I am looking for info on the Rea family, located mostly in the Terre Haute, Indiana area. I have quite a bit, but would like confirmation of it as well as additions. Here goes:
1.Samuel Rea (abt.1790-1889) born in PA, and died in Owen Co.
2. Samuel Rea (1817-1882) born in Coshocton Co., Ohio and Died in Owen Co., Indiana. he married Eleanor Wilson in Cosocton Co.
3 Samuel McClellen Rea (1864-1947) born in Indiana and Died in Terre Haute. He married Mary Coats in 1886, and according to Owen Co. Indiana record found on Page 148 Book c-40 he married her Sister Eva Belle Coats in 1895.
Now this seems ok on the surface, but the 1900 census lists her as Samuels "sister in law". Also Mary is supposed to have died in 1899. 4 years after Samuel and Eva's marriage.
The 1900 census also lists Troy Rea the son of Eva as a nephew to Samuel.
I am assuming there is a typo here somewhere and am hoping someone might have some info to help clear it up.
I am also looking into some other sources in Indiana, so who knows.
4. Fern Rea(1906-1977) was born inTerre Haute and died in Grand Rapids, MIchigan. She was the Daughter of Samuel and Eva, and is my Grandmother. She married Paul Barnes (1905-1990). They are both married at the Chappel Hill Cem. in Grand Rapids.
Any Info/help would be great.
