Joseph and Jonathan Bauman are probably children in the Deacon John Bowman
family -who moved to near Hagerstown, Wayne Co IN --Nettle Creek Church.
Henry Nelson is likely the son of John Nelson and Nancy Lybrook, of whom
the family retained no information, just his name. He came from near the
town of Kitchel, just south of Boston IN.
The Starr family married into the John Rife family of near Boston IN, but I
don't have the given name Jesse. This is the family that made the good
Starr Piano, in Richmond many years ago.
I've several Snyder's marry into Four Mile families, but I don't have any
of the families in my records. Same with Shoemaker. I'm going to be doing
some more Union Co research!!!
