My great great grandfather was Anderson W Ike who I think was born in July of 1833 around the state line of Indiana and Illinois near Vigo County, IN or Edgar County, IL. My father's cousin Robert C. Ike said that Anderson's parents were Paul Ike and Louisa Southard, but his only source for the information was with stories from his grandmother Amanda Cox Ike. She was the wife of my great grandfather William Anderson Ike. Anderson W. Ike died in June 1901 and is buried in Shirley Cemetery in Indiana near the state line.
Do you have another source to link Paul and Louisa Ike to Anderson W. Ike? I have found the Ike surname in Pennsylvania and Ohio Census records. Can you link to any of these people to the Ike surnames in Indiana and Illinois?
