Five years later I receive a message.

I had sent a fellow genealogist a message through Ancestry on Sept. 29, 2014, asking about Mabel Story, and 5 years later I receive a message back.
Just a bit of back tracking: 
Mabel Story had a sister Thelma Story who had married a James Meyer. Thelma had been born in Bloomington, Indiana, after marrying James Meyer they moved to Ohio. I had visited the library in Brockville, Indiana, and had some luck finding newspaper articles of her family, but not a whole lot about her. That is where I hit the brick wall and gave up. 
On Jan. 14, 2019, I received a message from Thelma’s great nephew. Thelma’s sister Mabel’s was his great aunt. I finally made time to sit down and find my notes from 2014, what a job. I’m glad to say I found them. I’m sent a message back connecting some of the dots, in hopes that the two of us can figure out this “Story”. I have hope.
