Also, Sarah’s brother, John McCamish, married Lorenzo’s sister, Hannah Gantz, in 1858. The parents of James, John, and Sarah McCamish, were William McCamish and Margaret Elizabeth Gray. The other children in the family of James, John, and Sarah, were Edward (married Sarah Elizabeth Hutchinson) and Louisa, about whom I have no further information. These families all lived in Randolph County, IN.

Looking for my Aunt.
I think that my dad must have been a very happy baby, because as an adult, he was a very happy person. His mother was a very gentle person, and he was the first born, so I am sure he was doted on as a child. He had two brothers, and all of them were two years apart. They were all very kind people. My Dad's father, Roy Mills Hiatt, was the oldest of four boys.
There is a great book available on the Hiatt family by William Perry Johnson. It is currently published by the Higginson Book Company, although the original printing was by the Jesse Hiatt foundation in the 1950's. You have to special order it if you want a copy; this is what I did, and it is a wonderful source of information on this family in America, and even some information about the family in England. It contains over 600 pages of historical and genealogical information.

My Dad's grandmother, Alice Mills, may have lived in Washington for a time. She was a school teacher. The interesting thing, is that my Dad's grandmother and grandfather on his father's side and their whole families, were from Randolph County, Indiana. They had lived there for at least a couple of generations. I'm not really sure though, because Alice Mills passed away in Tulare, California in 1941.
Anyway, I also wanted to thank you again for posting the photo, becuase it really has been fun finding it and corresponding with you, and to let you know that I did get it OK. I am going to send it to my sister for Valentine's Day as a surprise. I think she will really enjoy it. I will get this information on my Dad in the mail to you too. Stefani 2006
