Hi.. My family traces back to John Greathouse and Catherine Haack

Their son Daniel b. abt 1794 married Katherine Shadle 20 Apr 1819
Their daughter Mariah b. 11 Dec 1825 m. Solomon Story 28 Aug 1851
Their daughter Alice Ann b. 13 Sep 1857 m. Francis Frederick Parker28 Feb 1878
Their son Henry Harrison Parker  b.28 Mar 1887 m. Henrietta Mulvany28 Nov 1912
Their daughter Alice Ann b. 23 Jan 1935 is sitting here hoping some snippits of
     info on any of these branches might come my way.
I am particularly searching for the death of Daniel about 1840-45 in Wabash Co IL area

My great-grandmother was Maria Greathouse Story, 4th of 5 children in this family. Some of her letters survive as well as Civil War pension documentation. I was named for my grandmother, Alice Ann Story Parker. Maria's husband was, indeed, Solomon Story but he DID NOT DIE IN 1859! Solomon died at the Battle of Vicksburg 22 May 1863, two weeks after their youngest child was born. The Solomon who died in March 1859 in IL was probably his uncle, the eldest brother of his father Moses Story.

Second note is a disagreement as to placing James Greathouse in this family. One of the things we have in our family papers is a list of Maria's brothers. I believe if she had a brother James, he would have been included in the list.

I have more info and some photos if any of this line is interested. :)
