I saw your reply to the Indiana Clay county Rootsweb and thought I would
I have some Letsinger information that has come my way during my search for
the Strome, Phipps, Hunter and Goad lines and thought I would send it your
way in case it ties in with the Letsinger's that you are searching. Hope it
does. Every little bit helps when searching.
My Ida Jane Strome married Theodore Letsinger. One of my dad's brother's was
names for him (Theodore). Ida's mother's name was Catherine Strome, a sister
to my Grandfather Samuel Strome - dad's father. There were eight (8)
children in Catherine and Samuel's family.
What I am attaching is really all that I have on the Letsinger's. If your
Letsinger ties into my Strome line let me know and I can send you some other
information. This file is in text form so you can open it in Word Perfect or
Hope this HELPS.
