    Hello. I am searching for photos and information about the following surnames: Redick, Cleveland, Mowbray. My dad and his parents and grandparents lived in Index. He was born in 1919 and name was Arthur Redick. His sister was Dorothy.
    Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    Thank you.
    Diane
