Surnames: ADAMSON, FITCH, HEDRICK, WARD
Am searching to find what happened to two Wayne Co. families.
Martha A. ADAMSON m. 1867 to James M. WARD. They are
listed in the Wayne Co. 1870 census with a son William M., age 2.
The 1880 Wayne Co. census does not list James and Martha, but William WARD
is listed with Martha's half-sister's family: Francis and Theresa HEDRICK
FITCH. William WARD, age 12, is listed as their ward.
Would like to learn what happened to all of these families, including William
M. WARD. Any help, leads, etc. appreciated. Will be
happy to share info.

(Q85) 17 Jul 1997 - Regina McCreary
Surnames: McCREARY, STOLTZ-STOLTZE
I am looking for the parents of my great grandfather. His name
was Samuel Curtis McCREARY. He was b. Oct 3, 1855 somewhere
near Barnhill or Fairfield. As far as anyone knows he was orphaned
when he was around age ten. His mother had died some years earlier.
Noone knows the names of his parents, and I've been unable to find any
record of his existence in IL. He and his wife Margaret STOLTZ(E?)
(reportedly his second, though again no evidence) and their 8 children
left IL for Canada in 1917 or so. There are also supposed to have
been two daughters by first marriage, they would have been b. bef 1892.
Hope anyone can help.

Surnames: CHANDLER, PATTERSON
I am looking for info. about John Finley PATTERSON. He lived in the Fairfield area, in the mid to late 1800s.

Additional info. - John Finley PATTERSON served in the 49th IN
Infantry, Co. A. He was mustered in at DuBois Co., IN in 1861, and
he served until Nov 1865. He d. Mar 22, 1908, and is buried at the
Bethel or "Old Brushy" cemetery. His son Alphonzo (my great grandfather)
was b. 1866. His wife was Martha CHANDLER (b. 1866, but I
don't know where she came from either). My Grandfather William PATTERSON
