Ferguson
Joy Kimsey -- Monday, 26 August 2002, at 10:32 a.m.

Thank you so much for your information on Rev Wm F Ferguson. I will add it to what I know about him. I had been looking for the father of Finley C Ferguson for years in Mercer, Warren and McDonough counties and finally ordered a cemetery book from McDonough County and a will Book. And lo and behold there he was with quite a bit of information. I hope you have a great reunion and really enjoy that baby. I have a brand new baby grandaughter and have had such a ball with her. She is about 6 mos old now.

This is what I know about the Wm F Ferguson family. You may use all or any part of this on your site. I would love to find any other descendents.

From McDonough County Illinois Will Book 1 abstracts 1834-1857 pages 1 thru 193 Page 14-15 Will Book 1 page 85-86-87 "Ferguson, W.F. McDonough County Illinois Dated May 5 1852 Probated: April 4 1853 Witnesses: I.W. Ermentrout and W. H. Randolph Executors: Wife and Cyrus Walker, Esq. and Hugh Ervin Cod: dated March 15, 1853 witnesses: James W Matthews and B. R. Westfall Heirs: Wife Abigail M. Ferguson, a house in Monmouth, 100 acres of land in Indiana near Logansport recorded at Crawfordsville, railroad stock in Lafayette and Indianapolis Railroad in hands of James Hogue, Esq of Boone County, Indiana, house in Macomb. Younger children, Finley C., Charlotte, and Helen V. Names of my children now living; Sophronian S Ferguson (Monroe), Bethania C Ferguson (Bailey), Lydia Ann, finley C, Charlotte, Helen V. Mentions "chemical and philosophical appratus in its different parts now to be found in library room of McDonough County College of Trustees of said College."

Page 43 of "McDonough County Illinois Cemeteries Old Macomb, Macomb, Ill" "Ferguson, Rev. William F., d. 15 March 1853 about 49y (no stone) Alex Holmes wrote 7 May 1921--"The Ferguson home was at the end of Calhoun Street, just out of the Corporation.---son Fin and daughter Charlotte lived there into 70s--he was buried in the old Cemetery, west of the Normal, in about the cinter of the burial ground, but Thomas Gilmore told me he did not think there was anyone living that could locate the grave." The long obiturary ( I don't have this as yet) for Dr. Ferguson gave little family information. He was b. in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, but moved to Ohio with his parents at an early age. He studied at Miami College , Oxford, Ohio. In 1838, he was fully ordained in the Presbytery of Madison, Indiana. In the summer of 1848, the family moved to Monmouth, Illinois, and in November 1850, he came to Macomb, as president of the new McDonough College. His will probated 4 April 1853 mentions: to wife Abigail., a house in Monmouth; 100 acres of land near Logansport, Indiana, recorded at Crawfords ville; stock in Lafayette and Indianapolis Railroad; and a house in Macomb. Younger children Finley C , Charlotte, and Helen V., and children now living: Sophronia S Ferguson Monroe, Bethania C Ferguson Bailey, Lydia Ann, Fin, Charlotte, and Helen were named."

Bio Rev William F Ferguson (the F may stand for Finley) was born 1803 Indiana County, Pa and died 15 Mar 1853 Macomb, McDonough County, Illinois. He married about 1830 Ohio (In the History of Butler Co Ohio, 1882 I found "March 25 1829 William F Ferguson was appointed principal of the grammer school at a salary of $400.--part of Miami college) So he probably was still living there when he married Abigail M about 1830. The last time I find Abigail in the records is the 1870 census for McDonough County where she (52) and Helen (19) are living with Finley and is wife Matilda. At this time it says she was born in NY in 1818. Finley moves to York Co,Nebraska about 1875. Abigail and Helen are not with him in 1880.She may be living with a daughter at this time. William F Ferguson got his degree at Miami College inOxford, Butler County, Ohio and later he was ordained at the Presbytery of Madison Indiana. They later lived in Boone Co, Ind and Logansport. Moved to Monmouth 1848 and in November of 1850 moved to Macomb and became President of the new McDonough Co College. Children: 1.Sophronia S b. c. 1832 Oh or Ind m. Unknown Monroe (I wonder if the Rev R S Monroe who marries the other children is Sophronia's husband) 2. Lydia Ann b. c. 1834 Ind m. John M Brown of Knox Co 10 Aug 1852 Warren Co, Illinois 3. Bethenia C. b. c. 1836 Ind, m. William Bailey 22 Mar 1852 Warren Co, Illinois 4. Mary b. 1839, d. 12 Dec 1851 Warren Co, Illinois 5. Finley Crow b. 19 Dec 1839 Thorntown, Boone Co, Ind, d. 10 Jun 1905 Haigler, Dundy County Nebraska, m. Matilda Jane Cush 8 Apr 1869 McDonough Co, Illinois She was b. 14 May 1850 Pa and d. 31 Dec 1922 Gardena Calif. 6. Charlotte A b. c. 1844 Ind, m. Charles S Bebb January 23 1861 McDonough co Illinois 7. Salome b. Jan 1849 Warren Co, Illinois d. Mar 15 1852 Warren Co, Illinois 8. Helen V b. c. 1851 Warren Co, Illinois d. aft 1870

In the 1860 census of Mercer Co, in the home of James M Brown(brother in law) and Lydia, we find Finley (19) And Charlotte (16)

I have not found Helen and Abigail in 1860 as yet. I also have not found the 1850 census for Warren Co as yet.

Finley C Ferguson joins the civil war from Ionia, Illinois. He goes in as a Lt and comes out as a Captain. He was in the Company C, 11th Illinois Cavalry. He later receives a military pension. Finley and Matilda have three children born in McDonough Co, Illinois. Eugene Clinton Ferguson, Alford H, and Nellie E.

bob moore -- Friday, 6 September 2002, at 6:05 p.m.

hi Folks In the bio of John Peck Terpening it notes that his grandfather Peter aka Petrus Terpening was a soldier in the Revolution. Has anyone any proof of this? I am of the opinion Petrus was in Ulster County until the end of Revolution when he moved to Saratoga County. I doubt if he was in the revolution as he had a lot of children to support. I am a descendant of Christiana, youngest daughter and glad to exchange info with any of Petrus'descendants

Hi, I'm the county cordinator for this page. I've been delayed in getting information on the net. I have more pages going up this weekend. In the phone book there isn't a Point Pleasant Cemetery but there is an address for a Point Pleasant Township Shed.

Armstrongs in Knox County
John D. Armstrong -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 4:47 a.m.

Hi John,

Your John C. Armstrong was brother to Joseph B. Armstrong that I have written up the Pictorial and Biographical Album of Knox County of 1899 or somewhere in there. Your John C. Went to Jackson County, Kansas. I don't know when or when he came back. While I was at the Library some man kept bugging me about helping him find information on his relatives and it's all right there if he just look. He wants to look on the net for it and sometimes that is not always correct. Plus, he took the paper I had printed out from you email and didn't give it back to me. So, I started looking through my file book I take with me and low and behold there is an old email I'd printed out and you gave me the information.

Nellie C buried in the cemetery is a wife of an Armstrong or a daughter. The Mary buried there is also a daughter or wife haven't quite figured it out as of yet.

Richard had a will . 1874 the will had Joseph B. Armstrong as the adminstrator or executor. I will check with the Court house and try and get you a copy of it. Was trying to find orbits for you but no luck as of yet. Will try again. The man at the library was very persistant until I had Kate come back and sit with me. I went there to work not to yak with somebody and I just hate it when they can't take a hint.

Also, found you may have a relative still in Oneida, IL. A James Richard Poque goes back to Richard Armstrong and Mary. He is our of daughter Mary Elizabeth Armstrong who married James Van R. Carley to James Mertille Carley to Ruth Temple Carley Then I'm not sure will snail you a copy of this also. The ladies address on the page is Joan Eddy Pogue, PO Box 35, Oneida, IL. I will try and call and also give her your snail address and if she has the net your email. Bet you would like to correspond with her. Mary Elizabeth Armstrong would of been your grandfather's sister.

Aren't you excited. Hope so and will get everything in the mail to you tomarrow by prioity mail and anything else I can come with. Have a Happy evening. I have to go to bed cuz my daughter is in bed and she won't go to sleep unless I'm in there. So, yak with ya later. But I couldn't wait for her to fall asleep to let you know.

Love,

Foxie

Dear Foxie,

Thank you so much for doing the lookup for me on the Armstrongs. I certainly do appreciate your time and efforts to help me out. The information you provided hits the nail square on the head and provides me many answers. The one particular question I had in mind was the cemetery where my folks were buried and you provided that valuable information. For some unknown reason, I was unable to find out where they were buried for quite a number of years. In fact, some people in Galesburg did some lookups for me about two years ago and I was told no records existed. I'm glad I persisted in my efforts because your assistance made all the difference in the world.

Thanks so much again!!!

Alexander Anthony & Westfall Cemetery a sad tale
JIM STREETER -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 4:56 a.m.

Hi Foxie, I received your priority package in the mail today. I want to THANK YOU very much for going out of your way on that. The Galesburg Library must not have a complete list of all those buried at this cemetery. I have found my G-G- Grandfather and Grandmother there. They are at: Plot: Sect. 2 Lot 38 Plot 7-9 . Wherever that is.

I placed the info with a picture of him at:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=anthony&GSfn=alex&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=5816112&

If you copy and paste this into your browser, you can see what I"ve been digging into.

There is an interesting story about my G-G-Grandmother that is buried there.

This story was first told to my Grandmother by her Aunt. Her Aunt's name was Carrie Louisa Anthony.

Her Father, Alexander Anthony, sold their farm in Warren County shortly after the Civil War, and they moved to Knox County. He purchased a farm adjacent to what is now Westfall Cemetery. In March of 1872, Alex's 1st wife passed away. He remarried Sophia Essex on Christmas Day 1873. Together they had 5 children, the youngest being Carrie. One of the neighbors to them always wanted to purchase their farm. Alex would not sell it. He told his wife, Sophia, never to sell the farm. That it was a good farm and would always serve them well. Alex died on March 9th, 1889. Again the neighbors offered to purchase the farm, but Sophia would not sell. Somehow she managed to support her children, and did not remarry. On the 10th of July 1890 she applied for a widow's pension as Alex had served with the 83rd ILL INF in the Civil War. Fourteen days later, on the morning of the 24th, five year old Carrie tried to wake her mother, but she would not wake. She had died in her sleep. According to Carrie, the family beleived that Sophia was poisoned by the neighbor with a glass of Lemonade or Ice tea. She was the only one that had drank it. The five children ended up under the guardianship of their older half-brother ( from Alex's first marriage). That I found in the Knox Co. Courthouse records. He lived in Normal, ILL. The children were moved there. An old newspaper clipping, that was forwarded to me, of Sophia's obituary tells that she had died in her sleep and that there would most likely be an inquest into her death. I do not know if one was ever done. If I ever get down to Galesburg, I would like to do some digging around to see if any of these type records survive to find out the outcome. With today's technology it would be quite easy to find out if she was poisoned. I wonder if the local Medical Collage needs a project? Or if the local law has records that go back that far for unsolved murders. I guess this e-mail is long enough, and I don't want to bore you, but I just like to share my stories. Do you know anyone at the library that belongs to the local History or Genealogical Societies? Maybe they would be interested in this little tidbit of local history. Might make a neat little story for the local paper. Now I'm rambling--- OKay! Again, I want to thank you for your kindness!

Sincerely, Jim Streeter

Goodridge/alias Smith and Abby Nichols
Barbara Goodridge -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 5:11 a.m.

Dear Foxie, Thank you so much for looking for the marriage of Wm. Goodridge alias Smith & Abby Ann Nichols. Too bad that he is not in the biography but he moved in 1882 before the biography of the county was written. He only lived there from perhaps 1856 until 1882. I wonder if Jefferson Nichols, Abby's father would have been listed as I found him in Ellison, Ill. I was told by an older Smith relative that there is a mention of this Wm Goodridge Smith in the History of Crawford & Sac Conty Iowa biography book. He is supposed to be a scroundrel as he was marriad to Jane A Dawson back in 1845 and they had a child in 1854 and then he is with Abby Nichols who had his child Edward in 1856. Family tradition says that the following children were born to Wm. Smith and Abby Ann Nichols Smith and we think they were all born in in Warren Co., Illinois. I found a Wm Smith in the census index near Jefferson Nichols in Ellison, Ill in Warren County. Edward Smith b 5 sep 1856 Emma or Emeline Smith b 28 Nov 1860 Clara J Smith b 24 Feb 1864 John Albert Smith b 20 Oct 1866 Annie Smith b 26 Sep 1869 Lydia Woodmansie Smith b 21 Aug 1872 Fredrick Jefferson b 8 Nov 1876 in 1882 the family sold the farm, blacksmith shop in or near Roseville and moved to Coon's Grove near Denison Iowa. Wm Smith & Abby Smich are buried at Denison Cem., IA In Crawford Co, Iowa there lived a brother or half brother of William N. Goodridge named Oscar Goodridge who had a daughter named Una. Is any of this documented or did all the birth records burn in a fire at the Roseville Ct. House as I was told? Thank you for the look up of their marriage. I now know to look elsewhere for the marriage records. Thank you, Barbara Goodridge PS I like your pun about lift info from heavy books.

