My father-in-law was John Leonard Uphold, born in Muncie, IN, in 1893. His parents were Benjamin F. Uphold and Ellen K. Moyer-Uphold. John was the 8th child.
Benjamin was born in Ohio about 1855. Ellen was born in IN about 1856.

John was a kind and gentle man. He lived in Mt Pleasant, MI, Isabella Co.. John passed away in 1961.
John married Helen Bernice Offill. One son, Donald Lee Uphold and Marlene Yvonne "Sally" Uphold.
John had dear friends in the Lewis family. I believe they were from the Flint area.
Uphold families also lived in the Waters, MI and Fredric MI, areas.
I know there are family connections with: O'Kelly; DeMoines: and Kemp.
