I'm looking for a Stitt family that lived in the Indianapolis area in 1937. An article in the Tipton Tribune at the time of his daughter's death, in 1937, stated that my g.grandfather Ralph or Charles?? Maddox was employed as a gardener at the "STITT estate"outside Indianapolis. I have very little information on my g.grandfather and am looking for anyone who knew him and/or his family and might have even a small bit of information that would help in my search for who his family was. His wife died of influenza during the outbreak in approx. 1918. No one living knows what her name was. The newspaper said she was Lyle Smith. I haven't been able to find anything about her. It's thought that he lived in the Indy area his entire life. He was in the Carmel, IN area at the time of his death, in the ? mid 60s, and maybe buried in that vicinity. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