Descendants of Abraham and Deborah Ostrander Terps
Jo Terp -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 5:17 a.m.

Hi Foxy, I couldn't get anything on your download. What is it? My file is pretty much on rootsweb. See if you can get it and tell me, o.k.? Who is Robert Moore and Frank Terpening? Is Robert in New York? Which Petrus are you referring to? Since you and I have conversed before, I believe you know that I am from the Abraham and Deborah Ostrander Terps, through David 1879 and Amanda Simmons and then Abraham who moved from Ulster Co. to Chemung Co. married Hannah Haines and had about 12 kids, one being my William Arthur, my great grandfather. My grandfather Cecil knew that Terps lived in Illinois but I didn't follow it up then (1965). I met Beulah Terpening Cruthis in the late 80's and went to see her in 1990. She has since passed away. She was from Jesse Terp in Green and Kane Co. ILL. I have met Gilbert King Terpening, who lived in Sun City, Phoenix AZ. His people were from your end of ILL if I remember right. Also, Howard Terpning the artist, lives here in Tucson also. I spoke with him on the phone years ago before his paintings sold for 1/2 a million. I believe his folks also came from No. ILL. I will try downloading your file again. Jo in Tucson

Pearson/Nelson Families of Knox County

Hi Foxie,

I finally got my family tree on line at Roots Web.com. The site should be up tomorrow. If you have time take a look at it and let me know if you can find the connection for our families. I know you are busy, I'm in no hurry. My husband, Ralph, just got out of the hospital. He had an angioplasty done and another stent put in, that makes four, he doing pretty good. Keep in touch.

Hi LuAnn, My husband is related to the Nelson's through his mother and father. Arthur Nelson was the son of Bert A. Nelson 1857-1942 who was married to Augusta Louise Peterson. Bert and Augusta had ArthurEdwin Nelson, Ronald's grandfather and Dorothy and Dwayne's father. They had a daughter Lillian Rosalie Nelson who married Floide Baumgartner, a daughter Freda Madelia Nelson who married Nels Pearson and a daughter Hilma Lorena Nelson who married a William Stark. The Starks had a rough life and I don't think there are any of them left. I'd have to look it up.

Nels Anderson and Charstine Pierson who lived in Sweden was the beginning's of it all. They had these children: Anna Anderson Anderson Johnson 1845-1931 Bengst 1847-1925 Pete A. Nelson 1847-1931 twin to Bengst John Nelson 1850-1939 married Christine Hanson December 20, 1876 Christine Hanson 1850-1928 Bert a. Nelson 1857-19423

I have some more and will get it to you later. There are a bunch of Pearson's uner Freda Madelia Nelson Pearson born January 10, 1888, and died August 30, 1977 she married Nels Pearson February 3, 1910. Is your husband descended from her? Well, I gotta go am working on my Terpening line and have alot to do before we have our reunion in September plus, have been helping out alot of people on the internet who want information from IL in the counties where I live close to which is Knox, Warren, Henry, Stark. Keeps me pretty busy with everything else. Will get back to you. Keep in touch. If you don't hear from me then pull my chain. I go by Foxie Hagerty on the net.

Joseph W. Gamel of Knox County, IL Help!
Leona Gamel-Gilpatrick -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 5:34 a.m.

Hi Foxie

I have an ancestor Joseph W. Gamel born 1792 in N.Y. and died 1863 Rio, Knox County, Illinois, buried in Rio Cemetery. I was wondering if you could give me a snail mail or e-mail address where I could write to try and get his exact date of death? Probate or estate records, obituary, funeral homes, hospital? Since I don't have the exact date of death it is difficult to get documentation. Perhaps the address to the Rio Cemetery. His first wife was Isabel Gillis and second wife was Sarah ? (maybe Talmage) per census records. He is my major brick wall, I have been trying to locate who his parents were with not much success.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Pam Prime -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 5:38 a.m.

I notice your family migration route & mine was similar. The following is some of our research:

I am researching Charles Thomas Cross. He was born in Amber, New York in 1832. He moved with his family to Illinois when he was 9 years old. I found where he had married twice in Warren Co, Illinois. I have also found a connection of sorts to a George Bolivar Cross & he came from NY to Warren Co & Knox Co, Illinois.

Do you have any idea why New York to Illinois & Warren & Knox counties in particular? My ancestors seem to have followed a similar pattern.

Hi Foxie

Thank you so much for your kind offer to help. Will this cemetery listing show his actual date of death? I know that Joseph (W) Gamel tombstone at the Rio Cemetery states b:1792 d:1863, it is also possible that George Gamel is also buried there (I'm not sure tho). Would there be any listings at the library of estate records for Joseph, I really don't know if there is an obituary on him or not. I know what hard work it is to find this information at the library, do they have a genealogy section that does look ups? I really appreciate your offer to get the cemetery records for me. I am also going to contact the Dutch-Coloney at rootsweb per your suggestion.

Ken Smith has posted my family history on Ancestry.com and I believe also on rootsweb, he is a distant cousin that I found on the net. In the following outline the Wood family is his line and he is my source for the Wood line. I got the other information from a family bible and other relatives.

Hi Leona, I'll do better than better than that. I can get you a copy of the Rio Cemetery in Rio Twp, IL, Knox Co., IL. It will be at the Library in Galesburg and I'm only 15 minutes away. Email me your snail address and it will be 15cents a copy as that is what I will have to pay for the copy of the cemetery. And then $3.85 for the mailing of it, I always snail it by priority to make sure it gets to where it should go. Give me a few days as I'm taking my mother to radition treatments in Galesburg everyday. She had breast cancer. She survives but it's been one doctor after another here lately and my young daughter who is 9 will be going to school here shortly and have to get her ready for school.

Are you sure he's bruried in the Rio Cemetery. Also, post a message on the Dutch-Coloney Rootwebb query board. There are alot of people out there who know alot about history of people from NY and if they don't they love to find out where they are from and what not. I get from them all of the time. Post who he was and a date of birth if you have it. He was probably married the first time in NY, and came here with his family. Joseph died 10 years after the organization of the Rio Township. Will check for you and let you know. If you have any dates on any of them let me know as every info helps in determing who they were and where they ended up at.

Plus, I've got to get busy on my webpages that I just started. It's only been 2 weeks that I got into it. But I like it and like helping other people out. You have a Great Day and I'll be in Touch.

Laird/Curry/Wilks/ of Knox & Henry Counties in IL
lucy -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 6:10 a.m.

Hi Foxie,

Yes, I think we may have corresponded. I have never been able to find much about my Curry's. I am sure the ones in Wataga are related to me. Samuel Laird and his wife Martha Curry first appeared in Franklin County, PA, about 1800. Here is an outline of the first two generations:

1 Samuel Laird 1776 - 1845 b: June 24, 1776 in Ireland d: June 23, 1845 in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania Burial: Upper Path Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Spring Run, Pennsylvania .. +Martha Curry 1776 - 1807 b: August 10, 1776 in Ireland m: November 06, 1796 d: June 06, 1807 in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania ... 2 Catherine Laird 1798 - b: April 01, 1798 d: in Ohio ....... +David Rutherford m: September 09, 1828 in Newville, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania ... 2 Matthew Laird 1800 - 1867 b: September 05, 1800 in Franklin Co., Pennsylvania d: June 18, 1867 in Waterloo, Juniata Co., Pennylvania ....... +Isabella McMullen 1801 - 1884 b: April 05, 1801 in Pennsylvania m: December 1825 in Path Valley, Franklin County, Pennsylvania d: March 25, 1884 in Wataga, Knox Co., Illinois ... 2 Mary Laird 1803 - 1823 b: April 13, 1803 in Pennsylvania d: November 16, 1823 in Pennsylvania ... 2 Elizabeth Laird 1805 - 1866 b: February 08, 1805 in Pennsylvania d: May 22, 1866 ....... +William ?? m: March 1823 *2nd Wife of Samuel Laird: .. +Elizabeth Campbell - 1845 b: in Virginia m: November 12, 1807 d: Aft.

A. Fiester m: January 06, 1840 in Path Valley, Franklin County, Pennsylvania ... 2 John Laird 1817 - 1885 b: June 05, 1817 in Pennsylvania d: 1885 in Woodhull, Henry Co., Illinois ....... +Mary Ragan 1821 - 1884 b: 1821 in Pennsylvania m: March 18, 1840 in Path Valley, Franklin County, Pennsylvania d: November 11, 1884 in Woodhull, Henry Co., Illinois ... 2 James Laird 1820 - 1882 b: February 14, 1820 in Pennsylvania d: October 22, 1882 ... 2 Margaret Laird 1822 - 1824 b: February 12, 1822 in Pennsylvania d: November 16, 1824 in Pennsylvania ... 2 Robert Laird 1824 - 1839 b: January 09, 1824 in Pennsylvania d: August 22, 1839 Burial: Upper Path Valley Presybterian Church Cemetery, Spring Run, Pennsylvania ... 2 Unknown Name Laird 1826 - 1846 b: March 12, 1826 in Pennsylvania d: March 31, 1846 in Kansas ....... +J.

Kennedy ... 2 Robert Laird 1828 - 1857 b: January 14, 1828 in Pennsylvania d: March 19, 1857 ....... +Martha Johnson m: March 18, 1851 ... 2 Mary Laird 1830 - 1870 b: September 28, 1830 in Pennsylvania d: February 06, 1870 ....... +David Davis m: May 31, 1849

Much of this information was from work done by a relative about 1930 or earlier. I also have this Curry information from Wataga. I don't know how John William Curry is related, but I feel sure he is. I am also related to his wife, Bertha Jane Wilks.

1 John William Curry 1875 - 1955 b: 1875 in Wataga, Knox County, Illinois d: 1955 in Wataga, Knox County, Illinois Burial: Wataga Cemetery, Wataga, Illinois .. +Bertha Jane Wilks 1876 - 1952 b: June 26, 1876 in Galva, Knox County, Illinois m: April 02, 1896 in Wataga, Knox County, Illinois d: January 06, 1952 in Wataga, Knox County, Illinois Burial: Wataga Cemetery, Wataga, Illinois ... 2 Bernie William Curry 1897 - 1973 b: September 1897 in Wataga, Knox County, Illinois d: Abt. 1973 Burial: Wataga Cemetery, Wataga, Illinois ....... +Edith Irene Unknown 1896 - 1977 b: Abt. 1896 d: Abt. 1977 Burial: Wataga Cemetery, Wataga, Illinois ... 2 Lester Curry

I do have more information on the Laird line, but this is all of the Curry info. Samuel Laird is buried at the Upper Path Valley Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Spring Run, PA. I have a picture of his stone. There are no stones for his two wives, but I am told there is room on each side of him where they might be buried.

I hope this helps.

Salle/Terpening of Warren County, IL
Pam in Arizona -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 6:29 a.m.

Hi Foxie and greetings from Arizona:

My name is Pam and I am the great great granddaughter of Mary Lucinda Sallee Carlson who was born in Warren County, Illinois on April 8th, 1857. I noticed you have posted queries on the genealogy boards about the Terpening family and hoped you might be able to help me with a question I have.

I have in my possession an autograph book that belonged to my great great grandmother. In it are the autographs of five people with the last name Terpening. One of the autographs is signed "Cousin Alice Terpening". I'm trying to figure out the connection between the Terpening and Sallee families. I know that Mary Sallee Carlson's parents (Lucinda Goodell Sallee & Robert Sallee) are both buried in the Terpening Cemetery in Kelly, Illinois but have yet to find a "family" connection. I was hoping you might have some more information for me.

The other Terpening names and the dates they signed are:

Sarah Terpening - 8-31-1883 - Galesburg, Illinois Martha Terpening - 2-19-1881 - Utah, Illinois M. J. Terpening - 7-19-1881 Mollie (or Millie - hard to read) Terpening - 7-18-1881 Cousin Alice Terpening - 6-11-1882

Thanks for your help! Pam in Arizona PAMJD@aol.com

My great grandfather who married Juliet was Benjamin Franklin Dodson . My great great grandfather Ezekiel Dodson married , second, Catherine Terpening German in Greene Co. Illinois.I have a copy of the license for Ezekiel and Catherine. I also have a copy of marriage license for another daughter of David and Amanda, Emily and James Clark , also from Greene Co.

LUCAS TERPENING'S WILL
Foxie Hagerty -- Tuesday, 1 April 2003, at 6:56 a.m.

LUCAS TERPENING'S WILL AS EMAILED TO ME FROM Fred Griffin; 6645 SW 204th Ave, Aloha, OR 97007; (503) 642-4569 fred.griffin@verizon.net

Lucas Terpening's Probate Records Feb 2002

The following is a transcription of the probate record on file for Lucas Terpening (1777-1842) of Ira, Cayuga County, New York. The copy used as the source for this transcription was a photocopy made from a microfilmed version of the record. The original record appears to have been hand written by a Surrogate Court official ( I think Lewis Slocum is the likely suspect) probably from the original court documents and original Will. There are several words that are illegible and/or may have been incorrectly transcribed. I believe that none of these translation problems occur where information of genealogical value appears.

