David Erlewine b. VA abt.1814 mar. Deborah Blair

I am researching David Erlewine. His children are William, Samuel, Catherine, James Wheeler, Barnhart. Lived in Jo Daviess, Illinois.
I know there are some who are already researching this line.
I recently inherited a few Photos from this line. One is a family group I believe to be David and Deborah Erlewine and their children. I am currently trying to get it dated. If I would like to compare the photo to other photos of the siblings. If anyone has any photos, I would like to share and compare.
I would like to know if anyone has tried to find a probate record for David Erleine in Jo Daviess, Ill.
I would like to know if anyone has tried to get Cemetery plot records for Blair cemetery in Jo Davies, Wards Grove, Illinois.
David Erlewine purchased 4000 acred of land in 1848 in Illinois. The acres were sold @ 125.00 per acre for a total of $5000.00. He was a newly married man at that time. Where did he get that kind of cash? I am thinking an inheritance or possibly from William Blair, his Father-in-Law. anyone have any thoughts on this?
Thank you for your time.
