CODER and FAULKNER in Mason County, IL 1840s
Posted by: Patricia Kelley (ID *****8550) Date: January 23, 2005 at 14:27:14

I am researching the family of my great great great grandfather REV. WILLIAM J. CODER, a Methodist Episcopal minister. William went from PA to Mason County (then Tazewell) IL about 1838 with his wife and several sons and settled near Havana,IL.
I do not know William's wife's name.
Their sons were: DAVID J. CODER, born 1812 Luzerne County, PA; GEORGE H. CODER, born 1814, PA; ELISHA B. CODER, born 1820, PA; WILLIAM CODER, ROBERT CODER, NELSON H. CODER, and one whose name is unknown to me.
WILLIAM J. CODER died in Mason County on 15 December 1840.
NELSON H. CODER died in Mason County 17 July 1840 age 18.
I am looking for any information on this family, particularly the names of William's wife and 7th son.
I have an obituary for William from the Danville, PA, paper, but it only relates William's work as a minister and while it mentions his wife and sons, does not name them. The History of Mason County states that William was a physician as well as a minister. I would love to find an obituary from Mason County.
William's son DAVID J. CODER married (MARY) ELIZABETH FAULKNER, daughter of ROBERT FAULKNER, in Mason County on 22 April, 1841. One of the first marriages in the county.
Another of William's sons, ELISHA B. CODER married in Mason County ELIZA WILLARD FAULKNER, daughter of THOMAS FAULKNER, on 18 December 1844.
Any help woud be appreciated. Thanks.
