Adkins, Chitwood, Hahn, Phillips, Sexton, Smith Families
I am researching the ADKINS and SMITH. I am also trying to establish a connection to anyone that knows anything at all about the CHITWOOD family that lived in Johnston City in the 1940's and 50's and possibly thereafter. I am trying to connect them to the Scott County, TN Chitwoods. I am somehow related to them. I was born in Johnston City but moved away in 1948 and have just moved back to this area. I have some information on the families that migrated from the Ky-Tennessee border around Scott County, Tennessee to Williamson County in the early 20th century and I will gladly share information with anyone. I have information on the PHILLIPS, HAHN's, SEXTON's and many other families that lived in the Ferges-Jeffrey area during the war years that I will be glad to share.

I am researching any information on Elizabeth FULK HILLIARD JACKSON. She and her first husband (Isaac Hilliard) were living in Massac County when he was killed in a steam sawmill explosion. She then moved with her children, including my great grandfather Thomas, to Williamson County in the Crab Orchard/ New Dennison Area. Her parents Andrew and Jane (Caplinger) Fulk were also living in the area. She remarried to T.B. Jackson in Williamson county. I have found her marriage records. She had several more children and is buried along with her husband in Shed (Mt. Pleasant) cemetery near Crab Orchard. I would like to know when she died (she shares her husbands monument, his dates are listed but not hers). I would also like to know more of her background prior to 1863 when her husband died and she relocated. I would also like to contact any descendants that might have more information

Kelly, Alexander
My gg grandfather Alexander Kelly, b. 29 Dec 1821, in Scioto Co., OH, is my brick wall. His first record of being in Williamson Co, IL is when he enlisted in the Mexican War at Marion IL 28 May 1847. He married Mary Jenette "Polly" Hinchcliff in 1849. They owned land in Carterville Twp. They had six children (John J., William, Allen, Alfred, Alexander R., & Sarah Alice) and moved to Texas Co., MO in late 1869 or early 1870. Alexander died in Texas Co., 19 Jul 1885.
My brick wall is tracing Alexander Kelly back from Williamson Co., IL to Scioto Co., OH to a father and mother. It is unknown if he moved to Williamson Co. with his parents. Alexander's brother is believed to be William Kelly, b 1826, OH, who also resided in Williamson Co., and died there 11 Aug 1856. William was married first to Palina Ann Wiley and second to Emily Sisney. Two other possible siblings are George and Arlene who were said to have moved west with relatives after their mother died.

Mayes, Richard Alexander
Hello, I recently found out exactly where my grandfather was born. It was there in your county in 1880. A couple months after the 1880 census. I'd only heard 'up in Illinois'. I'm in KY. His birthplace is Rock Creek, Ill. But I can't find anything on that name. Is it perhaps one of those small places that disappeared over time, or absorbed into a bigger place? If you wish to put this on your site here is the info:Richard Alexander Mayes b.September 12, 1880 Rock Creek, Williamson Cty, Illinois d.July 8, 1923Parents : Erastus 'Raz' Franklin Mayes & Sarah Elizabeth Chaney Mayes

Merrell, Lafayette
I'm looking for death record of my ggrandfather Lafayette MERRELL died 1898. He really is my brick wall. There is a rare chance that he could be listed as Jonathon L. Merrell. I don't think he is because I believe Jonathon L. was a brother (3 years older than Lafayette) who died very young. It may be that Lafayette was named for the L. in Jonathon's name. Lafayette Merrell was born 1853 in TN (I do not know which county). I tried the Williamson Co. Courthouse and some books at WCHS when I was visiting Williamson Co. last year with no luck. He lived out in the country Thompsonville way and could possibly have been taken to Saline Co. before he died. Also Lafayett/Lafayette is what is on his tombstone. He died in 1898 in either Williamson or Saline Co., IL and is buried at Bethel Church, Williamson Co., IL. I do not know which month he died. He was married to Sarah S. SPRINGS Merrell.

Parks, George
The ancestor Iím trying to find information for is George Parks who was married to Mary. They are listed on the 1790 Federal Census with children including Susan, age 10. I think this is the family I need more information on, however, thereís a gap in information. I canít find more information on those family members until 1900 when Susan was married to Edwin DORSETT and living in Texas (coincidentally Williamson County, Texas) where I still live. My mother knew her grandmother, Susan. The only specific information she knew about her though was that she was full blood Cherokee Indian. I was confused when I found them in the census because the family is shown to be farmers but then I found information that indicates the Cherokee Indians were in fact, farmers. I know that not all Cherokee Indians were removed to Oklahoma but I canít find information that explains why or who stayed. Also, the 30 year gap is a mystery. When did they leave Illinois and why; and where were they during the 30 year missing time frame? There are some ďParksĒ in the Indian rolls but without a little more information I canít tell which may be the ones Iím looking for. Any help is appreciated.

