John A. Brocas moved to Madison from Cincinnati. There were three daughters in his family: Caroline (married Josiah Boone, 5-17-1840), Laura (married Alexander Harper) and Mary Ann (married Zenas Bramwell, 4-11-1849). Much is known about Caroline but very little about Laura and nothing about Mary Ann. Any info on them would be appreciated. Reply to WD4IFN (at)Charter.Net.
Looking for information on the Frank W. Phillips & Hugh Smith Families. Hugh Smith was born around 1818 in Ireland, immigrated here in 1849 and was naturalized in 1854. I have two different names for wives Mary Brandon that I got from Ancestry.com and Julia Mullen which I got from this website. So not sure now if I have the right Hugh Smith. I have for Hugh's children as Thomas, Matthew, Anna, Mary, Catherine, Maggie. Catherine is my G.Grandmother who married Frank W. Phillips (who I will get to in a moment).
I recently found a website citing a source of G.A. Roberts writings of a letter speaking of his migration from Maryland into Indiana with two other families of which I'm a direct descendant. The families mentioned in these writings are of Thomas Leatherbury and Samuel Taylor Blodgett. If anyone may have these writings or know where I can find them please let me know. I am willing to share any information concerning any families I'm researching with other researchers.

I am looking for the husband of Catharine Lockridge b. 1795. She is in the 1850 census in Jefferson County with two sones James W. and John. Can anyone please tell me who her husband was. Thanks Barb Hall
I am a descendant of this gentleman, born in Madison, Jefferson Co, IN. While William was born in Indiana, he spent most of his life in Pennsylvania and Maryland. I believe he is the grandson of Jonathan McClure and Catherine Shafner. Any assistance would be appreciated.
