My great-grandfather, Joseph Pelts (Spelts) was born in IN.I think I've found part of his family in Floyd Co. IN in 1850 census.My Joseph Pelts probably would have been in Dunklin Co. MO, where he spent his adult life, by then. The surname seems to vary from Pelts to Spelts and so on, depending on where one finds it.I found it spelled both ways in a Greene Co. IN document.
If I can have your "land" address, I can send you some FGS's and other info.I don't put everything on the 'net' since a lot of it cannot be proved.
