I am researching the family of my great great great grandfather REV. WILLIAM J. CODER, a Methodist Episcopal minister. William was in the area of Danville, PA, in the 1830s. He went to Mason County (then Tazewell) IL about 1838 with his wife and 7 sons and settled near Havana,IL. Their son GEORGE H. CODER remained behind in Danville where he married ALIDA PITNER, and in 1850 George and his family moved to Shamokin, PA.
I do not know William's wife's name.
Their sons were: DAVID J. CODER, born 1812 Luzerne County, PA; GEORGE H. CODER, born 1814, PA; ELISHA B. CODER, born 1820, PA; WILLIAM CODER, ROBERT CODER, NELSON H. CODER, and one whose name is unknown to me.
William died in Mason County on 15 December 1840.
I am looking for any information on this family, paticularly the names of William's wife and 7th son. I would also like to know the names of William's parents and where he was born.
I have an obituary for William from the Danville paper, but it only relates William's work as a minister and while it mentions his wife and sons, does not name them. The History of Mason County, IL, states that William was a physician as well as a minister.
George and Alida of Shamokin had 8 children:
HARRIET CODER (died in childhood); MARY ELLEN CODER born 1842, PA; JOHN CODER (died in Civil War); WILLIAM CODER (died in childhood); DARIUS CODER born 1847, PA; ABNER PITNER CODER, born 1848, PA; REBECCA CODER (died in childhood; and GEORGE CODER (died in childhood).
Any help woud be appreciated. Thanks.
