Thanks for your info. I am new to this and was astonished to get such a quick response. Are you a descendant of Melissa? I would be interested in any information that you have, and of course would be willing to share any that I have.

My family has been wanting information, also. I have been looking up John and Mary Ann Cross, Shellabarger. My grandfather, Charles Wesley Elder, is a son of Clara Ellen Shellabarger Elder, which is their daughter. I do have everything after John & Mary Ann Cross, but not before. I have been trying to search everything before. Hope you have found it.
Here's some things I have found. I'm still looking into anything I can. Thanks. Beth A. Eden, my mother is Alice M. Grable, & before that Alice M. Elder, & Charles Wesley Elder is her father.
