Re: Susan Chaplin, 1886

Hi Mark,

Susan shaved her age in later censuses. The 1900 shows her living in Mattoon, Coles Co., IL as a boarder. She's 22 & (supposedly) born Dec 1877. Per the 1900 census that Carol gave you, that's where Robert lived. Also, on the marriage info Carol gave you, she's 24 & it shows she was born in Fancher, IL. Fancher is in Shelby County.

Things to consider:

It's possible she's Ida M. below & that her parents changed her name or she changed her name or she was adopted.

The below Charles & John L. are buried in Dodge Grove cemetery, as is Ellen. (Other family members buried in Dodge Grove also)

Findagrave shows this for where they're buried.....

Plot: 6 D 24-gr.wc

Plot: SEC.: 6, Div.: D, Grv. Spc.: 24-gr.n-c2
(Lot owner, John)

John Luther:
Plot: SEC.: 6, Div.: D, Grv. Spc.: 24-gr.nw1
(Lot owner)

The marriage for John shows his parents as Robert Chaplin &
Ellen Langford.

The marriage for Charles shows Robt. Chaplin & Lankford.

1880: Holland, Shelby Co., Illinois

James Lankford (head) 26 IL>TN>TN Farmer
Mary Lankford (wife) 21 IL>VA>IN Keeping House
Estella Lankford (daughter) 3 IL>IL>IL
Laura Lankford (daughter) 1 IL>IL>IL
Robert Chaplan (head) 31 IL>*KY>*KY Farmer
Ellen Chaplan (wife) 30 IL>TN>TN Keeping House
William Chaplan (son) 8 IL>IL>IL
Charles Chaplan (son) 6 IL>IL>IL
Ida M. Chaplan (daughter) 3 IL>IL>IL <<<<< SUSAN?
John L. Chaplan (son) 3 Months IL>IL>IL (Born in March)
*Matches parental birthplaces in the 1900 census.

In 1870, James "Langford" is 14 & Elenore "Langford" is 20. Parents (assumably) are John & Lizabeth, both born in IL. They reside in Shelbyville, Shelby Co., IL.

In 1860, James "Lankford" is 6 & Elender "Lankford" is 11.
Parents (again assuming) are John & Elizabeth, both born in TN. They reside in Township 9 N Range 5 E, Effingham Co., IL.

In 1850, Elender Lankford is 1. John & Elizabeth both born in TN. They reside in Effingham Co., IL.

In the 1930 census for Harry & Sue, there's 21 year-old Wayne Chaplin, nephew. Wayne belongs to Sue's brother, Roy. Roy lives with his father, Robert, in 1900.
