Sometime in 1870-71 the five eldest sons of Joshua and Elizabeth (McCutheon) STOCKS of Loudoun Co., VA cameto Indiana to find work.One went to White CO. and to Henry Co. (although his widow came to Logansport after he died) but the other three were in Logansport through 1900.These three all worked for the railroad at one time or another.I am having some difficulty find any trace of one family.
