I am just beginning to research the names : FIRTH, LECKLIDER, JARVIS, RADER, MENDENHALL, MCFARLAND for now. Mainly from the Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia region. Much information that I have listed here, is from family sources, and from the internet.My husband, John E. Lecklider and I live in a small community called Greens Fork, IN. And are just learning about the joys and the trials of researching ones family history. And what started off as a seemingly small endeavor, has turned into a full time job, for me. LOL
Here is some information that I am having trouble finding. And if you can relate to any of these names/places , we would love to hear from you.
Firth is my maiden name and am looking for information on my GFather who resided in Wayne County, Richmond, IN. His name was John Firth d. est. 1965? m. Edith Miller? Carrington d. 1968 Wayne Co.,IN
sons: William Firth,Jr. (from John's earlier marriage)Charles Lee Firth, Edward Vernon Firth b.April 18,1927-d.June 18,1990?
married (my mother) Evelyn Rader in Richmond, IN.
Was also told that John Firths father was possibly a lumber jack? and resided in the southern states, moving around, and finally ending up in Tennesse?
(also was told that John Firths' father possibly immigrated from England?)Would like to know when and where.
Also looking for information on Parents of Johannes Conrad Lecklider b. Dec. 23,1724 in Bremen, Germany d. Sept. 5, 1781 in Fredrick Co., MD.
Also looking for Jarvis,Rader names from Kentucky.
Amros (Embros) Jarvis m. Sallie? Herd, Horsecreek, KY? am looking for any ancestors. Sallie was my G Grandmother, and could have another given name. Also Ambros was married before, with a son John Jarvis. Any information on that marriage would be appreciated. And any info on a William Albert Rader b.1901 who married Cora Jarvis b.1903, Horse Creek, KY. They lived in Richmond, IN, Wayne County. They had 4 children : Carl Eugene, Charles, Evelyn, Paul.(all deceased)
I am working to get my family tree on the internet, but need this missing info to make it more complete. Hopefully soon :-)
Any information at all, would be appreciated.
Thank you and God bless you!
