Since my last posting I have some new information.
I went to the IRAD despository at SIUC towards the end of the summer. I found some interesting things.
I found the marriage certificate for the people I believe to be my great grandparents, Benjamin King and Catherine Petitt. I also found the marriage entry for her parents, Hiram Petitt and Caroline Mansker, from Randolph County, Illinois.
I also found a death entry for the Alexander County Poor Farm for a Katy King, but it wasn't in 1894, but 1908. She was a widow of the right age to be Catherine Petitt, daughter of Caroline Mansker and Hiram Petitt.
Does anyone have access to poor farm records for Alexander County, Illinois in 1908?
