    Excerpts from "Centennial History of Washington County, Indiana, Its People,
    Industries, and Institutions", by Warder W. Stevens, published in 1916 by B.F.
    Bown & Company, Inc. Indianapolis, Indiana.
    "John Redus was but a child when his parents, Aaron Redus and wife, came with
    their family from Virgina to this county, and he grew to manhood on the farm
    on which they settled, about three miles east of Livonia, adjoing the Wright
    farm on the east, and there he married Hulda Wright, who was born there,
    daughter of Asa and Phoebe Wright...
    John Redus had been married twice before his marriage to Hulda Wright, his
    children by his previous unions being Mary... Sarah..., and Samuel. To his
    union with Hulda Wright, three children were born, of whom John M. ... the
    others being Phoebe, living in Oklahoma, widow of Walter A. Wibble, and Howard
    Malcolm, who died at the age of ten years. Following his marriage, John Redus
    moved to what is now known as the Carter farm, just north of the Presbyterian
    Church at Livonia, and it was there that John M. was born. In the fall of
    1860 John Redus sold his farm at Livonia, his wife having died in 1858, and
    moved to the state of Kansas, where he bought a farm of two hundred acres,
    near Iola, Allen County, paying for the same two dollars an acre, and there he
    died in the spring of 1862."