I am searching for a town or area by the name of Shreveport, Illinois. My great-grandfather's death certificate says he was born there, but I have not been able to find there was ever a town by that name. My ggrandfather's name was Eugene Shelley, born July 8, 1853, and I would really like to find some kind of record of his birth or of his father and mother's names. The nearest clue I have is that John Alexander, born at Shreveport, IL on 29 Dec 1821, moved his wife and children to Missouri in 1869 from Williamson County, IL. Hope you, or someone, can help me.

Short, Elisha F.
My first "brick wall" is Elisha F. SHORT. In 1900 he, with his wife & children, were living in Herrins Prairie. By 1920 census, his wife was a widow. I can't locate him in the death index, so it appears that he died prior to 1916. I can't find anyone with the 1910 census to see if he was still alive or if he died prior to that census. His wife's name was Mary & in the 1920 census was living in W. Marion Precinct.

UPDATE:I am seeking the date of death/place of death and burial place of Elisha Farris Short. Date of death is "presumed" to be between 1904 and 1916; we know for certain that he was deceased by the time of the 1920 census. He was b. about 1858 in Franklin Co., IL; his spouse was Mary Margaret Ann Webb. At the time of the 1900 census, they were living at Herrin's Prairie in Williamson Co and Elisha's occupation was listed as coal miner although he had been a farmer. Elisha and his wife had several children: Everett; Elsie; Marion; Raymond; Roy; "Candy"; Leo. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Contact Carol Garbo  with any information.

Sizemore/Chew
I am researching on both sides of the family pre-1936 all the way back as far as I can. William Ira Sizemore, married to Nancy Chew, are my grandparents. The Chews have a large family tree dating back to the Jamestown, VA settlers and the Revolutionary War. I have more if you wish. I've just recently started my research. Then my mother, Mary Sizemore, passed away in July and I have no more resourses for info than letters and pics dating back to the Civil War. I found some old pics in Herrin in the 20's & 30's, too. I am trying to re-construct the Sizemore family while they were living in Herrin. My grandmother, Nannie Chew, was born in Sato, IL just north of Ava where I used to spend summers. We stayed one summer in the "old one room school house" across from the farm (cousin, Modgelin farm) where my great aunt used to teach in the early 1900's. Sato is gone now, I'm told. I know much of the info from 1936 on, when they moved to Miami, from my mother, aunts and grandmother. Any research references will be greatly appreciated as I am just now getting into the Herrin history of the family. Thanking you in advance.

    Smith Cemetery on Spillway Road
    I am David Smith, a descendant of the Smith's whose cemetery is on Spillway road. I am working to compile family history and I need help. I have analyzed census records and published records and find disconnects in some of the information.
    For example, I have an article published in one of the local papers stating that the founder James Smith came from Virginia just ahead of the Civil War. The census records between 1820-1840 indicate that he was born in Illinois, 1821. Further investigation suggests that he might have been neighbor to John Smith who was indeed from Virginia and old enough to be his father. I think I may have even located John and his wife in Augusta county, Virginia.
    However, I would like to try to firm up several of these linkages. I would like to find or publish the Smith history if it has not been done previously. The article I am referring to has no date was probably published in the 70's. It talks about a long standing tradition of Smith-Bulliner reunions each year? It talks of Miles Smith of Carterville. Because I am in Libertyville, IL, I need some help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • James David Smith (father, deceased, Batavia, IL)
    • James David 'Dave' Smith (grandfather, Spillway cemetery)
    • W. Scott Smith (great-grandfather, Spillway cemetery)
    • James Smith (great-great-grandfather 1821-1871, founder, Spillway cemetery)
    • John Smith (????)

    Contact David Smith(cell phone number available upon request to webmaster) with any information.

    I am researching my family line of WALKERs. My gggrt grandmother was Julia A. WALKER. She moved from Union County to Williamson County around 1870-1873. She lived in the Lake Creek township with her children, Wesley, Mary, and William. On December 9, 1877, she married a Joseph SANDERS and about a year later he died and was buried at "Sanders Farm". Wesley married Mary PETERSON and lived in Lake Creek. In the 1880 census, Julia and Mary were living in the same household. Next to them was William H. WALKER, his wife Elizabeth, and children Charley D., James R. and Eliza. On September 1881, Mary Ann married a James H. ALBRIGHT. On the marriage certificate Julia SANDERS' maiden was listed as GOINGS with a question mark beside it. I am attempting to find out what happened to Julia and what was her maiden name.

    The Union soldier I am searching lived in Crab Orchard Precinct in 1880 and East Marion Township in 1910. Since I consult Heritage Quest through a local library for Census reports, its results are not always satisfactory. The soldier's name is Allen H. WILSON and he served in Company C, 31st Illinois Infantry. He had a daughter, Myrtle Wilson CORDER, who joined the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War in 1941, in San Diego. Her application says she was born in Crab Orchard, Ill. I think SSDI lists her death in San Bernardino, CA, January 23, 1968, at the age of 85. In one of your links I found that Allen H. Wilson died January 13, 1920 and is buried in East Marion Twp but I am unable to identify the specific cemetery where he might be buried.