Instead of the word 'and', the written form of '&' in most cases appears in the document. Punctuation is sporadic. Frequently, the use of '-' or '_' appears in place of normal punctuation.

The surname appears as Turpenning in the first two instances of the name. The name appears as Terpening subsequently.

Thanks to Ivy for giving me a copy of the record and to Len for helping with deciphering some of the words.

The index for Cayuga County wills available at http://www.sampubco.com/ny/nycayuga7.htm lists this will as TERPENING, LUCAS IRA 6-E-347

Dear Foxie,

What a nice person you are. Your information is so appreciated; my family wasn't even sure there was a Roseville, IL-town names have just been sort of hinted at on one side of our family and I was told by one member that Roseville didn't exist anymore. I took a shot at it.

My great great grandmother's name was Mary Nichols Ray. We think she died in 1934 and the report is that the funeral was in Roseville. My Aunt ,who gave me this information, recalls she was about 12 years old at the time. Her father went back for his mother's funeral and it was the first time my Aunt had even heard about her grandmother. My great grandfather's name was Andrew Jackson Ray, and we have no information on him at all-no date or place of birth or death, so we thought maybe Mary Nichols Ray's obituary, if there was one, would help give us some leads.

I will try the resources you provided and thank you again for your help. I hope you love what you're doing because I find it very exciting to hook up with people who know "stuff"-they are such a wonderful resource and I'm pleased you're out there.

Sincerely

Karen Head

>>> Foxie Hagerty 09/27/03 09:50AM >>> Hi, Roseville is north of Monmouth, IL, which is Warren County, IL, county seat. You neglected to give a name. I have some resources here at that I can look under. Also, Roseville has a newspaper at this email address: http://www.eaglepublications.com/roseville.html

This is for the Monmouth Daile Atlas. http://www.reviewatlas.com/

I've emailed the person in charge of the orbits at the Review Atlas and have always received an answer to my orbit and the orbituary for the person I'm seeking. I don't know if they would do one for that far back or not. you might want to check with the IL Historical Library at this address http://www.state.il.us/hpa/lib/ishlgen.htm It's just a dollar per orbit with a self addressed stamped envelope to receive your orbit back. Very reasonable. hope this helps and if you want to give me some information on her I'd gladly see what I have in my files here at home. I've just updated my links for my site and will upload it sometime this week end. I am redoing my site and haven't gotten everything back to where it is suppose to be. Thanks for emailing me and have a good day. Foxie

Confederate Soldiers!!!!!
Gale F. Red -- Saturday, 14 February 2004, at 8:47 a.m.

My name is Gale Red, and I am the Commander of the Illinois Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. We are trying to find all the graves of known Confederate veterans who are buried in Illinois. So far, over 12,000 men have been found, most (about 11,500) are buried in the five national cemeteries at Alton, Camp Butler, Rock Island, Oakwoods (Chicago), and Mound City. However, we have found more than 500 so far scatterd in almost all counties of IL.

So far, we have found a few of our veterans in Knox County, but think it is possible someone will know of some. They are: KNOX COUNTY:

Knoxville Cemetery, Knoxville, IL: GOULD, H.A., Pvt., Co. A, Brooks’ Battalion Conf. Reg. Infantry, CSA

Maquon Cemetery, Maquon, IL: WELLES, J.L., , Army, Conf., d. 1903, Old Sec.

We are hoping to find the graves, indentify the indivuals, collect biographical and service information on them, and eventually be able to place military markers on all the graves of those who don't have them. We would also like to perform memorial ceremonies for them if we can find living descendants who are interested. As you can imahgine, this is a very large task. If you know of any Confederate veterans buried anywhere in the state, please contact me with whatever information you can provide. We will be very grateful for any assistance in trying to find and honor these soldiers.

Mathew McDowell of ???
David & Suzanne Fuller -- Saturday, 14 February 2004, at 9:18 a.m.

Foxie,

Thanks for the info posted this afternoon. Below I've attached what I know about Mathew ( or Matthew). I am looking for Matthew; family information indicated he was Mathew, the son of James & Sarah McDowell. As the info below will show, I'm pretty sure that Matthew ( 2 t's) is not the same as Mathew H, the son of James and Sarah.

I appreciate your efforts to help me pin this down!

Dave

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WHO IS MATTHEW MCDOWELL

Matthew McDowell is the father of Effie Ann McDowell, the mother of Samuel C. Hopkins. Family information indicates he lived from about 1822 until 1884, and was the son of James (1790-1836) and Sarah Brandon McDowell (1793-1855). We know from James’ will that he had a son “Matthew H”; the will also lists other children.

A paper of family information gives a few details of his life, mainly taken from census records. Further study of those records, however, leads to some as-yet unanswered questions. We are left with questions as to who ( which Mathew) is the father of Effie Ann.

The family records quote from the 1850 and 1880 Census. Below is the information from the 1850 Census, copied from the Internet, which agrees with what is on the family paper.

1850 Census, Wolf Creek Township, Mercer Co., PA[1]

Schedule No. 34, Frame No. 881, Enumeration Date 26 Oct 1850 40 249 253 McDOWELL, Sarah 56 F 41 249 253 McDOWELL, Sarah 28 F 42 249 253 McDOWELL, Thomas 25 M Farmer 1 249 253 McDOWELL, James 24 M 2 249 253 McDOWELL, Nancy 20 F 3 249 253 McDOWELL, Amanda 18 F 4 249 253 BRANDEN, Sarah Jane 3 F 5 250 254 McDOWELL, Mathew H. 27 M Farmer 6 250 254 McDOWELL, Melinda 20 F

The “249” and “250” are the “dwelling number” and the “253” and “254” are the “family number. We see that Sarah, by 1850 a widow, lived with several of her children, and next door lived Mathew H. and his wife Melinda.

The family paper also gives information from the 1880 Census as follows:

1880 Census Wolf Creek-Venango Co.

Matthew McDowell 58

Frances(Wife of Matthew) 27

children

Ella 6

Effie Ann 2

Marie 1

The paper goes onto say “Later had 3 more children

Lamont (9-24-1884 -- 2/13/?)

Maud Millicent

George Washington

Again, family information indicates that Frances’ maiden name was Allen. No information on her is know before this entry. Who were her parents?

I have not been able to verify the Matthew/Francis information as I do not have a copy of the original census information, nor could I find it on the web: the Mormon site has the 1880 census on line, and they are not listed in Wolf Creek, Mercer Co. Venango Co. does not have a Wolf Creek township listed, but a list of all the McDowells in the County contained no Matthew or Frances.

That is all the original information I had. I hope some of the other family members have more, because what I have found results in questioning if Matthew, the father of Effie Ann, is the same Matthew who was the son of James.

For reasons that will become apparent below, I think we are looking at two different people. I will call them the Illinois Mathew (one t) and the Pennsylvania Matthew (two t’s). Mathew is almost certainly the son of James and Sarah; Matthew, the father of Effie Ann is a mystery.

Mathew of Illinois

The following is an 1880 census record from Knox County Illinois:

Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace

Mathew H. MCDOWELL Self M Male W 57 PA Farmer PA PA

Melinda MCDOWELL Wife M Female W 49 PA Keeping House PA PA

Asher MCDOWELL Son S Male W 23 IL Working Out PA PA

Caroline MCDOWELL Dau S Female W 21 IL At Home PA PA

Orin MCDOWELL Son S Male W 18 IL At Home PA PA

Owen MCDOWELL Son S Male W 18 IL At Home PA PA

Anna MCDOWELL Dau S Female W 14 IL At School PA PA

Orpha MCDOWELL Dau S Female W 12 IL At School PA PA

Further research revealed the following 1860 Census records:

Victoria, Knox, Co, IL , June 11, 1860

M.H. McDowell 37, PA, farm laborer Melinda, 31, PA Male, name can't read, 9, PA (might say James) Moses, 8, PA John, 6, PA Asher, 4, IL Mariah, 2, IL

From this we conclude that Mathew H and Melinda moved to Illinois sometime around 1855 ( between the birth of John and Asher), were there in 1860 and 1880. But if they were there in 1880 – with Melinda still married to Mathew, could this be the same Matthew, married to Frances in the family paper?

Why do I think that the Mathew H of 1850 is the same as the Mathew H of Knox County? Besides the ages, places of birth, and wife’s name there is the following:

The web page for Henry Co, Illinois gives excerpts from a history of the county as follows:[2]

On the 5th of March, 1884, Mr. Miller was united in marriage to Miss Harriet McDowell, a daughter of William and Caroline (McCoy) McDowell. By birth and ancestry Mrs. Miller belongs to Pennsylvania. Her paternal grandfather, James McDowell, was a native of that state, followed farming, and was a soldier in the War of 1812. He married Miss Sarah Brandon and they had the following children: William B., Jane, Nancy, Henderson, Thomas, Sarah, David and James…. Mrs. Miller's parents were born in Pennsylvania and came to Illinois in 1876, taking up their residence near Victoria, Knox County.

That is, Mathew H’s brother William moved to Knox County in 1876. Note that “Mathew” is not listed as a son… but “Henderson” is. Could that be what the H stands for? Did William move there to be near his brother?

The 1880 Knox Co. census gives:

Household:

Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace

William B. MCDOWELL Self M Male W 62 PA Farmer PA PA

M C. MCDOWELL Wife M Female W 52 PA Keeps House PA PA

D. C. MCDOWELL Son S Male W 27 PA Works Out PA PA

H. E. MCDOWELL Dau S Female W 21 PA At Home PA PA

William W. MCDOWELL Son S Male W 19 PA Works Out PA PA

Edwin MCDOWELL Son S Male W 16 PA At Home PA PA

Eva C. MCDOWELL Dau S Female W 14 PA At School PA PA

Thomas B. MCDOWELL Brother S Male W 56 PA Helping About PA PA

Note brother Thomas is there as well.

Did Mathew go to Illinois to occupy his mother’s land? It needs to be noted that (another, the same?) Sarah McDowell also bought land in 1839, one piece of which was contiguous with the land above. This Sarah was a resident of Livingston Co[4] at the time. I have no records of our Sarah buying land in 1839. I do not know if this is the same Sarah, but one has to wonder…:

MCDOWELL SARAH E2NE 22 27N 06E 3 05/06/1839 LIVINGSTON

MCDOWELL SARAH SW 14 27N 06E 3 05/06/1839 LIVINGSTON

MCDOWELL SARAH SENW 14 27N 06E 3 02/04/1853 LIVINGSTON

The Pennsylvania Matthew

Now, recalling that Frances’s maiden name is purported to be Allen (how do we know that?)

The Venanago Co RootsWeb page, under the 1870 census, has the following entry: [5]

1870 CENSUS, SANDYCREEK TWP. ROLL # 1460

198 - McDOWELL, M.A. - age 45, farmer; Augusta J. 17 (male); Francis 17 (female); Melvina ALLEN 21.

Wow! M. McDowell – born about 1825, Francis (female), born about 1853, “Allen” as a last name!

Is this M.A. the Matthew we want? Is Francis his wife? ( right age) Is Melvina Allen, perhaps Francis’s sister, born about 1849 ?

Hold on a minute: a search on Melvina Allen results in the following:[6]

MELVINA ALLEN

Female

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Event(s):

Birth: 1849 , Knox, Illinois

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parents:

Father: WILLIAM M. ALLEN Family

Mother: AMERICA ANN ELIZABETH MAXEY

Born in Knox County? While we are not sure this is the same Melvina, its an interesting coincidence!

Finally, if we presume that the location where James and Sarah McDowell are buried is somehow relevant, the following information on “Allen” is provided from the burial records of Center Church Cemetery:[7]

Sarah M. (Brandon) Allen, (wife of Daniel M. Allen) Willshire Allen, age 1 yrs. Jacob H. Allen, age 1 yr. Elen M. Allen, aged 5 yrs. (Sons and Daus. Of Sarah M. & Daniel M. Allen) b. 1820 d. 02Aug1853 b. 1846 d. 04lSept1847 b. 1850 d. 18Nov1851 b. 1848 d. 02Nov1853

So, Sarah Allen died in 1853, the year that Francis was born. Did she die at childbirth? Was she Francis’s mother?

CONCLUSIONS, QUESTIONS, and FURTHER RESEARCH

1. Mathew H. of Illinois is the son of James and Sarah Brandon McDowell. He is not the father of Effie Ann. Hence Sarah and James are not her grandparents.

2. The only information I have about who is the father of Effie Ann is her obituary which indicates she is he daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Matthew McDowell.

a. Is M.A. McDowell of the 1870 census our Matthew?

b. Finding the 1880 census which gives Effie Ann and her parents would be helpful.

c. Is there 1850 or 1860 census data on M.A. ?

