I have several connections with the Getter/ Muck/ Askins lines. I have a theory that they emmigrated to Shelby Co., IN with the Treons adn Coffmans. But this is another story. I have seen the graves of Mary Getter in Ohio and Jacob Muck in Indiana.
My question pertains to Mary Evans who is listed with the Muck household in the 1870 Census. I believer her father died in the Civil War, but I have no information on her mother. Why would this eight year old be living with the Mucks?
