Angie Todd has provided the majority of these photos :) THANKS MUCHES
HAMILTON, Mamie Reynolds --this from Angie Todd on 2-26-2013 -- .I am searching for info of a great aunt of mine, Mamie Margie Reynolds Hamilton, who, according to her obit, and the death date recorded on the photo below, appears to have died on June 20, 1924 in Grant Park, Kankakee County, Illinois. Her husband, Edward Hamilton, my great uncle, who MAY have died on Nov. 28, 1948 (not yet proven), is of interest to me, as well. Could you help me to find out more info, especially a cemetery, funeral home, anything for Mamie? One of Mamie Margie's sisters, Flora Etta Reynolds Todd (Mrs. John Henry Todd) , whose handwriting is on the photo, below, was my grandmother. Several years ago, I accidentally cut the date off from the back of the photo (I taped it back on) when I was trimming the damaged border, in case you're wondering about the irregular border on the back of the photo. I further cropped the photo, itself, but only on the online copy, not on the original. I hope this link, below, works for you. It's Mamie's obit, which ran the day after her death, on Saturday, June 21, 1924, under, "DEATHS AND FUNERALS", at the top of page seven, under, "Word of the death of Mrs. Edward Hamilton..." This was in the Pharos-Tribune newspaper, Logansport, the county seat of Cass County, Indiana.
Ihttp://pharostrib.newspaperarchive.com/PdfViewer.aspx?img=84085107&src=browse I never knew Mamie Margie, as I wasn't born till 1947. Note on the back of the above imagine it says, "Margie" died June 20, '24
OLIPHANT, James H & Catherine = Elder James H. Oliphant and wife. The famous Primitive Baptist preacher who married John Henry Todd (3-13-1884--9-2-1958) and Flora Etta Reynolds Todd (8-20-1888--2-10-1960) in Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana, on February 6, 1907. Elder Oliphant's name appears in Flora's Bible Records, as well as in marriage record 16, page 547, Montgomery County Circuit Court. On July 18, 1991, Babara A. Covington, Clerk of the Montgomery Circuit Court sent me all of the marriage records, marriage application included. They correspond with Flora Todd's Bible records. John Henry was a son of John Starnes Todd and his second wife, Mariah Jane Hawkins Todd, from whom I am descended. John Starnes Todd was a son of Thomas Todd and Sallie Helton (Heltonville) Todd. By the way, there were other Oliphants, who also preached. --Angela Frances Todd
