All genealogy research contain errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My research of Indiana and Ohio families comes from conversations with relatives, copied scrapbooks, library research, online records, courthouse visits, and multiple visits to final resting places on family farms and cemeteries. Families in other states rely mostly on the research of others. If you have additional information on any families, corrections, photos, or anything to add to the history of our families, please leave a Comment in my Guest book, join my Follis Families on Facebook page, or send an Email. Read Dick Eastman's discussion of Unverified Data.

The American Chestnut tree was the dominant tree of the eastern forest, 1 of every 4 trees was a chestnut until blight struck in the early 1900's. Many animals depended on the chestnuts for food. Susan Freinkel wrote a book in 2007 American Chestnut: The Life, Death, and Rebirth of a Perfect Tree. New Hope for the American Chestnut. Since the 1980's science has been attempting to restore the trees as discussed October 20, 2009 in USA Today. About.com discusses its comeback. Wikipedia mentions isolated populations. I saw a few in Wisconsin in 1994. American Chestnut Foundation.