Hi, I found your name on the geneasearch website. A great uncle of mine, Henry C. Dickey, served in the Civil War 1861-1864. He was from Abingdon, Knox Co. He was a farmer, unmarried, likely living with his mother Sarah. I am not sure if father (John) was there. I am looking for any record (census, land, etc) that would place him in Abingdon area in 1860. Thanks for your help. Dean Munroe

I am also searching for information (birth, etc...) on Mary WAINWRIGHT. Then his wife died. His wife may have emigrated with him, but I don't have her name or any info about her except she was possibly born in England. After this he moved to Michigan and married a woman named Medora "Dora" (GREEN) MERRITT on March 27, 1900. They eventually moved to Grand Traverse County, Michigan.

Re: Theo Hess
Foxie Hagerty -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 12:10 p.m.

Hi, I'm the webmaster for this site and out of the 1889 Pictorial and Biographical Album of Warren County, IL, published by the Chapman Brothers is this bio:

Thomas M. Hess, MD, a practicing physician residing in Berwick village, and a graduate of Rush Medical College, Chicago, was born in New albany, Ind., September 22, 1819. Dr. Hess read medicine in Westfield, clark Co., Ill., with Drs. Moore and Briscoe, and then with Dr. Freeman. He entered Stirling College at Columbus, Ohio, and then settled in Homer, Champaign County, and practiced there for about 26 years. The first marriage of Dr. hess took place January 24, 1839, to Miss Nancy Button, who was born in Preble Co., Ohio, Nov. 04, 1818. The Doctor was agaain married, June 16, 1881, to Mrs. Martha M. Joyce, who was born in Delaware Co, Ohio, October 28, 1843. Mrs. Hess is the daughter of Benj. F. Allen, a native of Vermont, who was born in 1813, and died in 1865 in Maquon , this State. He was a stock-raiser by occupation, and married Miss Almira Swettzer, in 1831. she died in 1845, in Delaware Co., Ohio, after having borne her husband six children, who were name Sarah E., Ethan, Benton, Mary D, Silas W. and Martha.

Dr. Hess located in Berwick village in 1881, and has continued fto follow his profession there until the present time. He is the father of nine children----Apollos, born February 17, 1840; William H., January 11, 1842; Smith H. February 10, 1844; Theodore, December 23, 1851, a twin brother to Ferdinand, who died in infancey; Allie Belle, December 19, 1853; Theophilus M., November 22, 1857. The above children were by the first marriage of Dr. Hess, to Miss Nancy Button. Of his second union, namely, with Mrs. joyce, the following children were born: Theo Leota, March 23, 1883; Theola M., January 14, 1885. Three of the above named are physicians, namely, William H., Apollos, and Smith H.

The Doctor is a member of the christian church, and has preached in the same for nearly 40 years. His wife is also a member of the same denomination. The Doctor joined the order of Masonry in 1854, and was a charter member of Homer Lodge, No. #199. In politics he is a Douglas Democrat and has always voted that ticket. In 1879 he occupied the pulpit for some four or five meetings in the Christian church on Western Avenue, Chicago.

I believe the bio of this Doctor Hess is the Father of your Theophilus Magruder Hess. I'm not sure but I think so. If you have Doctors in your family history. Hope it's a match. There are a few Hess's in the 1877 Past and Present but didn't know if they would go with yours or not. There is a Sarah Hess who married a Foster. Hope this helps you.....Happy Gene Hunting. Foxie

Hi Tom, Hope you get this answer to your post. The source for the Cold Brook Twp., information is the 1889 Pictorial and Biographical Album of Warren County, IL. Thanks for the compliments. Just wish there were more time in the day to spend on my genealogy research and putting my web page together. I get side tracked helping others look for their families and then with personal everyday items and such... There is a short Bio in the Past and Present printed in 1877 of Warren county, iL, if you'd be interested in it. He was much more than just a preacher and Published a 79 page pamphlet entitled the "Final Destiny of Adam's Race". That is probably in a library somewhere.

Happy Gene Hunting. Foxie

Clay/Mosser Cemetery Knox co., IL
Leslie Shelley -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 2:46 p.m.

Last year I went to the Clay-Mosser Cemetery to see my GGrandparents graves. They are listed in one of the Knox Co. Publications as being buried there. The cemetery was completely overgrown with thorny vines and tall brush. I found some gravestones but not the ones I wanted. Does anyone know if there are any pictures of this cemetery before it's decline? My family that I was looking for was John Tipton Barnett dob Oct. 20. 1809 dod Sept. 2, 1905 and Malinda Robison Barnett dob Nov. 11, 1806 dod. May 14, 1893. I had found a front page article about John T. Barnett's death in the microfilm from the Galesburg Republican Register. He had been Marshall of the day at the Lincoln Douglas Debate at Knox College and it spoke of his friendship with Abraham Lincoln. There is a new website to report problems with cemeteries in Illinois, but the message is never received. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it very much. I live in Calif. so I don't have the opportunity to come back yet with some heavy duty gardening tools! Thank you for reading this, Leslie Shelley b11301029@aol.com

McMurtry, Peckingpaughm, McKee, Champion
Janice Katherine Lund -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 2:48 p.m.

William McMurtry was born in Mercer county, Ky., Feb. 20, 1801; removed from Kentucky to Crawford County, Ind., and in 1829 came to Knox County, IL, settling in Henderson Township. He was elected State representative in the Tenth General Assembly (1836), and to the Senate in 1842, serving in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth General Assemblies. In 1848 he was elected Lt. Gov. on the same Democratic ticket with A. C. French. Inaugurated Jan. 8, 1849. Last day in office, Jan. 10, 1853.

He was the eleventh man to serve as IL Lt. Gov. In 1862 he assisted in raising the One Hundred and Second Regiment Illinois Volunteers, and although advanced in years, was elected Colonel, but a few weeks later was compelled to accept a discharge on account of failing health. Died April 10, 1875.

Excerpted from the HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS, Bateman and Selby, 1901.

William married Ruth CHAMPION, daughter of John CHAMPION and Mary "Polly" CANNON.

In 1829 William and James McMurtry with their families, formed a further addition to the pioneer settlement, locating on section 3 in Henderson Township.

Henderson Township was organized April 5, 1853. The meeting was called to order by William McMurtry; S. G. Dean was appointed Moderator, and W. R. Jackson, Clerk; 155 votes were cast at this election, resulting in the choice of Peter Frans for Supervisor; Martin W. Gay, Clerk; James McMurtry, Assessor; G. G. Dean, Collector; Thomas McKee and Abraham Jackson, Justices of the Peace.

Millicent Denbow wrote the following regarding her Mother and it mentions some of the early settlers:

The wolves were bold and early settlers had to be cautious of them. One of the women, Mrs.. Denbow, had a very odd adventure. She took her baby in her arms and went out in search of her sheep. She found them and started to drive home, but they would not go that way. It was growing dark, and fearing she would loose her way, she gave up and started the way she thought was home. The sheep went the other way. She wondered along, carrying her baby, and crossed a stream on a long. Finally feeling so tired she lay down to rest. A wolf's howl aroused her and she hurried on to a cherry tree, taking the baby's dress between her teeth, she began to climb up the tree, but the dress tore and the baby fell to the ground and rolled down a small hill. She recovered it and climbed up the tree, just in time to be out of reach of the wolves, that was sniffing the ground where the baby had rolled and she had walked, for she was barefoot and her feet were bloody, from walking on the briers. Mrs.. Denbow was afraid she would go to sleep, and she was very tired, and then she might drop her child, so she tied her long hair to a branch. When her husband came home he thought that the Indians had taken her, and he hastened to the home of the neighbors and asked them to help him search for her. One of the men crossed the river and she heard him shouting for her and answered. He called the other men and they went to her and assisted her down the tree after the dogs drove the wolves away. They took her to a house where a bright fire burned and warm clothes were ready. Her dress was torn to ribbons, by the bushes. After she was warmed, her husband took her home, and not until three weeks later was she able to be up. The story, as it is written, is very deficient, and does not include the names of those that went on the hunt for my mother. William McMurtry and James McMurtry and Nicholas Kontz and William Riley and my father, Solomon Denbow, rode the timber all night hollering for mother, and old William McMurtry found her just at daylight. He shot several of the wolves that had congregated about the foot of the tree. They say my mother was lost by hearing an Indian pony bell and she thought it was her sheep bell. They had to watch the three sheep all day to keep the wolves from them, and of an evening they had to pen them out in a pen that the wolves could not get through. My mother followed the sound of the bell down point branch about three miles before she discovered her mistake, then her feet had been scratched by the briers so badly that they left a trail of blood that the wolves followed.

My name is Janice Katherine Lund and I am a descendant of William McMURTRY (his 3rd Great Granddaughter). (Galesburg, Illinois, April 17, 1875, contributed by 3rd Great Granddaughter, Janice Chastain Lund)

Death of Ex-Gov McMurtry

Last Monday in the town of Henderson, the earth closed over the remains of one who had a brief quarter of a century ago wielded a power in the state affairs of Illinois equaled by few men of his time. Had Lieutenant-Governor McMurtry died twenty-five years ago the occurrence would have throbbed from corner to corner throughout the state. Today it caused only a passing notice outside of the immediate circle in which for half a century he lived and from which he has passed to the other shore.

Early Career

Lieutenant-governor William McMurtry was born in Crawford County, Indiana (My Note: He was "married" in Crawford County, Indiana but born in Mercer County, Kentucky - don't know who gave this erroneous information) where they resided about eleven years. In November, 1829 they came to Henderson Township, Knox County and settled. The family drove their stake in what was then a wilderness and there the subject of this sketch has buffeted the waves of time and fought the battles of life for forty-five years and was finally borne to his last resting place from the spot where they first settled.

Political Life

Mr. McMurtry has had a political career fraught with all the uncertainties. He was a leader in the Democratic party and has held many offices of local prominence, vaulted into the state legislature and finally reached within one step of the highest office in the state. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1836 and was re-elected in 1838 serving four consecutive years in that capacity. In 1841 he was elected state senator serving there for four years. In 1848 he reached his highest prominence in political preferment when elected Lieutenant-Governor under Governor French. He was also one of the state commissioners for building the penitentiary at Joliet and during the war was commissioned Colonel of the One Hundred and Second regiment of Illinois Infantry.

His Political Power

Although unostentatious in his address while at home, mixing indiscriminately with his constituency and ranking familiarly as one of the boys, Governor McMurtry would wielded a powerful influence in Springfield and his opinions were sought by the leading men of the time. Talking with some of his contemporaries in the days when he was at the zenith of his political career, we learn that either in his seat as a Representative and Senator, or outside of that body altogether, he was a power in himself and accomplished Herculean tasks in the matter of state legislation by his indomitable energy and singular influence among men.

He was not an educated man. On the contrary, it is said that the circumstances of his early frontier life had been of such a rough and wild character that he had not even learned to read when he reached man’s estate and was taught by his wife after marriage. Brought up as it were in a howling wilderness, he afterwards spent several years as a flat-boatman on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, away from all refining influences and had none of the advantages of education that favor the present generation. But he was possessed of a native eloquence that took hold upon his hearers and caused them to look up to him as one of the first and foremost men of the day and generation in which he flourished. He was a man of few words, but every word carried with it weight and meaning.

His Last Sickness

The deceased was a man of powerful physique and wonderful vitality, but ___ ____ _____ _____ (text missing off copy) to the great Leveler, Death. The immediate cause of death was Dropsy and for some time past, the deceased suffered beyond expression. He could neither recline nor stand up but was obliged to continually sit and could only sleep by resting his head upon pillows. It was relieved of earthly suffering on Sunday last.

The Funeral

The funeral took place Monday at Henderson and was very largely attended by people from the neighboring country. There were some seventy carriages in the procession besides many people on horseback and on foot. The services were solemnized with Masonic honors. G. C. Lamphere, of this city, acting as Worshipful Master. The remains were interred in Rice’s burying -ground about two miles northwest of Henderson and within a quarter of a mile of the first ground cultivated in Knox County.

Hendricks, Strode, McNary Ellison Twp.
C Wilson -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 3:22 p.m.

Abraham Hendricks-Jane Davis Hendricks owned land in Ellison Twp-Warren Co. in 1835. Their offspring are in the same county as follows: 1834 their son Robert K. marries Eliz. McNary, 1847 their daughter, Rhuanne marries A. Washington Strode, 1847 their son, Caswell marries Mary Strode, 1850 their son, William D. is in Coldbrook Twp census. Trail goes cold on Abraham and Jane after Ellison Twp, Warren County before 1850. They may have died and are buried there. Would appreciate any information on this family!

Johnston, Ferdinand
John Lester -- Tuesday, 1 June 2004, at 1:35 a.m.

Since the previous posting, I have a new email address. More importantly, the Warren County Circuit Court located the divorce of Mary Jane Johnston and Ferdinand Miles Hull in 1865, which was definitely scandalous. My ggm just flat-out lied about being a widow. It appears that this same Ferdinand soon married Johanna Reardon in Lafayette Co. WI. They had a child, Maude Margarite, born in Delavan, Tazewell Co in 1870. Then Ferdinand and Johanna moved to Chicago, where he practiced veterinary surgery until he became disabled and later died in 1894; buried at Oakwoods Cemetery in Chicago. This is the story as it now appears, but a lot can change. If anyone has add'l information, such as veterinary surgeons in Knox and Warren Co. in the 19th century, or something about Mary Jane Johnston (aka Johnson)'s family in Knox County, this would be appreciated. (She supposedly was b. Highland Co. Ohio in 1822, and moved with her family around 1831 1st to Indiana then to Knox Co). I would be willing to be more specific about the nature of the scandal if someone can help. Thanks.

