I am trying to modify a SumIf using "Indirect" to return the the sum of data  that is two rows above the criteria for the sum.   I just can't seem to get it to work.

I'm not sure you want INDIRECT here which returns the values in a range when an address (i.e. "A1:A2") is specified.

Why don't you offset the second reference by two rows, like this

=SUMIF($F$3:$F$22,"t",$D$1:$D$20)

Note that the F column starts at F3, while the D column starts at D1

Enclose the range in double quotes, i.e.
=SUMIF($F$3:$F$22,"t",INDIRECT("$E$1:$E$20"))

Had to split the points, because both solutions worked.
