My husband's grandfather was Robert Twaits/Thwaits. He was born in Indiana in1898 and died 1955. He married Edna May Parker. According to the 1920 Census, Robert's father was born in Indiana and his mother was born in Virginia. Any information on the Twaits/Thwaits of Northern Indiana would be welcomed. I've also seen information on Samuel and Benjamin Twaits who lived in the same area, but can't tie them together yet.

As of now, I don't have any Agnes Thwait(e)s in the family line. Do you have any more information about her? Where did she live? Most of the Thwaits/Twaits in my husband's line lived in Indiana and Ohio. I've only been able to trace them back to the 1870's although I have to admit that I'm working more on other family lines at the moment.

At last! I knew there had to be a connection, Twaits/Thwaits is such an unusual name and Ohio is right next to Indiana, but I just couldn't figure it out. I've kept the info that I had on Samuel and Benjamin, but didn't know where they fit in. I'd love any info that you have, and would be glad to share what I have. My husband is related through his father, Charles E., grandfather, Robert, great-grandfather, James. Because his parents divorced over 45 years ago, my husband hasn't seen any of the family since then. We've made contact and are going out to Indiana in 2 weeks to visit with his favorite uncle from so long ago! Anyway, I'd love to share info with you.

Glad to hear from you .Some of my info came from Lester Thwaits in Ohio .
Another very unusual thing is that when I worked at the Bluffton wells Co.Council on Aging the director is Bonnie Valind ,maiden name Thwaits from Ohio and Lester is her uncle.
Let me know when you get back and will get things together for you .
