    I am looking for a birth record for Lewis W Hostetter, b. 7 May 1854 in Jamestown, IN, d. 9 Feb 1947 in Speedway, IN, son of Sherman Hostetter and Mary Ann Byrd. There is a marriage record available online (m. Anna Harting 30 Sep 1884) as well as a death certificate but no birth record so far that I have been able to find.

    Searching for a death record and other information for Isabel Hedge Leach, first wife of Willis Leach; born ~1842 IN to John Hedge and Pricilla Runyon Hedge. Married Willis Leach in 1859. Five known children: Oliver (b , 1864, ) , Mary (b 1867, ), James H (b 1868), Alonzo “Lon” (b 1870, ) and Lillian B (b 1876, ). Dates (except for Lillian) are from 1870 census; all are Jackson Twp, Boone County. By 1880, Willis Leach is remarried, Mary (age 14) is working as a servant, and Lillian B is being “fostered” by a Shelly family in Boone county. Alonzo appears to be living in Center Twp with a Leet family. James and Oliver are “missing” so far… Theory is that Isabel died and children were farmed out to various families in the county.
