Hiram Redding b. 6 aug 1834 in plymouth, marshall, indiana. Both parents supposedly born in Ohio. Can't find parents name.
? Joseph born 1800 in Ohio.

found out for sure that Matthias and Elizabeth Redding were not Hiram's parents. This according to Marshall Co. Historical Society in Marshall, Indiana.


After reading the info. from MHS, it turned out that Joseph was definately Hiram, Elizabeth and David Reddings father. David was born in 1841 but can't find out anything about what happened to the mother. Joseph went to fight in the Mexican war in 1846-1848 and left his children. Hiram was on his own, Elizabeth (12) at that time evidentually went to live with an uncle? in Indiana, David (4) was adopted by Isacc How family. Joseph died in 1848 after the war supposedly on his way back home to Indiana. Anyone have more information on the mother please let me know. Matthias was married to Elizabeth Higans and after he died she remarried to a Daniel Nitcher (not their) mother.
