Lorenzo D. Gordon listed in Terre Haute 1870 Census I believe to be my wife's gggrandfather. He's also in the Charleston, NY (Mongomery) Census. Same occupation and year of birth. Trying to find out who his parents were. 1880 Census lists him married to Lizzie Carter and a 5 m old child Elbert. If known by Lizzie parents would be on Death Certificate. Elbert named a son Chester. Lorenzo had a Chester in NY.

Hi, I am trying to find out what the names of the Catholic churches in existence in Terra Haute in the 1850s were. My Bryon great-grandparents had a child while they were living there and I am trying to find out how I can get a copy of this information. I am hoping that it will tell where they were married. Supposedly, they were both born in Ireland, and started out west from Virginia. Their eldest son, John, is show as having been born in Indiana in 1852. So, I'm on the hunt.

Comments:
Leland Keneth Rust, born in IN (Evasville?) c. 1866, changed his last name to Monroe sometime between 1885 (after his mother, Mary E. Nall Rust, died in Evansville, and 1895. I'm trying to pinpoint when and where he changed his name, and why, if possible. His father was William H. Rust, a riverboat captain, one vessel being the "Bowling Green." Lee Monroe married Fannie Amanda Church from Sullivan County IN on Aug 5 1895, and on Christmas day, my grandfather, Leland Fuller Monroe, was born, some say in Turesela IN. I don't think that is accurate. Lee Monroe (Rust) lived in Evansville, Vigo county, Indianapolis IN, that I know of. He was in Marion Co., and I'm not sure about Union Co., but quite possible. Can you steer me to a place where I could find name change records for those areas or in In? I live in Oregon, but have been thinking seriously of coming to Indiana to try to solve this puzzle. Thank you.

Comments:
My grandfather was William Burton (Bert) Liston, and married Rosetta (Rosa) May Price in 1909. My dad Lester L. Liston was born on Nov. 3, 1909, in Sullivan, IN. They had a second child Irene who may have been born in 1913. Bert died in June 1913, according to info you sent me on January 24, 2009. Rosa married James Barekman in 1914, and they had two children, Robert born Dec 24, 1915, and Mary E. who may have been born in 1917. In 1918, James was killed in a mine accident. Rosa left the children with family and disappeared. Lester and Robert lived into the 1990s, but it is believed that Irene and Mary died from influenza at early ages. I am trying confirm Robert, Irene and Mary's births, what happen to Rosa and James' death. If there are any Listons, Prices, Barekmans or anybody that can help, that would be appreciated. Bob

I'm very interested in finding what every family is left if any from my mother history. It looks like I could have several half brothers and sisters out ther some where. I know she had 8 brother and they have all passed away. I don't know if they had any children or not.

I am connected to Vigo County by both my father's SHULL and my mother's ECKARD families.

My ggg-grandparents Joseph F. and Sarah Shull settled in Nevins Twp. in 1830's and my gg-granddad Henry Eckard was born in Terre Haute in 1855.

Joseph and Sarah SHULL died (late 1840's)and are buried in Vigo County.
It would "make my day" to find exactly where they are buried.
There were a number of SHULLs in Vigo County in the 1840's and later as well as in Clay County.

This is a very good site...keep up the good work.

I can't find any info that says husband Phillip was in the Civil War. I'll help anyone with info on this end if I can.

Great site! I have found a lot of good information on this site. I am looking for information on Logan Lowell Miller and Mildred Stark. Although Logan was married he and Mildred had a child, Herbert Paul Miller, in Terre Haute in 1920. Herbert is my husband's birth father. Logan and Mildred were in and around Vigo and Sullivan County. Mildred's parents were Frank Stark and Christy Maring from Clark County, Illinois. Mildred died in 1942 and Logan was dead before then. Don't know exactly when. If anyone has information to share, I would certainly appreciate it. Thanks for your help.

First, I would like to compliment whoever maintains this site for the excellent job they are doing. I wish all the county sites were this comprehensive. GREAT JOB!

I am looking for ANY info on my father, Claude E. Smith, b.1903 in CA.; son of David A. Smith of Indiana and Jessie Lane. Claude married my mother, Charlotte Fields of Terre Haute in 1940. They divorced a few years later. Reportedly Claude was married previously and had other children. Since "Smith" is such an uncommon name, I cannot imagine why I have hit so many brick walls in trying to trace him or his lineage. Does ANYONE know of this man in their Terre Haute family searching? I don't know anything about him except his parents names & his birthdate, if I can rely on the info on his marriage application. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks.

