Oh my gosh, you are a GENIUS! I am positive that Theresa is the right one. I need to
find proof, of course, but instead of a needle in a haystack, I have an actual year or two
and a place to check for a marriage cert. or an obituary or something.
I'm pretty sure you also found Mary, but that will take some investigation -- the
surnames are unreadable on my desktop, too.
I don't understand how you were able to find them. I seriously checked every Theresa
in the state of Iowa born in Indiana around the DOB I had and whose parents were born in
Indiana/Kentucky. I looked and looked and did not see this one!
For now I am going to plug them in as fact and go on -- maybe I can find an obit for one
of the sons that will mention "son of". Or an SSDI death date and contact the
county for a death cert. There will be a way. Even with a last name I can't spell for
I can not tell you how much I appreciate this, Faith... I was seriously thinking the whole
family had died of scarlet fever and I was ready to write them off!
This is just AWESOME! Thank you, thank you!!!!
