First off, in what part of familysearch did you find the information? Ancestral File and Pedigree Resource lists submitters and their addresses. The IGI, if the Temple work was done prior to 1991, you can find the name and address, too -- though not listed on index, you have to find Batch number and get film etc. The IGI is partly an index to Temple Submissions for members of the LDS church, BUT I'm here to tell you even it has some errors, Bigtime. People tend to think it is sacred and can't have mistakes, but they have my 2nd gr grdmthr married to her son. Wow! But, the right state. She's entered twice, second time to right husband, but then in wrong state. I have the documentation, so I know I'm right. There's a book in FHL in Salt Lake City with same error, someone just copied it out of the book, without checking or proving information. When you see information just listed, and no source, then it is up to you to prove, or disprove, the information.

The book I gave before, does not show Hiram Savage with a dau named Susan/Susannah. What state does Susan give as birth location for her father on census records? The book shows Hiram b KY, and James R. b MO. That might help you figure out which one was your Susan's father. That same book gave Henry T. Dunaway as her husband with marriage date, but does not give source. That info is in the part that says source is census record, and that wouldn't show up on census. I wondered when I saw the date, because Grayson Co, TX had a courthouse fire in the 1930s (yes, nineteen). My m-in-l could remember it. You might try and find that actual marriage record, you can't trust someone else taking it down correctly. I never make mistakes, but sometimes other people do. (^_^)

Frontier Village is in Loy Park, address is given as: Frontier Village, Loy Lake Rd, Hwy 75 Ext 67, Denison, TX ----(903) 463-2487
