      I found Ruth's obituary today at the State Library. Indianapolis Star 24 Sep 1982 Ruth Marie Daniel

      Services for Ruth Marie Forsythe Daniel, 85, Indianapolis, will be held at 10 a.m. Monday in Conkle Lynhurst Funeral Home, where friends may call from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday. She died Wednesday in River


      A native of Edinburgh, Ind., she lived in Indianapolis 70 years and was a member of Ladies Auxiliary Post 64, Lynhurst Baptist Church and Order of the Eastern Star Lynhurst Chapter.

      She was the widow of Loren Daniel. Survivors include three sons, Richard E., Robert L., and Paul F. Daniel, and a daughter, Emily F. Keys.

      The obituary states that she was 85 years old at the time of her death in 1982, which means that she was born around 1897. This would be consistent with the attached Social Security Death Index record. I will show her date of birth as 1 Feb 18
      97 and her date of death as 22 Sep 198

      Thanks for telling me that she was buried at Crown Hill Cemetery. That was the clue that I needed to find the other data.

      Jan:

      With the information that you provided in your e-mail message, I was able to find a little more data.

      According to the Crown Hill Cemetery web site, there are 3 women named Ruth Daniel who are buried in Crown Hill. Their names and dates of burial are:

      (1) Ruth Daniel, buried 14 Jun 1957 in Section 40 lot 326.

      (2) Ruth Jones Daniel, buried 3 Nov 1999 in Section Pine lot D-17.

      (3) Ruth Marie Daniel, buried 27 Sep 1982 in Section 60 lot 373.

      Assuming that Ruth Daniel is indeed buried in Crown Hill, it appears that her date of death was probably a few days before her burial on 27 Sep 1982, rather than 9 Dec 1990. Van Fuller Forsythe and his wife, Emily, are both buried in Section 60 lot 136, so if Ruth is buried with her parents, presumably the Ruth that is the daughter of Van Fuller and Emily is the third Ruth identified above, since her grave location is also within Section 60.

      I had searched at the Indiana State Library a few days ago for an obituary for the Ruth Daniel that died on 9 Dec 1990, but was unsuccessful in my search. According to the Social Security Death Index, there is a record for a Ruth Daniel born on 1 Feb 1897 who died in September 1982 with her last residence identified as Westfield. I will search for an obituary published in September 1982 for Ruth on my next trip to the State Libary, which will probably be sometime next week.

      Let me know if you disagree with my theory that the Ruth Daniel who was the daughter of Van Fuller Forsythe and Emily Goetz Waltz Fuller died in September 1982.

      Finally, Ruth was my second cousin two times removed. I would welcome the opportunity to receive any data that you may have for Ruth and her descendants that you are willing to share. I also assume that your husband is related through the Forsythe line, rather than the Goetz line. However, if the relation is through the Goetz line, I am definitely interested in sharing data regarding the Goetz line.

      We called her son Paul F. Daniel to check the information. Ruth Daniel died in Indianapolis and is buried at Crown Hill Cemetery with her parents.

      This seems to be an odd coincidence of dates. Her name was Ruth, not Anna Ruth, and she never lived anywhere but Indianapolis.

      I found some information recently that I thought would be of interest to y ou.

      While trying to find some data for Ruth Forsythe Daniel, daughter of Van Fuller Forsythe and Emma Goetz Waltz Forsythe, and wife of L. E. Daniel, I found your entry for her on your Oldham database on RootsWeb.com. Your data is consistent with the data shown on the Social Security Death Index record for the Ruth Daniel who was born in Indiana on 28 May 1907 and who died on 9 Dec 1990. However, the California Death Index for that particular Ruth Daniel provides some additional data for Ruth which clearly shows that such Ruth Daniel is not the daughter of Van Fuller Forsythe and Emma Goetz Waltz Forsythe. A copy of the California Death Index record is attached. I thought that you would be interested in this information so that you can update your data for Ruth Forsythe Daniel.
