  • Notes 
    • NOTE: I have been going over the notes of Joyce L. Clore Elkins andthose of Cathi Clore Frost and comparing them for some sort ofcollaboration on where the family was located. It would appear thatthe farm land bordered both Parke and Montgomery Counties andoverlapped into both. So, it has been very difficult to determineexactly which county is the birth and death counties of individuals inmany cases. Also, in many cases, where one of them is married in acounty it's not necessarily where they lived in a county and viceversa. There may be some errors in locations of births and deaths.If you should decide a mistake was made, please feel free to contactme: sljuhl1234@yahoo.com or at
