In Reply to: looking on info on my ARGO family by Melynn Schneider of 434

Melynn gave you census listings from 1850 and 1880. They show who was living in the household and how old they were at the time. I hope she e-mailed or called.

Some may be cousins you didn't know about; some may be complete strangers. You might try searching yourself for specific names, using the link. If it is broken, try again after 10 - 15 minutes. It is under-funded, under-powered and very popular. You might try all counties, too, in case the happy couple eloped to a neighboring county. All of the ARGO brides or grooms in Illinois would over-load the server, so I limited my search to Piatt county. Play with it.

On
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp
you have your choice of Solomon argos - born 1827, 1832 and 1837. The 1837 one is on the PRF, which is the LDS version of the World Family Tree CD's. He (the 1837 one)is married to Mary Skillings.

Cherie LOGAN, the PRF contributor, has a Charles Argo, b. 1873, the son of Solomon and Mary Skillings. When you go to the link above, find Solomon, then click on "Submission Search" and enter just the surname Argo.
