Welcome to Couch Genealogy
Also, below is the URL for a website I found while searching for James Finley Couch. It may be of interest to you. Maybe you have established contact with the author of the webpage or maybe not. Just thought I would forward it on to you "just in case".
I have written an email to the author of the above website in hopes that maybe someone
will know how to get in touch with people of the James Finley Couch and Laura Etta
Wheeler family. I will include that letter here because the same requests pertain to
you and your Couch family.
This is an attempt to locate "contacts" of the James Finley Couch and
Laura Etta Wheeler family-line. If you know of anyone researching this
family please forward my name and email address to them, or their names
and email addresses to me.
I have reviewed this family's pages at your website
and would very much like to find these people. I noticed that your
pages refer to Laura Wheeler as "Laura Elizabeth Wheeler". I would like
to know where the information came from regarding her middle name. I am
99.99% certain her name was "Laura Etta Wheeler".
I am not directly related to the Couch line however I am related to
Laura Etta Wheeler. She was the full-sister to my great-Grandmother.
Any descendants of James Finley Couch and Laura Etta Wheeler are of my
Of note, my Mother has pictures of most [if not all] of James Finley and
Laura Etta (Wheeler) Couch's children. I also have information
regarding Laura Etta Wheeler, her siblings and her ancestors if you know
of anyone who may be interested. My Mother attended the 99th
birthday/reunion party for "Uncle Finn" [as she knew him] back in 1954.
She stated that he was unable to attend the party [due to ill health?].
I would appreciate any help you may be willing to give. Thank you so
much for reading.
My Mother attended all of the Couch family reunions in Speed, Indiana from
1953 or 1954 on. She has pictures that may be of interest to the Couch
family. I will attempt to scan these pictures and have her identify each
individual. This project may take a while but for anyone interested
I will be willing to share these digital images.
