BARTON Family members - thanks Dustin Stonebraker - here is a note from him explaining the picture -- info about Mabel: "This is a Barton family group including a group of--I guess these are all of the inlaws for the Barton family, or mostly. On the far left is Carrie (Glover) Barton who married Frank Barton. The next lady here was a maiden sister to one of the ladies here. Her name is Mabel Fletcher. So she was a maiden lady that lived with John Barton and his wife during their married years. The third person there is Harold Grenard who married Dorothy Barton. Next is Lula (Houser) Barton who married Eddie Barton. And on the far right is Helen (Fletcher) Barton who married John Edwin Barton, also a brother of Eddie Barton's."

BEVER, Joyce Patterson -- her "first" car - 1950 Nash purchased by her father at the sale barn. --I know I am always referring to 'the Evans Farm' north of town that included over a 1000 acres. The Nash is sitting in front of the house we lived in on the Farm, and it sat where that 'Rick Ward Auto Sales' is now. It was 'new' because when our family moved into the 'old house there' it burnt to the ground in Jan-Feb of 1946, we lost everything. There were four houses on the Evans Farm. Thanks so much Joyce - she says, "My dad, Clayton Patterson, and grandfather Ernest Patterson managed the Ben Evans Farm along with two other tenant farmers. All that land that ALL the motels sit on (on both sides of the road), all the housing on the east side of 231 to the Concord road entry to 231, and some of the land extended over to the Concord road when it is heading north across from the Brick yard.

My grandmother, the lady in the dark skirt on the extreme left of the photo holding a child, is Mary Alice Fry Jolley (the child is me, Daniel Eric Jolley). My parents, Carl Ansel and Donna Ruth McClain Jolley, are the young couple above my grandmother standing on each side of my grandfather, Carl Edgar Jolley, who is wearing a dark shirt.

CLIFTON -- John William and wife, Minnie Landis and four of their ten children. Thanks so very much to Kathy Clifton McFate. A note from Kathy: The second (this one) picture is of John W. Clifton and Minnie Landis Clifton and 4 of their children in front of their house in New Market Indiana. The little boy is Landes Beatty Clifton and one of the girls is Beatrice, and Mary - but not sure which ones. As Landis was born in 1902 and looks about 5 here I am guessing the picture was from around 1907? I thought people might enjoy seeing the farmhouse and family. * Note from Karen - according to ages and aged faces, it is likely the taller girl is Mary; next Beatrice and the small girl Myrtle.

CLIFTON -- Also from Kathy McFate -- "This picture is of Mary Francis Davis Landis (also spelled Landes and Landers) on her 100th birthday. She is the woman in the center in the chair. facing the picture , first row on the left is Russel and Grace MacMurry Clifton. The second row in the back from the left is Beatrice Clifton Croy, then Landis Beatty Clifton ( my grandfather) the Thelma Avon Clifton Royer. The next man may be Orville Clifton. The first boy on the left is Ron Royer. I would appreciate any help from other members in identifying the other family members in this picture. They are all Mary Francis Davis Landis 's grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Perhaps someone in New Market may recognize a familiar face?"

COWAN Merle -- when he became 2nd Lt. - one of th e most interesting things about this man is that he was in THREE of our major wars, WWI, WWII, and the Korean war.

COWAN brothers - older picture from John L. Cowan - these are sooo super - thanks sooo very much -- * Finally, the fourth picture shows the four Cowan Brothers at a date uncertain, though I believe the picture may have been taken when they gathered for their mother’s funeral in 1935. They are arranged by age in the picture. Lawrence "Scott" Cowan (1886 - 1961) Walter Harrison Cowan (1887 - 1983) Andrew "Merle" Cowan (1896 - 1963) - in light colored Khaki baggy trousers & John Hubert Cowan (1907 - 1978)

COWAN - *The third picture from John is of his father (Merle) in military garb. His younger brother, John Hubert COWAN (b. 1907 d.1978) is to dad’s immediate right, behind the car. The other two boys on either side are almost certainly my dad’s nephews Byron Olin Cowan (1909-2001) and Walter Marion Cowan (1911-1991). What a wild picture -- some turtle crop!!

COWAN -- OR McCoy -- unknown young woman - at first I thought that was ALL hair, but believe she has a large hat on but still lots of hair - I'm jealous (kbz :) -- anyway please help us find who she is -- AD Willis had his studio in Crawfordsville from 1870-1890 or 91 (although one source says 1898 but it was his wife's for at least the last 8 years)

HARBISON, Ray, Francis and Helen (below) about 1920 at the same home that is pictured in the photo with the three Harbisons - children of Ray & Francis (Bob, Lowell, Helen) - different view of Bob, Lowell and Helen - note: the home is called the Galey Place  - several of you will know it was the Doris (Simpson) & Tom Jeffries place on the Parkersburg Road. Thanks so much to Dave Harbison for these awesome photos :). Here's the explanation from Dave: This house still exists and is occupied by a young family today. It is the first house on the northside as you head east on Parkersburg Road.  I call this the Galey Place; it was owned from early times by the Galey’s. My Grandparents, Raymond and Francis Harbison moved there in the late 1920’s…Dad was born there in 1930. Robert was also born there. My dad lived there with parents until 1954, when Raymond and Francis moved to a family home south of Russellville and my Dad and Mom went to housekeeping in that house. As far as I know, it was rented from Mr. Galey from 1930ish to 1959. Mr. Galey was Principal…???? More likely Superintendent of Waveland Schools ???? My M & D bought our current homestead from Bruce Williams in 1959….and installed the first bathroom in the house before I was born 9/59. At some point (1959, 1960????), Tom and Doris (Simpson) Jefferies purchased the Galey Place with 120 acres (???) of Farm land. My Dad bought the house and farm land fro the Jefferies in 1974. We still own the farm land, but not the house. David Vicki Harbison Pic: Raymond Harbison (1902-1966) V. Frances Harbison (1904 – 1995) Helen Harbison (1926 - At the Galey Home in ?1927?

