August 2010 Wayne Youngblood I research the YOUNGBLOOD family from Calloway Co, Kentucky.  Three sisters of my  first generation YOUNGBLOOD family married three JONES brothers and at least one of them moved to Johnson Co, IL (probably about 1847 or 1848 according to the birth places of children).   The JONES brothers had another brother named Absolom and I only know that he married a Catherine.  Your Illinois Absalom married Catherine Wilhelm in Johnson Co on Oct 1, 1843, so he must have come to Illinois before 1843.   Your Absalom died shortly before the birth of his son, John A Jones, on Feb 9, 1847.  It would seem logical that another of Absolom's brothers (William A Jones and wife Elvira C Youngblood Jones) might have moved the short distance from Calloway Co, KY to Johnson Co, IL to help out the widow of his deceased brother.  If anyone can confirm or deny that Absalom Jones  was the same Absolom Jones, son of William D Jones of Calloway Co, KY, please advise Wayne Youngblood, 121 Arbor Ridge Dr, Mayfield, KY  42066

Darrell L. York Sr

My gg-grandfather, John York is on the 1818 and the 1830 Johnson County, Illinois census. He was born in NC and Sarah we believe to have been born in TN (not sure)
I have a copy of the census. Can you help me find anything else about him and his family. We have established from Family Records that Sarah's maiden name was Mangrum. since she was born abt 1808 that she might be
related to the Henry Mangrum who is also listed on the 1818 and 1830 Johnson County, Illinois census.
I have not been able to find where my John York and Sarah married. I know this is my John York because of information from one of the sons CSA Pension File in Texas.

My gg-grandparents wound up in 1840 in Clark Co. Arkansas, then in 1850 they are in Hempstead County (Missouri Township) Arkansas. They then left there in 1858 or 1859 and came to Navarro County, Texas settling near Pisgah Ridge at Richland Crossing near the small community named Pursley which is southwest of Corsicana, TX. They are all on the 1860 Navarro County, TX census and Sarah (Mangrum) York, my gr-gr-grandmother and other members of the family are listed on the 1870 census for Navarro Co. TX , but my gr-gr-grandfather, John York,who is not listed is believed to have died just prior to 1870 there in the Pursley, Texas community.
Can anyone living there in Illinois or researching Yorks there share with me any knowkedge they have of some York there related to my John York ?
I have info on them in Ark. and then on to Texas and their ages off of the 1850 Hempstead Co.Ark. census.
Also I have the Ark. marriage info. Those children old enough married in Ark. before coming on to Texas.

Per the 1830 Ill. census, compared to the 1850 Ark. census they had one son die before coming
to Ark. I was hoping someone might help me find out about this.
John put his age at 53 on the 1850 Ark. census,
so he was born in NC abt 1797. Sarah was 42 birth place unknown. It is where and what happened between 1800 and 1830 that I would like to find something out.
Any connection to my York Family that someone is aware of there in Illinois or elsewhere I would appreciate hearing from you.