My sister and two brothers (one is my twin) are the great, great, great, grandchildren of Harrison Denny, who settled in Otter Creek township shortly after serving in the War of 1812. The "old Denny home" which was located just West of Roselawn Cemetery, was demolished last year. The "old family cemetery" is located at about 2000 Hassleburger Rd. At one time our family farmed close to 800 acres. I have some documented family history via a book that my father ( Robert Harrison Denny ) left ( History of Vigo county circa 1890 )I'm interested if any other family history exsists; if so, I'd be greatful if someboby would share any info with me.

Thanks;

I don't know what URL means, either. I found some information on database #2214100 that might be pertinent. I think my grandfather and his line need to be added to this, but I'm not sure. If anyone has any information regarding this, I would very much appreciate it. Please email me with info; please designate "Reeves Family History" in subject line, so I won't think it is junk mail. If anyone can go back in history to this line, I would be much appreciative of that, also.

It took me several hours to get to this page/site in my search for my family history as I was clueless where to start. But it looks like it was worth the wait; thanks!!

My dad was born and raised at Coal Bluff. His parents were William Tapscott ROWE & Eathel BIGGS. He had gone to Purdue for I think 1 1/2 years to become a pharmacist. However, he dropped out to marry a woman last name VanHook. Later he married my mother June English. I'm trying to locate the any schools he may have attended. I've not had any luck in finding him anywhere. Also, his grandfather's name was Thomas C. Rowe he was a doctor/pharmacist his-self. Doc Rowe came to Vigo Co, Coal Bluff with his family ca. 1887 from Cornwall England. Any information on any of the Rowes or Biggs in that area please contact me. I will gladly share my BIGGS information. Thank you in advance, and God speed.

This is a strange one. Either his first name is Mitchell or could be his last name, just know he knew Rosalene Layer, Lydick around that time. My Grandfather Walter Layer died in March 1955 and my sister was born in April of 1955. Need any information. Very important , this person is possibly my sisters father(this is no joke) Please help us find this person. Grandmother's name Dorothy Layer, lived at 2817 Harding Ave. Terre Haute.. Anything will help,even if you just knew the family at that time. My Grandfathers death made front page news, he killed himself..Would like to hear from anyone who knew my mother or the family during those years. Also contact Driskowhyme@aol.com This is my sisters e-mail, she lives in T>H>

I am searching for the place where my biological grandfather, Sephus Earl Shelburne died. It may have been in Terre Haute or somewhere in Missouri on Nov. 29, 1927. His obituary was published in the Terre Haute Tribune. My grandmother, Lilly Martin, who had divorced Sephus in 1913 was living in Terre Haute when he died. I would very much like to see a copy of his obituary. It listed him as Sebhus E. Shelburn.

Comments:
According to family lore, the McNiel/McNeil family, along with several other families crossed the Cumberland Gap from the Carolinas to ultimately settle in the Indian Territory (Indiana) during the late 1700's. The family lived in Fontanet Twp for many years. They were coal miners, I believe. Henry and Nancy's family consisted of Ernest, Edith, Forest, Kenneth,and Dorothy. For many years they held a reunion during the Fontanet Bean Dinner weekend so that they could meet with old friends. Forest was the only one to remain in Vigo County. He taught at Fontanet and later was the principal there. He passed in 1993. I am interested in information about his family prior to his parents.

My Grandmother, Maybelle Pollard Lachney, died after giving birth to my dad, John. Her father was John Wiley Pollard (Parke County)& we think her mother was Mary Rose..not sure of her last name. She had one sister, Evelyn Dyson.

I would appreciate any information I could get on my family. You can email me at the above address.

I am looking for information on David & Elizabeth Anderson and family who moved to Nevins TWP, IN between 1838-9 rom North Carolina. David was born about 1807 and can be found in the 1840 Census, Nevins TWP as a 'free colored' farmer, age 24-35 yrs. His household consisted of 3 male children age 9 yrs and under; 3 female children age 9 yrs and under and his wife, Elizabeth (Betsy), age 24-35 yrs. He and his family are also found in the 1860 Nevins TWP Census (p 257) and the 1860 Nevins TWP Census. I could not find David in the 1870 Census but I did find his wife, Elizabeth, age 63 on p 10 of the census living in the same place (I think). I am trying to find out when they died and what happened to the their property. One of the male children listed in the 1840 & 1850 Census was my great-great grandfather, Jordan Anderson who was born in Buncombe NC 05/24/1832. Jordan is found in the 1860 Census in his own household (p 170) and served in the Civil War in the Indiana USCT 28th Inf. He married Angeline Scott, the daughter of Livius C. Scott and Martha Chavis who resided in Vigo County, IN in Vigo County IN on 12/03/1857.

This site has been very helpful. We are focusing on Ralph R. and William Conover. These brothers were born in New Jersey. They worked in Terre Haute , as early as 1840 for Ralph R.,as brick and stone masons as did many of the descendants and the men in the allied families. A wish for the site is more church records, membership lists, baptism records, etc., for the early Baptist and Methodist congregations.
