Bill, It is great to hear from you. I haven't posted here in a while and the new log-in thing was giving me fits, I think I have it figured out now though. Since my original post I have learned that Delia's maiden name was Jacobs, and they weren't actually in Ind. but rather Danville ILL. my grandmother Louise was named for Louis, and as I mentioned she tried to look him up once but he said he didn't want to see her, and that was enough for her. Delia, remarried to a man named Jack Smith, and they had two sons together. Jack worked with draft horses so they moved around quite a bit. Louise, was married twice, first to my granfather Hildreth Baker, they had my mom, their marriage did not survive WWII, Louise then remarried a man named Berringer. They had a daughter together, so you have an additional cousin named Mary, but she isn't interested in "family" other than a Christmas card. my e-mail is jschario@Hotmail.com I will tell my mom about finding you. Do you have any photos of louis? I would love to know what my "long lost great grandfather" looks like?
