Eliza Paul was born in 1840 and christened at Isle Abbotts Parish in Somersetshire, England. Her entire family came to the United States in 1844.

We are trying to find her descendants to learn more about her and to determine if all the following details apply to her.

An Eliza Paul and an Alfred A. Bennett applied 3 October 1857 for a marriage license in Kendall County, Illinois.

It is believed Eliza had six living children at the time of her death. Is one of these children Rose Ella Bennett that was born 29 December 1872 at Gardner, Grundy County, Illinois and married 23 September 1891 at Powell, Park County, Wyoming to Leland Edward Jones? What are the names of her other children?

On 23 November 1898 a Mrs. Eliza (Paul) Bennett and an Edward M. Wheeler applied for a marriage license in Boone County, Illinois.

Family records indicated that Aunt Eliza Wheeler wrote a letter from Zion City, Illinois in 1912 and lived there in her later years.

Is the death record for an Eliza Wheeler on 22 January 1934 at Zion City, Lake County, Illinois for her.

Any help you can offer would be most appreciated.
