Now I know why they said we had English ancestory.. Was your father also called "Sonny"? By living on Fletcher Avenue, he was real close to his sister Lissie Graber who lived on Spann Avenue. I am not sure of Lissie "real" name. We always called her Aunt Olie. My uncle Pete Holstine lived next door to her on Spann. Did you go to Christian Park #82?

Frank Doane was killed in WWI in France. He was born 2-5-1898, Odon Daviess County, IN. Farmer. Entered service Sept. 19, 1917, Washington, IN. Sent to Camp Taylor, KY assigned to 33rd Company, 9th Battalion, 159th Depot Brigade. Transferred to Camp Shelby, Miss. Overseas in June 1918: assigned to Company F, 28th Infantry, 1st Division. Fought at Soissons, Chateau-Thierry, and St. Mihiel. Killed in action September 12, 1918. Was buried in france but later my grandmother Maude had him brought over here for reburial. All this information came from the book called GOLD STAR HONOR ROLL 1914 to 1918. It's a list of all Indiana soldiers killed in WWI. This book was sent to my grandparents by the government.

I have very few pictures of the Doanes. I might be able to help identify some of your pictures. My mom has helped me fill in some of the blanks from what she remembers about the Doanes, maybe she can recognize a few faces.

By the way, who is your Uncle Bob? Thanks again for all the update. I am just getting into this and it just keeps pulling me further in... Judy
