    Notes 
    • Interesting note - Mom recalls that a doctor from Carroll County would come to visit her grandparents (John Morton & Jemima Cook) at their Milton, Indiana home in Wayne County. Other than being on the Cook side, Mom never knew the identity of the doctor. I found that it was certainly (verified in local news item) Dr. Edward D. Wagoner, John Morton?s nephew. Edward died 23 Nov 1935. No wonder Mom didn?t remember much, she was only 9 years when he died.
