Hello, I have some info on Marion Whitesell. He is my 2nd great grandfather. I have gotten some of this info from my grandfathers bible. Marion was born August 26, 1842 in Monroe Co., INHe married Mary Peters December 22, 1864. He died December 8, 1915 and is buried in Union cememtary in Morgan Co., Indiana. Marion's parents are Peter Whitesell and Elizabeth Akins or Eakins. (Not sure of spell) Marion and Mary had 7 children: Emmie Jane whom died at one month old, John Henry whom married Mary Gertrude Hastings, Robert Walter(my great grandfather)whom married Fanny May Champlin, Ida Bell whom married Andrew J.Knight, Minnie whom died at 3 months old, Alice Josephine whom married John Walter Bales, Charles Oscar whom married Ida May Cook.
