Ted, I have found John Wesley Pylands mother.Her name was Rebecca Jane Pylant and she married Allen S Finley, 25 may 1847 in Johnson County Illinois. I found Wes living with his half brother Jason B. Finley in Williamson County Illinois on the 1900 Williamson County Illinois Census. I expect that since John Wesley was born in 1845 in Tennessee that his father died and for some reason unknown at this time, Rebecca moved to Illinois and married Allen Finley. Later, 1 march 1857 it appears she married again to David Vaughn in Johnson County and then on 29 Dec 1870 she married Rufus Bean who lived just 4 houses from my gggrandfather Ferrell Morris. His son, James Francis Morris married John Wesley's daughter Rosa Bell Pyland 2 sept 1894 in Johnson County Illinois. Now all I have to do is establish her maiden name and Johns fathers name but I have a lot of new leads. I will let you know how it turns out. Scott
