I am currently researching the Books' line. My great-grandfather was Jacob Books (born abt. 1836) and he was married in Elkhart County, Indiana in 1861 to Mary Reece. Their children's names were Maggie (married Clarence Bradford), Sarah (married John Charlston), Hugh (married Rose Eller), William (married Ida Mosier), Arthur (married Elsie Beggs), Thomas Ollo (my grandfather - married Hazel Wine) Everett (married Minnie Gorsuch), and Charles (Chauncey who died in a factory accident at a young age). They lived in the Elkhart, Indiana, Southern Michigan areas. I would like to know where my great-grandfather was born, etc. I am looking for a connection between the Book and Books family, if there is one. Any assistance will be appreciated.