Mills Family Warren County, IL
KENNETH E RATCLIFF -- Monday, 21 June 2004, at 2:41 p.m.

Hi,

Many, many thank you's for your kindness and your wonderful work in sending me all of this information.

You asked me for my e-mail address (kerats@msn.com) so you could send me the photos of the tombstones at the Silent Home Cemetery. Are you going to send these as jpeg files? or did you want my US mailing address?? I still don't know who the Melissa Mills (1889 - 1971) is?? The Mills surname is a very very common name in the states of IL, OH, KY, NC & VA (almost like Smith or Jones).

We have a fairly active DAR in our county, much more so than the SAR. A number of my Mills family were DAR members. I gather that they tie to Captain James Mills who fought in the Revolutionary War in NC. He received a land grant for his war service. Later the family travel with Daniel Boone to KY where they lived for two generation before moving into OH. I found an item of interest in a DAR listing. The listing says that a Mrs. Florence Edith Mills, wife of William Parker Mills, born Bloomfield, CA DAR ID #42710. I can seemed to match this item to either one of my W.P. Mills' unless it could be the wife of the Jr. and he was married after the 1930 census. I also find this of interest since I have travel through the very small town of Bloomfield, CA ever since I was a small boy. Bloomfield is just a little north of the City of Petaluma (it use to be the egg basket of the world) and a little south of the town of Two Rock [(use as a RCA Radio Relay station & by the US Army during WWII)(now the site of the Coast Guard Academy)].

Yes, I am a vet. I served in the Navy from 1967 until 1971. I was station at NAS Lemoore (outside of Fresno, CA), transferred to NAS Miramar (home of the top gun school outside of San Diego) for two years [also temp. served on a number of carriers (was on maiden voyage of the USS J. F. Kennedy) and land bases during this time] and then transferred to the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga for two years. During the time on the "Tico", were were in Viet Nam & Korea. I was awarded nine service medals & two awards. My adopted Dad was in the Army (private to First Lt) so we traveled a lot. My biological Father & Mom were also in the Army along with my step Dad.

Could you still look possible look up an obituary for William P. Mills (15 NOV 1893 - SEP 1969) in Galesburg >Yes it might take me a couple of days.... I have to look at Microfilm, but first have to get to the library in Galesburg. But will look it up for you... >

:(Eva J. Nelson living at 954 West Prairie Street in Galesburg. Archie is
:listed as a WWI vet. [ Thank you, this might possible settle my above
:question on the DAR listing too] You are a wonderful problem solver. Yes, you are right that Melissa is Clark's wife. I have some confusion on her birth date because the census records (1910, 1920 & 30) plus the SS records state that she was born in the year 1883. Where as her tombstone says 1889. Melissa remarried, after Clark died, to Harry C. Haley and Melissa's two sons (LeRoy & Max) live with them.

The two Mills boys (Roy & Loy) might belong to some other parent. Joseph & Florence Mills' son Roy was born 7 JUL 1900 in MO, married abt. 1923 to Edna, issued three girls, and he died in FEB 1967 in NM. Roy & Edna lived in Junction City, KS in the year 1930. Roy's brother, Loy was born abt. 1901 in MO, married & divorced before 1930. Loy lived in Burlington, IA in the 1930 census.

Chas./Charles Gerald Mills did belong to William & Mary Mills since William was dead in 1894. It's "possible" that he belonged to Joe & Florence but I think we need a document to confirm this birth to them.

My Mills family liked to use the family first names over and over again in different generations and different lines. My g, grandfather was Burwell B. Mills but then he had "lots" of cousins by the same name too. The above Joseph W. Mills' brother's name was also Burwell B. Mills. You then have the confusion of Roy, Loy & LeRoy. What a tangled web we weaver!

Hope you had a good progressive DAR meeting.

Ken

Received your package!
KENNETH E RATCLIFF -- Wednesday, 30 June 2004, at 10:15 a.m.

Hi,

Your package arrive late yesterday afternoon. I want to thank you very very sincerely for doing such wonderful work for a total stranger. A lot of your material in your package I did not have in my computer file.

I also want to thank you for your idea on your cemetery page. I am going to take it one step further along the line. I am going to publish the full written material on the front page on the computer. The back side of the page will have published the photos from the computer scans. I bought a couple of boxes of the protective covers from our Cosco (You might check your Sam's Club) since their prices were so low.

Thank you too for sending me the data on Burwell Brown Mills Jr. [1915 - 2002] and his wife Loma Mackey [1913 - 1964]. Both of them died in Houston, TX.

I also solved the problem of Roy Earl Mills [Twin 1901 - 1902] and Charles Gerald Mills. These were the children of Joe & Florence Mills. I found the answer in the 1910 census for the that correct errors in the 1920 & 1930 census. The one that I was telling that was Roy was really Raymond "Ray" and the other one that I was telling you that was Loy was really Lou. Joe was a conductor for the Central Illinois Railroad from 1910 until 1940+.

I also want to thank you for the small booklet on Monmouth, IL. It has some interesting bits. One piece was that Monmouth is the birth place of Wyatt Earp. Did you know, that Wyatt Earp use to drive me home from school???? You didn't know that I was that old did you?? Really, the actor [Hugh O'Brain] that played Wyatt Earp was dating my adopted Clayton cousin when I was in grade school in CA.

I am going to have to put my genealogy research on hold until sometime in the middle of July. As we are going to CA for the 4th of July holiday.

I will post your check to you in this week's US Mail. I added a little bit extra for your gas and leg work.

Very Sincerely,

Ken

M. L. Carey -- Thursday, 29 July 2004, at 8:24 a.m.

Looking for information on Wavie Joe and Effie Hawkins Miller. Both were born in Kentucky. But are living in Warren county by 1918. Civilian draft registration names address as Alexis, Warren County, Illinois. Wavie's birth date is 31 AUG 1882. Then I found them in 1930 census. Alexis, Spring Grove Township, Warren County, Illinois. Anything on the family would be helpful.

THANK YOU! Foxie (and Kate)
Vern -- Thursday, 30 September 2004, at 8:42 a.m.

THANK YOU! Foxie (and Kate)

The information was wonderful, I couldn't wait to start sharing with some of my cousins. I will put the money in the mail Weds. I will include a little extra to cover the cost of the additional information you might have or come across. The tombstone of the children Claude & Clyde 1898-1907 has really got me baffled. The fact they are buried with Alfered and Emma would lead me to believe the boys belonged to them. They did have a son Clive that is shown living with them in the 1900 census that was born in dec. 1897. but no Claude or Clyde. Clive lived into adulthood. There were two other children living with the family in 1900, but they were older. Emma also claimed on the census that she had three children and all were still living. So who are these two boys and who do they belong to? Isn't genealogy great. Right when you think you are starting to get a good picture of the family and who belonged to who, another mystery crops up.

Sounds like you had quite a day with the storms. Here in Toledo we only have weather bad enough to warrant a Tornado warning maybe a couple times a year. But, I know what you deal with in Illinois. I lived in Pekin, outside Peoria, for a couple years back in the 1970's. Seems like we were under warnings quite a bit. Got scary sometimes.

Once again, Foxie, thank you for all the effort in getting these pictures and info for me. I really appreciate all the great effort. Let Kate know this as well. I will look forward to the Bio on Dr. Bailey Ragon.

Thanks, Vern

Johnson's of Floyd Township, Warren County, IL
Jill -- Thursday, 30 September 2004, at 8:54 a.m.

Johnson is such a common surname! The family I am looking for arrived in Warren County in 1845 and were there until 1880 census living in Floyd Township the whole time. JOHNSON, George W. and Nancy had the following children : Charles, James Perry, Wilson, Lloyd H., Amos and George (a bunch of boys). Charles married a woman name Charlotte (?) and had 2 daughters, Maude and Kaitie. Charles died sometime between 1872 (kaities birth) and March 11, 1877 as his wife, Charlotte, remarried to A.J. Smith (James). Charlotte and James were married for a long time, she last lived in Iowa in 1927 at the age of 82.

Charles and Charlotte are my 3rd great-grandparents, Maude being my 2nd.

Any help at all would be appreciated!

Jill Yes, this is the family-I am sure of it. George W. came out of Vermont and Charles (the eldest son) was born in PA-so it all matches. The only initial I had for Charles was a T or P. There is a C.P. Johnson marrying a Charlotta Moore in Warren County Feb 9, 1864 that could be them (maude was born in 1869 and Charles would have been 21 if this is their marriage). After Charlotte remarried the family is in the 1880 in Roseville, Warren IL but by 1885 show up in the Adair County, IA census-this is where Maude ended up raising her family for the next 80 years. I usually include all the collateral in my search (siblings, wives of the person I am researching) because it helps to verify the family. I am hoping Charles is buried in Silent Home and I get a date of death from there.

Thanks for all the input re: the Johnson's-have yet to see it spelled the other way. Hope you had a good drive.

Marsham Lucas Orbit
Foxie -- Sunday, 17 October 2004, at 3:36 a.m.

His obituary is found in the Monmouth Review of 25 June 1898. Marsham Lucas, one of the first settlers of Monmouth, died at the age of 96 years on 24 June 1898 at his home in Abindgon where he had lived since 1864. He came to Monmouth from Kentucky in 1829. At that time there was no town but he helped plat the town when the site was picked out by the committee appointed by the state legislature and also helped lay out many of the country roads. He bought one of the first lots ever sold in the city, lot 4 in blcok 12, the lot just north of the Hall garage on North Second street for $4.78 1/2. He bought the first reaper and mower ever brought to Monmouth, driving to Chicago in a wagon for it. He lived on a farm four miles east of Monmouth until his removal to Abingdon in 1864. Mrs. W.H. Frantz was his daughter. His remains were brought to Monmouth and his funeral service was held in the Christian church, with burial in the Monmouth cemetery. The Monmouth Review of 27 June 1898 had a further story about his death. The remains of Marsham Lucas were brought from Abingdon to Monmouth where he made his home for over half a century that morning. The funeral services were held in the Christian church and a large number of his old friends were present. Dr. A.H. Dean conducted the services assissted by Reverend C.G. Kindred, pastor of the Christian church, Abingdon. The music was by a quartet, Mrs. F.L. Hall, Miss Lucy Tresham, S.S. Hallan and James Hugg with Mrs. E.J. Clarke, organist. The pall bearers were George Sickmon, Thomas Beers, E.E. Wallace, N.Chapin, George Claycomb and C. Swiler. The interment was in the Monmouth cemetery. Those present from outside the city were Thomas and Richard Lucas, J.T. Schritland, Abingdon, Charles Lucas and wife, Mrs. Jane Lucas, Harry Lucas, Mrs. Stilson, J. Ellis.

Marriage Lookup request...McKahan/Lair
Foxie -- Sunday, 17 October 2004, at 4:58 a.m.

In my old Warren county history book of bibliographical's it has a William M lair a well known farmer of Kelly Township, is the son of William Lair, one of the earliest pioneers of Warerehn Co.. The Senior Lair was born in Warren Co., KY, April 3, 1797. His father was a German by birth and his mother was born in North Carolina. They were among the very first settlers in Warren Co., KY, and theiur son, the father of thegentleman who is represented in this sketch, wa the first white child born there. He was reared toi be a farmer, and passed the whole of his youth in his native lounty. He was married there, Feb. 5, 1827, to Sarah R. Wallace. Shge was the daughter of William and Nancy (Smith) Wallace and was also a native of Warren Co., KY. Her Grandfather, Robert Wallace, came from Ireland. She was born May 8, 1809.

In 1832 they left their native county6 with their family, setting out with THEIR FAMILY, SETTING OUT WITH THEIR OWN CONVEYANCE, FOR THE sTATE OF illINOIS. tHEY BROUGHT WITH THEM THEIR HOUSEHOLD APPURTENANCES and camped and cooked by the waysiude. Thjey were four weeks on the road. They passed a year on the Spoon River, in Knox County, and after reaching Warren C ounty settled for a summer in Monmouth. Mr Lair then bought land on section 30, in "Township 12, RangeI, now Kelley Township. He set about perfecting the arrangements common to pionee4rs , built a log house for the temporary accommodation of his household, and proceeded with all possible dispatch to work of improving his claim. Soon asfter, the first log cabin was replaced by a doublehujewed-log structure of goodly dimensions, which constituted their home until 1858. In that year the family removed to the southeast quarter of the same section and once more lived in a poineer's cabin. This they inhabited until 1861. They then removed to a school-house, in which they lived six weeks, while their own house was in preparation. The new2 house was a commodious frame building, and was the home of the senior Lair during the remaining portion of hius life. His demise took place April 7, 1872. Six of the children born to him and his wife (thirteen in all) are still living. They are Robert W., who married Mary A Quinn, and to them were born four children, viz: Annie, William, Addison and Fannie. Addison is deceased. Robert lives in Spring Grove Township. Harriet is the wife of Dwight Corning, and is the mother of ten children; the names of the six living being Benjamin, Jennie, Jessie, Clark, Helen and Alice. The family reside in Crawford County, Kas. Helen is the wife of Samuel McKahan, and they are also residents of Crawford County, and the parents of five children, namely: Charley, May, Hattie, Altie and an infant desceased.

