Arment, Steward
I'm looking for information on the families of my ancestors, William Steward and Sarah Arment, who were married in Vermillion County, IN  in 1841.  Spelling variations for their last names include Stewart, Stuard, Stuart, Armend, Armett, Arnent, and possibly Arnett.
William and Sarah Steward lived near Covington, IN during the 1840's.  By 1850 they had moved to Carroll Twp. Vermilion County, IL.  Their children included Jonathan, Esther, Andrew, Mary J., Sarah, Maria or May, and Billie M.
According to census records William was born about 1815 either in PA or at sea.  His parents were both born in Ireland.  His father may have been Henry.
Sarah Arment was born about 1816 in North Carolina.  In 1850 Mary Armett age 53 and Andrew I Armett age 15 were living with William and Sarah.  They are presumed to be Sarah's mother and brother.  The Arment family  moved to Indiana prior to Andrew's birth.
These lines have been difficult to research.  If anyone has knowledge of either the Steward or Arment family, I'd be extremely grateful to hear from you.

Trying to find info on Jennie BARNARD, who was born Aug 10, 1848 in Vermillion Co., Indiana.
I have no knowledge of her parentage. She was apparently sent to live with some relatives in Illinois at a very young age.  Unknown if both of her parents died or if her mother did and father was unable to care for her? Jennie is the 3rd GGrandmother of my children, and 2nd GGrandmother of my husband. Does the county have birth or death records in the year 1848? Does anyone have access to any sources that might be able to help me? I would appreciate any leads you can give.

Bear, Lott 
I am trying to learn more about my great grandmother and her parents.
The 1860 census has David Bear, wife Clarissa and their daughters (including my gg Harriett) in Eugene. At the time they were farmers. The 1870 census has Clarissa living in Perryville with Harriet(missing one T) and Alice. Clarissa, then is a factory worker, and Harriet, at 18, a domestic servant.I am curious as to what type of factory would be in Perryville in 1870. Perhaps the father was lost in the Civil War...I have not determined that. Anyway, anyone searching BEAR family members in Vermillion County would have my interest, as well as the LOTT family. Harriett married Isaac Newton Lott in Eugene. 16 Jan 2004

Lyday, Rush, Carroll, Farris
I am looking for the parentage of Benjamin Franklin Lyday. My records, which came from Benjamins grandson, show his birth as 6 September 1822 in Philadelphia, PA. and was buried in the Hopkins Cemetery in Vermillion County, Indiana sometime after 1861. He was married to Vesta Ann Rush in 1844. She died in 1862 and was buried on a farm in Clinton, Vermillion, IN. They raised 9 children in Clinton: Sara A. (Jane) Lyday born in 1846, Mary Francis 1848, Daniel Webster 1849, Mariah (Maria) E. 1850, William Thomas 1852, Martha Kate 1857, Armanda Josephine 1858, Anna 1860, and John 1861. John died in 1862 at an age of 9 months. The 1850 census shows shows Benjamin, Vesta, Sara, Mary, and Daniel living in Clinton (it also reports Benjamin as being 30 years old, where my records would have as 28 or 29). This census also records their last name as Lidy. On the internet, I can find no record of a Hopkins Cemetery in Vermillion County.
I am specifically interested in his death date, cause of death, verification of his birth date, and identification of his parentage.
I am also interested in data on Charity Carroll born in Clinton, Vermillion, In 4 Jul 1848 and her parents Benjamin Franklin Carroll and Elizabeth Farris. Charity married Daniel Webster Lyday 11 Aug 1868 in Terre Haute.

Manly, Manley
We are looking for males of the Manley/Manly family lines, who are interested in participating in creating a Manley/Manly DNA family tree. The "Y" chromosome markers not only provide information on common ancestors, but how many generations back that ancestor was.
This project will help to scientifically establish any common ancestors amongst the US lines and any possible ties to the family lines abroad.
As of Nov 2003 we have 12 members from other Manly/Manley families.  My DNA represents the Manley/Manly lines that were in Vermillion County IN, from abt 1815 to 1860's.  William [married Elizabeth Nickels and Rachel Wallis], an original homesteader, [SW 1/4, Sec 6, TW 16N, R9W .. dated 20 Feb 1824] and children, Garlington [married a Rachel Carmack], Archibald [married a Polly Capps], Mary [Married John Moore],   Edmund [married Susanna Everly], Jemima [married  Curtis Capps], William (Jr) [married Manerva Ingram], Eliza [Harrison Jaggers], Stephen, Margaret, James and Rebecca Ann.  Soon, we will have one or two more from the William [Jr] line.

In order to have a more accurate picture of these family lines it would be ideal to have more participation in the project. If you are interested in learning more about this project, including the testing process, fees and security measures or if you would like to begin a surname project of your own, please visit our site @

Newport Query
I am trying to find out how Newport got the name Newport?

My family (Barker) has lived in Vermillion County since the early 1800s and when I try to connect them to the Barkers in the US in the  1600/1700s I find a lot of Barkers living in Newport, RI.  If Newport Indiana was named after Newport, RI this may give me hope for a  connection between the 1600/1700 Barkers and the early 1800 Barkers in  Vermillion county
