Hi Alex, Sorry to bother you again but I wanted to let you know that I completely lost track of Robert Paterson when he came to Knox County, IL according to a family story where his wife, Margaret, died and he gave his children away. I can't find a census record of him. He probably remarried but I can't find that information. I don't know where he died although I have a letter written by a granddaughter who stated that he visited them in Schuyler County, IL when she was a small girl and she tells the story that he got on a white mule and said he was going to Florida and that is the last she can remember seeing him. That was probably around 1900. I got another message about another possible daughter, Anna, that I didn't know about. Any info you can find would be appreciated! Thanks for your help.
