivan on the website if something is contributed or I'm
able to obtain it. Much of the data I'm able to post on the
site has been submitted by Boone County researchers, or
material I've been able to acquire or purchase myself. I'm a
volunteer host for the website, as are all GenWeb
coordinators, and I do not live in Indiana nor am I
affiliated with the Boone County libraries or genealogical
societies in any way. Some visitors are not aware of this,
and believe I have many sources for Boone County
genealogical data more readily available to me. Our
page might explain the website and the INGenWeb a little
You mentioned on the guestbook you would like to contribute
information from your research, and it would certainly be
very welcome! Contributions of material from our many
visitors and researchers are what keep the website growing!

It has been some time since I have been on the Boone County
site and what a
WONDERFUL site it is now. I truly wish other Indiana
counties would improve their
sites like this one. It would help us that do research so
much. Your hard work is
I have a few things I will send to you at a later date that
you can put on your site.
My Grandfather lived in Lebanon for many years. I remember
the many Sundays we
would drive to Lebanon to spend the day when I was a girl.
Very happy memories.
Thanks again for you hard work."

I love that picture of the cabin, it fits the website
perfectly. Great job with the website. I really appreciate
all your hard work because I have found a lot of information
about my family on it. My uncle Franklin Adrian Muston
married Mary Annabel Riddle who's mother was Lula Adell
Dulin, who's parents were John A. Dulin and Mary A. Carr. I
have Annabel's obit, I will send to you. Will send you more
info as soon as I have the chance. Hope you and your family
have a great Thanksgiving."

My name is Margaret Steup, and I have done some research on
the Dye family in Boone County. It has been a while
since I visited the website, and when I did just recently I
was really impressed with the changes you have made. The
site looks great, and I am excited about all the new
information you have included.
I wanted to make a small correction to the "Find a Grave"
section. In the listings for Zionsville Cemetery, under the
name "Dye" there is a stone with the names of two
children on it. Since these are the two sons of my
great-grandfather, William Washington Dye, I can help
with the names on the tombstone, which are obviously very
difficult to read. One of them, Rolla Dye, is
correct. The other would be "Allie" Dye -- Full name
William Allen Dye (currently he is listed as "Paulie").
He was the first son, who died in infancy. Rolla died, I am
told, during an outbreak of spinal meningitis.
[Note from County Coordinator:
I explained to Margaret that "Find-a-Grave"
is a separate website that we offered a link to and showed
her how she could contact the contributor of that
information to correct the names.]
I would like to contribute more information that I have as
well. That will have to wait until I am a little less busy.
I have photographs also, but it will take me a little time
to puzzle out how to send them to you. What form do you
recommend for the written information? I have used Family
Tree Maker, so I might be able to transfer files from that.
Thank you very much."

"Hi Teresa - I just wanted to thank
you for helping me (inadvertently of course) locate more
information on my family roots. I am discovering that I am
from a very long line of prominent Boone County residents
dating back prior to the Civil War so far!
If you are personally familiar with the Boone County
history, my maiden name is Mary Jane Pock and my
grandparents were the "Pocks" and "Mills" of
A couple of very interesting things to me relate to the
parallels in my past and present history. I have been a
paralegal for over 25 years and learned that my great
grandfather, John A. Pock, was an attorney in Boone
County. I have a fondness for Civil War history and have
recently discovered that John A. Pock and his brother
Andrew (both of Boone County) enlisted together and Andrew
was killed in the Civil War battle of Chickamauga (sp).
Anyway, thanks again for all the information."

"Wow! Teresa--the new website is so awesome. I'm much more
inspired to contribute. I like the design--easier to read,
easier to navigate. Of course, more contributions will mean
more work for you--I appreciate all the hard work that's
gone into making a much better site for us Boone County
PS--thanks for updating my email in the registry.
