My grandfather, on my father's side, "Bert" (Burton H. Mikesell) married Lou A Darnell from Brownstown, Illinois and located in Twelve Mile, Indiana where he was a blacksmith. His father was George W Mikesell. I'm stuck from going any further back. I have fairly good personal documentation (letters, family Bible, pictures and obituaries)on my father's mother side, Lou A Darnell but I've seen her name also recorded as Alma Louise. My great grandmother Elizabeth Paslay (Pasley) and her sister Mary A Paslay (Pasley) married brothers, William J Darnell and Joseph Darnell, respectively. The brothers' parents were Henry H or D Darnold (I suspect Darnell) and Hannah Retta Hensley. Elizabeth and Mary A.'s parents were Isaac M Pasley (Paslay) and Mary. Isaac's parents were James Pasley (Paslay) and his wife Betsy Elizabeth (Blunt).
