Pulling out my hair- John W Peters
- Hi everybody. I have been getting so frustrated looking for my great-grandfather, John W Peters. I join a club in Indiana thinking I could get some help form the people that live there and nope, nothing. Does anybody here live in Marion Co, Indiana and can look up some information. This is what I have been able to find:
John W Peters-born in Ohio about 1831. Parents names unknown.
1870-He was living in Franklin Ward 2,Johnson, Indiana with wife, Ada and son Charly 3. He was a peddler.
1880- Ada was living in Marion Co., Indiana with 2 sons, Charley and John Wessely. She is widowed at this time.
John dies between 1870 and 1875. I got as far as looking for information in the library in Indiana but you had to be a member to look at the records.
I have tried to look for cemeteries that he would be buried in and can't find anything that old or anybody at the cemeteries I contacted to help.
I am so close but yet so far. It has taken me about 12 yrs to get all this. If anyone could help I would be very thankful, Barb
