Does anyone have info on the John MASON family of New Boston, Illinois? He was born about 1820 in Ohio. his wife's name was Mary and she was also born in Ohio (abt 1824) Children born in Ohio were Mary (1843), Sarah (1845), Henrietta (1847) and lucretia (1849). Children born in Wisconsin were Henry (1851) and Martin (1854). Charles franklin was born in 1859. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated.
Roger Crandell - Sep 10 1997
I am searching for the burial location of Eliza Jane Crandell (died 25 Jan.1879) and her husband Orin B. Crandell (died Dec 19 1884). We believe they are buried in Mercer County. We think it may be somewhere near Hamlet. Do you have any record of their burial location? Orin's widowed
daughter-in-law Pricilla Cooper Crandell and his grandson Arthur lived at Pricilla's brother's farm (Mr. H. C. Cooper) at the time of Eliza's death. We speculate they are buried near Hamlet. I have checked Rock Island Cemetery Records and came up empty. It's possible they could have been
buried in the cemetery near Milan which was destroyed by the land owner many years ago. Orin was the minister in Camden Mills (Milan) in the 1860s.

McCLELLAND ⁄ McCUTCHAN
I have been looking for the place where my greatgreatgrandparent's married for some time. Elizabeth Rachel McClelland married William McCutchan in 1859. He had lived in Mercer county for several years. Her father had bought land in Mercer but may have never lived there. Her brothers and half brothers moved to Mercer County. William had been born in Adams county, Ohio but had moved first to Parke county, Indiana and then to McDonough county, Illinois and then to Mercer county. Elizabeth McClelland was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania and may have lived there until her marriage. To my knowlege, William had not been in Pennsylvania and I have not found records there. I have lots of information on both these families and will share.

Pat Hays - Nov 26 1997
HAYS ⁄ BARNES
Evelyn Hays died November 23, 1997 in Aledo, Illinois. This is my childrens grandmother, and I want them to know more about her. One of my sons lives in England, and this would be a good way for him to learn some of his grandmother. I do not know the year she was born, but I do know it was April (probably about 17-19 when her first son was born in 1940). Her husband was also born in April, but I don't what year (maybe 1916, that rings a bell. ) I know that her maiden name was Barnes. Her father was Ralph Barnes. She and her husband were probably married in 1939 or 1938. They also had siblings who married. Her brother married her husbands sister, don't know his first name. Her husband has been gone a few years, but I believe they resided in that area most, if not all, of their lives. My x-husband, their first child, Melvin, was born in 1940, October 25. That was either in Seaton or Aledo. I'm afraid I know very little other than that. Thank you, appreciate your efforts. Pat Hays
