My Grandfather is William Wakefield Clifford, and lived in the LaPorte Co, IN area. My Grandmother is Althea Neena Tarr Clifford, from Warren Co, IN and Huntington Co, IN.
My Grandfather's parents are Michael Clifford and Ella George Clifford, from around the Boone Co, IN and Clinton Co, IN area. Some towns they lived in are Colefax, Thorntown, Hazelrigg, Advance, and Lebanon.
My mother is Marjorie B. Clifford O'Bringer. She was born in Boone, IA, but spent most of her life in the LaPorte Co, IN area.
My father is George Anthony O'Bringer, from Michigan City, IN. He was born in Hammond, IN.
Other family names I am searching are Parkison, Thrailkill, and Porter, and Wakeman.
This information is compiled from many sources, some of which has not yet been proven. Any corrections or additions will be greatly appreciated.
I found this verse handwritten by my grandfather Clifford: Deuteronomy 29:29 "The secret things belong unto The Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of the law". My prayer is that we may draw strength from our Christian heritage, learn from mistakes made, and love and serve God better by knowing our family history.
