Re: Ira Young m. Sophia Crippen
Nice to hear from you.
You've done a lot of work on this family and that's impressive. They're a difficult bunch and seem to appear and then disappear at random.
It was truly providential that Sophia Crippen Young's grave was found. The James Cemetery was one of the oldest in Porter County and was abandoned and overgrown. The mere fact it was found at all was a miracle.
I'd wager that Ira is buried at the same cemetery.
I will contact the Porter Co Library--I've heard tell they have readings from stones taken from many years ago.
I'll be glad to share what I have on this line.
