Re: Daniel Murray Shroyer & Jane Covill - Henry Co Ohio

In Reply to: Re: Daniel Murray Shroyer & Jane Covill - Henry Co Ohio by Virginia Plumley of 770

I don't have tons on this line, but here's most of it.... something's happened to my Covill database, and I'm not sure if I can retrieve it or not at this point, I'm thinking the newspaper articles mentioned might be in it... otherwise I'd have the articles in what follows, not just brief mentions of them? The Shelby Co birth book that lists G.L. Shroyer has a birth date of 11/5/1885, which is what I show for Grover, but the book doesn't list his parents, he's listed right under Gracy A. Shroyer, dau of Daniel and Jane Covill Shroyer, maybe they meant to put ditto marks on G.L.'s entry and forgot them? You just really can't tell.

Grover L. Shroyer is the informant on James Ora Shroyer's death certificate? It looks like it's actually his signature if you have anything else to compare it to?
