Prespierie "Prosper" Tournear

I rarely see our families anywhere online so I thought I would go ahead and post what I have and maybe that will help some of us Tournear researchers find each other and share information. I have mainly been working on John Baptiste Tournier's (John B. Tourney) children from his second wife and since most of them went by the Tournear version of their surname, this was the board I chose. I have been trying to organize what I have for a few people who asked for it and no matter how much I find it always looks incomplete.

Prespierie "Prosper" Tournear was born in May 1842 in Adams County, Illinois, the seventh child of John B. Tourney/Tournier and Mary Catherine Ballot/Belot. He would marry Mildred Mahalia Baugher on 11 Dec 1862 in Adams County, Illinois. He would then move to Missouri, then Iowa, and finally back to Adams County, Illinois where he would die in 1909 and where he was buried. I am having trouble locating marriages for his daughters.
