Thanks, Sierra, I bet I met you more than once- but my memory is getting unreliable, so I need to see you at the Local History place sometime, or have coffee at the Broadway Restaurant.
Well I have run into your name, while looking on the internet for Samuel J. Lincolns connection to Hannah J. Lincoln.
I've been researching Kingsbury's, Hopkin's, Turrell's, Wadsworth's, etc., etc.. My neighbor did alot of looking at their family tree, too, as he is a Wright, and has Lincoln ties around Vandalia.
I lived a few blocks from Hazel, in Howell Point (lived there 20 years).Jones Paul Hayden was a Gr-Grandson of Joseph G. Hayden.
I never heard what his "G." stood for, unless he took the middile name from their neighbor, Mr. James Girt. They did give that as a name to their son , James (my Gr-Grandfather), & W.B.'s Brother. James married Ruth Kingsbury.I never knew Joseph had a brother, Plarry.(unusual name,too)
I was b: 1948, too. My Grandfather was the Cass Fo rd dealer, Robert.My Dad was the N iles F Ord dealer, Joe. I'ma Jr. -j osephphillip. Robert T. married Cora L. Hopkins. Dad married Nancy B. O'Boyle.

I went to see Hiram Smith's grave marker the other day.Its one that is hard to read, so badly weathered.On Lamb Rd. , between Calvin Hill St and Bullhand Rd.What they call Shaffer cemetery. Too much snow to read the surronding stones.
I am using a computer to keep track- I have a good collection now. ...phil h.