Then it goes on to tell about the other children and William M Liar who was the subject of this sketch. From what I gather I think Helen is his sister. I'm not sure but she was in Kansas not IL. It's kind of hard to figure it out unless you know who they are talking about and I have no idea. But thought this might help you some. Have a happy day. Foxie

Hi, Am sifting through things here. In my 1850 census book Rebecca is 17 years old born in IN. Her parents listed are Joseph born in IN. Then this lady must of been her granmother because she is 65 years old and listed as a widow born in PA. Then Mary who is 37 years old born in KY. then John age 19 born in IN. Don't know what township this is in doesn't say in my book it's not broken down that way... then above is a Widow Cunningham woman living which would be next door she was born in KY and the rest of the children were born in IN. Probably some relation... Nancy 20, James M. 18, Huldah Ann 16, Henry 14, Mary J. 11, George 9, Sarah C. 7, Esther Ann 5, Thomas J., 3.

Tilford Rice/Sarah Emeline Ray
Bob Campbell -- Saturday, 15 January 2005, at 12:50 a.m.

Thank you for your helpful website. I am trying to get more information regarding several of my ancestors who lived in Warren County. Any assistance you can provide about those shown in bold will be greatly appreciated.

My great grandfather named Tilford Rice (b. 1848 in KY and d. Warren Co. 1 Nov. 1899. (He has definitely been a brick wall.)

He married Sarah Emeline Ray 27 Dec 1871 presumably in Warren Co.). They had 6 daughters all born in Warren Co.

Daughters were Jessie Rice b. ?; Stella H. Rice b. 1873; Cora Ellis Rice b. 1874; Zoe Myrtle Rice b. 1878; Inez Tabitha Rice b. 1882; Ida Pearl Rice b. 1884.

Zoe Myrtle Rice married William A. Campbell b. 14 April 1869 Brenton Twp, Ford Co., IL

Sarah Emeline Ray mentioned above was the daughter of Marshall Bedford Ray b. 6 Feb 1828 in Warren Co KY and d. 1908 in Warren Co. IL and the daughter of Nancy Catherine Ray b. 10 Dec 1829 in KY and d. 10 Mar 1908 in Warren Co., IL.

Thank you again for any assistance and suggestions. Also, Foxie made me a brick wall. Thanks Bob Campbell San Diego, CA

James Reeves, b ca 1793 in NY
Claire Lucas McDonald -- Saturday, 15 January 2005, at 12:53 a.m.

I am looking for the death record of James Reeves, b ca 1793 in NY I think, whose youngest 3 children--Lydia 1830, John 1832, and Reuben 1834, are recorded as born in Roseville, Warren Co, IL. This is internet data, so may not be correct.

I am also looking for the marriage record of Eunice Manning Reeves, widow of James, who married Asher Dusenbark or Busenbark there, not sure when. A child was born to them named Emily, also not sure when.

This family was part of the Mormon migration but stayed in IL when the others moved to Iowa and then Utah or MO.

I would appreciate any help with this family.

Thank you. Claire Lucas McDonald

John and Mary Jane Madden Saville
William Hansen -- Monday, 14 March 2005, at 9:01 a.m.

Looking for any information on the family of John Saville and his wife Mary Jane Madden.

John Saville was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia on 6 Dec 1817. As a young man he moved to Xenia, Greene County, Ohio where he married Mary Jane Madden in 1847. In the early 1850s they moved near Monmouth.

John and Mary Jane had at least 4 children:

1. Charles W. Saville. born 2 Nov 1848 in Xenia, Ohio. Charles married Mary Jane Patterson on 13 Jun 1866. They were last known to be living in Leadville, Colorado in the 1900 census. 2. Rolland Edgar Saville, born 24 Jun 1857 near Monmouth. He married Anna Mary Stevenson on 15 Dec 1897 in Warren County. Roland died in 1942 and Anna in 1937. 3. John Franklin "Frank" Saville, born 15 Sep 1852 in Warren County. He married Lyde(?) J. Porter on 7 Feb 1878 in Warren county. 4. Mary Inez Saville, also born 15 Sep 1872. She may have died in 1930 in Rock Island, Illinois.

As near as I can tell, the children were very artistic. Rolland and John are listed in census records as musicians and Charles is listed as a painter.

Hi, I'm up late and this came in on my thing. I have a Male Marriage book from 1825 -1915 Warren Co., IL Charles W. Saville married Mary J. Patterson on June 13, 1877.

Mary died and apparently never married May 05, 1930 in East Moline, Rock Island County, IL Anna Mary Saville died March 27, 1939 Warren County, IL Rolland Edgar Saville died July 29, 1942, O'Quawka, Henderson Co., IL

In the 1877 Past & Present of Warren county, IL under Monmouth City; page #221 Saville, Chas. W. painter; rep; UP; from OH Saville, John, blacksmith; re; UP; from Virginia. Saville, J. F., Muscian; re; U.P. born IL

Same book page #148 under Churches The First United Presbyterian Church. This congregation was organized by Re. Robert Ross, May 09, 1853, more than twenty-three yeas ago, as an Associate Reformed church. Nineteen person untied, whose names were as follows: John and Mary J. Saville... The congreation worshipped in the court-house from the organization until the close of 1856, when the old college chapel was finished and services were conducted there. The chapel becoming too small for the increasing congregation, it was decided to erect a church edifice. They built a church w\which was completed in the early part of the summer of 1848. The first service s held therein on July 04, 1848. And that is all for now. Hope this helps some.... I just was intrigrued with the last name. I hadn't seen it before and I've seen alot of them....

Thanks so much for your reply. This particular Saville family is quite a mystery. I have spent considerable time trying to associate it with the rest of my Saville connections - all of which are from Rockbridge County, VA. I am in hopes of tracking down an obit for John Saville that might tell me who his parents were, but am not sure that local papers published such obits in 1889.

Saville is English in origin and is quite common throughout England. There is a street in London called Saville Row that is quite well known for its clothing stores and, perhaps, most famously as the original home of Apple Records. The Beatles performed for the last time in public on the roof of the Apple records building on Saville Row.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Am seeking information on 1 or 2 children (siblings) adopted from Hannibal, MO by a MINOR family and a HUNTER family in or near Monmouth around 1920. I believe the girls stayed together and went to one family and boy went to the other family.

John J Mathews 83rd Illinois
Penny -- Monday, 14 March 2005, at 9:39 a.m.

My ancestor John J Mathews served in the civil war, enlisted at Monmouth, IL 1862. Residence is listed as Floyd, IL (an archaic place name in Warren Co). He was born in "Canada West" in 1842. Died in Newaygo Co, MI in 1897. Anyone out there know of him or his parents?

ELLIOTT / McCREARY
Sue Kleinschmidt -- Monday, 14 March 2005, at 9:43 a.m.

My great grandfather was John Robert ELLIOTT. According to his obituary, he married a MRS. JENNIE McCREARY of Monmouth IL on May 27, 1915. He would have been around 70 or so when they were married. I know it was his 2nd marriage, two years after his first wife had died, so I am assuming it is also MRS. JENNIE McCREARY's 2nd marriage also. John Robert ELLIOTT died in Monmouth IL on October 24th, 1919. He is buried in the Bruning NE cemetery in Bruning NE, Thayer or Fillmore county. His first wife was MARY MOWER, with which he had 7 children, 2 dying in infancy. Does anyone know who MRS. JENNIE McCREARY is or anything about her? Thanks in advance! found a number of items regarding Flora "Jennie" Morton, second wife of David Hawthorne McCrery as well as your John Robert Elliott.

From the Illinois Death Index at: http://www2.sos.state.il.us/GenealogyMWeb/idphdeathsrch.html

ELLIOTT JENNIE MORTON F/W UNK 0940040 1929-02-16 WARREN MONMOUTH 29-02-16

Some information regarding her first husband and their marriage is available at: http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=tyrilla&id=I18942&track=AFT9

If you are interested, I already have photos of David McCrery's marker and that of his wives. Jennie is buried with other members of her family at Monmouth Cemetery, in a section that had once been a separate cemetery known as Glendale. The two neighboring cemeteries were later merged under city control. Her marker reads, "F. Jennie Morthon Elliott, wife of John, 1851-1929".

From the Monmouth Daily Review-Atlas, Saturday 16 February 1929 - Page 3, column 3:

MRS. ELLIOTT PASSED AWAY ----------------------------------------------- HAD MADE HER HOME HERE FOR MORE THAN FORTY-FIVE YEARS - FUNERAL MONDAY.

Mrs. Jennie Morton Elliott, for over forty-five years a continuous resident of this community with the exception of about four years, passed away this morning a little before 7 o'clock at the home of her niece, Mrs. Will Furguson, 112 North Seventh Street. A week ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis at the time she was recovering from an attack of influenza, and her strength steadily failed to the end.

Mrs. Elliott was the daughter of William and Flora (Culbertson) Morton, and was born near Madison, Indiana, March 19, 1851. In 1882 she and her sister moved to Monmouth and in 1897 she was united in marriage to D. H. McCreery (sic) of near this city. Mr. McCreery died in 1903 and in 1916 his widow married John Elliott of Bruning, Nebraska, where they lived until his death in 1920. Since that time she has made her home with her niece, Mrs. Ferguson.

In her girlhood days she united with the United Presbyterian church at Madison, Indiana, and later transferred her membership to the Second church of Monmouth. Her life was as sincere as it was unassuming and those who knew her best greatly revered her character.

She leaves to mourn her passing two brothers, John, in Kansas, and William, in Indiana, and a number of nieces and nephews, besides a large number of friends who had come to know here through the years she had lived in the community.

Funeral services will be held at the Ferguson home at 10:30 Monday morning, and interment will be made in Glendale cemetery.

The 1910 US Census lists Jennie McCreary living at 300 South Sixth Street, Monmouth 1st ward in Warren County. Her niece, Mary "Tate" (Tait) was living with her. Mary became the second wife of William Ferguson, as mentioned in the obituary. Mary wed late in life, as did her aunt Jennie. Four of Mary's unmarried sisters, most of whom lived 90+ years, are also buried next to her.

The 1920 US Census lists Flora J. Elliott as living with William and Mary (Tait) Ferguson at 112 North Seventh street, where she died about 9 years later.

I would assume that Jennie's unnnamed sister in the obituary was Susan Morton, who married a C. J. Tait. I have no further information on the family at this time, beyond the names of five daughters - Mary (1866-1962, 2nd w/o Wm. Ferguson), Cordelia C. (1874-1955), Ida M. (1868-1959), Florence (1864-1961), and Anna A. (1869-1961).

I have John Robert Elliott's obituary stating that he died in Monmouth IL in 1919. I have read the other pages you gave me and think we have a definite connection but a few differing facts but another possible connection. Please contact me at bkleinschmidt@alltel.net. Thanks!!! I copied Jennie's obit into my family tree. Thanks! Sue Kleinschmidt

Fransico's of Warren County, IL
Colleen Kelly -- Monday, 14 March 2005, at 10:38 a.m.

William Francisco is the only Francisco I could find in the 1850 US Fed. Census for Warren Co., IL. As Hannah Francisco married Peter E. Terpening on 2 November 1842 in Warren Co., I am speculating that she is a daughter of William. The only other Francisco marriage found in the Warren Co. marriage records at ancestry.com is Harriet who married Stephen Presson on 2 February 1848, so again, I speculate that she is a younger daughter of William. On the same date that Stephen and Harriet married, Esther Presson married Luther Hibbard; therefore, I speculate (read assume) that Stephen and Esther are brother and sister.

In the 1840 US Federal Census, William Francisco is listed:

1 male 5-10 (Solomon?) 1 male 40-50 (William) 1 female 5-10 (Harriet?) 2 females 10-15 (one of these Hannah?) 1 female 30-40 (Jane)

In the 1850 US Federal Census for Warren Co., IL:

Household # 26 William Francisco-45-NY-Farmer Jane-48-NY Solomon-24-NY

Stephen Presson is 25-NY-Farmer (household 57) Harriet is 20-NY

Household #64 lists a Jane Terpening, age 10; on the next page living with Anson Gregory,age 44; and wife, Ann, age 40.

in the next household (#65) is Ezekiel Terpening 70-NY-Farmer Olive-63-NY George-26-NY David-24-NY William H.-22-NY

Peter and Hannah (Francisco) Terpening are on the next page in household 83. Peter Terpening-42-NY Hannah-27-NY Francis-6-IL Harriet-2-IL

Does anyone have any information on these Francisco's? Finding Hannah's family has proved extremely difficult for me. She and Peter Terpening (son of Ezekiel and Olive) were the parents of Minnie Terpening who married C. H. Miles in Moundville, Missouri in 1895, my great grandparent.

I would very much appreciate any help.

Swiler/BUCKLEY Info
H. Martinson -- Monday, 14 March 2005, at 11:17 a.m.

