I am at a dead end trying to find info on my g-g grandfather. This is all I have found:

Born 1857-Indiana

1880 Census- Scipio,LaPorte, Ind.- farm laborer-boarder at Joseph H. Donley's household

Married 3/3/1880 - LaPorte County, Indiana at Kingsbury Baptist Church to Mary E. Jackson

Child: Clyde (Claude) Curtis born 1881-Indiana
( I do not know if there were other children at this time)

The family moved to the Chicago area in the 1890's. I do not know if Frank & Mary moved there together or not. I just have info from Clyde/Claudes death certificate that he moved to the Chicago area around that time.

Does any of this sound familiar?...Thanks, Kathleen
