Hi Linda, Good to hear from you again. Thanks for the information about Nancy Bone. I do not know exactly when she died. My dad seem to think that William died about 1917.
I know it was after 1910 because I found them in the 1910 census of Johnson County. They were living next door to George and Ida and also my grandparents Frank and Annie Bone. My dad, who was born in 1907, remembered Nancy and William. The thing that stuck in his mind about them was that he was much taller than she was. I have learned a great deal of information about some of my other ancestors, but still have not found out what happened to our gg-grandparents, William Bone and Fanny Mayo. I know they married in Davidson County, Tn in 1845 and had William in 1846. I have found no trace of them after that. In all of the censuses young William Bone lists his birthplace as Tn. But in censuses after 1900 three of his children (Ed, Mat, and Betty) list their father's birthplace as Illinois. I have looked in the 1850 census of Illinois for William, Fannie, and young William with no luck. Maybe one of these days I will find them. My email addres is still firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to here from you when you have time.
