Elaine, I've looked through all of the names posted by you and Lora and none of them are my Addison's, but I can't help but think mine are related somehow.I start with my great, great grandmother, Osie F. Addison, who was a daughter of Levi Addison, son of Ranson Addison.Ranson was born in North Carolina abt. 1805 and came to Henry or Rush Co.His other children were Thomas Addison, b. March 25, 1825 in Ohio or North Carolina, d. March 26, 1905 in Kokomo, Howard Co., IN, (married Rachel Hunt) and Samuel Addison, b. 1835. I know that Osie lived south of the Carthage area, perhaps in a cabin they called "Little Egypt" (my grandfather was born in this cabin).If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know.
I'm also curious about the Bentley family.Charles E. Bentley married to Mary Jones are my 4th great grandparents.I only know that they were married March 19, 1830 in Vigo Co., IN.
I live in Morristown and most of my family is buried in Asbury.Perhaps we have other ancestors in common?
Thanks for any help you may be able to give! Melissa
