After posting the Family Milestone post for April 25th, I was surprised to find that I didn't have more information on Christian EASTERDAY, who married my paternal 2nd-great grandaunt, Barbara Helen HALEY. I didn't have his parentage, nor his death date, and the only family record I had was the 1900 census, when they lived in the 3rd ward of the city of Portland, Jay County, Indiana.
A quick search of Ancestry.com located the death record of Christian on May 21, 1918 in Portland, Jay County, Indiana, as recorded by the W.P.A. in the index of Indiana death records. The record is located in Book CH-2, page 75. Will have to check that out when I next get back to Portland.
