Hi All,

I'm searching for my great-grandparents and can't find much on them. Here's what I have so far:

Thomas J. AULDRIDGE b: Abt. 1849 in Illinois or Indiana +Eudora Elizabeth HAYES b: Abt. 1868 in Indiana, m: November 7, 1883 in Posey CO, Indiana
Mary Lourainy AULDRIDGE, b: March 7, 1889 in Griffin, Posey CO., Indiana, d: December 8, 1958 in Mt. Vernon, Posey CO., Indiana, burial: December 10, 1958 Bellefontaine Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, Posey CO., Indiana
+Ross Fay BOATMAN, b: September 25, 1886 in Posey CO., Indiana, m: October 30, 1911 in Posey CO, Indiana, d: December 17, 1963 in Mt. Vernon, Posey CO., Indiana, burial: December 20, 1963 Bellefontaine Cemetery, Mt. Vernon, Posey CO., Indiana.

Family lore has it that Thomas and Eudora Auldridge were killed in an accident when Mary Lourainy was small and she was raised by her grandmother. I have the unusual spelling of Auldridge from a family Bible.

This is all I have on them, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave Thornton

Thomas is in his Dad's Probate (age 10) and his Mom the guardian.
