My grandfather was Louis Dale Poorman b. 2-22-1904, d. 12-24-1969 - all we know about him (he died when I was 5) is that he married my grandmother (Emma Irene Hartman), who was living in Cullom, IL. Louis was of French descent & of Indian descent, but I don't know what tribe. Their son Dale Edward is my father.
Louis' father was Washington Franklin Poorman (known as W.F.) b. 3-27-1856, d. 1-31-1933. His mother was Susan Merillat, b. 12-18-1864, d. 1-20-1932. The family homestead still stands in rural Archbold, although it was recently donated to Louis' sister Hazel's church when she died.
Does anyone have any information on these names? I would appreciate any help at all!