Daniel Swiler m Lydia Buckley. Lydia born abt. 1842 in KY. They had dau's, Jessie, Hattie, Alma & son, Daniel W. Lydia was deaf & dumb from a childhood illness. Daniel may have also been deaf & dumb. Her parents were Samuel & Margaret Cosson Buckley. Any help tracing this family would be appreicated & I will be happy to share. Daniel Swiler was also deaf & dumb. He is listed in the 1860 US Census as a pupil in the Illinois Institute for the Deaf and Dumb at Jacksonville, Morgan County, Illinois, one page after Lydia Buckley was similarly listed. He was also listed at home with his parents in Monmouth during the 1860 census, noted as deaf and dumb. Back in the 1850 census, he was at home with his parents in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and also listed as deaf and dumb in that census. His parents were presumably Jacob Swiler and his wife Agnes Baker.

There seems to be some uncertainty regarding the names of Jacob and Agnes children. One posted date of their marriage was 1823. The names of the children I have both precede this date by several years, followed by a gap of nearly 10 years in the birthdates of the children following the marriage. Clearly, something is wrong with this information. If the date is correct, then Jacob must have had a previous wife that no one has mentioned thus far on any website. Indeed, there is a difference of 14 years between Jacob's birth and Agnes's birth, which might indicate a second marriage for Jacob. It also seems illogical that there would be such a gap of births following the marriage to Agnes. Perhaps some children died and remain unknown, while others may have been listed with incorrect birth dates. All of these questions were brought up on the SWILER board several years ago, but my recent inquiries have gone unanswered.

There is also a bit of a mystery as to all of the intertwined marriages among several families, including the Swiler's. One constant seems to be their involvement with the Presbyterian church, including but not limited to the Huston/Houston, Rankin, and Hogue (many spelling variations) families, all common names found in Warren County. These are all intermarried with branches of my own family, and I still don't have a clear picture of all of the relationships. The Swiler family has a seperate chapter devoted to them in a published history of the Huston family.

Another item that should not be overlooked is the presence of Monmouth College, established by the Presbyterians. This is unproven, but it is believed that Christopher Swiler, born 1817, was also the son of Jacob Swiler. Christopher's son, John Wesley Swiler, apparently attended Monmouth College, gaining the title of "Professor" at some point. Professor John W. Swiler is listed twice in the 1870 census - at home with his parents in Monmouth, and as an instructor at the Illinois Institute for the Deaf and Dumb at Jacksonville. It looks as if your Daniel's nephew went on to be an instructor at the institute where he attended. I can't remember if I read that John established the Wisconsin School for the Deaf, but it seems like I did. Anyway, that is where he was during the 1900 census. Some information posted to the Internet claims that John was a wealthy banker in Burlington, Iowa, but that is incorrect. It was his son George Chandler Swiler who was the banker.

That brings me back around to another family tie that I don't yet fully understand. John Wesley Swiler married my first cousin 5 times removed, Harriet E. Chandler, daughter of George Chandler and Matilda Bull Goddard. Harriet was born and raised 30 miles west of Monmouth, just south of Burlington, Des Moines County, Iowa. Harriet was the only child of George Chandler, a well-to-do farmer. By that time, Monmouth was connected to Burlington by rail, making for easy transportation. I think perhaps Harriet may have also attended Monmouth College, possibly during the Civil War years. Also, it is said that your Daniel had a brother named Hiram - Hiram was listed in one census as a farm laborer for George Chandler in Iowa. 1850 US Census - Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania NA Series: M432 Roll: 772 Page: 28 & 29 Date: 2 September 1850 D/F: 417/417 Jacob Swiler, 61 M "W.

Hi Dan Wolfe. I didn't even know you had put this here. I have another person who is looking into the Pearce Family from Warren County, IL. Would you like their email address. It's somebody new. He's also looking for Thomas Pearce's wife's maiden name and such is. I have photos of Thomas's Pearce's tombstones from the Berwick Cemetery. He's buried there as it was his property that first started that particular cemetery. Also, would you have any photos of this family as they are original settlers and am trying to make a photo album of them. Thanks. and Happy hunting.

I had been searching for on-line data about Meridian Cemetery, and I found it at your site. The Henrietta Magers buried there in 1878 was the wife of Samuel S. Magers, and Samuel S. Magers was the son of David Magers. Thanks so much for the info! Great job! Keep it up!

Seeking John Alexander family
Catherine O'Shea -- Tuesday, 14 June 2005, at 1:51 a.m.

I am seeking further information on the family of John E. Alexander who, according to the 1860 census, was a schoolteacher in Monmouth. He was born in MD, around 1832. His wife, Mary C(atherine?), was born in MD around 1833. Their eldest child, Bertha, was born in Chambersburg, PA around 1857. A second child, Daniel E. appears to have been born in Monmouth in 1860. A final child, Annie, is listed in the 1870 census as born in IL (probably Monmouth) in 1862. Bertha Alexander attended Monmouth College, where she was a charter member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She married Charles T. Page, probably in Monmouth, around 1875. She was killed in the Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago in 1903. She was my great-grandmother. Thanks!

Clark's buried in the Monmouth Cemetery
Foxie -- Saturday, 23 July 2005, at 3:30 a.m.

Here are some Clark's I typed up and emailed to a lady who is looking for Clark's who lived in Point Pleasant Twp., Warren County, IL, in the 1800's. Here is some of her information: Also, some Clark's buried in the Stice Cemetery.

If related or such please get a hold of Sandra in AZ. I was trying to find a listing for the Monmouth Cemetery in Warren County, Illinois. I found your name beside a number of Warren County Cemeteries.

Do you have a listing for the Monmouth Cemetery? If so, could you check for Curtis Clark who died after 4/15/1910 and his wife, Emeretta/Emaretta (Clark) Clark, who died in February 1935. I believe Curtis was in the Civil War and may have a military marker.

I am also looking for John R Clark who died after June 1880 and his wife, Mary A (Bennet) Clark, who also died after June 1880. I do not know what cemetery they may be buried in. In the 1880 census they lived in Point Pleasant, Warren Co,, Illinois.

Thank you for any assistance you might be able to give. I appreciate your time and interest.

When my nephew was young, my brother & his wife named me as Guardian in their will. I'm sure if you checked "legal forms" on the internet there might be one you can print. They just emailed me a copy of their will and kept their signed and witnessed copy in a safe place. Also, some big stationary stores used to carry printed forms you could buy for very little. You might ask around.

Re: Guardianship Papers
Foxie Hagerty -- Friday, 12 August 2005, at 4:06 p.m.

Hi Kim, I'm going to answer yours first. You do have a problem. You need to get a lawyer. If you don't and also be on friendly terms with the parents. You will have to have permission from each parent to and also get them to sign the papers. Otherwise somebody from DCFS can come in and take him away from you. Also, make sure is there are no family members who would want to take him now or later. Make them sign papers if necessary. I've been through this myself when nobocy wanted two little girls that were dumped on me by a girl friend and she left and it wasn't until 5 or six years later then a family member did nothing but cause me heart ache and split the two girls up and cost me loads of money tryng to save my sanity and that of the two girls in which I had taken into my home and had guardianship over. It was a mess. Now I have legal custody of one Kate my daughter as I can and refer to her. I've raised this child from a baby and now nobody can take her from me.

But if I were you I'd get legal custody of the child in question and don't wait and don't wait for anything. It is best on the child to have a very stable home. Mine was in such an upset for so long I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Plus, the emotional strain it puts you through. Are you in IL or another state. Look into it now is my best advice I can give you. Do not wait. Foxie

Re: Guardianship Papers
Foxie Hagerty -- Friday, 12 August 2005, at 4:08 p.m.

Kim, You would have to call the courthouse in Monmouth. the address and the phone number is there on the my site. go back to the index page for Warren county and then click on Warren County resources. thanks Foxie you can also order documents online now.

Re: Guardianship Papers
Foxie Hagerty -- Friday, 12 August 2005, at 4:12 p.m.

You can get the papers at the courthouse. or your family lawyer. It only cost $85 to have them processed or it did a few years ago. I would go through a lawyer or your family lawyer. I know you can get some online somewhere. It also depends on what state you are in. But they are not hard to obtain when all parties are in agreement. thanks. Foxie

Cemeterie in Warren County, IL

Hello, I got a curious call this afternoon from the Presdient of the Warren County Genealogical Society of Warren county, IL, in which I just newly became a member. I want it noted that I did not buy my cemetery listings from them. I copied from the books the Galesburg Library many years ago for 10 cents a copy. I used them as a guide line on approaching the cemeteries in Warren county, IL. I have been to everyone. Walked them and jotted down notes on them, photographed them many many times for myself and also for other people. I put on my web pages the year they read them and such and also I have changes on my web pages where there were mistakes and such and others who had been left out of the equation altogether on account of they didn't even have a tombstones at the time. I'm trying to take away anything from anyone. And anyone who says that geneology is free has got to be nuts. Because I have yet to see it myself. In doing my web pages alone the cost for older and other materials has been plenty I care not to speak of. But I'm not trying to take away from any Geneological Society or anything. I've done my homework and copied so many files myself i could open my own library. YOu should see my office. I have a small house and my husband is always yelling because my 8 by 10 or a little smaller is just filled with information I have collected which most has been bought I do not see anybody or anyone out there giving me free information to put on my site unles it is their own information and that is their right. I'm not complaining either about it. It's just I didn't know that you couldn't when you buy information and because they have publication list then you can put it on the web. Nobody told me that until today. And today is October 13, 2003, thursday afternoon. If you would care to comment on this issue just post it here. Thanks. Have a great day. Foxie All cemeteries have been walked by me, my daughter and my 3-year old great nephew.

Peter Ezekiel Terpening
Colleen Kelly -- Saturday, 28 September 2002, at 4:26 p.m.

I am the gg grandaughter of Peter Ezekiel Terpening and Hannah Francisco. Peter is the son of Ezekiel and Olive (Peek) Terpening. Peter and Hannah had a daughter, Minnie, who married Charles Herbert (C.H.)Miles who was a son of John and Elizabeth C. (Brown) Miles. C.H. and Minnie wound up in Moundville, Vernon Co., MO where C.H. later owned Cooper College. He and Minnie both taught there and were later married (his third wife.) They had 3 children together: Manley, Herman and Hannah Caroline, my grandmother, who married James Allen Kelly in MO.

I am wondering if C.H. could be the son of the John Miles who was elected supervisor in Kelly Twp. in 1854. Also, does anyone have any info on Hannah Francisco's family? She was b. in May, 1823 in NY (my info says Mohawk, Herkimer Co).

I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who has info on these families.

Thanks, Colleen Kelly

Hi, Would like to say hi to everyone on the list plus, my extended family members who subsribe to the list if you could email me. I have had to do a Reboot to my computer and have lost everything. It was on account of the K-nine worm that went around and I got it and then when some files got quarintined I didn't know that I had to keep them and then put them back I deleted the files in quartine and my computer hasn't been the same since. So, over the week end I was on gateway.com and was downloading some files to fix the problem and it ended up I couldn't get back into my computer. I tried for two days and have just got it back up and running and would like to get your email addresses back as to keep in touch and to swap information again. I didn't have anything backed up on here so you won't be hearing from me. I wish I had of backed it up but I was waiting to buy a cd burner to put it on them and not the other ones. So, if you could drop me an email so I caN PUT you back into my address book for future use would appreciate. Also, am going to have to start all over on my familytreemaker for my genealogy and all of my webpages also. So, I've got my work cut out ffor me this summer with everything else that is going on.

Dear Foxie, Hope all is well with you. So far, August has not been good due to health problems of my husband, but we are taking each day as it comes. Was wondering about the reunion and if it will still be the first Monday in September and if it will be at the same location. If all goes well I am planning to attend.

Sorry that I have not gotten back to you as to my Terpening/Armstrong connection. I too am a decendent of Petrus down through William Bracken Armstrong and Olive Terpening (my Great Grandparents)

Good Luck to you and hope to see you on the first.

Bacon Family
Harold Shull -- Sunday, 16 November 2003, at 1:30 p.m.

A Land Patent issued(dated) March 19, 1818 to: Ruth Bacon, mother and the other heir at law of John Bacon, Deceased deposited Warrant No.15352 John Bacon, deceased, late a private in Chapman's Company of the 21 Reg of Infantry One Hundred Sixty Acres in Territory of Illinois James Monroe was President. Illinois statehood 12/03/1818 This area later become Warren County (formed 1825) and then Henderson County (formed 1841)

I am trying to determine if the above Bacon's were related to Silas and Chloe Bacon who came to the area that is now Henderson County in 1837 from New York and "entered into 160 acres Federal Land and began farming". I have been unable to locate a "Land Patent" in name of Silas for that time period Silas died in 1841 leaving Chloe with five children two of which were girls that died in 1844. They had three sons: Alonzo, Franklin and Ransom Franklin is my gg-grandfather, he married a Lucretia Lake in 1851 Henderson County and may have remarried to a Gennett/Jennett Anderson in 1863 Henderson County. Franklin was still in Henderson County in 1880. After that I have found no record of him. It may be that he went on to Mills or Pottawattamie Counties, Iowa which is where his son Charles and daughters Almira (Bacon) Priest and Castella Viola (Bacon) Shull moved to. I have been unable to find any record of Alonzo and Ransom after the 1850 census. Any information at all on the above family would be greatly appreciated and I am willing to share any information I have. Any information on the Lake family would also be appreciated. 1850 Henderson Ill census: Johnson Lake 65 NY.....Mary Lake 46 NY.....Elisha Lake 27 Ohio Lucretia Lake 18 Ohio.....Esther Lake 17 Ohio .......Solomon Lake 14 ILL .......Sarah Lake 12 ILL

McMurtry, Rice, McKee, Champion
Janice Katherine Lund -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 2:32 p.m.

