I am researching Benjamin Jones and his family.
A Benjamin Jones was located in Washington Co., IL in the 1818 State Census and in the 1820 Fed Census.
He then was found in Fayette Co., IL in the 1830 and 1840 Fed Census.
I am looking for information about Benjamin and his family before and up to 1820.
Where he came from . What were the names of his family members.
I know about two of his sons, Bowling and Mark.
I don't know his wife's name or any daughter's name.
I think Benjamin Jones was in the Shoal Creek area for at least two years.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Born 28 Jan 1838 in Germany (probably near Buer, Melle, Hannover)
Died 11 Jan 1916 in St. Louis, buried Venedy, Ill on 14 Jan 1916.
Father Jobst Brockmann Mother ??
 
I have a Jobst Brockmann that is my gr gr gr Grandfather, he was from the Melle, Germany area and married Clara Louisa Riske before immigrating on the Agnes, Bremen to New Orleans arriving 9 Jan 1943.
 
My grandmother was Caroline Marie Brockmann born 28 Nov 1842, so she was born aboard the ship.
I think Maria Brockmann Kuelker was a sister but I would appreciate knowing more.
If Marie's mother was Clara Louisa Riske then we have a match.

I'am looking for information on the many LANEYS who are buried in the LANEY CEMETERY in Lively Grove, Washington County, IL.
My ancestor could be the "Elizabeth Laney 24 Sep 1815-10 May 1888" buried there.
Elizabeth Murphey was born in TN about that time, married Samuel BURR in Perry County, IL. 31Jan 1843.
After Samuel Burr died in 1855, Elizabeth married John B. LANEY 22 April 1858 and moved to Lively Grove with her five children (Rufus H, William Carney, Elmira Jane, James Murphy, Martha Ann BURR) to join the LANEY family also with five children by the 1860 Lively Grove Washington Co, IL census.
The five BURR children are listed as BURRELL mistakenly on the census.
John B. LANEY and Elizabeth had a son about 1859 named Lafeyette B. LANEY.
I would like to connect with any LANEY researchers who could help me establish who the Elizabeth Laney (1815-1888) buried in the cemetery is and where the other LANEYS buried there fit into the family.
Thanks,

I am researching our LIVESAYs branch living in Washington Co. (1830 - 1916) and would appreciate it very much if anybody has information on Leonard LIVESAY and his wife Elizabeth. Leonard, at age 12, shows up in the 1880 census living with his parents John W. LIVESAY and Elizabeth LOGAN SANDERS LIVESAY.
 
Although Leonard's wife Elizabeth, or "Bessie", turns up in the Jefferson KY census in 1910, where they had re-located with their children, Lorraine, Mary A. and Norman. ... I have no way of determining what her surname was. However, the census did show that she was also born in Illinois though both her parents were born in Tennessee.
 
If any of these names ring a bell. ...would you be willing to share?

Hello, I am trying to find any information on a family that lived in Washington county in the 1930's.
I have found the McBride family in the 1930 census and they apparently lived in Nashville, IL (Washington Co) at that time. I am not sure how long they had lived there before the census.
I have listed Harry (H), Laura (W), and daughters Faye (I think it is Mabel Faye) and Helen Louise McBride.
I would like to know if you have any information on whether Helen gave birth to a child on or around 11/11/1929 in St. Clair Co, IL.
This child was placed up for adoption at 6 months of age and was given the birth name of Richard Kenneth McBride.
It is my understanding that he was under the guardianship of a Clarence B. Williams for the first 6 months of his life.
I am not sure who Clarence is, whether he was his birthfather or just someone maybe in the family somewhere who took care of him.
I am still researching that.
 
After he was adopted by the Eberhart family in Edwardsville, IL, his name was changed. I didn't know if you know any of the McBrides that might have information on this birth. I am searching for Helen Louise McBride because the child that she had was my father. I don't know if this is the correct Helen McBride or not but would appreciate any information that you can give me.
 
I would like to see if my father has any birth family left. He is 78 years old and if there are any out there I would like to tell him about them before he dies. I would also like to know for my family tree that I am making for my children and health issues.
Since it has been 78 years I thought this information should be made public.
Someone somewhere has the other copy of my father's birth certificate and his adoption papers.

 
I hope that you can either verify or discount whether this is the correct Helen or not so I can continue on with my search if it isn't.
Thank you very much for your time.
I can be reached at the email below.

I am researching the Hugh McCaughn (McAughn) family that was living in
Washington Co. IL in 1860.
Hugh McCaughn was a school teacher in the Ashley area.
He was originally from Maryland where he married Francenia Harritt
(originally from Franklin Co. PA) sometime in 1853-1854.
Hugh was 50 years old and his wife, Francenia was 25 years of age,
according to the 1860 Washington Co. census.
In 1860 Hugh and Francenia had 3 children, Henry D, Charles A and Catherine McCaughn.
In the 1870 census, Hugh is still living in the same area,
but appears to be living on his own in a residence hotel.
There is no record of Francenia or the children in 1870 census or thereafter.
There is no record of Hugh after 1870.

