I would appreciate any information regarding the death or burial of Mary (McNeely) Regester, who was born in Ohio about 1808. In the 1850 census, she is with her husband (and first cousin) Thomas Regester and children in Henderson county, Illinois. By the 1860 census, Thomas is listed in Hancock County without Mary. From the Illinois marriage index, it would appear that one of their children may have married in Hancock county during 1854. Thomas later moved to Kansas with several children in tow. Thank you!
