? Marriage Records ?
Had a question from someone asking if there were any
marriages recorded in Washington county Illinois for
the period 1818-1831? I only know of the marriages
from 1831 and later which appeared in the old Washington
county Illinois quarterly and are now on this web site.
Does anyone out there have an answer for this one?
Would a search of the courthouse uncover earlier marriages?

My 3 great grandfather was Alexander Anderson who came from Warren Co. KY
to Washington County (before it was formed) and settled there by 1817.
I descend from the son of Alexander and Rebecca -- James Anderson --
and through James' son Thomas W. Anderson.
 
My search continues.
I know there is a lot of Anderson history to uncover in Washington Co.
(i.e. the maiden name of Alexander's wife, Rebecca)
 
Thanks again !

I am looking for any information available on "Alonzo Baldridge"
who lived in the Irvington area in the mid to late 1800's.
He was supposed to have been a barber in Irvington.
Had a son, Charles A., born in 1882. I know that Alonzo was
married to a woman with the last name of Brown and, in fact,
is buried with the Browns in Fouts cemetary in Jefferson County.
 
Have been told that Alonzo was a son of Dornton Baldridge,
but Dornton's records do not show a son by that name.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is currently the only
gaping hole in my geneology records.
Thank you in advance for any reply.

and/or Catharina Bimmerman or their possible descendents/children.
They resided in or around Nashville, Illinois in the late 1880's/early
1890's. He was born around 1836 in Missouri (I believe), settled in the
Nashville area sometime after the Civil War, and died sometime around
1892-1895. I know nothing about her other than her name and that she
filed for his Civil War pension as his widow. Any help with this would
be greatly appreciated.

four Bochantin brothers who immigrated in the 1870's.
I was told two came to the United States,

My father remembers the South American branch coming for a visit when
he was a teenager; but they had a hard time understanding the polish with a Spanish accent.
He does not know if they returned to South America or
relocated to the United States.
 
I am also not sure if the brothers that the story is told about involve
Anton (1853-1896), Franx (1864-1933) and Bernard.
Or is it is Michael (my branch), martin (Chicago branch),
Juan Martin (Guatemala branch)
and Julius (Michigan branch) who I have not been able to connect to the tree.

I am trying to get information on my g-grandparents and gg-grandparents.

 
My g-grandparents were Johann Frederick Wilhelm Brockschmidt and Johanna
Maria Dorothea Buchmueller. Johann (my grandmother always called him William)
was born 8 may 1829 in Venne, Hannover and came to the U.S.A sometime in 1841.
Johanna was born 16 Jan. 1839 in Hannover. Johann and Johanna were married
7 June 1855 in Vennedy, Washington Co., IL at St. Salvator Lutheran Church.

 
My gg-grandparents were Johann Dietrich Christian Brockschmidt and
Marie Hackmann. Johann (called Dietrich in the U.S) was born 30 Dec. 1791
in Venne, Hannover. Marie was born 22 June 1794, also in Venne.

 
I was told by a contact in Venne that the Brockschmidt came to the U.S.A.
as a family in 1841. I have not been able to find them on any ship's list.
Also, I was told that Dietrich and Marie are buried in Washington County, Il.
I have not been able to locate any record of their burials.
 
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

BRUNS/STOLTE
Gerhard Henry STOLTE (Istrup, Germany) was in Venedy when he was killed in
May 1866. I have a small article from the Belleville Daily Advocate about the
murder. The family has head that there were several children who were
dispersed around the area. Gerhard was married to Gesina Bruns (from marriage
certificate of son, Henry Gerhard Stolte and Friedericka Janssen in St.
Liborius parish, St. Clair county).

 
The family believes that Gesina died before Gerhard's murder. However, I
found an obit for the son that said he had a half-brother and sister,
KINKLER, and several of the son's childrens' baptismal certificates are
witnessed by KINKELAAR.

