Cyrus PIERCE will made out 12-6-1878; probated 17 Apr 1879 in Kos. Co. Owned property: Section 15, Township 31, North and Range 4 East. I believe that is Franklin township. I would like to find his burial place and obituarary. I visited the Kos. Co. Historical Society a few years ago and the only evidence I could find of Cyrus was his will and probation of the will. The family is listed in the 1850 Kos. Co. census. Cyrus was listed as a carpenter. If he lived in the community for 20 some years there are surely some references to him. Any suggestions you might have for tracking this family would be much appreciated.

Does any kind soul out there happen to have any old photos of the HUFFMAN line? Photos of Thomas Hendrick HUFFMAN? His 5-wives: Jessie STAFFORD, Opal HARTSOCK, Bea ?, Etta Mae MARKS, or Roxie HOLLAND? Any of his children: Arthur, Eugene, Thomas Jr., Forest Dell, or James Thomas? Did the Schools in the Sidney, Indiana area take students pictures between 1925 and 19336? Does anyone see a "Thomas "Tommy" HUFFMAN in a school picture? If so, please contact me. With my thanks.

My G.Great grandmother was Elizabeth GOSHERT/GUSHART from Prairie Twp. in this Co. Her father was George GUSHART, spelled this way in the 1850 census. He was 34 yrs.old. wifes name was Susan, age 31. George was a farmer. Elizabeth's siblings were: Marion age 9, Geo. age 8, Jasper age 4 and Henry, age 1. My interest in this family is the fact that Elizabeth married my G.Grandpa, Andrew Jackson JUDY from Page Co. VA. They are both buried in Liberty Cem. in Mound City Missouri. I have the JUDY History back to Switzerland, but I am as interested in the women as I am in the "Family Name". If any one could help me find out about the GOSHERT/GUSHART family history, I would be so thankful. I am retired a few yrs early from my job to take care of my paraplegic husband, and were both keeping busy searching and trying to help if we can. Thank you in advance. Carol and Dave.

Seeking information from the descendants of the ALEXANDERs of Kosciusko Co.!

George M. (W.?) ALEXANDER. George ALEXANDER is buried in Palestine Cemetery, Kosciusko Co., IN, with the following information on his headstone (according to Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records, Vol. V): George M. 1867-1948 (arrows on the stone point to his 2 wives, one buried on each side of him) Inez, wife of George, died 16 Sept.1902, age 34-6-26 Bertha 1871-1933

In the same row, buried right before the ALEXANDER plot are William H. EILER and his wife Ellen. Ellen EILER's maiden name was ALSPAW (ALSPAUGH), born in Henry Co., IN 1837, she was 1st married to James R. ALEXANDER, also of Henry Co. James and Ellen ALEXANDER are recorded in the 1860 census of Henry Co., IN, residing in the household are the following:

ALEXANDER, James, 23, born in IN
ALEXANDER, Ellen, 22, born in IN
ALEXANDER, Leonadus, 2, born in IN
ALEXANDER, William, 4, born in IN
James ALEXANDER enlisted in the military during the Civil War and died at the battle of Cedar Creek, VA. In the obituary of Ellen (ALSPAUGH/ALEXANDER) EILER, 2 surviving sons are listed (besides her children from her 2nd marriage), Leonadus and a G.W. ALEXANDER. Leonadus ALEXANDER is my line and I have been trying to find ANY clue about the mysterious G.W. ALEXANDER! Is the George M. (W.) ALEXANDER buried after Ellen EILER ALSPAUGH/ALEXANDER) that missing son? Binnie's Records of Palestine Cem. show George's birth as 1867, which would make my assumption WAY off, but is it wrong? The other possibility is also buried in Palestine Cem.: Gilbert W. ALEXANDER 1860-1912 (could the information I have on the 1860 Henry Co. census be incorrect and the William listed was 4 months, not 4 years?). Buried with him are a couple of children and his wife Sarah C. WARREN, died 08/04/1891, age 30-01-06.
