I'm looking for information on the Jacob Phillips family of Clay City, Clay County, Illinois. On the 1900 and 1910 census he and Anna are listed as having the following children:
Roy born in Jan. 1887
Thurman born in June 1888
Jane born in Nov. 1889
William born in Sept. 1892
Edwin born in July 1894
Ora born in July 1898
I believe that this Jacob may be my great-grandfather who deserted his 1st wife and children in Crawford County, Kansas about 1884-85 and wasn't seen again until 1916 when he died in Missouri. Does anyone have any later knowledge of the Illinois Jacob or his whereabouts after 1910? You can email me directly by clicking on my name above.
