Madison H Finchum correction

Surnames: Finchum, Fishel
I've seen some incorrect references to my late grandfather, Madison H Finchum, born Jan 17, 1916, and died May 8, 1980 in Indiana. He never married an Amy Fishel. They appear to have applied for a marriage license in 1936, but if you read the bottom of the application, they never followed through with the actual marriage. The wedding information is left blank on the application. As far as we know, his only marriage was to Flornell 'Tilly' Robertson in 1941, and they had one child. Madison's mother was Anna (Finchum) Rhea (1895 - 1989) and his father was Ivan Shake (d. 1979). Anna and Ivan were never married, though she married a Robert Rhea later in life. Madison, Flornell, Anna, and Anna's sister Alma are all buried at Crown Hill Cemetary in Plainfield, Indiana. I hope this helps to correct some misinformation that is floating around out there.
