Homer Herschel Beals,(b. 1874) Hamilton County, Indiana

Working today on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at Familysearch.org to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Homer Herschel Beals (b. 1874) was the son of Thomas Elwood Beals and Eliza Matilda Hodgin.  I found the record of his first marriage to Mable Clare Lindley in Hamilton County, Indiana while searching the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at FamilySearch.org.  Prior to searching this database, I didn't have Mabel's maiden name.

Also located Homer's second marriage, at age 80, on August 16, 1954 in Hamilton County, Indiana to Mary Ruth Atkins, age 47, daughter of Fred Atkins and Kate Fryberger.

Not sure on the correct spelling of Homer's middle name, I have from the Beals genealogy as 'Herschel', but these databases have it as 'Herchel'.  Will need to obtain a copy of the original records from Hamilton County and examine.

Homer would be my maternal third cousin four times removed.  Our common ancestors are John and Mary (Carter) Beals.  Have yet to obtain his death information or add any census information to my database.
