My great grandfather Harrison Wickliffe

Harrison Wickliffe was my great grandfather.
He was born in South Carrollton, KY on August 20, 1892.
He married Mont VanMeter in 1909 & adopted & care for her son when she died in 1914.
I've heard that at Mont's funeral, he met my Great Grandmother Probia.  His brother Andy introduced them.  They were married that same year.
He worked as a coal miner for 20 years & for the Illinois central railroad another 11 years.
He lived in Kentucky most of his life, but would eventually move to Indianapolis.  He lived at 905 Eugene until he died in 1969
