  • Notes 
    • A. Source: Records of Joyce Lorraine Clore Elkins of Parke County,Indiana.
      There is no doubt what so ever that the LaBaw, Stout, Burk, Smith,Douglass, French, and all of the families listed below in Indiana arerelated.
      I am a direct descendant of all of them. My grandmother's maiden namewas Douglass and my mother's maiden name was Clore and my father'ssurname was Elkins. The Douglass intermarried with LaBaw, French,Reynolds, Smith, Redenbaugh, Sparks, Burk. The Clore's intermarriedwith the Martin, Otterback, Rector families. My father's Elkinsfamily intermarried with the Clore's, Sparks, Rector, Deer families.My folks were third cousins, so I am related by descent to all of thefamilies.
      My mother's (Joyce Lorraine Clore Elkins) research was exemplary andconcise. She knew many of the older family members as well in almosteveryone of the above families. Mother gathered source informationfrom those family members and then backed it up with biographies,obituaries, census records, marriage & death records, etc.... thesources are so multiple that I have not listed all of them in mynotes, but be assured there is a reference source somewhere amongstall of the many volumes of her work that I now own throughinheritance. I have endeavored over the last ten years to also updaterecords when time allows. When I do update, the sources are usuallyincluded in the notes of the person being updated in my Family TreeMaker program. The families are so multiple in origin with hundredsof branch families that putting all of the information into thecomputer has been a work in progress, and it continues even now.There are more than 12 books on the different families that I haveworked on so far already at the Crawfordsville Public Library.
