Family Genealogy

My main genealogical concerns involve just what I call my direct ancestors; grandparents, g-grandparents, gg-grandparents, etc. I am interested in other ancestors primarily in what they can tell me about my direct ancestors. But once in awhile I find an non-direct ancestor that has special meaning. This applies to Doctor C.G. Dick. I live in Elwood, Indiana. One day while glancing through a book on Madison and Hamilton County Biographies I caught the the name of a Hercules Young. I have a gggggg-grandfather by that name and he also had a grandson by that name. I found that the grandson, brother to my two gggg-grandfathers, had a daughter that married a Samuel C. Dick. They had a son by the name of Charles G. Dick. He became a doctor and somehow ended up living and practicing medicine in Elwood for his entire career. The home he lived in was just half dozen blocks from the house I grew up in. To add more to the conincidence as a child and teenager he grew up in Winona County, Minnesota which is just a couple of counties away from where my parents grew up.
