Forgive me for taking so long to reply.I first heard of your book when on a trip to Sheridan, Indiana last summer.The President of the Sheridan Historical Society pulled out you book to help me with some Kercheval questions!!
My grandmother is Letha Bel Kercheval Kester.I have a copy of her obit with the "B." and other documentation that her middle name was Bel.Rebecca was her stepmother, and Orpha died in 6 Oct 1894, with Letha being born 14 Jul 1887.Also, I have some wonderful old photos of Rebecca with Frank V. and the grandchildren.Also, one of Letha as a child.
We could chat about anything else you might need.Just use my email listed on my Genealogy.com profile to send me a note with your phone number (out of public view) and I'd be so happy to call you sometime.
I would love to get an autographed copy of your Kercheval book, if you don't mind.
