Seeking parents and/or other information on Sarah Clarinda Brown, born 13OCT1859.

Family lore suggests she was born in or around Pinckneyville, but she may have been an orphan. Did Orphan Trains ever come to Pinckneyville or surrounding area? If so, is there any way to check if she was on one of them?

She married John Presley Foster in Pickneyville on 11FEB1880 and left Illinois for Nebraska.

Any information between 1859 and 1880 would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Nancy Bond
Great-granddaughter of Sarah and John Foster

I am doing some research on my mother's side of the family.
My mother was born Lillian Robinson in Chicago on 3.28/1933 to a Lena Ransom (born 1912, DuQuoin, Ill) and James Robinson (born 1901, Montgomery, Ala). Lena's mother's name was Lillie Ransom McDonald (she married Eliza/Elijah McDonald in DuQuion) .

Lena also had a brother Lennamen or Lennaman (born 1914 in DuQuion) who may have served in WW2.
The brother if still alive would be about 94 or 95.

Lena died shortly after the birth of my mother as did James. My mother was raised by James's sisters in Montgomery, Alabama.

Could you be related to Lena Ransom or could Lena be related to your family?
Cannot find the death certificates for Lena, James, or Lillie.
I have the death certificate for Elijaj who died in 1966 in Chicago.

Seeking information about the Warners who (according to family history) were traders in Old DuQuoin in the late 1820s.
John W. Warner was born in Old DuQuoin ca 1829;
when John W. grew to adulthood, he was a riverboatman on the Ohio River.

Little is known about his family, but supposedly John W. had at lease one sibling - a sister named "Luella" whose married name was either Flagg or Fagg. Luella and husband were living in Shawneetown in the 1850s.

Any information about this illusive branch would be appreciated.
