Re: Goerge Grim of Westmoreland County

Thank you for responding to my query. After reading your response to my query about Mary Elizabeth Grim/Grimm Young Cruthers, I checked out this query.

When Clara Whan, the Noble County web site host, posted Mary Elizabeth Grimm Young Cruther's death notice in the Noble County Births and Deaths Section the following is what she typed:

Decedentís name d.o.b. d.o.d. fatherís name        motherís name
Cruthers Mary E, 7-4-1835, 3-29-1911, Grins C,               Hannah Mary, A4

I know from several other documents that Mary Elizabeth's maiden name was Grimm, which is some times misspelled Grim. ďGrinsĒ is obviously a typo or the transcriberís inability to read the clerk's handwriting. So if the clerk's handwriting is hard to read, I am wondering if the "C" might not be a "G". Mary Elizabeth Grimm's mother's name was Mary Hannah and her daughter's name was Maria Louise Young. I suspect that Mary Elizabeth Grimm was the second wife of John Young. According to the 1910 U.S. Census Return for Swan Township, Noble County, IN, Mary Elizabeth gave birth to three children, only two of whom were still living, Mariah Louise Young Potter and John Young. Her son, Charles William Cruthers, by her second husband, Franklin Cruthers, is buried next to her in the Swan Township Cemetery. So that means that the eldest child on the 1870 U.S. Census Return, Mary Young, is John Young's daughter by another woman's child, i.e. presumably his first wife.

When I noticed that one of 1804-George had a sister named Maria, I could not help thinking that my Mary Elizabeth may well be related to 1804-George. Who did 1804-George Grimm marry? 1804-George went to Ohio. Both my Mary Elizabeth Grimm (1835-1911) and her brother Henry A. Grimm (1833-after 1911) were born in Ohio. So I can you tell me the names of all of 1804-George's children and the name of his wife.

Thanks for your help.
