I am looking for any information regarding Rebecca Leach Rice m. Nathan Smith Cheney in Hancock Co., IL 24 Dec. 1850. They were listed as neighbors in the 1850 census, which showed him as a farmer, 45, from NH. In later life, Rebecca lived with her son, M.L. Cheney on his farm in Section 4 near Pilot Grove, Hancock Co. Rebecca d. Nov 1905. I believe Pilot Grove Cemetary occupies the SE corner of the Cheney farm, later owned by Lyle Reidner. Any information on these families would be greatly appreciated.