I am researching Millers in Washington Co. IL
My Millers came from Tennessee about 1842, settled in IL.,
then some on to St. Louis.
Alexander Miller was born in TN. about 1820
We do not know the name of his first wife.
1850 Census Records: Washington CO.

Alexander  	30    TN.  Farmer
John           	12    TN.
Joseph        	 9    TN.
Elizabeth     	 7    IL.
Mary           	 4    IL.
Pemelia  	2/12  IL.
THERE IS NO WIFE - but a 2 month old baby
which means the wife was alive in 1850.
I checked the 1850 Washington CO. Mortality Schedule.
There is listed a :
      Mary MILLER 33, died in April of Dropsy
      Frederick MILLER 6, died in April of croup. I believe these to to be mine.
They would have fit into the 1850 census nicely.
Also since the 9 year old was born in TN and the 7 year old in IL.
I'm guessing they came to IL. about 1842.
He marries Jane Ayres in 1852
1860 Washington Co. Census
Alexander 40 TN. Farmer Jane T. (Ayers) 25 IL. Joseph 19 TN Farmer Sarah E. 10 IL. We don't know if Pemelia and Sarah Elizabeth are the same person or William B. 8 IL. 2 different girls really William T. 5 IL. close together. James W. 2 IL. 1870 Washington Co Census Alexander 51 TN.
Jane 35 IL.
William T. 15 IL.
James W. 12 "
Adam B. 10 "
Charles E. 6 "
Oliver D. 3 "
Alta 6/12
So Alexander's kids look something like this
1. John 1838 TN.
2. Joseph 1841 TN.
3. Elizabeth 1843 IL.
4. Mary 1846 IL.
5. Frederick ? 1844 IL.
6. Pemelia 1850 IL.
Sarah Elizabeth " "
7. William B. 1852 IL.
8. William Thomas 1855 IL.
9. James W. 1858 IL.
10. Adam B. 1860 IL.
11. Charles E. 1864 IL.
12. Oliver D. 1867 IL.
13. Alta 1870 IL.
14. Mary 1872 IL.
15. Eddie 1875 IL.
The 1880 census gave us the last 2.
I would like to hear from anyone that is connected with any
of the Millers on this post. Names that connect to mine are
McGill, Ayers, Cameron, Tate, Earls, Wilson, Hawley, & Pierce.

      I am seeking any info on my gg grandmother, Nancy Whitman Richards Palmer,
married to Riley S. Palmer in New York in 1838;
lived in Irvington from about 1868 until her death in November, 1872.
      Family info is that she was buried in Quick Cemetery in Irvington, and later
(perhaps after 1909) was moved to the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Nashville to join her husband, Riley; who died in 1909.
      Two of their daughters married Solomon Elwood, of Nashville.
Their daughter, my great aunt Emma Louise Palmer, was born in Irvington in 1882.
      Riley Palmer was somehow listed as "Horace" Palmer in the 1870 US Census in Irvington.
He may have been one of the founders of a Methodist Episcopal church in Irvington,
if such was established during those days.
Any help will be appreciated.

I have been looking for any record I can find on my
Great Grandfather JOHN E. PRENTICE.
He was married to EMELINE FOSTER (CHARITY EMEMINE OR EMILENE FOSTER)
on 21 Oct. 1856 in Washington County, Illinois.
The daughter of the ASA FOSTER who married MARY LIVELY,
on February 5, 1835.
Both of these took place in Washington County. Illinois.

 
That is the last record I can find on him in that County.
It seems to me that if John was married in that county there should be
some records on him.

 
I would like to try to find out where he was born and who his parents were.
I would also like to obtain a copy of his marriage licence,
I found the record once, so I know it's out there somewhere.
I just can't find it again.
however I don't know where to write or what fees I should be prepared
to pay.
I would like to find that record again and also find out
to how I go about obtaining a copy for genealogy purpose.
I do know that the record listed my grandfather Asher Prentice as their son.

 
His son, [ my Grandfather] ASHER PRENTICE was born in Troy, Ilinois on Feb., 2, 1857.
ASHER's son, my father ELMER ASHER PRENTICE was born in Troy [Jarvis township],
Illinois on Sept., 11, 1891.
My Great Father JOHN had to be in the Area for the birth of his son.
The problem is, I can find no birth record on either my Grandfather, or my Father.
I can find neither a birth record or a death record on my G-Grandfather JOHN.
What makes matters even more confusing is that JOHN's wife EMELINE
died in Washington County on the same daay as her father ASA FOSTER April 12, 1877.

 
I wonder if there is a source that I have overlooked to find the records I seek.
Which are:
Birth record for ASHER or ELA ASHER PRENTICE.
A birth record for ELMER ASHER PRENTICE.
A birth record for JOHN E. PRENTICE [calculated birth year would be 1835]
A Death record for JOHN
 
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am researching family history and my great great grandfather;
Jacob Randoll,
was a doctor in Okawville. ILL., he was born in Germany in 1826.
He married 3 times and one of these marriages produced my
great grandmother Elizabeth Randoll. It is my understanding
he was a practicing physician and lived in Okawville until his
death in 1910.
My great grandfather Fritz (Frederick) Grube also lived in Okawville.
He married Elizabeth Randoll and they had (5 children) including
my grandmother Katherine Grube.
I would like any information on how to get any documents,
newspapers or photos that may exist.

