I remember there was a Schlichte Market in Connersville for years and years. I can't remember if it was on 8th or 9th Street. It was there when I was growing up. My aunt would send me for bread and give me a penny for candy. That was about 1947 and later. I moved from Connersville in 1956 to CA, but I believe the store was still there when I went back to visit in 1960. Have you wrote the courthouse asking for land records or probate. Also ask for death certificate.
