I have recently started research on my maternal lines and seem to be at a standstill with my Davis/Kimbrough line. I have found quite a bit of information that I am sure relates to my Sarah Kimbrough who married Lewis M. Davis however I cannot seem to connect to any particular Kimbrough or Davis family. My line is as follows:

Sarah Kimbrough m. Lewis M. Davis in 1840 in Hancock County, IL . He is listed in the census as a minister. In the 1850 census he and Sarah had 2 young girls living with them, Sarah Finley and Isabella Kimbrough. I am assuming they were the 1860 census the girls are gone but their own children are now listed. They are as follows:
Emily L. b. 5/1842 m. Michael Suey (Sney)on 1/16/1862
Walter James Davis b. abt 1846
Amanda Ellen b. abt 1848
Susan F. abt 1852
Martha E. abt 1858
Forrest unk
Frank Winston unk
Charles Davis unk

in the 1860 census they lived near the Bryant's and Downey's. I know that Emily and Michael Moved to Clark County, MO and then on to Montgomery & Jewell County, KS and to Nuckolls, NE.

I would like to find out information on Emily's siblings and her Davis and Kimbrough Ancestors..any assistance will be greatly appreciated. I will gladly provide any material I have that may be of interest to anyone. Thanks