Notes on February 2009 trip
My last stop at the Belleville Library's Genealogy section was quite revealing.... at least I think so. At St Anthony's and St Liborius Churches at Lively Grove and St Libory IL I found more names that could be shared between, Oldenburg, the Effingham area, Washington/St Clair County area and Idaho/Washington/Oregon/Nebraska/Texas. It dawned on me as I was reading through the histories of the churches, in particular of the Catholic church at St Libory, that in some cases the Franciscans may have sent the german Catholics out from Teutopolis to start various communities. That is why there were also Jansens and Bueschers and Bosses and Albers and Luechtefelds and Behrmanns and Rickelmanns that are in so many of these communities. John Jansen, a private local historian, of Effingham County says that his relatives moved from the St Libory/Washington county areas to the Effingham county areas.
 
I am still tracking down information on the Romains country of origin but to no avail. At least with the Bueschers, it looks like they and the Rickelmanns come from the Hanover area. I couldn't find the grave sites of the youngsters (Elizabeth Romain died 1888, Franciscus "Frank" Romain died 1885 and Mariann Catherine Romain died 1885) that are buried in St Anthony's cemetery but I couldn't read several of the headstones.
 
They moved to Keuterville, ID around 1888 and Mary died around that same time in Idaho.
I've done quite a bit of research as did my grandfather Frederick back in the 50s.
Thank you so much,

I have long suspected your Wilhelmine Hedemann is closely related to the family listed below, who immigrated from the Oldenburg Germany area in 1834. You indicated that your Wilhelmine immigrated around 1857, which is about the same time a Nicolaus Hedemann also immigrated from Germany to Venedy. Nicolaus, who was born around 1833, later appeared in Venedy church records as a god-father to one of Brunke Hedemann's (listed below) children.

Am looking for information on Nancy Mahala Troutt who married
Calvin Singleton. She was the daughter of John Troutt Jr. and
Annis L. Herrill Troutt from Jefferson County.

 
Mahala and Calvin were married on May 13, 1876.
Their daughter, Sovenia (Venie) was born Feb. 10, 1877.
Calvin died of lung congestion lasting 36 hours, in November 1878.
I cannot find Mahala or Venie in any of the 1880 census.
Does anyone have any information pertaining to either of them?
I need to know when Mahala died, and why, as well as where she
is buried. I'm guessing she must have died before the 1880 census.
Calvin's brother, Essick Francis Singleton, and his wife,
Dina Moode/Moody/Mode raised Venie in/near Okawville, IL.
E. F. and Dina weren't married until 1884, so that means Venie
and Mahala had to be living someplace! Calvin's death certificate
listed him as married, not widower. Therefore, Mahala must not
have died in childbirth with Venie.
 
Mahala had siblings named Henry Preston, Lydia E., Pleasant Alfred,
Addison, Malina, Barbara and May Ann "Polly".
If anyone has any information on any of these people,
please, email me at ouizee47@hotmail.com.

I am seeking information on my Walker ancestors. Specifically I have verified links to
George W. Walker b. 1826 d. 1902 m Elizabeth Walker b 1829 d. 1920.
According to Elizabeth's death certificate her parents are William Walker and Frances Dagett.
I am interested in getting information on the following probate records:
Walker Ethaldra - Estate Box 96
Walker G. W. - Estate Box 288
Walker James - Estate Box 18
Walker William - Estate Box 24
Walker William - Estate Box 44
Is is possible to get a preview of these records without paying to have the
contents of the entire boxes copied?
I do not want to spend a lot of money on a dead end.
Thanks,
Brett D. Weems

Requesting information on brothers Frank and Philip Wilson.
Frank born 1831 and Philip born in 1839 both in North Carolina.
Philip married Jane Martin in Washington Co., IL in 1859 and
he died about 1874 in Washington Co.,
but no information as to where he is buried or why he died so young.
Can't trace his family back to NC and have been at a brick wall for years.
Frank Wilson was married to Naomi and died in 1918 and is buried in Liberty Cemetery.
 
Thanks

Anyone out there researching the Windmoeller / Windm˘ller surname?
 
I've just found out that an ancestress's sister and family immigrated
on the same ship, arriving in New Orleans on the "Adler" on 11 Nov
1857. They were Caroline Wilhemline "Charlotte" ROWEKAMP (lots of
variants on this) and Christian Friedrich WINDMOELLER, with children
Wilhelm, Louise, Friedrich, and Carl, of Blasheim or Stockhausen,
Westphalia.
 
A probable nephew, Carl ROWEKAMP, age 19, was also on the ship. I
haven't been able to track him or the WINDMOELLERs in the census yet,
(probably haven't been sufficiently creative with my spelling) though
I've been told there are living WINDMOELLER descendants.
 
Thanks, Marsha L. Ensminger
