I have additional infomation on my Persinger connection in Clay Co., IL. My gggreat grandmother, Martha Carter, married John Persinger on 7/6/1884. It was her first marriage and his third. I am not sure who the other two wives were at this point. We have not been able to find any marriage record for Martha Carter and Merrell Wheat, Sr. Their son, Merrill Wheat, Jr., was apparently raised by his Aunt Fanny Brooks and his grandmother, Sarah Carter, who married William Brooks, Jr. Have you ever come across a John Persinger in your Persinger searches? We are uncertain what happened to him or where he is buried. We found Martha Persinger buried in Brooks Cemetery, between Bible Grove and Ingraham, in Clay Co., IL. Curious to hear what you have to say.
