I am looking for information about my ggg-grandmother, Milly Jane SMITH. She was born in Ky and moved to Putnam IN, married John CLODFELTER in 1849, and moved to Mercer, Co. in 1860. I believe it could have been Washington Twp, then the next year they were in Millgrove Twp. Milly stayed in that area til she died in 1906. I believe she could have also been in Modena Twp when she married her 2nd husband ,John "Jackie" VANDERPOOL, after her first husband died. She had 5 more kids with VANDERPOOL, the youngest being only 7 when he died, leaving Milly (age 50) with several young children. I am desperately trying to find Milly's parents and siblings. Please, if anyone knows anything about her, I'd love to have the information. Thanks.
