Amelia, born abt 1823 wed Dec 24, 1839 to Robert Taylor
Susanha, born Oct 1, 1825 in Washington Co. and died, Jan 11, 1842 Washington Co., Md.
John and Eve's son Jacob sold all of their household good to his mother and brother, (Henry) before going to Illinois. Henry's son John took his Uncle and Aunt to live near his family in Jones Hollow on the Farmington Road in Illinois.
I have this family traced to precent but we are still looking for the decendants of two sons. William born abt 1820 and Jonathan born about 1819.
I think Jonathans family might be in Illinois but we haven't found connections yet for either.
Any help you have would be great.
Does this help you?
