Thanks for the information on the book. I'll have to look into it.
My records show Richard K. Imes, b. between 1844 and 1846 in Indiana, died Jan 3, 1919. He was married to Martha Elizabeth Wirick, b. abt 1848, died 1920 in Westville, IN. They were married Oct 25, 1866 in White Co., IN.
I show Richard Imes being the son of George Iiames (b. 9/28/1819 Greene Co, PA, d. May 20, 1876) and Elizabeth unknown (b. approx 1818-1819 in Indiana). Siblings of Richard include Willis Imes (b. 1842), George W. Imes (b. abt 1850, Albert Newton Imes (b. abt 1852) and James F. Imes (b. abt 1858). Does this information square with what you have?
