I'm looking for any information on my gg grandfather John Pointer/Poynter born abt 1827 and his 3rd wife Mary Jane Butcher Wood. They were married 03-12-1863 in Douglas county Illinois. (the Illinois web site has him listed as John Painter and Mary Jane Butcher Wood) They are listed on the 1870 census w/ children Millard 15, Hannah 7, John 5, Dorothea 4, Stephen 2, and Peter 1. (Hannah never married and lived w/ her brother Millard Pointer and his wife Allie Jane Fender). John was born in Kentucky around Rockcastle county Ky. He had 5 wives, the last 3 he married in Illinois.
4th wife Elizabeth Riley married 12-23-1876 in Clay county Illinois.
5th wife Elizabeth Russell White married 09-27-1885 also in Clay county Illinois.
Any information would be much appreciated.
