I am researching my husband's Parker roots. His gggrandfather was William M. Parker from Coles County, Illinois. So far the information I have is as follows:

Willaim M. Parker born 26 Jan 1829 in Coles County IL.
Father William Parker, Mother Rachel Johnson
(NO source except Family Tree)

Married Sarah Daugherty 27 Mar 1851 (No cert. except Ancestry Family Tree)

Children from this marriage:
John L. Parker b. 1852
Susan Emma Parker b. 1855
Amanda Sophhia Parker b.1858 d.1927
Orlando Parker b. 1860
Lydia Abigail Parker b. 1861
Mary Elizabeth Parker b. 1862
William D. Parker b.1866
Levon Orlando Parker b. 1869 d. 1927

1880 Census in Derry, Pike County, IL
shows he is a farmer and listed under his household are
Sarah his wife
Mary E. age 17
William D. age 14
Levon Orlando age 10

1885 Kansas Census Drywood, Bourbon County, KS. shows him
with Sarah, Mary E, William D. and Levon Orlando.

Find-A-Grave shows he died 23 Feb. 1895 in Godfrey, Bourbon County, KS

My husband's family decends from Levon Orlando Parker and I do have census and documents for this line. I would like to find proof of his existence in IL. I have not been able to find any information on Sarah either. Any information on this family would be appreciated. Thanks