HERRON, Ada -- probably Ada (I feel sure that this is Ada Patton Herron, wife of William P. Herron mother of at least Fred Herron, a local banker and who lived at this address (however, I could not find a son Ted (is this perhaps Fred instead) for them - might have been a nickname or then again (heaven forbid) I made a genealogical faux pau) - the picture of Fred is from a passport appliation on Jan 4, 1923 (signed by Will Hays, NY Motion pictures, by the way) - he was born Feb 1, 1886 in Crawfordsville and was age 37, planning on going to several European countries for his business and some pleasure) - he was described as 6'; high forehead; blue eyes; medium nose; moustache; round chin; light hair; fair complexion and an oval face.

JAMISON, Jesse & Maude -- Studio photograph circa 1885 of Jessie Jamison and Maude Belle Jamison Kennedy, children of Elizabeth Davis Jamison; grandchildren of Andrew Jackson Davis .and Frances LItten Davis. Both lived in Montgomery County at one time or another. For some unknown reason, they did not include Carrie Jamison Sharp (middle child) in the portrait. FYI -- Diane Kennedy

JAMISON, Mary Ann - I believe the woman in the attached photo could be Mary Ann Jamison, wife of George Corn and mother of Vannie Corn. As you can see, the photo was taken at a Crawfordsville studio in the 1800's. The reason I think this is Mary Ann is because of the physical resemblance between her and an identified photograph of Vannie as a teenager. If somebody can verify this woman's identity, it will be much appreciated. I will send the photograph of Vannie Corn at a later date. Thanks -- Diane

JAMISON, Sam - husband of Elizabeth "Lizzie" Davis - thanks muches to Diane Kennedy for these :) Greatly appreciated Diane !!  Karen has touched this up, looks a lot better.

JOLLEY, Ross -- crew of Santee -- In addition to a photo of Ross Jolley in his Navy uniform, I included a group photo of him and his crewmates on the USS Santee in Dec 1944. You might notice that the USS Santee sank a couple of submarines when it was stationed in the Atlantic during WWII. At the time the photo was taken, the ship was in the Pacific, shortly after the Battle of Leyte Gulf, which is the first time the Japanese started using organized kamikaze attacks. The USS Santee survived a kamikaze attack, as well as a torpedo attack, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf October 25, 1944. above a note from Dan Jolley -- Ross is kneeling in the first row and is the sixth sailor from the left.

Henry was a native of Kentucky and at the age of 18, came to Crawfordsville where he read medicine. On October 7, 1832, he married Polly and they became the parents of at least six children: John, James, Louisa, Ruhamma, Urial and William H (b. about 1852, who also became a doctor in the Linden area.

NYE, Edwin Alonzo -- or -- his father, Joel Watts. There were 5 Nye direct line ministers plus uncles and such along the way who were as well. According to the hair style, the clothes, etc., Tom D. and I are assuming this Rev. Nye is Edwin Alonzo son of Joel Watts Nye (who lived until 1913 so possibly him and he was a preacher, whereas EAN did many things, wrote, newspaper editor ...) Edwin was born in Dearborn County, Indiana on the 24th day of June in 1856 although his tombstone has the year only and it is 1857. He passed away in 1914 on the 23rd day of August. He is buried there in Glendale Cemetery. He married Ada Lucas 1 Sept 1878 and to our knowledge had a son Roy and daughter Maribell. It is not known for sure if he preached in our area. Whoever the Rev. Nye is was a good friend and minister to the Opperman family from our area. -- thanks so much Tom Donovan for helping with this quest :) This picture was originally in the unknowns of Montgomery County. Tom saw it and it was seriously a quest after that. Great fuN!

She is the daughter of Oliver Charles and Mary (Myers) McLoed. Oliver is a son of Oliver and Charlotte (Penn) McLoed. Below the photographer's name, it looks like it says 21, for 1921.

He went all over midwestern Indiana, holding revivals. Posters on light poles, barber windows and other business fronts. Allen said, "He was spectacular - highly emotional." He never appeared on Sundays so he did not offend the local ministers, several of whom would encourage their members to attend. "Great piano and singing plus the first real praise band," Allen ever heard/saw.

TODD, John Starnes -- OLD JOHN STARNES TODD, 10-15-1843–4-11-1929. When I first received the original photo (the FIRST photo, below), of OLD John Starnes Todd, I wasn’t sure if this truly was my Great Grampa, John Starnes Todd. I only had a hunch, from descriptions I had heard from my Uncle Ralph Preston Todd. He knew both John Starnes Todds, as the older one was his grampa, and the younger one was his brother. He described the older J.S. Todd as “an old man with a beard”. He would know, as old J.S. Todd, in his end days, had lived in the same house as Uncle Ralph, on Grant Street in Logansport, across from Mount Hope Cemetery. That was the home of Ralph’s Dad (old J.S. Todd’s son), John Henry Todd. I have also seen old John’s family photo, with his siblings. So, I did finally learn that this is, indeed, old J.S. Todd, the same man in both photos. - Angie Todd - 10-5-2016. Note: John Starnes Todd was born in Monroe County Indiana but lived in Montgomery County Indiana, 1900 in Madison Township.
