"Riley Shields" I am looking for information on Sally Pierce and her husband. She was a member of the Brethren Church for 50 years, She was born approximately in 1783. She joined the church in 1810. She died in Jennings county, Indiana; May 1860. Her son William B. is my great-great grandfather. William's first wife was Mary Froelich. I thought perhaps this German name was located In Pennsylvania and that Sally's offspring may have come here. She was born in Vermont and William B. was born in New Hampshire in 1825 when she was about 41 years. I would appreciate any information on this. Thank you. Sharon

   John M. Blankenship I have been trying to determine the parentage of an ancestor whose birthplace is listed as Indiana in 1880 and 1900 census entries for Nebraska. I was able to find many Blankenships in Jennings County in the Indiana Marriages Before 1850 database and speculate that the unnamed ancestor may have been called John or James-- both names persist in our family-- but I could be wrong. The 1900 census indicates that James William Blankenship, my third great-grandfather, was born in 1837 in Indiana to parents who were born in Virginia (father) and Indiana (mother). If you could share any information from the 1840 census info for your county I would be forever grateful.


 "L. Doyle McCaslin" <>
I found in Jennings County that my grandfather, James McCaslin, left Indiana
sometime in the early 1870s for Arkansas. In Ft. Wayne, I found that he
had a different wife who, as it turns out, died before he
married my grandmother, Mariah Orrill. My research there and in Arkansas
did not advance me beyond James. I am finding the lack of a middle initial
a real handicap. In the Garland County, Arkansas "Record", an annual
publication of that county's Historical Society, his name is listed at least
on one occasion as James Wm. I cannot find any information anywhere that
authenticates that middle name, however. Yet someone in Garland County,
Ark. found the same information about his first wife, and, for that matter,
his first daughter dying young in Indiana. A little book entiled "The
McCaslin Finder", published privately by a woman in Concord, California and
housed in the Allen County Public Library, Ft. Wayne, may be the source of
that "Wm" but I saw nothing in that book that promises certainty. As a
matter of fact, although I did run across the name James W. several times, I
did not see any of these names associated very closely with this McCaslin;
yet again, one of Dad's uncles, a son of James, was named James W. All help
