Hello Kristy:
I just came across your message re Sylvester Lough dated Jan. 2001. I'm a descendant of his older brother Uriah Burns Lough (1827-1893) who was born and died in Lewis Co., VA/WV, but spent several years in Clay Co., IL in the 1860's and 70's before moving back to Lewis County.
Phil and Sally Lough had 12 children that survived infancy, 10 that grew to adulthood, and 9 that married and had children. Sylvester is the only child who left West Virginia permanently. Have you located a death record or burial site for Sylvester yet? Do you know whether he lived with or near relatives when he lived in Illinois? He had at least one uncle and several aunts in Clay and Richland counties, IL starting in the 1850's or so.
I have a photo of father Philip Lough (1793-1872) and am just starting to collect photos of the children. No photo of wife Sally Fisher. Also have a photo of the tombstone of Philip Lough's father, George Lough, who died in 1817 in Randolph Co., VA (now Webster Co., WV). Do you have a photo of Sylvester? Please contact me at if you would like to trade info or photos. THANKS!
Susan Lough Kiley
