I am interested in Willis of Haddon Township, Sullivan Co. Indiana.Connections to Portwoods, Davidsons, and Hunter in or near Hackett Cemetery.
The purpose of the website at http://www.geocities.com/courthouse_firehttp://www.geocities.com/courthouse_fire is to encourage desendents of residents of Sullivan County, Indiana to get FREE DNA testing to compensate for records lost in the courthouse fire of 1850. DNA can help discover family connections that were lost by destroyed records.
The emphasis is on the Portwood and related families but all others are welcome to participate in the project. Subject to limitations.
The site at http://www.geocities.com/courthouse_firehttp://www.geocities.com/courthouse_fire already contains lots of data on Sullivan Co., Indiana genealogy, especially Davidson, Hunter, Halloway, Menifee, Booker, Wooden and people buried in the Hackett Cemetery,Davidson Cemetery, and McCammon Cemetery.
