Harry is my grandfather. He was born Harry Moke in Nevins, Edgar County Ill. Adelia Holdsworth Ormiston married David Ormiston Jr. after their spouses, Jacob Moke and Harriet Hall Ormiston passed away in Edgar County, Ill. David adopted Harry, who married Franc Marshall, my grandmother. They had two sons, Clifford, my uncle and William, my dad. I buried dad's ashes (William P.) at the foot of his mother's grave per his wish in 1989 and mom's (Mildred) next to him in 2004. So my dad and uncle and I are Mokes by blood, but Ormistons by adoption. Jacob my great grandfather and some of the other Mokes are buried in Edgar Cemetery in Paris, Ill. as is David Ormiston and some other Ormistons are too.
