Fountain County "Letters From Home"
"Some researchers with Fountain County Indiana ties have forwarded copies of letters written by members of their families to share with those of you visiting this website. These letters have information about different families in the area, and because they describe graphically some of their experiences, hardships, and celebrations, I feel they are very worthy of posting."
If you have Fountain County Indiana ties, have such letters in your possesion, and are willing to share them in this manner, please let me know via the e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be very happy to add more to this site.
The letters posted have references to the surnames listed, but even if you don't have connections to any of these names, the letters are very interesting to read and enjoy.