 
Anyone with information on this family, please contact me and I will share
what I have found in the St. Liborius records and in the obituaries. You can
reach me at maestrowz@aol.com

I am searching for my father's parents.
Their names are William ( I think that is correct) and Anna Buchholz.
They have lived in this area for a long time. Possibly all their lives.
They are buried in Hoyleton in a Lutheran cemetery. I don't know the name of the cemetery.
But I know that it is a German cemetery.
All of my father's sisters and brother are buried there. Or at least I have been told that.
But I don't have any idea the name of the cemetery.
I believe it is next to the Lutheran church. I am sure it is an older cemetery.
I am needing information of their birth and death records and marriage records also.
Do you know if they will have all those that are buried in the cemetery listed online ?
And I would like to know the name of the church and cemetery.
I have been told that Hoyleton is a township now and Washington is the county.
I would appreciate any and all help.

Peter and Dina were siblings (mother was Catherine).
They were raised on a farm in Okawville, IL and were
teenagers during the 1880 census.
Sovenia was an orphan, and was raised by her Aunt "deenie".
She also had an uncle named Peter Moody.
Whether they were blood relatives, or the titles were
merely honorary I'm not sure.

Thomas J Fox moved his family (wife, James, Nancy, William, and Harrison) to
Washington Co IL about 1861. Then, he left to fight in the Civil War. It
is possible that he moved to this area because he had relatives he could
leave his family with. Other children were born in IL in 1863, 1866, 1869.
This family is on the 1870 Jefferson Co IL census Two other children were
born here. I would like to make connection with a possible family where the
wife and children of Thomas could have lived while he was away. I do not

My husband's grandmother, Emma Cowie Ginger was raised by
her grandparents in DuBois Township after her parents died (in Chicago?).
 
Emma Cowie appeared on the 1880 census for DuBois with her
grandparents, Henry and Catherine Ginger.
 
I obtained Catherine Ginger's death record from the Washington County
seat at Nashville (d. 1886). However, the record didn't list the cemetery -
could burials have been on farm property at that time?
 
Thank you for any information on the GINGER family living in DuBois
from at least the l870 census (Henry & Catherine Ginger with two children
William and Elizabeth) and then the 1880 census raising the grandchildren.

Looking for any information about Thomas Goodwin and wife
Sarah found on 1870 US Census of Washington County
(City of Nashville) on page 427a. He was listed as born in
Ireland. His wife Sarah was born in Illinois, and he had a

he was a railroad worker. Need to know if his wife's maiden
name was Starling or Sterling, and where her family came from.

I'm looking for information about my ancestor Joshua Grimes.
In 1870, he was in the Hoyleton, Washington County, IL, census,
as a 25-year old farmer, living in township 1, range 2.
He had a family named "Carter" living with him:
Samuel, Mary, John, George, and Edward,
but Joshua Grimes was the "head" in the census, and I know his father
(who died in 1845 in Missouri) had owned this land. I found an "Index for Pre-1910 Probate Records" of Washington County, IL,
and it had listed: GRIMES, JOSHUA Estate 14

 
THANKS for any information you can give me.

I am researching my family that homesteaded in Illinois in the 1850's.
My great-great-great-grandfather along with his
three son's homesteaded land in Bolo township.
It was in sections 29, 31, 32 and 33.
Our family, to my knowledge, has always been Baptist.
Do you know of anyone who I might be able to contact
to see if they might be buried in Old Concord Baptist Cemetery.
My great-great-great grandfather had a very common name, Isaac HALL,
but his son who was my great-great grandfather name was Elithan HALL,
sometimes spelled Elathan HALL.
Any help that you could offer would be appreciated.

