Patricia Fuller
SURNAME: POLITE / BROWN
Looking for information on a Henrietta Brown POLITE who died in Elkhart on November 16, 1919. She was married to Joseph Polite who preceded her in death in 1912. It is my understanding they were residents of Toledo Ohio for 40 years following the end of the Civil War. Although she died in Elkart she was buried in Toledo Ohio. I believe she moved to Elkart after her husband died. I am looking for any family connections that would have brought her to Elkhart. Joseph and Henrietta were from Michigan and married in Coldwater in 1865. A book on Michigan soldiers and sailors in the Civil War indicated he lived in Elkhart for a time after the Civil War. Two children Emery and Lydia(Ida) preceded them in death, one adopted daughter named Estelle survived them.
