INGHAM, Solomon; GADD, Lydia Ann; HUSBAND, Rebecca

The above extracts from the IndianaGenWeb site (stars added by me) coupled with the following facts lead to the question, "What other resources such as Church records, Newspaper files, etc are available for the areas in question?" I would like to fill in some blanks in this period of my gggrandfather's, Solomon Ingham's, life.

Solomon Ingham (see marriage listing and store list) was brother (or possibly father - there is a line of Solomons) to Clarissa (store list). His marriage to Lydia Ann was his first of three. Lydia's father was Thomas Gadd (Gad in store listing). Who is John Gadd? Solomon's second marriage was to a Rebecca Husband. Is it too much to wonder if she is related to John Husband (or Husban in store list)? Solomon's auto-bio gives 22 Nov 1848 for his m to Rebecca. I have not found a public record confirmation. To date I have no info on Rebecca's parents or siblings. Rebecca bore three children to Solomon and died with the third birth. All three children died very young. After moving to IA in the Methodist Circuit Solomon m Cynthia Taylor in 1854. His children by Lydia were left with Wareham Woodyard, Solomon's step-brother - son of Deborah West Ingham Woodyard, until Solomon was settled.

Any clues will be greatly appreciated.

tkemerly@aol.com John Todd Kemerly Tue Oct 7 18:36:19 1997
KEMERLY, Mathias burried in Madison County, IN. His wifes maiden name was MANNING. Mathias had a sawmill business in the area. Would like to find out more about them both as far as dates of birth, marriage & death and any history on their parents as well. They had at least three sons Walter Kemerly, Joseph Kemerly and Charles Kemerly. Charles wifes first name was Ema and they had 8 children Myrtle May, Laura Jane, Alta Mable, Lawrence, Clarence, Everett, Goldie G. and Charles Robert. Clarence was married to Hazel Cook Kemerly and they had three children Herschel, Richard & Mary. Richard Dale Kemerly was married to Geneva Mae Durbin and they had two sons, John Bernard Kemerly and James Dale Kemerly. John Kemerly is married to Jeri Kay Paskins and is my father. I am the oldest of his three children John Todd, Kristi Kay & Douglas Bernard. I have four daughters now Sarah Kay, Kelly Marie, Shannon Mae & Madison Lee. I am quite curious to learn more about my family history and would welcome any assistance I could get. All of my family was from the Madison, Marion, Hancock & Hamilton County area. I have been told that the Kemerly family originally settled in Lancaster, PA but don't know where they came from before that or just when they arrived in Indiana.
