Wann Family Genealogy Forum
Kelly, I used to be married to Maurice Wann of Anderson IN. His brother Richard Wann lives in Elwood, IN. Both are in Madison Co. IN. Richard's wife, Ruth, has been working on that family line for years. I was also working on it when Mr. Wann and I were married. Your Wann's and the Madison Co. Wanns are related. Ruth, isn't on the net, (I don't think) but you could reach her by phone. I am certain their number is listed and you could get it from the operator. It is OK to tell them that Maxine gave you their name. We are all still on very friendly terms, even though I don't see them much these day. Her is the line that I have at my fingertips.
Maurice's father was Clifford Herman Wann, b. April 28, 1887 Madison Co. IN
His father was Elmer Wann, b. March 4, 1868; His father was Ira Wann, b. Jan 3 1847, Madison Co. IN, and his father was Isaac Wann born Dec 21, 1812, and his father was Michael Wann II b. 1788 in Lebanon PA. His father was Michael Wann, died, Oct 18, 1812, Lebanon Co. PA, Jackson TWP. He was Rev War Soldier. His wife was Anna Catherine (?) and she died, Oct 28, 1854, Lebanon Co. PA. I have been to her grave in Pennsylvania and we took pictures. I believe that I gave them to Mr. Wann when we divorced. I have other information, including wives and death dates etc. Also, these Wanns lived around Elwood, which is right next to the Tipton Co. line and also to the north of Elwood, close to the Grant Co. IN line for several generations. I will almost bet that your Tipton Wann's are from the same line. Since I am not following that anymore, I couldn't tell you for sure. Hope this helps. Maxine
