Family records indicate my great-great grandmother Julia Estella Hook was born in Columbia City in Whitley Co. on 9-26-1856. She later married Jeremiah Alonzo Cartwright in Geneva, Adams Co., Indiana, on 10-6-1874. They were living in DeKalb Co. in 1890 when my great grandmother Gertrude Cartwright was born in Auburn. Julia Estella Hook died 6-18-1928 in Jacksonville, Fla., where many of her descendants still live.
Her father was Rev. Ignatius Hook, a Methodist minister. Her mother was Charlotte McDonald. I believe they migrated from southwestern Pennsylvania to this part of Indiana shortly before Julia's birth.
Does anyone have a record of this Hook family's stay in Whitley County? Looking for birth records or census records. Possibly church records (for Ignatius' employment) or cemetery records.
