Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Currently, the only information I have is from the 1860, South Okaw Township, Coles County, IL census. It shows George Spidel, age 58, a farm laborer, born in Penn and Mary, age 53, born in Penn. I am doing this via long distance and haven't gotten up to Illinois to do any research. One of the children listed in this census is David, age 4, born in IL, my GGrandfather.
