    Notes 
    • From Hazel (Wiedbrauk) Phetteplace to me via e-mail Dec 2005:
      "Elesta came to Curran with her father and three siblings in 1910. Her mother had died and she took care of the family, went to school, etc., at age 13. They lived with her father's (Amos) brother, Ben Yoder for several years. Elesta and Lew were married 13 November 1915, and they lived in a lumber camp the first years where Lew worked. Later, he built the stone house north of Cora's and on the opposite side of the road. They farmed and he had a welding business and shod horses way back when. They lived out their lives there, Uncle Lew passing on Feb. 9, 1952 in Zephyrhills, Fla. (Heart attack, I think). They spent just a few winters in Fla. and after his death, Aunt Elesta remained here in their home and she died in 1979."

      BIRTH: Another source says she was born in Lapaz, Marshall Co., IN.
