A few more family resources were posted to the Free Databases that might provide some clues for family historians.

The first is the Hut Family Bible Transcription. The original Bible is now lost to this branch of the family, who do, however, own and shared an English translation of the German content written by Theodore Henry Hut, the eldest child of Ludwig and Addelhia Brandt Hut. The couple, Theodore and another, child, Johanna, came of the United States from Germany in 1837, and settled in Ohio. The Bible record is in narrative form and follows the Theodore, his parents, three wives and children through births, marriages and deaths. The item is truly a valuable document for the family and we are pleased it was shared with us, and you.

The next item, transcribed and donated by Martha Bowes, is the Autobiography of Jane Ivison Scott Hanna, born about 1810 in Scotland and died in 1891 in Indiana. This account is dated 1877 and provides a fascinating look at her life before and after immigration.

Shelley Cardiel found and “rescued” three photographs of the some of the children of Nicholas and Rosa Bauer Plain of Atlanta, Indiana. Ms. Cardiel also provided identifying information about the family through census and cemetery records, adding to the value of these photos.

Barbara McCoy donated a copy of a family group record for the John Monroe Kirk family of Pennsylvania and Indiana, as well as an extended family photo taken in celebration of John’s 75th birthday in 1905. The photo features the descendants of John’s father and uncle, Jesse and Alexander Kirk.

And last, Ms. McCoy also donated a family group record and family photos of Joseph Ray Guernsey and Flora Anderson Phrall, also of Indiana. There are several World War I photos of Joseph Ray, including one with a group of other (unfortunately unidentified) servicemen at Fort Dix in 1918. Take a look and see if you can identify any of the other men.

We are very appreciative to be allowed to post these images, and welcome any that others may wish to contribute!