William McMurtry was born in Mercer county, Ky., Feb. 20, 1801; removed from Kentucky to Crawford County, Ind., and in 1829 came to Knox County, IL, settling in Henderson Township. He was elected State representative in the Tenth General Assembly (1836), and to the Senate in 1842, serving in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth General Assemblies. In 1848 he was elected Lt. Gov. on the same Democratic ticket with A. C. French. Inaugurated Jan. 8, 1849. Last day in office, Jan. 10, 1853.

He was the eleventh man to serve as IL Lt. Gov. In 1862 he assisted in raising the One Hundred and Second Regiment Illinois Volunteers, and although advanced in years, was elected Colonel, but a few weeks later was compelled to accept a discharge on account of failing health. Died April 10, 1875.

Excerpted from the HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS, Bateman and Selby, 1901.

In 1829 William and James McMurtry with their families, formed a further addition to the pioneer settlement, locating on section 3 in Henderson Township.

Henderson Township was organized April 5, 1853. The meeting was called to order by William McMurtry; S. G. Dean was appointed Moderator, and W. R. Jackson, Clerk; 155 votes were cast at this election, resulting in the choice of Peter Frans for Supervisor; Martin W. Gay, Clerk; James McMurtry, Assessor; G. G. Dean, Collector; Thomas McKee and Abraham Jackson, Justices of the Peace.

Millicent Denbow wrote the following regarding her Mother and it mentions some of the early settlers:

The wolves were bold and early settlers had to be cautious of them. One of the women, Mrs.. Denbow, had a very odd adventure. She took her baby in her arms and went out in search of her sheep. She found them and started to drive home, but they would not go that way. It was growing dark, and fearing she would loose her way, she gave up and started the way she thought was home. The sheep went the other way. She wondered along, carrying her baby, and crossed a stream on a long. Finally feeling so tired she lay down to rest. A wolf's howl aroused her and she hurried on to a cherry tree, taking the baby's dress between her teeth, she began to climb up the tree, but the dress tore and the baby fell to the ground and rolled down a small hill. She recovered it and climbed up the tree, just in time to be out of reach of the wolves, that was sniffing the ground where the baby had rolled and she had walked, for she was barefoot and her feet were bloody, from walking on the briers. Mrs.. Denbow was afraid she would go to sleep, and she was very tired, and then she might drop her child, so she tied her long hair to a branch. When her husband came home he thought that the Indians had taken her, and he hastened to the home of the neighbors and asked them to help him search for her. One of the men crossed the river and she heard him shouting for her and answered. He called the other men and they went to her and assisted her down the tree after the dogs drove the wolves away. They took her to a house where a bright fire burned and warm clothes were ready. Her dress was torn to ribbons, by the bushes. After she was warmed, her husband took her home, and not until three weeks later was she able to be up. The story, as it is written, is very deficient, and does not include the names of those that went on the hunt for my mother. William McMurtry and James McMurtry and Nicholas Kontz and William Riley and my father, Solomon Denbow, rode the timber all night hollering for mother, and old William McMurtry found her just at daylight. He shot several of the wolves that had congregated about the foot of the tree. They say my mother was lost by hearing an Indian pony bell and she thought it was her sheep bell. They had to watch the three sheep all day to keep the wolves from them, and of an evening they had to pen them out in a pen that the wolves could not get through. My mother followed the sound of the bell down point branch about three miles before she discovered her mistake, then her feet had been scratched by the briers so badly that they left a trail of blood that the wolves followed.

My name is Janice Katherine Lund and I am a descendant of William McMURTRY (his 3rd Great Granddaughter). (Galesburg, Illinois, April 17, 1875, contributed by 3rd Great Granddaughter, Janice Chastain Lund)

Death of Ex-Gov McMurtry

Last Monday in the town of Henderson, the earth closed over the remains of one who had a brief quarter of a century ago wielded a power in the state affairs of Illinois equaled by few men of his time. Had Lieutenant-Governor McMurtry died twenty-five years ago the occurrence would have throbbed from corner to corner throughout the state. Today it caused only a passing notice outside of the immediate circle in which for half a century he lived and from which he has passed to the other shore.

Early Career

Lieutenant-governor William McMurtry was born in Crawford County, Indiana (My Note: He was "married" in Crawford County, Indiana but born in Mercer County, Kentucky - don't know who gave this erroneous information) where they resided about eleven years. In November, 1829 they came to Henderson Township, Knox County and settled. The family drove their stake in what was then a wilderness and there the subject of this sketch has buffeted the waves of time and fought the battles of life for forty-five years and was finally borne to his last resting place from the spot where they first settled.

Political Life

Mr. McMurtry has had a political career fraught with all the uncertainties. He was a leader in the Democratic party and has held many offices of local prominence, vaulted into the state legislature and finally reached within one step of the highest office in the state. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1836 and was re-elected in 1838 serving four consecutive years in that capacity. In 1841 he was elected state senator serving there for four years. In 1848 he reached his highest prominence in political preferment when elected Lieutenant-Governor under Governor French. He was also one of the state commissioners for building the penitentiary at Joliet and during the war was commissioned Colonel of the One Hundred and Second regiment of Illinois Infantry.

His Political Power

Although unostentatious in his address while at home, mixing indiscriminately with his constituency and ranking familiarly as one of the boys, Governor McMurtry would wielded a powerful influence in Springfield and his opinions were sought by the leading men of the time. Talking with some of his contemporaries in the days when he was at the zenith of his political career, we learn that either in his seat as a Representative and Senator, or outside of that body altogether, he was a power in himself and accomplished Herculean tasks in the matter of state legislation by his indomitable energy and singular influence among men.

He was not an educated man. On the contrary, it is said that the circumstances of his early frontier life had been of such a rough and wild character that he had not even learned to read when he reached man’s estate and was taught by his wife after marriage. Brought up as it were in a howling wilderness, he afterwards spent several years as a flat-boatman on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, away from all refining influences and had none of the advantages of education that favor the present generation. But he was possessed of a native eloquence that took hold upon his hearers and caused them to look up to him as one of the first and foremost men of the day and generation in which he flourished. He was a man of few words, but every word carried with it weight and meaning.

His Last Sickness

The deceased was a man of powerful physique and wonderful vitality, but ___ ____ _____ _____ (text missing off copy) to the great Leveler, Death. The immediate cause of death was Dropsy and for some time past, the deceased suffered beyond expression. He could neither recline nor stand up but was obliged to continually sit and could only sleep by resting his head upon pillows. It was relieved of earthly suffering on Sunday last.

The Funeral

The funeral took place Monday at Henderson and was very largely attended by people from the neighboring country. There were some seventy carriages in the procession besides many people on horseback and on foot. The services were solemnized with Masonic honors. G. C. Lamphere, of this city, acting as Worshipful Master. The remains were interred in Rice’s burying -ground about two miles northwest of Henderson and within a quarter of a mile of the first ground cultivated in Knox County.

clay/Mosser Cemetery
Leslie Shelley -- Monday, 31 May 2004, at 2:43 p.m.

Last year I went to the Clay-Mosser Cemetery to see my GGrandparents graves. They are listed in one of the Knox Co. Publications as being buried there. The cemetery was completely overgrown with thorny vines and tall brush. I found some gravestones but not the ones I wanted. Does anyone know if there are any pictures of this cemetery before it's decline? My family that I was looking for was John Tipton Barnett dob Oct. 20. 1809 dod Sept. 2, 1905 and Malinda Robison Barnett dob Nov. 11, 1806 dod. May 14, 1893. I had found a front page article about John T. Barnett's death in the microfilm from the Galesburg Republican Register. He had been Marshall of the day at the Lincoln Douglas Debate at Knox College and it spoke of his friendship with Abraham Lincoln. There is a new website to report problems with cemeteries in Illinois, but the message is never received. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it very much. I live in Calif. so I don't have the opportunity to come back yet with some heavy duty gardening tools! Thank you for reading this, Leslie Shelley b11301029@aol.com

Foxie Hagerty -- Thursday, 13 October 2005, at 2:04 p.m.

Hello, I got a curious call this afternoon from the Presdient of the Warren County Genealogical Society of Warren county, IL, in which I just newly became a memeber. I want it noted that I did not buy my cemetery listings from them. I copied from the books the Galesburg Library many years ago for 10 cents a copy. I used them as a guide line on approaching the cemeteries in Warren county, IL. I have been to everyone. Walked them and jotted down notes on them, photographed them many many times for myself and also for other people. I put on my web pages the year they read them and such and also I have changes on my web pages where there were mistakes and such and others who had been left out of the equation altogether on account of they didn't even have a tombstones at the time. I'm trying to take away anything from anyone. And anyone who says that geneology is free has got to be nuts. Because I have yet to see it myself. In doing my web pages alone the cost for older and other materials has been plenty I care not to speak of. But I'm not trying to take away from any Geneological Society or anything. I've done my homework and copied so many files myself i could open my own library. YOu should see my office. I have a small house and my husband is always yelling because my 8 by 10 or a little smaller is just filled with information I have collected which most has been bought I do not see anybody or anyone out there giving me free information to put on my site unles it is their own information and that is their right. I'm not complaining either about it. It's just I didn't know that you couldn't when you buy information and because they have publication list then you can put it on the web. Nobody told me that until today. And today is October 13, 2003, thursday afternoon. If you would care to comment on this issue just post it here. Thanks. Have a great day. Foxie All cemeteries have been walked by me, my daughter and my 3-year old great nephew.

George's obit says he was 2 or 3 when he came to live with this new family. George is my Great Grandfather)

We are not sure these are the natural parents or even if Steven and Mary were husband and wife....Maybe family? These are not the parent names listed on Electa's death certificate. I am 99.9999% sure these are the two children I am looking for though...Have documentation thus far.

Thank you for any help...I have a feeling this is urgent...maybe timing...don't know why....Thanks anyone... oops...forgot to include:

Children were raised in Monmouth, ILL....I have info for their adult life...trying to find when they were still children....Thx Does anyone have access to court records and could check for these two children? Monmouth, Warren, Illinois in 1860-62 perhaps....

CHAUNCEY/CHANCEY TERRILL (1801 CT - 1872 IL)
John S. Hoff -- Sunday, 12 February 2006, at 11:55 a.m.

Looking for the parentage and heritage of CHAUNCEY/CHANCEY TERRILL. According to 1850 (Ashtabula Co., OH) & 1870 Kewanee, Henry Co., IL) Census data, he was born someplace in "Conn. 1801", and was married to a "Mary" ?? (maiden name unknown). Virtually nothing about her is known beyond her birth in "NY in 1807"). He reportedly died on 1 Aug 1872 in Kirkwood, Warren Co., IL), and his wife on 26 Mar 1874. They are reportedly buried in the Center Grove Cem. They had 4 children: 1. ALAN JACKSON TERRILL (b: 17 Apr 1828 Albany, NY - 1903 Erie Co., PA) 2. MARTHA E. TERRILL (b: 1830 Albany, NY). 3. JOHN L. TERRILL (30 May 1833 Albany, NY - 1912 Steady Run, Keokuk Co., IA) 4. AMY ANN TERRILL (b: 1838 Albany, NY). I have tried but have had no luck identifying the parentage, exact date & place of birth of CHAUNCEY (later spelled "CHANCEY" dropping the "u"). I have also seen the middle initial "J." or "JOHN" used for his middle name or initial, which I thought might give some added insight to his ancesters' identity. All I know is hew was born someplace in "Conn. 1801", resided in Albany, NY from ~1826-1845, then moved to Ashtabula co., OH and lived there 1845-48, then Cleveland (1847-50), then Kewanee, Henry co., IL until after 1870. He is my 2XG Grandfather. I descend from JOHN L. TERRILL, who is my maternal 1XG Grand father. His daughter, EMILY LaVERA TERRILL SCOTT (1875-1930) was my grandmother, and her daughter, VALETTA FLORENCE SCOTT HOFF (1912-now) is my mother. I was born on 2 Jan 1946 in Des Moines, Polk Co., IA). I have "hit-the-wall", and any help or insight would be most welcome. I have about a dozen possible candidates for his parentage, all of whom are equally possible. Hopefully, there may be burial or death records someplace in Kirkwood, Warren co., IL as to their of their exact dates of birth, exact location, parentage, etc. Feel free to contact me directly in Chicago at JOHN S. HOFF (312) 346-8111 or at the following E/Mail address.
