I was able to read parts of the Dungan book that helped with the past genealogy of Zelah's parents. I read part of another book but can't recall if it was the Jeremy Clarke book or not.
I followed Zelah and family to Kansas but I haven't good dates for John & Susannah Crandle and their children. Have you been successful in finding full dates for John, Susannah, & children? Thank you for Ethel's surname. I had her as Ethel Ruth but hadn't found a surname for her yet. I followed Donald but I never found a marriage for him but figured that might have been due to privacy issues in Donald's case. I have his birth date and partial death date from the SSDI but that's all.
I need to make a trip to Indiana to some research but haven't made it yet. Any suggestions as to the best place to look for birth and death records for them? My husband is transferred quite often and right now we live in Michigan. Probably the closest we've ever been to Indiana. Although I still need dates for John & Susannah, along with their son John and wife Rose, I can tell you a little more about John and Rose's children, if you're interested. My mother-in-law was named after her grandmother Rose.
