Joel Bales (1849- ), Randolph County, Indiana

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

Joel Bales (1849-    ) was the son of Amer Jackson and Harriett (Higginbotham) Bales.  His marriage to Mary C. Abbott on March 21, 1871 in Randolph County, Indiana was found in the database.  Prior to this find, I did not have the date or place of their marriage.

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 14 Aug 2013), Joel F Bales and Mary C Abbott, 1871.
Joel was my maternal fifth cousin five times removed.  Our common ancestors are John Beals and Mary Clayton.  Nothing further is known of Joel and Mary's family at this time.
