I am looking for any information on the Reverend Edward Troy. He moved to Pike County, Illinois around 1830. He married Mary Jane Stratton, and had one daughter Mary Candace Troy on 8/20/1845. He was the son of Charles Troy and Lydia Repsher. Charles Troy died around 1828, and both Edward Troy and Mary Stratton died around 1845-1849.
The Reverend Edward Troy founded the methodist episcopal church at New Hartford about 1840.
Can anyone help me about who to contact to get local info (maybe newspaper listing, or ANY info I can about this family?)
I appreciate it a lot
