Herb, I would appreciate any more information that you have. I do not have too much on the LaMunyon line. Concerning Sherman and Tirzah's children, I have Maggie May born Dec. 6, 1913 in Osolo Twp., Elkhart Co., IN and died Oct. 25, 1999 in Tuscon, AZ. She married Delbert Franklin Oswald on Feb. 8, 1930. He was the son of Charles Franklin Oswald and Mary Schrock. Delbert was born June 2, 1905 in Kokomo, Howard Co., IN and died Aug. 20, 1981 in Mesa, AZ. Maggie was my wife's grandmother and I have information on her descendants if you would like to have that. Zola Pearl LaMunyon was born Dec. 10, 1904 and died Feb. 4, 1905. She was buried in Elkhart Prarie Cemetery in Goshen, Elkhart Co., IN next to her mother Tirzah. Tirzah was born Oct. 2, 1880 and died Dec. 16, 1934 in Indianapolis, Marion Co., IN. On her death certificate it states that her father was Charles Cook and her mother's maiden name was Martha Sleppy. Can you explain that? She married Sherman LaMunyon on Nov. 29, 1899 in Lagrange Co., IN. Instead of Tirzah's child Elizabeth, I have Edith who married Sam Hardestry. I have that Thelma married Frank Zimmerman. I have Sherman born July, 1877 to Cornelius LaMunyon and Dorcus F. Hoover. Cornelius was born about 1849 in OH and died Mar. 22, 1895 in Clay Twp., Lagrange Co., IN. Dorcus was born Nov., 1847 in KY. Both of her parents were born in KY. Cornelius' father was born in OH and his mother was born in PA. I have Ella May marrying Oscar on Jan. 14, 1900 in Lagrange Co., IN. I have Oscar born 1872 and died 1967 and Ella May born 1885 and died 1960. They are buried in Elkhart Prarie Cemetery. I have children of Cornelius, other than Sherman and Ella May, as Albert born about 1878 in IN, Adrain born Mar. 5, 1882 in Lagrange Co., IN, Byron born Feb. 10, 1891 in Lagrange Co., IN. From the Lagrange County records, I have an Emmanuel LaMunyon who died in Clay Twp., Lagrange Co., IN on Apr. 16, 1900 and a George LaMunyon who died on Jan. 6, 1899 in Bloomfield Twp., Lagrange Co., IN. Emmanuel was 87 years old at time of death and George was 56 years old at time of death. Do these two people fit into our line? Hope to hear from you soon. Ernie
