I hope I have not written to you before! I am searching for birth records for my grandfather, Edwin Lyndon MAY. His parents, Edwin Johnson May and Ada Scofield May show up in the 1870 census in Whitestown (he's listed as Edward J.) with daughter Jennie, born Feb 1870. She evidently died at some point before 1900. My grandfather's sister, Maude, was born in Whitestown, about 1871, and my grandfather, about 1875, we believe. I haven't been able to find any of their births on IN records. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much, Sharon Boltz, San Diego.

Hello! I have a photo of an ancestress that I cannot place in the family tree. Does anyone have a connection to a Polyann Parks/Parke that was in Thornton, Boone co., IN around the 1850's to 1860's? In this picture I have she looks to be in her 20's or early 30's. I found the photo in an album of other Parks family members who lived in Montgomery county, IN and who then moved to Tama county, IA. I have found no trace of her in connection to any of my other Parke/Parks people but the photo is titled "Great Aunt Polyann Parks". The back of the picture says it was taken in at "Clark's Photograph and Dental Rooms" in Thornton, IN. Help! --

I am hoping to find out the names of my great grandfather's parents/siblings and also the name of the family that my great grandmother stayed with during the time that my great grandfather was away for 3 years serving in the Civil War. Her mother had died when she was a toddler and her father when she was 11 years old, so it's thought that she may have come to IN from KY to live with family after her father's death. However, I don't know who that family might have been. So hopefully if I can find out who she was staying with while he was gone to war, I might be able to unravel some more of this mystery. Below are the particulars: At the age of 14, Mary Jane CHASTAIN, b. 1848 in Henry Co., KY, was married to William Perry HOBSON, b. 1841 in Marion Co., IN, at Burgetts Corner, Clinton Co, IN by John W. Bacon, Justice of the Peace, on 12 Aug 1862. He reenlisted as a Corporal in the Union Army 2 days later (Co. H of 86th Reg't Ind. Vols. commanded by Cpt. Rufus D. Pettit. He would later be transferred to Co. F, 12th Vet. Res. Corp and be discharged in Washington, D.C. on 26 June 1865.) During a hospital stay in April 1865, his records show his wife's post office address as being Zionsville, Boone Co., IN. After the war, on one of his Pension Application forms, they are shown as living on a farm in Soircleville, Clinton Co., IN. in Sept. 1878. They moved to Pratt, Pratt Co., KS in 1882 or 1884.