I have been researching the family of my great-grandfather and great-grandmother,
Fred and Sophie Harre.
They were married in St. Louis in the 1850's and later moved to Washington County.
They both died during the 1870's and were listed on the 1870 census as Fred and Sophie Haar.
My grandfather (Henry Harre) was one of their children and my mother was Ida Harre. (1908-1969).
My Harre ancestors lived in Covington Township on farms near New Minden and Covington. However, on the 1870 census,
Fred and Sophie Harre appear to have been in Irvington Township.
Because of the incorrect spelling on the 1870 census, list the family as both "Harre" and "Haar."
 
I have extensive information on the Harre families and their descendants who settled south of Nashville around 1880 but have found no link between them and my great-grandfather. My great-grand father had a brother (Charles or Carl Harre) who was also married in St. Louis before 1860 and moved to the New Minden area at about the same time. While I have the approximate birth years for both my great-grandfather and his brother from their death records, I have been unable to determine the exact dates and location of their births. I feel confident that it was in Germany.

I was born and grew up on a family farm (Edward H. Peithman)
south of Hoyleton in Washington County.
In about 1857, Adam Haun , wife Jane and six children moved from TN to Washington County, IL.
I would like to determine the site of their first home there.
I believe that it might have been the
      West 1/2 of the of the Northwest 1/4, section 36 of Hoyleton Township.
The Bureau of Land Management lists it as
      W2NW, Sect. 36, Township 01S, Range 01W Meridian 3.
The BLM lists Thomas B. Afflack becoming the first owner in 10/08/1838.
Adam Haun may have purchased the tract from Afflack in about 1857.
 
Thanks for any help that you can provide.

I am inquiring about Anson A. Hinkley who lived in Washington Co. until 1920 he lived in Ashley as well as DuBois and possibly Radom.
He was born in 1857 and expired in 1920. is buried in Ashley IL. CemetEry. he had sons James M., George M., Olin Telfair, Otis, and daughter Agnes. I was recently in Ashley and was trying to retrieve info. I was told that he had come over from England but cannot verify this fact. my grandfather who was my mother's father was Anson's youngest son Olin Telfair Hinkley born 1905 and died 1974. He is buried in Marietta GA. He was a career army man enlisting in 1928 in New Orleans at the rank of private and commissioned in 1942 as a 1st Lt retiring with the rank of Colonel in 1954 at Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, Alabama. with service in WW II and Korea.
All of the Hinkleys including daughter Agnes who was married to a man named Sims ( Simms?) are buried in the small graveyard off highway 15 just west of the town of Ashley. as far as I know, Anson was married to a woman named Almira and know nothing other than what I saw on the gravestone. She died in 1916 was born 1862. I have tried to find data concerning them and even pored thru a register of citizens and found a name of Hinckley (not the same spelling of course). I met a William Shelton and a Marvin Bolt, who both knew George M. Hinkley ( who I met once) and apparently Geo. Hinkley was a well known letter carrier or a rural letter carrier as it was back in the day. I remember from being spawned and raised over in neighboring Indiana that is was the norm for those folk who lived outside of city limits to have an address that usuallly said RR 1 box xx or RFD box xx or such. well in any event if you can give me information I would be grateful and you can reach me at :

Searching for origin and ancestors of Albert Amos Hyatt who was said to have
been born in Elkton, Bond County, Illinois on 18 April 1843
[ as per this web site -- http://www.carolyar.com/Illinois/Family/Hyatt.htm ]
and his possible connection to Amos Hyatt listed on page 97 of the
Pre-1910 Washington County Probate Records.

 
Also searching for a possible connection to E. W. Hyatt listed on page 71 of
the Pre-1910 Washington County Probate Records.

 
The only Elkton we've been able to locate in Illinois is in what is now
Southern Washington County and may, at the time, thought to be in Bond
County when it stretched all the way to the North border of Illinois.

 
Albert Amos Hyatt served in the Union Army throughout the Civil War and in
1870 he established a Lumber business in McLeansboro, Hamilton County, Ill.

 
On 30 December 1872 Albert married Mary Virginia Rathbone in McLeansboro and
raised a family there until his death on 29 July 1922.

 
Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
