*When I received my great grandfather's obituary, I got a big chunk of the page from the newspaper.  The Indianapolis Star obituaries have not been digitized, so I figured I would go ahead and share with everyone, in case someone was looking.

Sorry for the teaser, Debi! Unfortunately, spelling aside, the timeline for this guy is probably all wrong for us to even try to make a case for him being your 3rd ggrandfather LOL.
