BOLES, BOWLS
Debra Bergmann 30 Jul 2012

Looking for information on James Boles/Bowls who died in 1852. He was married to Elizabeth York, although I have not been able to find the exact location/date of their marriage. I can’t determine their whereabouts in 1850 either, although in 1860 their three boys are living with 3 different families. I’m also hoping to find the location of James and Elizabeth’s gravesites. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this elusive family and I’d be happy  to share any info I have.

ARENZ
Allene Arenz Boyle 23 Aug 2012

My name is Allene Arenz Boyle and I am 95 years old. I have decided it’s time to visit the village my great granddaughter Francis Arenz founded. My grandfather is Henry H. Arenz and my father is Walter Francis Arenz. I plan to arrive this October (2012) around the 9th or 10th to spend a few days visiting Arenzville and Beardstown. I would love to meet other family members and make acquaintances with the wonderful citizens of Arenzville. I am looking forward to this trip since I was a little girl listening to my father talk about his childhood in Illinois.

JACKSON
Donna Rideout 15 Mar 2012

Still searching for information on Milton JACKSON's father (known only as the "Elder" JACKSON in any family stories so far).

"Elder" JACKSON and his first wife were born in Maryland. They were in Ohio in 1804 for the birth of Milton. The family then moved to Kentucky in 1806 and stayed there until 1815. They moved to Carter Township, Spencer Co., Indiana in 1815. His wife died in 1818 of "milk sickness." "Elder" JACKSON married three more times and was the father of a total of fifty (50) children. He eventually moved to Cass County, Illinois, and died there about 1846. Some of his children moved with him and set up households in the same county, but I can't make any connections.If anyone has a JACKSON line from Spencer or Perry Counties, Indiana or Cass County, Illinois, please contact me to see if we can connect families.
