    A number of years ago I contacted some of the Primleys listed in the obit! My granfater’s cpusin was Seneca Primley and they lievd near each other in the Argos/Plymouth Indiana area. My great grandfather and Seneca’s mother were brother and sister. In our family they told of the Primley’s “fleeing the fire in Wisconson”! Seneca who later became a minister taught my grandfather to chew tobbaco. I have seen a photo of Seneca and his wifw homesteading near Pembine? Wisconson when they were young. I have a reunion photo c1935 – the Indians are easy to pick out. Seneca and grandpa look like brothers! I remember the names of Kamp and Anderson in connection with the extended family.
